    Thanks, I wasn't sure as I never had this mod before wasn't sure if there was a limit or both cards had to be the same.
    Do I just replace or do I have set up something with the other memory card? And a certain format?

    There's some weird formatting trick you have to do with dual card adapters.
    Using the PSP's formatter, I think you need to format each one individually in its own slot, then finally format both at once.

    Would I lose the cfw doing this? And after the format can I just drag and drop the folders back if I move them on my computer?

    CFW is installed to your PSP, not the memory card. I had the same adapter as you and I couldn't ever get it to recognize 32GB cards. I tried everything. You might have better luck than me. I tried a 16 + 32, and a 32+32 and tried formatting them every which way I could. But no, you won't lose CFW. Good luck.

    Yeah man try it out!

    I ended getting a trade for this, I had 2 psp's years ago one that I hacked myself with Pandoras battery and magic memory stick and the other was just a spare.

    I heard that the micro sd cards have to be the same class or it will likely mess up or something of that sort.
