    Yeah I just ordered one of those San Disk M2 Memory Cards with a Pro Duo Adaptor...I just wonder...why are they so much cheaper on amazon in comparism to normal pro duo cards? you can even use them for things which require a M2 memory stick...

    As example: a normal pro duo memory stick 8 GB: around 50 -60 euro
    a M2 with a adaptor 8 GB: 34 euro...

    can someone explain me these strange prices?

    It's most likely because the M2 cards don't use MagicGate technology like regular Memory Sticks. MagicGate is a technology made by Sony and, as I see it, it's just some encryption technique that makes the products cost a hell of a lot more.

    Mine says 8 GB and displays around 7,6XX Gigabyte in my PSP =O I don't think they are limited [​IMG] but they are a little bit slower than my 1 GB Pro Duo stick which came with my PSP Giga Pack
