PSP [Playstation portable] not recognized by Windows 7 RC Build 7100

    Question

  • Hello all,

    I have a PSP [Series 1003]. Firmware : 6.10 [latest] . My PC's OS : Windows 7 64Bit RC Build 7100. Ever since i installed Win7 in my PC [new PC] , it was not able to recognize my PSP.
    In the PSP it shows "Please Wait" when in USB mode. The USB ports of my PC are fine, because all other devices work properly [printer,joystick,Pen-Drive,external HDD -these are all what i've already used] . 

    Sometimes it shows it is properly connected, but when i go inisde the mem stick [from My Computer] it shows that the card is empty [I have songs,games,videos,other PSP folders etc in the mem card]. Otherwise it shows that the driver is not available etc.. PSP usually does not need a special driver as it act as a mass storage device.

    It works properly in my laptop , OS : Windows XP Home Edition SP3. I have not tried connecting my PSP to any other win7 computers since i dont have any other.

    Please help me with this.

    Thank You

  • Hello again to all,

    Sorry that i didn't reply for a long time. I've been away.

    My problem with PSP have been solved, surprisingly the solution was 
    "Tried connecting the PSP to a port behind my tower instead of the ports in the front panel".
    I tried this because i read something similar in some other forum . I don't understand how or why it worked.
    Also how and why it did not work. I dont think my USB ports have any problem because all other devices work 
    properly. 

    Thanks for all your help.

    Regards,

  • Does the PSP show up in device manager? And If yes, does it have a yellow triangle with a bang (!) as its icon?

  • It doesn't say "PSP" but "USB Mass Storage Device" with "!" in a triangle .

  • That triangle indicates that its a problem with the USB driver, try Right clicking on the device > Properties > Driver (Tab) > Update Driver > Search Automatically

  • Hi,

    Please perform Anthony's suggestion first. If the issue persists, please refer to the following steps.

    1. Reinstall USB Controllers.

    2. Open Device Manager, right click the "USB Mass Storage Device" with the exclamation mark and click "Uninstall". Reboot the system for a test.

    What's the result?

    Thanks,
    Novak

  • I am not all that familiar with the PSP, but connect it like you usually do, check in the device manager and tell it to scan for hardware changes. It should install the driver you need, if not, then do a Windows Update while it is plugged in. If it still doesn't work, then try to find the drivers for it online and use the device manager to update it to those. 
    I LOST THE GAME!!!!
