    I forgot how this works.
    If i turn of the system and swap, can I directly go about my business.
    Or do I need to format, backup etc. Because that ain't pretty with 64 gb... :(

    Also I read this:
    http://hackinformer.com/2015/06/26/how-to-swap-your-vita-memory-card-without-formatting/

    How do i get this ID.dat from the memory card?
    I made a backup of my 64 GB card but no such file..

    I also have 16 GB with different region PSN.. thats why I ask aswell.
    But want to buy a 2nd 64 GB if I can easily switch atleast...

    I'm not sure about the HackInformer post, but I can just swap cards as I please. I have a 64 GB and an 8 GB that both work fine on the same system, holding different games. They just need to be formatted for the PSN account on the system. The only thing you really lose through switching cards is your home menu layouts, which is why I've not really been doing it lately (since I have a L O T of games to sort on my 64 GB card).

    Edit: Wow I skim read the HI post badly. That's to use cards with two different accounts, which I have no idea about. If it's the same account though, you can just put it in like I said above.
