HELP NEEDED! (psp question.....)

Found 14th Sep 2008
My son saved all his birthday money and spends and bought himself a PSP - only problem was I didn't realise he'd need a memory card.... D'OH!

Been looking at Sony Pro Duo's but I haven't got a clue really what I'm looking at - does the PSP need the adaptor that comes with some Pro Duo's (on a certain internet auction site...)

Any and all help will be greatly appreciated!

Thanks

;-)

no it doesn't need the adapator.
the adaptors are used to allow other cards such as MicroSD and M2 to work with the memory stick pro duo slot
and other adaptors allow the pro duo to work with the older sony memory stick slots on older devices.

you need bog standard memory stick pro duo cards. sony and sandisk being the best IMHO

Don't buy from ebay, it's just too hard to be sure you are not buying a fake. Get it from Amazon.co.uk (not marketplace), Play.com, etc..

Thanks for the advice!!

I've got an official MS Pro Duo 32MB - big enough size if it is only for game saves - that I will post for £2 recorded. PM me if you want it and I will set up a FS thread for you :thumbsup:

The adaptor that comes with some of the memory stick pro duos allows the memory stick pro duo to work with older memory stick compatible devices (basically just makes the newer memory stick fatter and longer). I would recommend getting your memory stick from play.com as they are cheap and delivery is fast.

32MB seems a bit small..... I've been looking at 4 and 8 GB! It is only for gaming on the psp - am I being a bit ambitious?

if you are looking for something to also put music and other media on, then obviously it IS too small! But if it is only for original game saves then it will be adequate. Personally I use an 8GB stick, but that's only because the PSP has custom firmware so I have full backup games on it. :whistling:

Yeah, Unless you wanna put custom Firmware on it to run downloaded games or use it for MP3's etc anything up to a 1 gig will do you.

Just shop around for the cheapest place. play.com will prob be the best bet!

orange accesories were doing 1Gb sticks for £3.99 but i don't know if the offer is still on

what's the cheapest way to buy memory again guys?

Is it via an 8gb micro sd and MSDuo adapter combo? They're relatively cheap up against a proper 8gb MSDuo

the cheapest way would probably be to buy from dealextreme but they'll almost certainly be fakes if that matters to you.

i ve just bought one from memorybits

if you can cope with long transfer sppeds, buy from DX
