My son has a problem with his psp, it will not recognise his memory stick, I have tried my card in with same result, tried 2 other cards in his and same message no memory stick inserted,they all work in my psp.

did you format new memory stick psp will not recognize till that is done. if your technically inclined and the psp is out of warrenty open up the unit and make sure contacts on memory stick recepticle are touching.
You probably need a new memory stick module inside the PSP. I have seen this many times in my store and we replaced the board and it worked fine. Contact your local game stores to see if they do console repairs. See if there is a Play-N-Trade within your area. I work at one and we do repairs. I'm not sure if Gamestop or Gamecrazy do repairs.
Two possibilities. 1. The firmware on your PSP is too old to recognise the 8GB (only recognises up to 4GB). 2. If firmware is up to date you have a fake memory stick (easy way to check is to check the info for the memory stick on your PSP if its says that MAGIC GATE is unknown rather than supported then it is fake.
The fake ones typically double compress the data so that it appears to have 8GB when in reality it does not.
The problem can be the memory stick or within the PSP system itself. Try inserting another memory stick into the non functioning psp. If the problem still persist that means the memory card reader cannot read the files try formatting the whole psp system. If that doesn't work you will need to get it repaired take to an electronics store that sells video game systems preferably game stop they will swap out the memory card reader
