    Many people have fakes and don't even know they do. If you want to know check if it is magicgate compatible on your psp.

    epic failure as a tutorial topic. Not to mention stolen text and gives no credit to original author.

    If you have a PSP, the foolproof way is simply to go to a memory stick icon and select info. Any genuine pro duo should say Magicgate: Supported.

    or My Computer properties, if it shows a brand name that isnt connected with the brand (Sony, Sandisk, Lexar) of the MS, its fake.

    I had a SanDisk, packaging and stuff looked legit. Bought it in BestBuy here in Canada. I found it takes a long time to format. And couldnt use it for making a Magic Memory stick. Bought a Sony, not the fake one, it worked.... So many sandisk are fake.

    I doubt Best Buy sold you a counterfeit memory card.

    I got my first MS from eBay, I expected a fake and I got a fake.
    Fake is not too bad for an introductory MS, but you'll eventually want real ones anyway.
