    Hey guys, I need some help.

    I was trying to connect my old, fat PSP to my old, fat PS3 via USB cable so I could install the LUNAR demo onto the PSP. I have all the most current firmware updates but have never registered the two units together (just to get that bit of information out of the way). For some reason or another, when I try to connect to the PS3, the PSP keeps insisting that there is no USB cable plugged in. I tried all four USB ports on my PS3 and two different USB cables and still nada.

    Anybody got any suggestions (besides me sending them to you for free ;)  ) on how to get both machines to play nice nice?

    Thanks!

    Is the PSP fully charged? I remember it not playing nice without a mostly fully charged battery, but that was many moons ago.

    When you hook your PSP to your PS3 your tv should say PS3 is in remote play. If not then put your PSP in usb mode and sync the two units. After that you should be able to communicate wireless to your PS3. They have step by step instructions on Playstation website.
