    Can you provide links to what you have purchased?


    Those adaptors are a bit hit and miss with 8GB cards.

    The ones they sold a few months ago work fine, but the ones they send out now are a bit rubbish.
    I had to send 3 back the other week. I got them to send these ones:


    The cost difference is minimal($0.50), and they work perfectly.

    Thanks for that i`ll order 1 of them then so it will definitely work?

    I have had about 10, and 8 more on the way, and not had one that didn't work.

    You can return the one you have. I told them that it worked intermittently, and sent it back.
    It will work fine with a 4GB Micro SD card, but not really worth having as a 4GB Pro Duo is only a tenner anyway.

    I'm not sure if you are accustomed to their returns policy, but they will send you a new one as soon as you have sent them a J-Peg of the receipt from the Post Office of when you returned it to them.

    There returns process is a bit cumbersome, but have always come through for me.

    I received my adapter today from DX, the same one the OP linked to (even bought the same SDHC card he links to).

    The adapter I received is *apparently* Kingston branded and the card was recognized after a format in the PSP. Will report back after moving some content onto it.

    Works well residing in both my camera and PSP. PSP a bit slow to open video folder, but fine on playback. Games fine (including a PS1 game stored on the SDHC card)
