    Perhaps it's a fake stick? You'll lose size after formatting, but it shouldn't be over 25% of the pre-formatted size.

    sounds like a fake.

    on ur psp w/ the card in it, goto photo/music then go down to the Memory Stick Option, press Triangle, then press Show information.

    what's it say after MAGIC-GATE?

    Thanks for your answers.. I picked up off another forum that it is a fake.. Ebay power seller too that has 100% feedback and who has sold memory sticks before.. Interesting..

    One tip is that if you look the package, original ones have many long heat seals on the sides and on the top and fake ones have only about three round glue seals on each side. Another tip is, when you search for memory sticks on ebay add the word "genuine", "authentic" or "original".

    i was looking through ebay for memory stick too and i find the 4 gb very cheap. too cheap to be true. thank the lord i didn't buy one. it's very tempting though because the price is too damn low for a 4 gb memory stick.

    I'm pretty sure a big chain like Best Buy wouldn't be selling fake memory sticks.

    i honestly hope so, but why doesn't say that is official
    when we see the word compatible next to a memory stick in ebay we know that is fake

    i hope i'm wrong
