    I recently purchased a Sony PSP, and have been attempting to connect to my computer for the past few days. I connected the device to my computer using a USB cable and attempted to use the Windows Hardware Update Wizard to install the necessary drivers for it as instructed. For some reason, immediately after installation begins I get the following Error Message:

    There was a problem installing this hardware:

    PSP Type A

    An Error occured during the installation of the device

    Insufficient system resources exist to complete the requested service.


    When I attempted to do the same on another computer, it worked just fine.

    If I could get any assistance on why I'm getting the message, and how I can fix it I would greatly appreciate it. I've done alot of reading up until now trying to see if any others have had the same problem I am having now, but I was unable to find any problems remotely related to my own. I'm not too familiar on how driver installation's work, but I do know for a fact that I am not lacking 'system resources'.

    What kind of device is it?

    Please let us know the make, model, and the version of the software you are using to install it?

    Also have you installed the latest Windows updates?

    I'd guess the best way to describe it, is that it's a 'storage' device. It's supposed to be Windows XP compatable, so I used the automatic hardware wizard on Windows to install it on both my machine and my friend's machine. The same exact way, and my machine just halts the installation as soon as it begins.

    I'm using Windows XP Pro SP2, should be fully updated.

    I suspect some of the USB drivers have become corrupted. To fix Run: SFC /SCANNOW

    If that does not fix the problem, see: http://www.microsoft.com/whdc/device/storage/usbfaq.mspx

    It discusses how Microsoft has provided a new miniport (usbehci.sys) driver and an updated usbport.sys and usbhub.sys driver to support USB 2.0 on Windows 2000 and Windows XP. And you can download the latest version to try to fix your problem.

    I tried both of your suggestions. I ran the scan, still kept getting the same error message. The driver you and the article described, I already have it. :(

    It's really weird because when I connect the device to my machine I get a sound from my speakers acknowledging it, and another sound when I disconnect it as well, but I still can't access it. It's mocking me...

    You may have the driver, but it may corrupted, so you should replace it to see if it fixes the problem.
