    Hey all, does anyone else have the problem of their ISO's lagging when playing off of a 4GB Memory Stick? The last stick used was a 2GB High Speed Memory stick and no problems whatsoever. But games lag on this new 4gb one. The MS light always flashes as if its accessing it in mid-play.

    Anyone else have this problem?

    Would the HOng Kong Memory Sticks differ in that manner? cuz I think the guy who bought this, did say it was from HK.

    I thought the High Speed thing was the difference...

    what do you all think?

    I can't confirm this, but I have heard that memory sticks from eb*y and other sites that offer cheap memory sticks. These usually come from Hong Kong. They tend not to perform as well as the ones purchased from stores. As they say "you pay for what you get"!!!.

    I'm pretty sure mine is a fake 4GB card from ebay. Statistics floating around have put MemoryStick and USB Flash fakes at 95-98% if you buy from a HK seller. Apparently you can tell by going to photos > triangle > information > Magicgate. If it says 'unknown' then its pretty much fake. (Not a guaranteed method apparently, but pretty accurate).

    The fake cards have a transfer speed of roughly 25Mbps write and 50mbps read, whereas the real cards would have 40/80Mbps. Although from what I hear that transfer speed should be enough as the UMD drive is not particularly speedy, it's actually the card struggling to read data causing the lag (as a result of low quality clones).

    it not the matter whether u are using a fake / orginal MS 4gb.

    The only problem with this 3rd party MS is that the connector area is weak. it can easily be ban if u never take care of it. Orignal MS connector area are better the casing are harder.

    both work the same. i have both.

    what u need to do is to format ur ms 4gb to fats 16.

    Goto dos mode n then issue this command

    format X: /fs:fat

    Where X = drive

    I get lag in WRC from the 4GB card from ebay. This doesn't exist on the genuine 2GB card I have, thus it has to stem from the card not being genuine.

    not every memory stick is a fake, in fact....there is no such thing as a fake one "altered" but not "fake"...

    it may be your cpu settings check if youre running 266 or 333 in recovery....i know some larger isos require 333...

    Considering sony doesnt have anything to do with the manufacturing of the cards (memory, PCB and casing are all 3rd party and not authorised), i think that qualifies as fake!

    I'll have to try the 333mhz setting then.. thats a good idea
