transfering files to psp results in corrupt files all the time

for those that remember I asked this before but couldn't really continue on that as I was building a new computer with I'm on now.. I plug the psp in the computer and then click open and then simply drag and drop but it very rarely works as most of the time I get corrupted data on the psp you might think it's the usb cable but I have 3 or 4 I can use and I never use the same one twice almost and it's still the same.. and the only thing that was used from my old computer is the hard drive and yes I did reinstall fedora and am even trying out the 64bit version I hate to say this but I'm leaning towards this might be an issue with fedora :\ or maybe in linux in general.. I have windows xp installed under vmware and it transfers fine under there but I hate being a slave to windows lol can someone please help me?

Wish I could, but since I have absolutely no problems transferring files from any linux to my PSP

I can't.

Only thing I can say is make sure you are unmounting it before escaping USB mode on the PSP. Though I've never gotten corrupted data from doing that, just data that never made it.

Also, what firmware version are you running ? official or custom ?

I'm running custom firmware, I've read a post that said to try unmounting before that.. I tried it once but it didn't work I don't think it's because of the firmware differences though because I'm sure it happened even when I first received the psp.. just data that never made it? lol.. wouldn't that result in corruption though :X if this helps anyone.. when sending files to the psp the speed doesn't stay the same.. I'm not talking about it dropping a little I mean it will actually stop completely and then start up where it left off.. it says stalled I've tried the usb slots from a usb hub and the slots from the computer with are 2.0 and both do the same thing

Nope, no half file, or corrupted data, just not there.

I run 3.40* LE with no problems aside from game sharing not working, which I don't really care about anyways. I did have some issues with the M33 firmwares though.

Make sure any USB settings in your BIOS make sense, and have you checked "dmesg" to see if there is anything useful there while this is going on.

Yup, just plug the drive in, maybe copy a picture over then unmount it and run

dmesg

in a terminal. The last lines will show what took place when you plugged in the drive, for example plugging in a thumbdrive gives me this :

Code:
usb 2-5: new high speed USB device using ehci_hcd and address 6
usb 2-5: configuration #1 chosen from 1 choice
Initializing USB Mass Storage driver...
scsi8 : SCSI emulation for USB Mass Storage devices

usb-storage: waiting for device to settle before scanning
usbcore: registered new interface driver usb-storage

As far as the BIOS go sometimes you will have multiple options related to USB, so just have a look around and make sure they are enabled.

Edit - Here's the output from my PSP

Code:
usb 2-5: new high speed USB device using ehci_hcd and address 7
usb 2-5: configuration #1 chosen from 1 choice
scsi9 : SCSI emulation for USB Mass Storage devices
usb-storage: device found at 7
