By inserting an memory stick into your psp, you can find a memory stick icon displayed under music video photo as well as game section, as long as your psp can detect that, you still got a chance to make it work. Go to the system setting and format your memory stick, so it will create all the relevant directories itself. 

There are many cheap sony replica memory sticks from china and other asian countries, I tried those before, they are not as bad as you are thinking, just like you probably will expreience some slow write and read speed, but they are good enough if you just use them for psp.

Rather surprisingly, there are a lot of compatibility issues with the Sony PSP and its Memory Stick devices. As far as I can tell, there are two problems, actually. The first is simply that there are a variety of different specific types of memory sticks, so saying "memory stick" doesn't guarantee that your stick will work with your PSP.
As a result, I strongly encourage people to only buy memory sticks that explicitly say "Compatible with Sony PSP" to ensure that you aren't inadvertently buying the wrong kind.
The second issue is a trickier one and is kind of hard to imagine, except it's been widely reported in the media: There are millions of counterfeit memory sticks circulating in China and throughout Asia, and with the rise of cheap offshore electronics shops online and the pervasiveness of eBay auctions, it's not as hard as you might imagine to end up paying a cut rate for a counterfeit memory stick that actually won't work with ANY device, let alone a PSP.

My psp memory card dont let me put stuff in


you may have to format the card. Also make sure your card is not placed in the lock position.
    How to Fix a PSP Memory Stick
  1. Step 1 Upgrade your PSP's Firmware (its operating system) before doing anything else. Firmware 5.0 solves many software problems that are encountered with older memory sticks. You can upgrade it by simply connecting your PSP to any wireless connection through its WiFi. Once a connection is established, the PSP will update itself automatically.
  2. Step 2 Check to see that your memory stick's plastic tongs, the small sticks that separate each connection, are straight. If one is bent, your PSP will not recognize the stick.
  3. Step 3 Remove your memory stick if it still does not work. Insert it into a PC with a memory stick slot. You will most likely be able to see all of your saved files. If so, continue to the next step. If you still cannot see your files, then your memory stick is defective, and it is not the PSP's fault.
  4. Step 4 Copy your files from the memory stick to the hard drive.
  5. Step 5 Format your memory stick using the "Format Disk" option in Windows. Open Windows Explorer, and find your memory stick listed in the "Drives" section. Right-click on the memory stick, and click "Format." Follow the on-screen instructions in the windows that pop up.
  6. Step 6 Insert your memory stick into your PSP. It should recognize the disk now. However, you now need to format the memory disk again with the PSP.
  7. Step 7 Go the PSP main menu, and select "Settings." Then select "Format Memory Disk."
  8. Step 8 Put your memory stick back in your PC, and return the files you removed earlier. When you reinsert the stick into your PSP, it should now see all the files.

  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.

My psp memory stick isnt reading in my psp


Flash media is fairly easy to corrupt and often dies without notice. Use a USB adapter and reformat the memory stick. If that does not work, the stick is dead and needs to be replaced.

BIG HELP


is your PSP modified/CFW? if not it wont play cso or iso games. When u formatted your memory stick it will create ISO folder in the root of the memory stick. you said you created the folder, sounds to me that your not using CFW. this wont work.

If your using CFW/modified then format your memory stick using format option of your psp. Copy the cso/iso files to the ISO folder and that should work.

Custom firmware


Earlier you have said that you were able to play games from memory stick and since you updated your psp firmware the didn't worked.
First Check your current firmware version . To do this go to
Settings > System Settings > System Information on your PSP . If you your version showing  for example 5.00 M33 you are still in Custom firmware. In this case you should able to play the games from memory stick. or else you memory stick is back... or you custom settings are wrong.

If its showing  for example 5.00 you are with Sony's official firmware. In this case you wont be able to play the games from  memory stick. From here to make your PSP play the games from memory stick you need to Downgrade your PSP. Only way to make this possible is through Pandora Battery and Magic Memory Stick.
So please check your version and let me know so i can guide you further. Also tell me whether your PSP is PHAT or SLIM & LITE..... or check the version of your PSP by removing the battery. Underneth it find some letters and numbers PSP-100x / PSP-200x / PSP-300x

Use a Card reader to format your Memory stick and then put it back to your PSP and again format. Some times the PSP wont recognise memory stick and contents in it.
