    I have also been using one of these for many years in both my older PSP fat and my PSP Slim 2000. It was a single card model and seemed to limit transfer speeds to about 10MB per second. From what I can tell my 16mb Sony Magic gate card never did speeds better than that so I doubt the PSP bus can really take advantage of it. I was using a type 4 microSD 16GB card for a long time but just got a SanDisk type 4 32GB card from OfficeMax last week for $20. Works great and I have just about every good PSP and PS1 game I want to play plus videos and mp3 on it. I would really like to see a vita adapter but don’t count on it. The vita card is just slightly bigger and I think it is using some DRM hardware so unlikely we will ever see an adapter. I did get a 16gb Vita from NewEgg for $46 and free shipping a few weeks ago so that is a lot better than street retail for those looking to upgrade. Happy I held on to my 8gb with the new card/accounting locking *** in 1.80. Really enjoying the PS1 games though as I have good old Suikodan and SOTN on Vita now and they look pretty. Looks like no multi-disc support yet on Vita PS1 so I have to wait for FF and ChronoCross.

    micro sd adapters are very convenient. I believe that the reason some adapters break easily when the owner often removes or interchange the memory card. This can also happen with regular memory cards regardless if its original or fake. If you want it, Get it. set up that adapter with the micro sd combo that you like or can afford. insert memory card adapter to psp and start using it. its cheaper to get a mini usb cable. stop using that card reader.

    If it doesn’t mean noticeably slower load times for games stored on memory. I would buy 2 of these for the Vita the day they’re created!

  4. i’ve been using this adapter for over a year now… it’ss the same model as on the picture… i’m using 8+8GB… i also think that it has greater reading speed than the original MS, probably due to the fact that i have 2 exactly same microSDs’ and that they both are the high speed models…so if you mix different types of cards you don’t get that kind of speeds. On windows 7 transfering files using usb cable connected to the psp, when the original HS MS 4GB is used, i get max 3,5MBps, and when my 8GB+8GB adapter is used, i get 5-6MBps

  5. the only bad thing about the adapter is that it is very fragile, infact, my has the top lid brokend on the edges, but it still works, from time to time when i eject the adapter and reinsert it again in my psp i have to do it 2-3 times before i get it in in the right position so that it reads well the cards, but once inside, i have no more problems, even when shaking my psp it doesn’t lose the contact position. i guess i’ll buy 2-3 adapters more, cuz they don’t cost me nothing and are preety useful

    Good article but it`s nothing new.. also I have a hard time seeing how they could make such an adapter for the vita

    I use a dualslot adapter myself with a singel card it work pretty well 4gb class4. The r&w speed on my psp is similar to an orginal with magic memory gate .. the r&w via usb is much better. I´m a littel sorry that it seems like close to no alternativ product is @ the market. I saw some other adapter (exter) which make psp read sd cards but they are very expensive. I had a look if can build a psp card reader myself by the use of an pro duo card and a lan cabel which i want to conect to an card reader.. i was a littel shy so i did a new web search and i found / bought that cr-5400.
    I doubt that my own build adapter /card-reader had a chance to work as fine as the one from china :) .. it should be possible but i don´t want the melt the usb-fuse^^

    Is anyone using adapter for psp go m2 card?!

    i just bought some single slot adapters for $1.83 each and some 16GB class 10 lexars for $14.99 each (sale not fake) works great.

    im happy with the decision. dunno if adapter will last or fry just got em. if they last amazing!

    i only had ordered 3 adapters. going to order more as spares now that i got to try this first hand.

    I use a single slot adapter with a 16GB SDHC card without any trouble.

    i own photofast & 2x16gb class 10 TEAM microsd.when i tried to copy file into the psp directly using usb connection,i got around 7,5MB/s write speed(win7).and when i tried blackspeed v2 to benchmark the card,i got around 16MB/s max read speed and around 10MB/s write speed,i think the speed is quite good

  12. Acc says:

    So does this mean they’re faster than original MSduo (since I read in the comments it’s comparable only to class 4, even the originals with MagicGate)? Or does the adapter limit the speed itself?

    The Vita uses a completely different memory card format with no currently known adapter.
