    Ok, so I got me the 4GB Sony MemoryStick PRO DUO MagicGate and for some reason, videos will only play for about 10 seconds when they stop and a message saying "this video cannot be played" appears and I cannot longer whatch the video. What's weird is that I have the smaller 32MB memory stick and it works fine. I've tried converting the videos using CloneDVD Mobile, PSPv9 and PSP Max Media Manager...all with the same result..10 seconds of video playback..message appears...I'm screwed. Any idea why these videos won't work with the 4GB card, but will with the 32MB one? I have the latest firmware for the console too. Any help will be appreciated.
    Thanks.

    im aware that you buy a fake ms.
    where did you bought it?
    simply check in the menus of ur psp with the 4 gb ms in >go under photo>memory stick>information>what is say after MAGICGATE if its unknown then its a fake a genuine it will say support

    fake ms usually died after 3 or 4 week. and they are found mostly on ebay.

    Card finally took a crap today, I was loading some MP3s, suddenly I was told the destination folder was corrupted, then the PSP told me there was no MS inserted and couldn't recognize it at all. So, this will be the last time I buy anything like that on eBay.

    I got mine off of ebay and it's been running a good year now. (It also is fake.)

    I have to reformat the memory stick every once and a while because of the same problem, but afterwords it works just as good as the day I bought it and I back up the data weekly so it's no big deal.

    i bought a 4gb card for $40 on ebay and it sucked. it was garbage. pure crap.

    so catch the circuit city deals for $45 for a 4gb legit one!
