Which memory stick/card is best for PSP?

Q: Which memory stick/card is best for PSP?


I just got a PSP 3000 for the holidays and I can't figure out what memory to buy with it. I heard of ScanDisk and Sony being the best and that the sizes are 1gb, 2gb, 4gb, 8gb, 16gb, and 32gb. I feel that 32 gb might be too much so looking at 8gb or 16gb. What brand is better for these 2 sizes of memory to go into a PSP 3000? Also is stick better or micro? I've seen many good priced micro cards so leaning towards it and just getting the adapter for it fit my PSP.

If it helps, would like to have space for movies, downloadable games, music, etc.

Preferred Solution: Which memory stick/card is best for PSP?

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

A: Which memory stick/card is best for PSP?

I have owned many brands of memory sticks for my PSP, all of them performed the same. As for size if you are wanting to deal with movies and such I would go for the biggest that will fit.

I am running Windows XP in a Compaq Presario, with CD reader and CD/DVD burner.
My question: How do I get a DVD(with photos and sound) onto a Flash Memory stick or an SD card??

A:Transfer DVD to Memory Stick or Memory card

Simplest method:

Insert the Disc with photos and sound (close any autorun)
Go to My Computer
Right Click on the CD/DVD drive (with your photos and sound in) and select open
Click on Edit (in Toolbar) then Select all
Click on Edit (in Toolbar again) and select copy

Close the folder

Insert your Flash Memory stick and select Open folder to view the files
Click on Edit (in Toolbar again) and select paste

All done Copy and paste (some say I'm good at this !)

Completely new to this so apologies if barking up the wrong tree .... !

Rather than buying a 32 gb memory stick to upload some important jpg pictures into for safety's sake, I'm wondering if it's possible to upload and store them in a spare and unused 32gb memory card that I've got lying around instead ? Equally if it's then possible to download them safely later on ?


A:Possible to save to a memory card rather than a memory stick ?

Short answer is Yes. An SD card is very similar to a flash drive as far as the technology goes and can be used like an SD card for storing files. I would format it Fat32. And you can download (Copy) the files from the card at any time.

I have tried trawling for information and search engines are too busy interpreting what I really want - really?

Basically they don't give clear answers and web designers can't spend too much time on real data because it goes out of fashion (sic) too quickly.

I run FF Portable from a 2Gb Kingston U3 (waste of time) and the remote systems I use it on do so much checking and FF does so much archiving I need something faster.

It could be a micro SD and small USB carrier or even an SDHC if it would read properly on a variety of systems. Mostly XP.

Any Ideas peeps?

I am UK based. Run XP & 2000 on PC's and Win98 SP2 most of the time (because I run websites and need to know what the lowest common denominator sees)

I have tried to upload photo's from my memory stick onto my Mac laptop and it had a error stating that it 'does not recognise my card and to eject' so then I also tried to upload on my Windows PC and that gave me a message 'that I need to format disk'. Now I know that if I do this that it will delete all contents. I don't know what's happened as I just uploaded and cleared content from it a couple of days prior. Is there anything I can do? I've since placed it back into my digital camera and now my camera say's it's an un-useable card, really confused now help would be appreciated. Cheers.

I have this problem for a few days now, i tried searching on other topics but didn't find exactly my issue.

When i connect the first USB Stick (1 GB Kingston) everything it's ok, it shows up in Explorer, but when i try to connect the other one (i have two) it wont show up, but i can access it if i just type the drive letter in the address bar (J:\).
Also if i try to connect my phone as a USB device or any other memory stick, same problem...not showing up in Computer window.

Hi, I bought this about a year ago and it worked at first but as time passed sometimes it would work and sometimes it wouldn't when I put in my memory stick to upload pictures, etc. Now I've been trying for a couple of days and whenever I insert it into the usb port the light flashes green (somestimes remains green) and the computer shows that that removable drive is there when I go to 'my computer'. But when I click on it it says "Please insert the removable drive E)" or it freezes my computer. I even tried it on a laptop and it doesn't want to open up.

Whenever I try to put my SD card in the reader or a memory stick in the USB ports, I get the error message "E:\ Application Not Found". What does this mean? It's really weird, they were fine last week, and now all of a sudden none of them work? I'm not very technologically savvy, so please forgive me. I just checked the drivers and they are all updated, so what could it be? I can open the either one if I go to My Computer and right click, but I get that error message whenever I simply put them in. Any help would be appreciated!

