    I am thinking of getting a 512mb Sony Pro Memory stick from ebuyer but just wanted to know what the difference betwen pro and non pro was.
    I want to put some music on the memory stick and maybe a film, hopefully I should be able to download a film to the memory stick and get good quality picture.

    Well you wont find a Memory Stick bigger than 128Mb that isnt either a Pro Duo or a Pro and the difference between a Pro Duo and a Pro is the size, a PD is small and will fit inside the PSP where as a Pro is over double the length and wont fit inside the PSP. I also believe the Pro Duo has a faster transfer rate which is important when watching films.

    Yea that will work fine but I got a Sandisk 512Mb Pro Duo for just under £40 and it worked fine so before you go and spend over £60 you might want to consider one of them.
