Re: formatting PSP mem. card

This depends on exactly which problems you are having with formatting, and which operating system you are using to format it. If you are using windows XP, then after plugging the stick into a port/reader, a message should come up saying "new hardware detected" and then windows should check through the generic drivers and recognise the stick. Then go to "my computer", right click on the stick and choose "format". It will probably give you a couple of format options, most likely to appear are "FAT 32" or just "FAT" - select FAT 32 if it is there and it should work, if not try the other option. If you still can't format properly, then there may be a problem with your memory stick, they are prone to failure for many different reasons. If you do not have windows XP then the process should be similar but probably not identical. Hope this helps, please post again if not :)

MY memory stick can be seen and read in my pc but doesnt work on my psp

  • Flash Storage:
  • Memory Stick PRO Duo Expansion Slot pspphatmodelnumber.gif pspslimmodelnumber.gif pspbritemodelnumber.gif
  • Memory Stick Micro Expansion Slot pspgomodelnumber.gif
All flash storage, including Memory Sticks and internal flash, uses the FAT32 file system.

The above shows how to format the Memory Stick PRO Duo in the PSP so the correct file structure will be shown.

Be sure to back up any data on the Memory Stick PRO Duo before doing this as all data will be lost on the Memory Stick PRO Duo device.

I formatted a 16GB sony produo mem stick on my laptop using Win XP II. Now my computer or camera or PSP can't detect the card

Put the card back in the computer and format it using FAT (not NTFS) format. In the format menu, you'll see the file system pull down option, choose FAT and format again.

Not able to copy movies on Sony 8GB Memory Stick Pro Duo for PSP

Before you go throwing any old video file onto your PSP, make sure you have the following items:
  • The PSP. This is self-explanatory.
  • The .MP4 video files.
  • Video conversion software to convert non-MP4 files to MP4, the format the PSP reads.

Misfunctioning 4GB memory stick pro duo

Are you formatting it with your computer or PSP?

  1. Push the little HOME button on the bottom left of the face of the unit.
  2. Use the arrow keys to move to the SETTINGS area, then move the up and down keys until you get to System Settings.
  3. Once you are there, click on the "X" button and scroll up and down as needed to find Format Memory Stick. Click on "X" again to select that option.
  4. The Sony PSP will now confirm that you want to reformat the memory stick (which removes every file and game save thereon, of course): choose yes and it'll format in just a few seconds.
It that doesn't work - try formatting it with your computer.

PSP not detecting files on a 4gb memory stick PRO Duo

There are certain folders that the PSP puts on the stick when it formats it. Format the new stick on the PSP first. Then, you can transfer you files to it.

Place PBP files in the GAME folder and ISO/CSO games in the ISO folder of the Memory Stick root. You might have to make this folder yourself.
