If you're talking about Sridents micro sd card adapter then you should know it wasn't meant for the vitas memory card to be inserted even if you modded it. Nor were the software patches needed to allow micro sd cards to be read in that capacity meant for actual vita memory cards.

The whole purpose behind the adapter was essentially to allow a cheaper mass storage medium (micro sd cards) to be used as opposed to buying sony's expensive memory cards. By doing this a user could take either the contents of a full official sony memory card, or a vitas internal storage, and clone it to the micro sd card in the adapter which was inserted into the game card slot.

So really this topic would go here had you used the adapter properly, and not attempted a modification of it (which you did), cause all you did was waste money, and nothing you upload as far as pictures showing what errors you're getting can resolve it, since you modded the adapter thinking a vita memory card would work with it......which nothing about the adapters product description says anything about. All that was mentioned for it, and I repeat as I did in the previous 2 paragraphs......were micro sd cards. That's all.

If you don't know what you're doing when modding something, and only making guesses as to what may, or may not happen despite what something is obviously for (be it hardware or software), then you really oughta not try it, cause as you found out there is no helping you in this matter when you decide to blindly go and modify something that had no other purpose beyond what it was designed for. This being the micro sd adapter. All you can do is buy another adapter and try to use it as it was intended.

So you grabbed a sd2vita adapter and wanted to use it in the proprietary memory card? You f++ked up man... proprietary vita cards are a little different and it is necessary another adapter that I believe someone in twitter is making rick something it his name even the pins number is not the same so... its a shame you ''modded'' a home-brew sd2vita adaptor...It can't be used for vita memory cards or the 3g sd card method ONLY the game card method
