Question about Sony Playstation 3 (PS3) Console

2 Answers

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

Turn the computer off.
Insert the card one way, until you feel resistance, and measure how much of the card sticks out.
Then, remove it, turn it over, and insert the card again, and measure again.
Remove the card.
The smaller measurement is the instance where you correctly inserted the card.
Turn the computer on.
Open "My Computer".
Correctly insert the card.
The "My Computer" window will update, in less than 30 seconds, to reflect that the card has been detected, and Windows has been configured to access the card.
Double-click the changed icon, to "open" the files/folders that exist on the card's memory.

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.

check your card reader or check your card into another computer if it works then it is your card's problem if the card does not detect with a new card reader then its time to change the 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.
