Hi, My computer used to run Windows 98SE, I upgraded to Windows ME about two years ogo, and about twelve months ago, I bought a PSP. I downloaded video's, MP3's, jpeg's etc, no problem, via USB cable. Last week the computer threw a wobblie, and I had to take it to a shop to be repaired, and I have just got it back. They formatted the hard disk(Deleted everything), and re-installed Windows ME. Anyway, today, I tried downloading something, and the computer can't see the PSP, normally it is drive G Removeable disk, but it just isn't there. I have tried changeing settings, but it just won't see it. I have looked on some other web sites, who sugest a Windows 98 driver may be required, which I would have had originally, before the re-instalation of ME. Can anyone give me any advice here please. After fiddleing for a while, I did get the PSP to be recognised by the PC, and did an update to 3.1, but now I can't get it back again. :whistling: I get the usb connection icon next to the clock, and in MY COMPUTER/CONTROL PANNEL/SYSTEM, under DEVICE MANAGER/DISK DRIVES, it lists SONY PSP as a disk drive, when connected, but won't show up in
"MY COMPUTER". Help Please.

May sound silly, but do you have your PSP in USB Mode?

Turn the PSP on, go ALL THE WAY TO THE VERY LEFT MENU, select and run "USB Mode", then plug in.

Sorted it, If I plug the PSP in, and go to USB mode, "My Computer" can't see the PSP as an external drive.
If I switch the PSP and computer off, cannect the USB cable, switch PSP on, switch on USB mode, (PSP says connect cable, as PC is off), switch PC on, and PSP is an external drive in "My Computer". It only seams to see it, if it's connected at boot up, should it see it at any time I plug it in? At least its working now.
