    Has anyone got one of these if so does it work.

    It basicaly plugs into the memory slot and then lets you use SD Cards instead of Pro Duo. I need to check before buying as I have recently bought a fake a Pro Duo of ebay and I don't want to get stuck with something else that doesn't work

    I don't know if i am allowed to post a link the web site which is selling this ?

    I just checked them, they look pretty neat, will they be better than normal memory sticks pro duo? I guess they will, but dont know how they will work.

    There ordering website sucks! I have been trying to order it for the past 20 minutes and its stuck on the "delivery method option" in the check out process and won't let me go any further. How frustrating!

    Couldn't order it through one e-store so I successfully ordered it through another. I can't wait till it arrives. SD cards are so inexpensive.

    Dont know, the normal SD memory speed... the one thing I have found out is that it works fine with 2 SD Cards, YES, 2 at the same time, they both have to be the same size, for example 2 of 512 or 2 of 1gb or 2 of 2gb for them to work as one, that is a future that sounds really, but really nice...

    What I heard also is that they are a bit slower than normal memory stick but games work fine.

    I saw an 8 gig sd card at supermediastore.com for around $69 each. If I save and save and save. I might be able to buy two of them. Imagine the possibilities of having 16 gigs available for the psp :)

    My double memeory converter came in over the weekend. I haven't tried it out yet. I have to wait til this pay day to buy two SD cards. I did read in the paper that came in that package that it doesn't support SD cards of 4 gigs or higher. That sucks! So realistically you can only use two 2 gig SD cards. I'll keep you posted on this.

    I'm the opposite Ive got the memory but no adaptor savastore were doing homebrand 2gb cards for £8.40 but they have no stock left I amanged to get 4 so I will see how it works with the cheapest card possible :)

    They work in my camera so all will not be lost.

    Okay got the Memory Expander this morning and as I said earlier in the thread I have bought 2 x 2Gb cards at £8.40 so this converter plus 4GB has cost me about £23

    I am glad to say it works perfect.

    The adaptor has clips that go in the battery screw holes so it is not dangling down. Speed seems fine I am running 6 ISO totaling 3.6GB no problem. I will definately be ordering more memory.

    If you live in the US and want to buy it from a place that is closer, you can also get it at https://www.gamersection.ca/. So I finally got my 2x2gig sd cards. This thing is awesome. I was able to put in 9 csos, 1 psx, and about 8 GBA games on them and still have about 800 megs available. The only thing is that this adapter makes one side of the PSP a bit bulky and it no longer fits into any of the skins or protective cases that I owned. So I had to do a little bit of modding. I cut part of the protective case on the side and now the ribbon comes out of the case so the PSP can rest inside. The part that holds the sd cards is now taped to the back of the case similar to how it was on the PSP. It is a bit unsightly but it works and I would much rather pay $50 dollars for two SD cards then $100 for a 4 gig ms.

    Dude found a problem with this converter, if you leave it stick in and do a lt of pressure to it, the little sticks that make it hold to your psp will break and it will became loose, that shucks big time! I just broke one of them!
