    Silly question, is it actually in USB mode? Settings > USB Connection.

    Use a different USB port / use a different USB cable

    Check the port of the PSP. My Go is like that, turns out the port is split in the middle. Still charges perfectly fine, but usb connections don't work.

    edit: Just remembered the regular PSP uses a generic cable... Oh well, could still check it out for damage.

    If it was a driver issue it'd try to connect and Windows would tell you about it. It sounds like the port on the PSP, or the cable are bad.

    It should work perfectly fine on that setup. Definitely a faulty cable or port, then.

    Also it might be a charging cable not a data cable

    Is there a difference? Pretty sure all USB cables are data cables unless you short out the data pins.

    Maybe it can also be from the memory card itself.
