    My PSP Slim (3100) will not connect to my PC. It's version is 4.21. My PC says that it installing driver software, but then it says it failed and cannot recognize the device. I can plug in Memory Sticks, USB mouses, and USB Huds and they give no problems. My PC runs off of Windows 7 Ultimate 64x, and it is a HP Pavillion dv5 1017-nr. It has crashed one time, but idk if that is the problem.

    Mine works fine with windows 7

    you are remembering to pick the USB connection option in the PSP, right? I think Windows usually shouts at me if I forget to do that.

    Turn off USB charging and try again

    If not try plugging it in, go to device manager (Control Panel > Hardware and sound > Device Manager), find the PSP (This is off the top of my head so I might be wrong but I think it should be in disk drives) then uninstall it.

    Unplug and plug the PSP back in and Windows 7 should install the drivers for you (Just in case something messed up the first time)
