    Hey guys!

    This is reddit user MoreDrugsMore3Somes, just wanted to share a step by step video on how to setup the gamecard adapters (SD2VITA) on the windows platform. It was previously only doable on Linux but a kind redditor on the vitahacks subreddit released a tool for Windows and I made a full windows tutorial in return.

    I am also making 1000 SD2VITA adapters that will be available for purchase next week. Follow me on twitter @PSFR33D0M and instagram @TheModsiahHasReturned to keep updated on the next batch going out.

    Enjoy!

    He @SridentPSV made 2000 Adapter. Don't know how do I buy it because he's selling on ebay & ebay is not available for pakistan. I've talked to him in a long chat. He told me to pay through Paypal & he will ship directly & yet another problem. Paypal also doesn't work in pakistan. I told him to provide some other account where I can pay him. No reply yet....

    Yes you can! The .skprx in the description of the video mounts the vita memory at uma0 and the sd adapter card at ux0.

    so how does the micro sd card adapter for the vita work? did you have to hardmod your vita or is it kinda like a gamecard that you insert?

    Woah! This is awesome! I have an original model Vita and PSTV. Both are on 3.60 and running HENkaku. Have been waiting for a better storage solution to come along. I do have a single 64GB memory card I use with my Vita at the moment. Will have to order two of these at the end of the month.

    So if I want to just use the micro sd as not the main memory card, I should use the gamesd file that adds uma0:?

    I don't need to copy the contents of ux0 if I just want to use the micro sd card as uma0 right?

    of course, you can install game on microsd by using SD2Vita adapter. It was created to replaced overpriced ps vita memory after all.
