    I'm purchasing a PSP from a friend within the next few days, and I plan to install CFW on it.
    Having figured out the whole Pandora Battery/Magic Memory Stick combo.. I'm currently looking for some good quality Memory Sticks.

    I want one good size Memory Stick for homebrew, ISO's, and whatnot. (Maybe 4 - 8GB, depending on the price)
    And another smaller stick to be used as a Magic MS. (1GB, maybe something smaller so as to save money)


    Since I'm pretty new to the PSP scene, I'm not sure where to look for Memory Sticks that are light on the wallet.. Care to direct me? [​IMG]

    at least in germany you get the M2 Micro Memory Sticks + Duo Adapter for a cheaper price than a normal sized duo stick...so I would look into their prices aswell... you could use a cheap Dealextreme memory stick as Magic memory stick (DX's memory sticks are fake but okay as MMS) but use a real one as ISO MS

    I'm in the same boat as you lol - buying a PSP off a friend with intent on modding it. What the guy above is saying is rather than buy a memory stick, buy a microSD card instead as they are cheaper. To buy a 4gb mem stick it'll cost around £20 but to buy a 4gb microSDHC it'll cost around £5 - £10. You'll need to buy a microSDHC to MS Pro Duo adapter though to turn your microSD card into a mem stick.

    Actually, Raki is referring to $ony's version of the microSDHC which is called M2.

    You mean these?

    The adapter doesn't cause any reading lag or anything?

    I don't know from personal experience, but I have heard some rumblings about the adapter causing lag, especially if you are going to have a larger memory card.

    What I have are three different 4 gig memory sticks. Two of them are Lexars that I bought off Frys.com, they are less than 30 bucks each. I wanted a lot of space, but did not want the lag and speed problems that Ive heard about with 8 gigs, so I just got several 4 gigs and carry them around everywhere. BTW, there is a thread here somewhere where everyone posted their speed test results for their memory sticks, and everyone who had the Lexar's kicked as*....
