Question about Sony Playstation 3 (PS3) Console

Memory Cards/Sticks My PS3 detects some cards but not all. I currently have a 1Gb card working happily in my PSP which isn't detected when inserted in the PS3. Why?

    Thanks, but I've already tried and done all of this, my memory stick which I use in the PSP is a Sony Memory Stick Duo Pro 1GB which has only ever been used in the PSP (in which it works perfectly) so I cannot see why the PS3 won't recognise it. The other Sony memory stick I have, a 32MB Memory Stick Duo does work so I don't think the drive is faulty - I think it's a firmware issue. Surely some others are having the same problem?

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

The memory card might already be damaged or corrupted. try inserting it in a linux computer, if it still dont recognize it, then it might be damaged forever.

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.

I have sony erison w830i model. even after inserting my memory card in my cell it says not detected. i had recently formated the card. please help


Format the memory card using some other mobile or using computer. If then also it is not working then the memory card is damaged.

Also pls check whether the card u r using does not exceed the limit of the phone(I think it supports only 1GB external memory. If u r using a card having more memory than that, it will not be detected)

well, im guessing you might have to download a program that recognizes the duo cards the psp uses.. try that id say. or try inserting the duo card seperately into the computer threw a card port for the type of card. but id try to find a program directly form sony to transfer the files.
