    Hey! So, i'm sure this has been asked before, but I've tried all of the solutions I've seen so far, and none of them worked.
    So, my issue is that whenever i connect a USB cable to my PSP, I get a screen that says "Please wait..." and it won't go away. My software version is 5.50 Prome-2. (I didn't install that CFW myself, so i don't have experience on that)

    • I've tried multiple cables, they all have the same result. I know my cable can transmit both data and power.
    • The cable worked on Windows 7, and it worked with Media Go as well. (I'm currently running Windows 10)
    • Tried bending the cable and moving it around.
    • Tried switching between Flash0, Flash1, Flash2 etc. modes in the recovery
    • Tried looking in the Device Manager: No PSP, nor "USB Storage device" (Or something along those lines) with an exclamation mark show up.
    Okay! Any help with the issue would be much appreciated, I've been trying to figure this out for a while now. I hope to find some replies from here, since i originally posted to another forum, receiving around 400 views but no replies. Anyway, any help would be much appreciated :D

    why
    I just realized, is the psp set to charge from usb at all times? I remember hearing that being an issue somewhere. Also... i'm not sure how well the pcp would enjoy switching CFWs, i would suggest switching to ME

    It sounds like the OP has the 1000. Charging via USB started on the 2000.

    I'm not sure if you are using the same system or cable. Try other ports and another cable. If those still don't work then try installing the type B libusb driver. I have had some devices detect and fail to install yet don't show up as missing a driver in the device manager in Windows 10 (and others). If only for transferring to the MSPD then maybe just get a reader.

    I'm sure i have the 2000, and i have turned off USB charging. I'm also sure it doesn't charge via USB despite. I've tried many cables, making sure they're data not just power, and different ports too. I'll try libusb though, thanks for that :)

    EDIT:

    Not sure how to install the driver, since Windows never asks for a driver, it doesn't even recognize the device. The PSP knows it's connected via USB, and a couple of times I've heard the device connection sound on Windows, but it never asks for a driver, and never shows up in device manager (or my computer).

    I've let the battery die many times, it didn't help.

    see what appears on the disk list, if psp is there or not...
    be carefull, don't change stuff around on normal HDD, just check if the psp shows up on the list and if it's mounted or not

    Well i pulled out my computer from some drawer, fired it up, and it's so slow that i couldn't even open the start menu, and the Manage thing doesn't work either. So i can't do it on that PC. Also, it doesn't have Windows 7 anymore, i updated right before i got a new one...

    I wonder if using a powered USB hub would work. Maybe it has something to do with the current from the ports? You should probably just restore/format, reinstall the old computer to use as a PSP bitch or get a media read that supports MS/PD.

    I was thinking about getting a reader for PSP MemorySticks, and technically that would solve the problem, but then i couldn't record the PSP screen, which I've always wanted to try to do. I'm going to try to downgrade my computer to Windows 7, but I'm not sure if it'll let me, since it's already been over 30 days since i upgraded. (I can only hope that it wasn't counting time while switched off in the drawer :P) I could try the powered USB hub, but since I'm not sure it would work, and I don't have one, I'd just be wasting money by buying one if it doesn't.

    EDIT: Yep, its not letting me downgrade anymore. Could reinstall Win10 but dunno...

    EDIT 2: The old PC started to work a bit better now. Still nothing in My Computer/This PC and nothing in Computer Management -> Disk Management. Nothing in device manager either. Trying to download MediaGo now, see if that sees anything. (Probably not, but it's worth a shot, right?)

    EDIT 3: MediaGo didn't work either.

    Take a look at this. It seems possibly related.

    I looked at it, but for me it no longer makes the sound, and all other devices work. I can try it though, but i don't believe it'll help.
