Connect a Sony memory stick to Xbox

Does anybody have any idea how to connect a sony memory stick to a modded xbox? I asked on xbox-scene.org and was ignored. I was thinking that if I could do this then I could create interconnectivity between emulators on a modded xbox and a psp, which would be pretty cool so I could take my snes and nes games on the road. I have the keyboard adapter, which is usb female to xbox controllerport male, and I have a variety of flash memory readers. I cannot get my xbox to recognize the flash memory in any reader in either xcommander, xbox media center etc, although the flash memory readers are getting power from the xbox.
Does anybody have any ideas about how to get something like this to work?

i`m not sure the x-box-usb-proprietary-ctrller recognizes something different from a hid (or something close to it...).
surely your adapter gets power, because the mains is simply loopedthroughed to the usb-port.

i don`t think it`ll work guy, sorry...

any other method of connection?

Can anyone think of another method of connecting a USB memory stick adapter to an xbox? even if it means splicing a wire. I know xbox controller ports are just modified usb adapters.

I read your post and was wondering if beyond the microsoft offical usb keyboard adapter there might be a second way. I know some people made usb ports on the xbox, but I have no idea what they use them for unless they are for xbox linux, which I am not going to do.

right, the only thing you`re able to use is a usb-mass-storage-device afaik with x-box linux for wang / ms-dashboard for savegames.

Thanks, that what I was curious about, saved me time modifying a controller port.
