    Hi, I'm interested in getting a memory stick for my psp but does anyone know when the 4gb ones will be released?

    If I don't wait am considering one of these and so would like to know what your opinions are, what the differences are and why the differences in price? Also where are the best places to get them from?

    I have read the sandisk is a bit faster than sony, but the normal sandisk, not the one you mention, which is the ultra. That one is the most expensive, but should also be the fastest. I am very happy with my sandisk pro duo gaming.

    Thanks for the help!

    Does the speed make much of a difference? Is it just the time to access the files or do the files lag etc if I get the slower ones, eg if I were watching compressed videos would I get slow down?

    This article is very good to highlight the difference between Sony and Sandisk.

    Memory Stick Duos have a Limit of 4GB. Hopefully, as some of the comments suggest, Sony could release a firmware update to allow more memory, I guess it's just an issue of how the interface works.

    and dont forget if you convert ya stick to fat 32 you should get another 3rd of capacity out of any memory stick.

    Also i dont think it makes a difference as to how large your storage capacity is, think the psp is not suppose to be just a portable playstation - think sony have bigger ideas for it.

    therefore :- 2 gig - fat 12 , 2 gig - fat32 about 2.900 gig.

    did you know you can get 353 mp3`s at a bit rate of 128 on one 2 gig stick?
    hope your enlightend.

    click....

    All you have to do is plug your psp to the computer and back up all your psp files. Right click on the drive it shows up as click format go to file system and select FAT32.Then copy your files back.This file system load faster and small files take up less space (in as simple terms as I could put it).

    Hi

    I've formatted both a 1 gb Sony and 2 GB Sandisk with no problems

    I didn't copy over my old file structure - I just reinstalled any applications needed after I'd setup the directory structure manually via a PC

    Many thanks
