    Can I use this setup to put data on and off the memory card that inside the psp? My PC doesn't have a "proper" reader for it and its annoying to always have to make an extension with cardboard and tape so I can fit it in my reader (uses a MS-pro slot) Also is it normal for it to take about 40 mins to an hour in a ms-pro slot to put a game on it? Was thinking of buying the USB to.. mini-usb or whatever the psp needs, if I'll be able to put stuff on the mem card that way, Assuming its cheaper than a USB reader anyway.

    My computer has a MS PRO Slot and it doesn't take 40 mins to a Hour to transfer a game on it. Same with using a USB cable. Psp games don't take long to transfer.

    I wonder why mine takes so god awefully long then. Takes about 40-60 mins per game for me to xfer it from my pc to the card. Maybe this is the issue, my reader only supports usb 1.1. and the usb 2.0 ports are on the back.

    USB 1.1 is a lot slower than 2.0 so that would be an issue, but even then it should only take half an hour or so for a 1.8 gig game.

    Maybe your card has a slow write speed.
