    I bought a new high speed 4gb memory stick pro duo the other day and I put it in my PSP. It cant play anything! If I put in a UMD the memory stick doesn't let me play it. It can't play PS1 games off it as well. Maybe it's a virus on the memory stick that is now on my PSP. I know I got everything right because I have a different PSP memory stick that will let me play PS1 games and UMD's. Please help me!!!

    Try reformatting it. Did you do a fresh reformat when you got it?

    if u got it from an auction more then likely it's fake, and this is a known problem with fake memory sticks.

    Was it in official packing? Did the packaging have a sony hologram on the top?

    Sounds fake to me, unlucky man

    Those holograms dont mean anything. The packaging and hologram are also counterfeit so you get fake everything.
