No source will read my memory stick pro duo mark 2

  1. Try re-formatting your memory stick from your PSP console. A memory stick that is formatted from a PC or other hand held console sometimes cause incompatibility problem with the PSP.
  2. If your PSP still can not read the memory stick, try checking your memory stick by using your friends PSP and see if they can access the memory stick.
  3. If the memory stick can be accessed by your friends PSP then there is a problem with the memory slot of your PSP.
  4. The only way to check the contacts of the memory slot of your PSP is to disassemble you PSP and take out the mother board.

Hi sir
  • 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 Open up 'My Computer'. You should see it under the list of available drives.
  • 3 Check its contents first to make sure that you have the right drive.
  • 4 In 'My Computer', right-click on the drive and choose 'Format'.
  • 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 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.

Also, please check your card reader if it supports Memory Stick Pro Duo.

    If you already have an adaptor but still doesn’t work, you can buy a PSP USB data cable to transfer files between your computer and PSP.

    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.

    Yes there is a way. What you will need is a PC, Some form of Memory stick Duo card Reader, And a PSP Compatible Memory stick Duo/Pro Duo.

    If you havent already used the memory stick inside the PSP it will not have the correct Formatted file System for use in the PSP. but you can create the file system using your computer.

    heres how to do it ! :

    1) plug your Memory stick Duo/Pro Duo into the card reader on your computer.
    2) open my computer, locate the Memory stick usually found under the "devices with removable storage" area.
    3) once inside the memory stick, create 2 seperate folders. One called "PSP" and the other one called "MP_ROOT".
    4) Navigate into the "PSP" Folder and create 3 Folders, "MUSIC", "PICTURE" & "VIDEO"
    5) Copy & Paste the Necessary files into each Subsequent Sub-Folder within the "PSP" Folder.

    Note : The PSP Can only handle Certain File types for Pictures, Music, And Video. i would suggest Navigating to before you transfer your files to ensure that you are adding files which are Viewable/Readable by The PSP's software.

    Hope this helps !?

    If the mem. stick doesn't work in anything else then your memory stick may be physically damaged. Just open the card in any computer using a card reader and format it using the FAT file system.