A:"E:\ Application Not Found" SD card and memory stick


We can try two methods to check if the issue gets fixed:

Method 1 (If autorun.inf file is present):

1. Go to control panel then folder options.
2. Press tab view and check view hidden files and folders.
3. Then go to the device not opening and explore it.
4. Look if you see autorun.inf and if present delete it.
5. Then disconnect USB device from system and reconnect it.

Method 2 (If autorun.inf file isn't present):

Go to command prompt, click Start and type the following command:
attrib -s -r -h X:\autorun.inf

Press enter and then type the following command:
del X:\autorun.inf

Press enter and after this disconnect USB device from system and reconnect it.
To go to command prompt following the steps mentioned below:
1. Click Start.
2. Type in Search box CMD.
3. Right Click on CMD and RUN AS ADMIN.
4. Then type in attrib -s -r -h X:\autorun.inf.
Note: Please notice that X means the drive letter (E:\, F:\, etc).

If the above steps do not work, in CMD type sfc /scannow. Please use the following link for detailed instructions: System Files - SFC Command

Note: Ensure that the data is backed up from the memory stick before you follow above mentioned steps.

Please post back with the results.

Lately, My laptop is very slow in recognizing my usb stick, or my Hard drive (usb 3.0) or my sxs cards through my express card slot. It 's also slow in recognizing my sd-cards through my card reader. I have a very fast laptop. A lenovo W530.

I just started a while ago, and I can't get it to recognize faster . Everything else works just fine and fast.... but it takes up to 4 minutes to recognize these things.

Can somebody help?

Hey tidri. 2 things come to mind if it previously worked. One is a reinstall of all the drivers for the mobo, and the other is a full AV/Malware/Rootkit scan. If everything checks out, a full format and an OS reinstall would be my third move.

No ideas. I've often transferred WinZip via USB drive-never had any problem. Are you sure you're saving the downloaded file to the USB drive-if you try copying your installed version of WinZip you probably won't get it all. Other than that the only idea I have is that you have a problem with your download-have you tried re-downloading it? Maybe from a different PC?

There is really no way to run MemTest wrong and yes, there should be no errors whatsoever.

What is the difference between a USB flash drive and a USB pen drive? There is a difference in price but that is all i can work out at the moment. Please can you help.

A:Memory stick

Hi helenb102,

Welcome to TSG!

According to when I searched for usb flash drive, a USB flash drive and USB pen drive are one and the same:
Known By Many Names

Also known as a "flash drive," "pen drive," "keychain drive," "key drive," "USB key," "USB stick" and "memory key," ...

I already knew that, but wondered if indeed there actually was some difference - so, none!

They are sold with or without bootable software (Windows) depending on mfg. I have bought 512kb, 2GB and 4GB USB flash drives. SanDisk cruzer (512KB, 2GB, 4GB) comes with Windows compatible FAT16 (I think) bootable software. On a PNY Technologies (2GB) USB flash drive which does not come with any bootable software, I partitioned and laid in a compatible file system for Linux Ubuntu 7.10 Gutsy Gibbon which has the property (now) of persistent storage, so that any changes I install to it are not lost after I boot it up and install the changes - i.e. between reboots from it onto my desktop from it.

Long story short: My new computer that had Vista on it originally crashed two weeks ago. I downgraded to XP. Now the internet doesn't work. My Network Drivers are missing.

So I hooked up my old computer (Windows ME) I upgraded it to XP. I got onto the HP website and the tech sent me 3 drivers: chipset, sound, and modem.

The CD burner on the old computer won't work. So I couldn't burn the drivers onto a cd and transfer.

I bought a USB Memory Stick. The computer recognized it, installed it. But it's not under 'My Computer'.

I went into Admin Tools and tried adding a new drive. It wouldn't work/I may not have done it right.

Will this tactic work?
If I transfer all my harddrive to a memory stick (the size is 4 Gigabytes) can I then plug it into a PC with Norton installed and scan it that way?
I ask because I cannot scan my pc at the moment because a virus(or a trojan or I know not what) is effectively blocking my internet access .
Again would Norton Antivirus be up to the task as someone (my ISP) said they thought it might be a trojan to be redirecting my outgoing traffic in the way that it is.

