    it either is or it isnt! My mobile phone's data transfer cable is USB and one of the perks of it is that it charges it using USB so either they must have a cable with USB that will charge or they wont. I advise dont go sticking things that arent meant to go into it as it will void any warranty you may have. 8)

    as Zim has said, plug your cable in and keep your fingers crossed.

    Just to answer the question, you can't use a straight USB lead to charge your PSP. There are USB charger leads available and the have 2 seperate connections on them. 1 is a mini USB for data transfer and the other is a plug for the power connector. 2 seperate ports on the PSP.

    Look like this and should cost no more than a fiver.
