Re: Memory Cards/Sticks

Make sure its inserted the right way and if its a memory stick make sure the orange light beside that is on when you put it in

When i save games on my psp memory card, it says "datat corrupted", so i got a new memory card and SAME PROBLEM! i tried reformatting both cards, but no luck! please help!

To be able to play games from the memory stick, your PSP must be hacked first. It's a complicated process.
There's nothing wrong with your memory sticks.

Memory card inserted but none detected. The memory card is the only one I've used since I've had the PSP. The read indicator just flashes. The card checks out on my PC and PS3.

If the card works ok on other systems but not your PSP it sounds liek an issue with the PSP. You can try another card just to be sure. You could also try updating your system software on the PSP to see if that helps at all.

Hi there

  1. 1 Insert your memory card into your computer's reader if you have one. If not, you can purchase a multi-format USB Memory Card reader from or
  2. 2 Open up 'My Computer'. You should see it under the list of available drives.
  3. 3 Check its contents first to make sure that you have the right drive.
  4. 4 In 'My Computer', right-click on the drive and choose 'Format'.
  5. 5 Leave all the options as they are and click on 'Start'. This is a non-reversible process so make sure this is what you truly wanted to do in the first place.
  6. 6 Once the process is completed, take the memory card out and insert it into your Digital Camera or any other device. Try to browse to it to make sure it works fine now.

Cannot read the games on the memory card

IT could be that the card is corrupt or has been damaged by not properly using it. E.g. Powering it down while the PSP is accessing the memory stick.

You can try to reformat the card again. You can use your PC. Insert the memory card into a card reader and then once the PC detects the device, Right click and then click Format. Use NTFS and then click Quick Format.

If the above does not work, you might want to consider replacing it with a new card.

My psp wont read my memory card but other psp's will please help

if you've tried multiple working memory cards in your psp the memory slot is probably bad. One thing you can try though, go ahead and blow some air into the slot just to make sure theres not dirt or dust that is inside of the slot.

If you do that and it still won't read memory cards then the memory card slot is bad.

Memory card, not right one and stuck!

The PlayStation Portable system is only compatible with "Memory Stick Duo" and "Memory Stick PRO Duo" memory cards. You should have read that in the manual, or on the box, or directly on the unit.

Inserting by force any other type of memory card (including "Memory Stick PRO" that are not Duo) will break your PSP. There are dozens of types of memory cards on the market. They don't have the same shape and size, and they don't work the same way.

Trying to push another type of memory card in your PSP is acting like a kindergarten child who desperately tries to push a cube in a hole that is shaped like a circle.
