Latest Linux distributions should be able to detect PSP automatically. You may want to examine the kernel messages with dmesg to see what device the PSP was recognized as:

$ dmesg
Linux version 2.6.8.1-5-686 ([email protected]) (gcc version 3.3.4 (Debian 1:
3.3.4-9ubuntu5)) #1 Wed Aug 17 23:34:53 UTC 2005
BIOS-provided physical RAM map:

[…] lots of output deleted […]

scsi0 : SCSI emulation for USB Mass Storage devices
Vendor: Sony Model: PSP Rev: 1.00
Type: Direct-Access ANSI SCSI revision: 02
USB Mass Storage device found at 2
usbcore: registered new driver usb-storage
USB Mass Storage support registered.
SCSI device sda: 487936 512-byte hdwr sectors (250 MB)
sda: Write Protect is off
sda: Mode Sense: 00 6a 20 00
sda: assuming drive cache: write through
/dev/scsi/host0/bus0/target0/lun0: p1



If however your PSP is not automatically detected, run the command modprobe usb-storage as the root user and run dmesg again, check its output. You should be able to identify the device, you can mount it with the following commands (if it was identified as sda, you want to use sda1, as the first partition):


$ sudo mount /dev/sda1 /mnt -o uid=$USER
$ ls -l /mnt/
total 128
-rwxr--r-- 1 me root 5125 2005-09-04 12:35 index.html
-rwxr--r-- 1 me root 4060 2005-09-04 12:34 make_index.pl
-r-xr--r-- 1 me root 0 2005-01-30 22:28 memstick.ind
drwxr--r-- 4 me root 32768 2005-09-02 22:50 mp_root
-r-xr--r-- 1 me root 0 1979-12-31 23:00 mstk_pro.ind
drwxr--r-- 9 me root 32768 2005-04-08 23:55 psp




The sudo command will let you to run mount as root user, and the -o uid $USER tells Linux to mount it so that the currently logged-in user is the owner of the files on the stick.

How to connect PSP to Mac OS X?

[Image: 23d6adfc40.jpg]


First of all, you need to have a PSP folder on your desktop for this procedures to work

1. Run the Terminal in /Applications/Utilities/ then type the following in command line,


open /Volumes//PSP/SAVEDATA/


2. Replace with the actual name of the memory card as it is displayed as mounted on the desktop. Usually, it will be "Untitled." If the name has been changed to something like "My PSP Card," then you will need to add an \ before the space in the name. For example, if your Memory Stick were named "My PSP Card" you would type the following:


open /Volumes/My\PSP\Card/PSP/SAVEDATA/


3. Press Return. Then the folder in the Finder would open, then drag all the files that you want to your Mac.
However, if you want this process to be GUI-free, just type the commands:


cd /Volumes/Untitled/PSP/SAVEDATA/
cp -R * ~/Desktop/PSP/



Hit Return after each line. The first cd command will change the directory of the mounted Memory Stick (In this case it called Untitled) to the SAVEDATA folder. The cp -R command will then copy all the files and folders within this folder into a folder called PSP on your desktop.
