You have a memory stick in the unit and have set it to USB mode (scroll all the way to the left in the psp's menu and go up to usb mode, press x)?

Try unplugging all usb devices and reconnecting them, another usb port for the psp, getting rid of some of those virtual drives (unless you actually have 6 cd/dvd drives), keep refreshing (F5) my computer.

My pc did something similar once when i first got my pc, it said it detected it but no drive came up, swapped it to another port, it found it again and that time it mounted the mstick as a drive properly.

If none of that does anything im all out of ideas, sorry. You could try looking for a windows xp mass storage driver and installing it, with xp and the latest service pack you really shouldn't need to do that though, strange problem.

EDIT: also try another usb cable if you have one

I've seen cables cause alot of problems. bad cables, wrong type (even though they look like usb cables, some mobile phone types are not proper usb).

I suspect in your case though, since you have so many drives, perhaps the PSP was using a drive letter you already had in use. If this happens you can go into disk management and change the drive letters.

No probs emickz.

Windows should keep assigning drive letters through to z, it just seems to be a bit iffy with usb mass storage sometimes *shrug*
