    I intend to get a Psp slim for christmas (well ask for it anyways!) I bookmarked a few sites selling a Datel Battery for the Pandora Bootup. I'm curious about the memory stick. I own a DS with a 6GB Micro SD card, will that work for this? Besides the battery, a memory stick, and the system of course, is there anything else I need to buy to play iso's such as Jeanne D'Arc?

    Thanks ahead of time!

    No the 6GB SD card will not work on a PSP, the PSP only uses Memory Stick Pro Duo cards.

    In order to play ISOs you need to install custom firmware onto your PSP. For a PSP slim you need a Pandora battery, a memory stick and a PSP with custom firmware already installed.

    That last bit may be different now as I haven't looked into the PSP scene in a little while.

    See that hole in your wall?
    Datel's Tool Battery supposedly works the same as a Pandora battery.
    Also, you can use a MicroSD card, but you need a MicroSD-to-MemStick Pro Duo adapter.

    But isn't a 6gb card a SDHC ? So it might not compatible with that adapter.

    Also you dont need another psp to mod a psp slim.

    Just get the magic memory stick files from some place like pspmod.com and use the pandora/datel tool battery

    Well I got the PSP slim with the Pro Duo adapter for my MicroSD HC? 6GB card. I can confirm it does not work, which is a disappointment. The battery light just flashes orange and I can't format the card. I suppose I'll simply cave and buy a separate pro duo card just for my PSP.

    Thanks for the help everyone.
