    I got myself a 32gb sony sd card + micro sd card adaptor so I can play more ISO's but lately it has been messing up a bit. either it doesn't run the PRO CFW 6.60 program or a game crashes and I am forced to take out the battery.
    I also looked up to see if others had the same issue and I found out that there has been faulty/fake sd cards being sold on some sites but now I am thinking I got myself a fake sd card but I want to make absolutely sure that either mine is okay but it has issues or I stupidly got myself a fake.
    This is where I bought the sd card http://www.amazon.ca/Memory-Stick-C...=1370619599&sr=8-1&keywords=32gb+sony+sd+card

    99% of the time the problem lies with MSPD to microSD adapter. These adapters have quality all over the chart so it is sort of like lottery. If formatting doesn't solve the problem then you either have to,

    * Keep buying those adapters until you find a working one, OR
    * Swap microSD card till you find one that works with adapter
    * Man up and buy the real 32 GB MSPD.

    Honestly, memory card is one thing your really don't want to cheapen out.

    ^yes this is true. I had a 4gb pro duo that worked so well for the longest time then the memory suddenly froze to read only one day... before it could fall apart I took all my save files and backed them up (very slowly... took a long time for like 64 mb...) I diesected to find that the pro duo was actually mirco SD!

    I just bought myself a super cheap 32gb micro sd+adapter on ebay, it's been a week with no problems. Seems it's just luck of the draw man.

    Should I get another one or should I just deal with what I got?

    I'm using one of those adapters that has space for two micro SD cards in it. I haven't had any issues yet. (knock on wood)
