Connected my PSP to my computer for the first time today and Vista doesn't
seem to install any drivers.

It comes up with "PSP Type A" detected... but no drivers?

Anyone got any ideas?

Thanks,
- Mark

Idea: Contact Sony or go to Sony web site for a Vista
software update for the PSP.

Exactly what model do you have and how is it connected to
your computer?

I couldn't find anything either. But Sony will have to be
the source of the fix/resolution.

You might have better luck finding a PSP forum.

I have a PSP, but I don't see any problems while using it with Vista.

What problems do You exactly see? Yes it doesn't load any drivers, but if
You open "my computer" You will see the memory card of the PSP there.

I am seeing this as well on Vista.

On Windows 2000, I plug it in, go to USB Mode, and get a "installing device driver" message, then the icon shows up in Explorer.

On Windows XP SP2, I plug it in, turn on USB mode, and it instantly works. It uses the system default USB Storage driver, which is perfect.

On Windows Vista Ultimate, I plug it in, get "no device driver for this device."

The device is "compatible ID":
USB\Class_08&SubClass_05&Prot_50

Steps to get it to work:

The actual problem is a corrupt inf or pnf file, usually. INFCACHE.1 gets corrupted somehow, and then devices aren't recognized that should be.

To repair it:

Go to C:\Windows\Inf

Right click on INFCACHE.1

Go to properties

Go to security

Go to advanced

Click Edit

Click users

Grant Users "Full Control"

Apply and OK until you're back at explorer

Right click INFCACHE.1

Choose rename

Press end

Type .old

Press enter

Go to device Manager

Right click "PSP Type A"

Choose update device

Choose "Find the driver automatically"

Vista will look for an update online

Vista will report "Installing USB Mass Storage"

PSP will work

Note: while this problem is occurring, you cannot actually get any new hardware or software to work. The PSP is just a symptom of the corrupt driver database, and rebuilding the database will very likely clear it.

If it doesn't, usually moving all the oem* files out of that inf directory to somewhere else (move them so you have them if you need them) and then repeating the above will fix it.

Sometimes other inf files will get corrupt; if none of this helps, call Microsoft, tell them you've got a corrupt inf/pnf file, and they'll walk you through how to identify and correct the problem. 9 times out of 10, just renaming the file is enough to fix it though.
