Sorry, I'm going to have to

Sorry, I'm going to have to ask you a few questions to start figuring it out.

When you say "memory chip" do you mean a USB thumb drive or something like an SD memory card?
If it's an SD card, is the little switch on the side in the protect position?
If it's a thumb drive: Does the PC recognize it?
Do you get an error message?
What's the make and model of the usb drive?
Does it still work in the PS3?
Have you tried it on more than one computer?
Did the drive get partitioned (with the drive attached, right click on my computer, then click on manage. Click on disk management and look for the USB drive. See if it's got more than one partition)?
