Psp Memory card

My other half ( wookiemummy) kindly bought me a psp for Christmas and I need to get a memory card for it, i've had a look around and have seen Currys have a Sony pro duo (?) for £50 which I'm not prepared to pay.
I'd like some advice on what is worth buying and how to put games on to it.

Thanks in advance.

Cheapest way to get a non fake card is get a micro sd card with an pro duo adaptor or a M2 card and pro duo adaptor, I got a 4 gig M2 card and adaptor for about £10 on Ebay probably about £15 for a 8 gig one.

I was hoping to pay around £20, do you have to have the adapter?

Excellent, thank you very much.

Buy an 8GB Micro SD from Play for about £10 and then buy a Micro SD to Pro Duo adapter from Ebay for about £1.50, cheapest way to do it at present.

As leilahfun has suggsted play are doing a good deal on Sony Pro Duo memory cards with the added plus of these being the Mark 2 version.

Check out the thread to see people's comments about the deal and hopefully feedback on these cards.

Is it easy enough for me to put games on to it? nothing dodgy, i don't want to take lots of discs to work with me.

Erm, the method of which to enable doing this can get complicated depending on the model of your PSP and the firmware installed on it.

If your PSP is the newest models (PSP 2000 with the latest motherboard/PSP 3000) and has any firmware above 5.03 installed I think playing games via the memory card (which I think you are suggesting) is not possible - although I may be wrong :oops:

I see, hmm...

I suggest you read into this yourself first (not to sure myself, own a PSP 1000) but depending on the motherboard inside your PSP you may be able to downgrade Sony's Official Firmware using a "Pandora Battery), install custom firmware and enable you to play games via the memory stick.

If however (again not sure) your PSP has the newest model motherboard installed I think you are unable to downgrade the firmware and therefore unable to install custom firmware to play games via the memory stick.

To find out what motherboard your PSP has there are some indications by looking at the PSP box serial:
http://forums.qj.net/psp-firmware-discussion/28717-determining-psp-firmware-using-box-codes-dec-23-2007-a.html
The link above is pretty outdated but hopefully it can help to an extent - if your PSP didn't originally have 6.00 firmware installed out of the box it may suggest it having an older motherboard.

Best thing to do is check the date code under the battery in your PSP, if it's earlier than 8C then you should be able to install a full version of custom firmware, although as you've updated to 6.00 official firmware you will require a pandora battery.
