You can't fix a fake memory card. i've bought several fake memory cards before not knowing they were fake but overall they are worth it. at the time the 8gigs were going for $85 - $140 where as the fakes were like $45. and so far only difference i see is that the real one would register 7.8 gigs of free space where as the fake would only register 7.5 or so.... some people say it access the data slower but its in miliseconds not enough to really matter. but going back to your question... can't fix a fake unless u mean reformatting. just don't buy a fake

Purchased this Diamond Slim 8GB Slim 1.8"LCD MP3/MP4 Radio FM Player on Ebay and then received it. Pretty much a piece of ****. No instruction manual. No idea how to upgrade firmware or load songs. ...


Hello,
You are probably a victim of a scam. Its not a good idea to buy mp3 players off ebay or memory sticks. A lot of them are fake or scams. Especially don't buy ones with odd names like diamond etc.. Its safer to stick with brandnames you know such as sony, ipod, etc..
You can read more about mp3 player / memory stick scams on this ebay post. http://reviews.ebay.com/Fake-MP3-MP4-Radio-FM-Player-and-How-to-fix-it-right_W0QQugidZ10000000010907516

Not reading in computer and camera


It's probably a fake one. I had the same problem; I bought a 16GB one for few bucks from an online store, but it was fake so I faced the same problem.
Read this guide to determine if your memory stick is fake or not: http://reviews.ebay.co.uk/FAKE-Sony-Memory-Stick-Pro-Duo-MagicGate-Cards-Exposed_W0QQugidZ10000000001535763

If it's not fake, then there might be a problem with your memory stick. Try replacing it with a new one if possible.

Hope this helped.

Fake 16 gig sony memory stick


I think instead of waisting your time, go out and buy a new quality name brand memory stick from a reputable dealer. These devices are very cheap in cost these days. This way you will have what you want, it will work properly, and it will have a warranty from the dealer and the manufacture.

I use a lot of these memory sticks. I have some that I share with people work with. We never had any problems with them unless a stick got water in to it or was accidently stepped on.

Memory Stick Pro Duo 8GB on PsP


Two possibilities.
1. The firmware on your PSP is too old to recognise the 8GB (only recognises up to 4GB).
2. If firmware is up to date you have a fake memory stick (easy way to check is to check the info for the memory stick on your PSP if its says that MAGIC GATE is unknown rather than supported then it is fake.

The fake ones typically double compress the data so that it appears to have 8GB when in reality it does not.

Camera warning " this memory card may not be able to record or playback images correctly


This is maybe a Solution but I have the same problem. I have done some research on this and the memory card may be a fake. On the back of the memory card there is some serial code or something. The first like (if it is not fake) will have at lease one S that is kinda sideways for lopsided. Fake ones are not like that.

File error


I was having the same problem with my 4GB memory stick pro duo, when i took more than 50 pictures with my camera (dsc-w90) i would get the blue screen with the file error message. I'm guessing you bought the memory stick on ebay right? I bought mines there and it turns out it's a fake one. If you also bought it there then you most likely have a fake memory stick because I found out that most of the memory sticks sold on ebay are fake, to help you figure out if you have a fake one or not check out this guide or google fake memory stick pro duo. http://reviews.ebay.com/FAKE-Sony-Memory-Stick-Pro-Duo-MagicGate-Cards-Exposed_W0QQugidZ10000000001236041
