    how can I format it to psp format and transfer the files from the old one? Do you just do it from the psp? can it boot without the files in the old memory stick? I don't know if I can mess up something so I wanted to ask the experts around here... [​IMG]

    Do Sandisks have any problems or advantages over Sony's? do they even work with homebrew?

    should be a straight copy paste, sandisks are preferred over sony memory sticks coz their much faster

    not sure but make sure you dont get a fake. You will not be able to play ps1 games on them and they are slow so watch what you are ordering.

    i have a 2gb sandisk and a 1gb sony, i experience a lot of slowdowns playing large ps1 games on the sony, but none on the sandisk. It also took me a significantly shorter time to flash my psp with the sandisk.

    you can do a quick check to see if your memory stick is a fake. Go to the memory stick in the psp menu and press triangle and go to information if it says magicgate unknown its fake or its a 3rd party device. if it says magicgate supported you have a non fake sony or sandisk memory stick

    Do you need to have any files on the memory stick to boot a 3.03oe-b psp?

    nope, once you install it with the oeflasher, you can delete everything off of you memorycard. Just folders are set up differently with the new firmwares compared to 1.5 so format memory stick with psp. And then add a folder inside of the psp folder and name it GAME150.

    format it through the menu on the psp. all the folders will show up. it's really easy.
