    i believe there wont be a 3rd party memory card because sony made their vita mc the proprietary card and the vita wont accept any other ones cause i remember sony talking about it before the vita released

    Im actually using the two 32GB micro SD cards in my adapter. Works fine in my PSP 2000, something like this would most definitely be beneficial for the VITA. The VITA games are from PSN are big files, only could fit about 20 games before you needed another 32GB for the VITA.

    The SD adapter it’s better, I don’t care the speed of copy &paste Only want play nice :). Or I have PSPgo xD

    I had one of these when I had my CFW PSP. Had 2 8GB sticks in it, and I could hold just about abything I wanted to, it was awesome.

    I wouldn’t recommend going with Chinese knockoff of memory sticks. I doubt there will be an adapter unless it sticks out of the machine and the knockoff cards usually end up being unreliable. I’m really sick of people whining about memory card prices. We knew the prices before the machine came out. You can go to amazon and get an 8gb card for $30. Just suck it up and buy it. Micorsoft charges $100 for a 250 GB sata hard drive and I dont here people complaing about that.

      Problems like price are what lead to innovation. That “Whining” is consumer population voicing what they want. Sony is making money hand over fist on memory as per their business model. A model that is failing them, because it takes advantage of the consumers. People don’t like to be taken advantage of. You are right though, we all knew that Sony would be using extreme pricing tactics on their proprietary memory cards before they ever released the vita. That is the number one reason I decided to leave the vita out of my collection…

    It can handle a 64 xc sd and a 32 gig at the same time I posted a YouTube vid proving it and all my games worked fine

    I had read a few years back that the photofast adapter with 2 32gb sdhc cards in it would only show the psp reading about 42 gigs of memory. I never purchased one for obvious reasons. I could be wrong, has any1 here tried this same setup? What does the psp read whats in the slot? Is it 60 or around 40 like i had read previously? I recently saw a 64gb pro hg duo for 117$ from one of amazons partners. But they now have 64gb sdhc micro cards, i wonder if the psp would read all of it? I will purchase this adapter and 2 64gb sdhc micro cards and will post back my results. Would that not be sick 120gb worth of storage on your psp?

    I’ve had 3 of these, and within 4-5 months of purchase, They all stopped working. I’m currently using a single slot adapter, And that has held up much better (I can remove it from the console without fear of it falling apart).
    The idea is good, But they are really badly made.

      Oh, and just before suffering physical failure (i.e. Them breaking apart despite never moving from the console), They all started to randomly corrupt files. My savedata ;_;

    I bought two of that exact model of adapter a few years ago. I bought two because I read that sometimes they fail. I have had 0 problems with it and I have used it extensively. I use two class 10 16 gig cards in it and read/write speeds are blazing fast. I would have gone with two 32 gigs, but everything I read said that psps can’t utilize more than 32 gigs. One thing to be aware of is that there are “authentic” adapters that work great, and knock off adapters that sometimes work and sometimes don’t. The original and “authentic” ones have silver wording on the packaging.

    i’ve seen that same exact model on amazon but i got one that only uses 1 micro sd. i got a 16GB sd card for cheap for this and that’s enough for me but this is probably good too.

    The only problem with buying one of these adapters would be that you’d be able to put any data you want on it. Which would probably end up *** sony off and causes these adapters to be rejected by the vita

    I use an adapter that a year ago!
    E já quebrei um…

    Sony charges $3.75/GB
    Microsoft charges $.40/GB ($100 250GB drive)
    Internal HDD $.05 – $.45/GB (2.5TB – 40GB)

    Microsoft is only about two times the cost of a same size drive, Sony is 15 times the cost for the equivalent space with their memory cards. I should totally be happy with the price Sony set, a mere 15 times the going rate!

    It’s fairer to compare the price to other flash memory but, it’s an overinflated price no matter how you look at it.

  14. I have been using one of the dual adapters in my PSP for about 2 years now. Up until last week, I had a 32 GB + 16 GB going in it with no problems. I eventually took the 32 GB out to put in my Nook Tablet (this *** likes to read). Now, I have 2x16GB. Works like a charm. The difference in read speed can be minimized by using high speed cards, so, it’s worth the extra few bucks per MicroSD card.

    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!

  18. 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

  19. 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.

  23. GottZ

    i’ve got my 16 gb stick since it was worth 130€

    i never ever cried for buying this one. its fast, its big and i can literarely put a heck lot of games onto it.

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

  25. MoonShell

    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

  26. Acc

    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?

    My programmer is trying to convince me to move to .net fom PHP.
    I have always disliked the idea because of the
    costs. But he’s tryiong none the less. I’ve been using WordPress on several websites for about a year and am worried about switching to another platform.
    I have heard great things about blogengine.net. Is there a
    way I can import all my wordpress posts into it?
    Any help would be greatlly appreciated!
