Setting up your SD2Vita adapter – Formatting your microSD can be done on Windows


I'm a girl that's liked technology from day 1. Mostly interested in the PSVita/PSP scene but I've always modded my stuff when it's possible, that is :)Contact me via DM at @KawaiiAuroraA on Twitter if you have any questions/concerns about my articles or if you have any article requests.

      I have the Same problem, when SD2Vita is inserted ( or atleast when the mSD is also in it) the PSvita takes forever to boot. When i get it out, it continues to boot. When i try to shut it down it won’t till i eject the card. What could be wrong?

    Totally freezes your vita trying to run Taihen…… No idea how to fix this at all…. I think my Memory card is @*$*@@ now… Will have to reformat EVERYTHING just to make it work which takes too long to even bother trying at this point….. I think I am going to just throw the vita in the closet and forget about it until they do a full CFW that is not prone to this sort of screw up in the future.

      It actually isn’t stalled, it’ll stop while doing that with the firmware setup with the sd card as the main storage, then just lock the screen by tapping the power button and unlock the screen and you should be on the home screen. after i do that I can run my custom stuff again.

    I followed all these instructions to the T and my SD Card doesn’t show up. Now what?

      If you’re positive it is set up properly then it probably is the adapter not making good enough contact. If it is a bare board then pad the back with some tape for a tighter fit.

    Does anyone have a link to the driver that will mount the SD card as uma0: for henkaku esnso 3.65?


    I’ve followed all the instructions, however, it failed. Here’s what I did:-

    1.) My PS Vita is 3.60 HENkaku (not Enso as I don’t wanna mess it up with my os0)
    2.) I used Switch SD2VITA and it did read it as uma0, but it didn’t show up on my VitaShell.
    3.) I reboot it, didn’t work either. It still shows my Vita MMC and not the external memory.
    4.) I transferred the gamesd.skprx via USB and not FTP.

    Is there anything wrong or does anyone have a concrete details or instructions on how to use SD2VITA?

    I did this using the guide and video and it worked creating the extra storage, however i couldn’t install the games because when i tried to it came with an error. I then rebooted my Vita and it didn’t stop at starting TaiHen and the extra storage was gone. Now i’ve tried to repeat the process several times but the same thing keeps happening and there is no extra storage and it doesn’t stop at “starting TaiHen”.
    Can anyone please help me? And yes i am sure i have done it exactly the way it was stated in the video and it worked the first time.

    I did everything and in the last step when I try to open molecule it says the file is corrupt. Is there anything I can do?

    Need a Updated .img or Formatting Process. 200GB+ Cards have Issues with incorrect Available Storage Amounts. I have more than 90GB left on my 256GB Card, but VitaShell and Adrenaline BOTH are showing 0KB Left (Amount Increases if you Delete a Item in the Card).
