    So recently I got myself a 2g memory stick for 30$
    Which compared to how much it used to be, is a very good deal.

    So I just skimmed through Froogle and noticed that they finally started to make the 8g memory stick and its roughly 150-200$

    Too rich for my blood but I recall something with the firmware which is where my question comes in.

    I still have a PSP version 1.5 (non custom OS) I was wondering since the PSP only recognizes 4g and < that, would i have to upgrade my PSP in order to use the 8gig memory stick? Or would a custom firmware fix this problem?

    I appreciate any input, just curious so i can prepare when I decide to lay down some cash. Thanks

    8 gig duo works on 3.40oe, and so is 4 gig. People are having problem because they are buying fake ones from ebay. Some of thoese faulty memory sticks won't work on ANYTHING.

    wasn't there something that you had to buy a mod chip to use over 4gb ms or something b/c of the psp's bios, thats what i heard. so 8gb will work with what modded fw?

    actually after officail firmware 2.8 or something, 8 gig memory stick is already supported. I'm not sure which firmware exactly, but 3.40 and 3.40oe definitely supports 8 gig ms

    Mine doesn't work.. I have a 8GB and a PSP 3.40 OE-A. I got it from E-bay, but the descriptions said that it was good for the PSP. Is my memory stick fake? :S

    It also says: Brand New 8GB High Quality OEM Memory Stick (MS)

    Oh.. So lucky I am.. Then I have to send it back to get back my moneys.. Aah, and I waited so long for the memory stick..

    I read the sellers feedback, and it was another one who purchased the stick.. He said that it worked perfectly..

    get in touch with the seller and explain that its fake and you want a refund if he says no simply start a paypal dispute,if you need to tell them you will get the law involved
    was the seller named ratorol if yes then i'm afraid that is an obvious fake,to cheap
