8Gb M2 Memory Card (£8 incl P&P) @ CeX £8.00

6y, 7m agoFound 6 years, 7 months ago
Was looking for an M2 card for my son's Sony Ericsson as he's only for a 512Mb card that came with it.

Found this on CeX for £8 for an 8GB card.

They're £23 on play.com and a little bit cheaper on other sites, but £8 inc P&P is the best I've seen anywhere.

Hopefully it'll be good for someone, as these seem to be a bit more expensive than the Micro SD cards

I think you can buy SD adapters for these though, which makes it a good deal.

Are Sony still sticking to their crappy locked-in proprietary formats? I thought they'd given that up ages ago.

I've just come back from Tescos in Egham, Surrey and they were selling the Sandisk 2mb memory card for £3.49. Don't know if this is nationwide so may worth checking yr local. Wish i had taken a pic now to prove it!

Someone posted a 8gb M2 card from CEX a few months back for around £10 including delivery . I ordered one and it was a sandisk and worked great . I use mine for my PSP in a pro duo adapter as this is much cheaper than a pro duo stick :thumbsup:

This is cheaper than the Micro SD card I just bought. I'm wondering if this in an adapter would be better for my PSP than the Micro SD card.

My Sony Satio I got last year uses Micro SD, as compared to Sony's M2 format used in previous phones, perhaps the M2 is being phased out?

Agreed, my Aino and Elm both take Micro SD rather than M2....Bit of pain as I have always had SE phones and now have a small collection of near-useless-to-me M2 cards

Good deal, I bought one the other week instore. Just be wary that they usually come with no retail packing just the card itself. So it is best to use the following software to check that they are genuine:

In fact you should probably do that for all memory related items that you buy.

I bought a cheap m2 (like micro sd but sony) 4gb card from them instore a while back and it had bad sectors. I took it back and of course they wouldn't refund but would replace it. They replaced it with one with bad sectors too! So I just gave up and I'm still using it. Maybe it was just that Cex, maybe they have changed but that put me right off them.

I recently bought a 16GB Kingston branded microSDHC card (from a private uk seller!) that turned out to be a fake.
It was labelled up as a 16GB card & the controller chip inside reported it as such, but the actual capacity was 2GB.
It moduloed the write address so all writing occured on the first 2GB of address space, the problem therefore only becomes evident when you try to read back the bytes you have just written.

Luckily I spotted it while I was still able to get a refund.

Do not buy high capacity SDHC cards on ebay from HongKong or China sellers, they'll almost certainly be fake.

I'd happily swap you a micro for an M2? We'd have to list it on FS/FT but i'm in a similiar position having purchased micro cards for my PSP and upgrading to a psp go i'm now left with a fair few micro's and no M2's..!

On memorystick products, you can pop it in a sony device and check magicgate status as a method to vefify the genuinity.
I did this in my psp to verify a memory stick duo.
Apparently fake cards will tell you 'Magicgate not available' or unknown , this is one of the easiest way to tell if its fake or real.

This is an example of fake stick

I repped you for this. Incredibly useful.

Thanks for that - sounds a really quick and effective methos - rep added

I clicked on the link; but despite quite a bit of stock in various stores I couldn't add any to the basket.
Am I missing something ?

If anyone is after an adapter for m2/microsd/microsdhc cards to then plug into a usb device Currys are currently selling the mobilemate reader for £1.97 reduced instore.

I initially went into my local to try and find the Sandisk ultra II 4gb M2 packs (card+adapter) for £4.97 but they were out of stock everywhere locally. Found the adapter instead by itself, popped in a 4gb m2 card and used it for an ubuntu image on my o2 joggler :)

Mine arrived in the post today. Genuine Sony too. Even better., Though it wasn't very well packaged. Just the bare M2 card stuck in an envelope and into the post it went.

Back in stock - 7 as I type this.
