    Since I have seen this asked so many times I'll write out how I finally got it working

    1) Put 2 x 128gb into the cr5400
    2) Put in PSP
    3) Turn on PSP and go to system in the psp menu and format
    4) It will format to about 160gb or so
    5) Connect your PSP via USB Cable to PC
    6) Copy the folders from your PSP memory card to a temp folder on your PC
    7) On your PC download http://www.ridgecrop.demon.co.uk/guiformat.exe (Fat32Format with GUI)
    8) Run it and select your PSP and format it with it
    9) Copy the Folders from step 6 back to your PSP card
    10) Enjoy

    Note - I Had a error when running fat32format that the device was in use to fix it

    1) Download and run https://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/sysinternals/processexplorer.aspx
    2) Use the program and click Find -> Find Handle or DLL
    3) Type in the drive letter like " h: " (without the ") and it will tell you what program is using it
    4) Open resource Monitor http://www.pcworld.com/article/241677/how_to_use_resource_monitor.html on how to do this
    5) Find the process, right click it and select Kill Process

    Here's me with a 4gb memory stick pro duo in my PSP from like 10 years ago. Back then that was huge and held quite a lot of games (for the time). I had WipeOut, Ridge Racer, GTA, Lemmings, Bomberman and whatever else I was playing at the time. Not played much on my PSP for years now, however i really should get it out again.

    256 was pretty slow

    Did you use the PSP hombrew Game Categories Lite 1.4?

    If you use that to break your games up into folders that should help.