Now, all of sudden, it is telling me when I put the stick in, and try to open to insert the memory stick, the memory stick is blinking, like it is being read. I checked the profile, the auto play said music, I tried to change to photo would not change,the auto play thing keeps appearing like it is playing something. I am so frustrated.

Memory modules, if the correct size, and type, should work out of the box.
Be sure you have the right stuff by going to and entering your computer brand and model, or the motherboard brand and model... for a list of what should work.
Then if you install it correctly so that it is firmly seated, the motherboard BIOS and Windows should detect it and accept it automatically.

I have a 4gb memory stick that I have used many times to install Linux etc on old laptops etc. Now that I want to use that stick to copy off some files from Win 7, I notice that Win 7 suggests its capacity is only 1gb.

I think I have seen this kind of thing happen before but cant remember how I resolved it.

Anyone got ideas on how to kick-start W7 into recognising its full capacity ?

You may be trying to put too many files into the root directory of the memory stick, try creating a folder on the memory stick and then copying the files to that folder instead.

I'm running WinXP and have recently had problems getting my 2GB memory stick to appear in My Computer. The stick is fine--works well with another computer and used to work fine with this one. The problem seems to have surfaced since I bought a WD My Book external hard drive, which now takes up the "E" Drive designation the memory stick used to open on. When I plug in the memory stick, the chimes sound as if recognised and the LCD on the stick flashes a couple times, but there's no drive listed for it on my computer.

That would possibly be down to the file type that the different programs can handle, look at the file and see what is on the end of the file name for files that play in each program, if the same then they should play in either program.

I bought my FIRST Memory Stick, 16GB, to use wehn I uprgrade from W'7 Trial Version to Retail Version.........the seller said it was compatible with Vista and W'7'; I put the stick into my USB port and it showed it had FAT 32 on it and, NOT knowing for sure, I figured that it probably should have NTFS system on it before I transfer things on to it. I told my W'7 to format it to NTFS and it came back that it could not be done.

Please tell me IF I can use this stick with FAT32 to store data off of my present W'7 OS - to be re-installed onto a NEW install of W'7 in the near future.....OR.....does this stick have to have NTFS on it????

THANKS michael

Leave it as default FAT32 is a fine file system. I would not change it unless you need to. There are not many reasons to change.

Plus FAT32 is good for updating your BIOS, and other stuff.

I got the “needs formatting” message on my memory stick.
I retrieved the files using Testdisk but it does not show useful filenames so I retrieved them using Zero Assumption Recovery.
I then did a quick format and checked it with Explorer and it showed no files, as expected.
I later hibernated the system.
When I resumed (not reboot) the drive had disappeared and nothing, including Testdisk, can find it.
I would like to use this stick if possible so is there any way to get it back? I don’t understand how it disappeared after hibernation when nothing should have changed.

Hi, i've got a memory stick which i frequently use. I noticed soon after I started using it an autorun file had appeared, which I thought nothing of. Last week my teacher used my memory stick to get some of my coursework off it, and gave it back to me but said I had a trojan on there. When i got home I used anti virus software, but found nothing. I just wondered what this autorun file was and if it's this which could be setting off my teachers firewall or antivirus to detect a trojan. I tried deleting the autorun file, everything was fine, and worked properly, but it came back. Any ideas?? Thanks

There is a website out there that you can upload files to to scan for virri.
I forget what it is called, but it uses like 10-15 different scanners to scan your files.
It's great for false-positives.

I have a problem with my memory stick. I was downloading some files off the web onto the stick, but it seems that one of the files was corrupted. Now when I try to save anything to the stick, or delete anything, it tells me it is write protected. I've checked that it isn't, and flicked the write protection switch on and off several times.

Tried to reformat the stick, no luck, told me it was write protected.

Figuring its the corrupt file doing this so have tried to remove it with file removal software - Killer - (which has worked with stubborn undeletable files for me before) and have had no luck.

Really want to get the stick working again. Any suggestions?

I have an IBM Thinkpad 380D that came with built-in 16mb RAM, and an additional 16mb stick had been added. It runs Win98SE.

