    Oh boy, I’m sure that’ll work. I can’t imagine how long it would take to load all those games. I had 2 32gb cards in that photofast adapter. It was like 10 seconds, TEN!!

    Look at read and write speeds for cards adapters and psp go from there. If you do 256 you can do 512 cuz there are adapters that support 2 cards. I’ve read space can go as far as meets the eye.

    I', not sire what the upper limit is on size but i'm sure i read there is a maximum number of games the PSP will show so may be a waste even going with 256gb.

    LOL I play a lot of games and can only fill up a 32 gb with what I consider good games. I can't imagine 400 unless you just want every single PSP game ever made.

    I have 64GB in mine, but I have been wanting to get 128GB, or a 256GB, but it never works. What Adapter is being used for those who have 128GB+ Cards?????????????

    Only problem is, a lot of Links I see are saying only 64GB is max. Does the Card need to be a Specific type?

    I'd just get a single-slot MSDUO adapter and a large microSD formatted to FAT32 and call it good. Those dual-card adapters are asking for trouble. And to directly anser the OP, yeah, if the card was formatted properly and with maybe some luck. But the system would be SO SLOW.

    It would, but not function properly. Anything over 32GB gives weird results, and isn't recommended. Just buy some of those dual 16GB memory card adapters and a few 16GB cards for them, and call it a day.
