    I recently bought a 4gb memory stick on ebay this seemed faulty so i got a replacment, both were the same even though i can fit up to 10 games on these the psp will only recognise 4-5 i have tried 2 psp consoles and they are the same, is this something i am doing wrong or faulty memory sticks

    All the games works when loaded using 2gb memory stick

    You must upgrade your psp firmware.

    Which firmware version?

    I've got a psp with a 4gb Sony stick that formats fine on 3.40 OE but for some reason has loads of corrupt data entries in the save data utility and game area from the XMB.

    It also comes up as locked when a Mac tries to connect to it but works fine on a Pc.

    Sorted it. Looks like its a fake memory stick. Copied the empty folders off the stick then formatted it on a Pc and copied them back. Now there's no corrupt data icons anymore!

    Actually, 3.40-OE support MSD Pro 4 GB even fake item.
    Currently, I have some MSD Pro 4 Gb High speed and no problem with my PSP.
    All of my MSD are fake and work perfectly in my PSP.

    I suggest you try to format it from your PSP.

    I have formatted the MSD pro 4 Gb few times in fat32 format and also tried format using PC. But still experience the same issue.

    Thats your problem right there....eBay is notorious for having fake or sub-par memory for sale...Especially the ones from Hong Kong sellers!! Always buy your memory from a reputable merchant-one you can return it to should problems arise. And I have said it before, dont be cheap and spend the extra money on good memory, because you know you are not spending it on the free games you are getting....

    You can double check its authenticity by selecting one of the memory stick icons under either PHOTO,VIDEO, or GAME in the psp menu-and hit triangle to bring up the information sidebar-X select that, and it will show your memory stick status: amount of total space, free space, and MagicGate...If it says "unknown", "unsupported", or is just blank after the MagicGate text, then you have a fake memory stick-and thats the reason why you cant get more than 1.5 or 2GB's worth of data on there at any given time...

    Well your transfer rate is going to be slow if you have a fake memory stick-you are just going to have to deal with it...Otherwise, go out and buy a real one...

    Thats funny they have managed to put little messages when you have an error-those counterfeiters are getting pretty slick....

    No, not unless you have a bogus downgrading program that would cause your psp to brick...PSP's cant run executable (.EXE) files-so chances of having a virus on your psp is nil...

    i tried to decompress cso to iso, after that i forgot that the winrar file was already the iso. So i tried to unzip the files inside it(psp Game and UMD.bin) then i cancelled it so......it began!

    didnt eat breakfast for 2 weeks just to buy a 4gb :(

    A 4gb Sandisk memory stick from Newegg.com probably won't be fake right? I'm thinking about getting it since it's only like $56.
