    I bought a 2gb Pro Duo memory card from ebay for £25 this September. Everything was okay. It ran tons of my PSP ISO and movies on my PSP. Then today, I take it out and this happens:

    The part near the connectors just snap and it's just hanging on in there..... JUST. I kinda knew that when I buy memory cards from ebay I should be careful but for this to happen makes me wonder if I should attempt fixing it or get another one?

    hate to say I told you so, but I think I told you that in your original thread about this. Best idea is just to invest in a 4 gig sandisk, they're not that much right now and it'll probably be all you need.

    You'd be even dafter buying a second hand card off ebay [​IMG] You would have got one of the pirated memory sticks. You've just probably been unlucky. I have a pirated sony 2gb memory stick and have no problems with it. Does the pin on the memory stick not just push back in? If you manage to fix it, use the USB cable from now on.
