Is PSP capable of working with USB Flash drives and USB keyboards?

I thought the psp's USB port was only a slave device, which would mean it can only connect to a host (PC etc) and as such is unable to communicate with nor supply power to attached devices.

But it seems to talk and supply power to the new camera/gps attachments so I guess I was wrong.
Having said that, until there's software for the psp to allow either of those things, neither are possible.

So no, you cannot currently attach a USB keyboard or flash drive to your PSP. I wouldnt hold my breath on either.

There's "USB Host" option in IRSHELL. It can use a PC as big memorystick. So i think - flashdrives can be possible also. Of course you need special homebrews for it - but i can't see any movements in that direction.

And if there's ChottoShotto with USB plug - then there must be the way to plug any WebCam. And keyboards too.

I'm just curious - if there's someone who already worked on this task. Someone who can say "I tried but it seems impossible because of ...."...

there was also talk about how the usb port on the psp didn't suppy power but it seems that it does so power for a flashdrive shouldn't be a problem.

Very neat idea. What keyboards would be compatible?

So are you saying that the keyboard connects directly to the psp, or it goes through the computer which then gives data to the psp through something like wifi?

Or... something totally over my n00bish head

It probly will go straight to the psp but if now it might go thorough the comp to boost the signial...
