    Keep an eye out. Here in USA 32GB micro SD now can be found on sale under $30. Compared to Sony's own whopper asking price of $129 for a 32GB memory stick last time I checked.

    I don't think so. HG duo has other differences I'm not familiar with.

    What we've been using for 64GB, is a special micro sd adapter that makes two cards believe they're one.

    Actually, the limit was raised to 2TB in some of the earlier custom firmwares (5.00 M33, I think) but the 6.xx Pro/TN firmwares haven't implemented that patch (as it would only work for permanent CFW unless you were willing to switch cards). Of course, the only way to even test it would be to build a memory stick to IDE/SATA adapter so why bother at this point?

    My PSP (2000) currently has 64GB in and it works flawlessly. 2 X 32gb micros SD cards and one of them photofast cards which allow 2 micro SD cards to be used in the memory card slot of the PSP.

    Enough space for about 80 or so PSP games. Perfect

    If you've got about $170 to spend, LOL!!

    64GB microSD x2
    http://www.amazon.co...ds=64GB+microSD

    Photofast dual slot microSD Adapter
    http://www.amazon.co...ref=pd_sim_pc_3

    Altogether, it comes out to be $169.95. The free shipping on both items helps, but just a little, lol. If anyone has $170 to spend and wanna try this, I'd love to see pictures of a PSP with more than 100GBs of space open in the memory card info xD

    The amount you're looking for is 2TB.

    64GB does not require custom firmware. Sony implemented support for memory sticks they have not released.
    It isn't without precedent. Gamecube could use 2043 block cards, yet Nintendo chose to not produce their own.

    I don't know whether custom firmware increases PSP's limit beyond what Sony included.

    Might there be a M2 version of that for the Go?

    Actually, SDXC 3.0 and SDHC cards are the same except for the capacity and default filesystem. To be specific, "FAT32-formatted SDXC cards can be used in a host device built for SDHC if the host device (that would be the adapter) can handle 64GB and larger volumes". Several people have them in their HTC Thunderbolt which is not a SDXC device yet it works just fine.

    Back in the days of 5.xx CFW (or was that 4.xx?) using 64GB and higher did require CFW due to a bug in Sony's driver (check the M33 release notes/changelogs if you don't believe me). However, they raised the limit to somewhere around 250GB in the 6.xx firmware versions which is why nobody has bothered to make a patch to raise it to 1TB (it is only 2TB if only unsigned variables are used and knowing Sony they probably used signed variables in some of their games).

    I don't know what you're trying to say here, but the biggest an SDXC card can be is 2TB.

    I guess partly right/wrong was a good start.

    I am saying the difference between SDHC and SDXC is just how it comes formatted. In other words, take a 64GB SDXC card and reformat it with FAT32 and it is a 64GB SDHC card.

    the m2 is pretty much the exact same size of a microsd card

    Do you mind posting which microSD cards and dual adapter that you're using? I would appreciate it :D!
