    In that case, no, you can't buy just any Memory Stick. Many places such as eBay and a handful of other sites sell fake Memory Sticks at a low price and they don't have MagicGate. You need a Memory Stick with MagicGate in order to make a Magic Memory Stick. Yes, you can use a 4GB or 8GB memory stick, that's more than enough to make a Magic Memory Stick.

    You don't need MagicGate, the fake ones from DealExtreme work fine as well. MagicGate is only needed for Sony licensed crap, not for Magic Sticks.
    I'm not sure about the 8GB as well, wasn't there a limit of 4GB, because it used 1.5 kernell which didn't support 8GB sticks yet? Or has that been solved in a later version already?

    That is 1 of the reasons why i am asking [​IMG]

    So, the 4GB works fine, but you don't know about 8GB?

    After doing some research, I found that 8GB memory sticks can be used. It says so here. You have to do some scrolling, or hit Ctrl+F and put in "8gb" and it will take you to where it sais 8gb memory sticks can be used.
