    I have some questions about memory sticks, please answer:

    Does a PSP 3000 V5.03 recognize a genuine 16GB Sony memory stick?
    Would a faster memory card improve game play emulation speed?
    Can I turn off magic gate?
    Can I replace my UMD drive with a memory stick reader?
    Does the Sony PRO-HG Duo work with the PSP?
    What size memory stick should I use to load ChickHEN quickly?
    Can I load ChickHEN from a ProDuo to Micro SD adapter?
    What type of external memory will be usable with the PSP2?
    Someone wants to trade me a 32GB memory stick for my 2 8GB ones is it a fake?
    Pro Duo memory sticks are too expensive, how good are the memory stick adapters?

    Also... I AM FED UP WITH FAKE MEMORY STICKS!!!!

    If I have more questions I will create another topic for each question. Please answer these now cause I need to know.

    Thanks... by the way I am not stoopid I just got lotsa questions and a curious mind which can't be fed by a search on the good old Googley.

    My guess is that 98% of the people who post on the PSP board have both a PSP and a DS. If anything that puts you in the minority! [​IMG]

    Does a PSP 3000 V5.03 recognize a genuine 16GB Sony memory stick?
    Yes.

    Would a faster memory card improve game play emulation speed?
    No, it only affects loading times.

    Can I turn off magic gate?
    Buy an official stick.

    Can I replace my UMD drive with a memory stick reader?
    Yes, but it's quite a hardware mod and not recommended for somebody that can't google.

    Does the Sony PRO-HG Duo work with the PSP?
    Yes.

    What size memory stick should I use to load ChickHEN quickly?
    I've heard ones below 4GB are best, so just keep a spare 1GB around for the initial switch to it, then pop in your other stick with the actual stuff on it.

    What type of external memory will be usable with the PSP2?
    Fuck if anybody knows.

    Someone wants to trade me a 32GB memory stick for my 2 8GB ones is it a fake?
    Fuck if we know.

    Pro Duo memory sticks are too expensive, how good are the memory stick adapters?
    Can be slightly slow, some people have issues, others don't.

    Also... I AM FED UP WITH FAKE MEMORY STICKS!!!!
    Then stop buying the cheapest ones you can find, fucking dur. An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure. I shoveled out $50 for my 8GB legit stick, and I haven't had to fuck with it or buy adapters or anything because I did it right the first time by buying an actual stick.

    The only people who have issues buying memory sticks are eight year old's who've never bought anything online before and cheapskates. Essentially if you want a genuine memory stick you don't buy the cheapest HK import you can find OR use ebay. Do a search, find the average price cluster and use that as a benchmark

    Saken, last time i checked you didn't make a billion different topics trying to avoid paying a genuine price for a genuine stick. It's ok to make a mistake, it's not ok not to learn from the advice you're given and persistently think you can do things better your own way.

    My (used) sandisk 8gb was like $13 on ebay, 100% legit, not everyone is scamming there.