I recently purchased a 64mb stick (SODIMM EDO, although it doesn't specifically say "EDO" on it). I removed the 16 and installed the 64, but on bootup, the boot screen only shows "16000KB OK", and the machine is drastically slower than before. (Previously, the boot screen showed "31824KB OK".) Clearly, the 64mb stick isn't being recognized.

Is there something else I should have done in installing the new stick? Or is there something I need to do after installing to get it recognized? How can I determine whether the new stick actually is EDO?

And if that was not worse, the whole file got infected with some freaky virus, so much so that it infected 4 other files on my memory stick. Has this problem ever happened to someone else, and if so how the heck can I get my document back.
Thanks a lot for the help.

A:Infected Memory Stick

First thing to do is scan the flash disk then let the antivirus healed or fixed the file. If not healed or fixed, it means that the antivirus that you are using don't have yet the antidote of the virus to fix and heal the infected file. I may suggest to try any other antivirus that you know to scan the disk.
Sad to say that there are also files that are unrecoverable when it is hit by a very dangerous virus.

I of course do not mean to sound rude by any stretch of the imagination but given the number of views without a response to a possibly easy problem to fix, I think members are confused about your question. By memory stick do you mean thumbdrive or RAM? If it's a thumbdrive and your computer recognizes it, what's causing you to not access it (an error message, etc). What do you mean the virus scan and file system was gone? Is there any way you can give a more concise version of what's happening?

It is possible the rewritability of the memory has degraded. This can happen with time and use. Sixth paragraph down.

If you can't write anything to it, either, then you might have a dead flash drive (which would be the first case I've come across, but they say it can happen).

Of course, that doesn't explain why it can't be read.

Drive letter assignment is random, but it sounds like yours was originally assigned as G:\

When you back up nightly, do not backup to a thumb drive. Back up to an external hard drive, or at least that is my advice. I would use something like Acronis to have it auto back up your stuff you can rest worry free. On the mac, if you ever decide to upgrade to Leopard, Time Machine works amazingly well. I have had to use it and it is amazing.
You can try something like that to get your data back. I would buy the usb Cruzer Titanium beacuse you said that you are using it a lot and carrying it around, the Cruzer is as tough as nails!

To set auto play click on start orb then control pannel, then click on auto play, then put a check in the ( use auto play for all media devices ) then set all the devices to ( ask me every time ) and click save at the bottom of the window. Then when you plug anything in or put any media in the disc drive the auto play window will open with a set of options for you to choose from like view files etc,,,
good luck.

Hello, maybe somebidy can help.
I just installed Norton 360 on my pc. When I inserted my memory stick the pc turns off. I repeated it with a differnt memory stick, the same result. Any idea what I have to do to resolve this problem?
Thank you

Due to some issues, I had to reformat my hard drive and reinstall Windows 2000. I had a USB hub plugged into my pc with a memory stick in one of the slots. I had some files copied/backed up on the memory stick. Now when I try to retrieve the files using Windows Explorer, Explorer is acting like my files are gone and it says the stick needs to be formatted. I also tried retrieving the files by plugging the stick into my laptop and I got the same results. I'm afraid that somehow the files got wiped out while I was formatting and reinstalling Windows, but I don't know how it would have happened. Has anyone else ever experienced this or can someone offer me some suggestions.

My Camera (Sony Cyber-shot) keeps saying Format Error every time I turn it on. When I connect it to my MacBook it won't detect it, so I cant get my pictures off. It all started when I was talking pictures and some of them would just say file error when I went to view them and then they wouldn't be there, but now it is worse. Is there any way to save my other pictures?

Hey guys, I upgraded my wife's PC a short while ago with a mobo/cpu/ram bundle. The ram I got was supposed to be PC2700. When I ran aide32pe last night to look at the ram type/speed it showed up in that program as PC3200. I pulled the cover off of thing just a few minutes ago and pulled out the stick of ram to look at it and here is what I could identify on it:

32X64 DDR266 OSLO002-3918528 CH810300 32X64dBOc8nMOS266 389002841101003bnm

Most of that doesn't make sense to me, but I would swear that the stickers on this stick of ram say it's PC2100 ram (DDR266). How can I know if the stickers are wrong or aide32pe is wrong? Is there any way to know? Maybe use another program like SiSandra to see what it says? Thanks for your help.
