I have to admit that I can't get enough storage. I have hard drives just sitting around in case I need to move somthing, or I'm going to a friends and either they want something I have or I want something they might have. What I'm going to talk about today is cost effective memory for devices. I don't know how this particualr device will work in a camera, as That's not what I use in my camera, in fact I don't have a camera that doesn't either use SD, or the old compact flash card, that's not so compact anymore.

There's this thing that uses two micro sd cards to double the capacity of your memory, and it costs about 4 bucks, without the Micro SD card. I have had one for about a year and was going to throw it away because I couldn't get it to work with my computer, or with my Sony Reader. However I found out by one last ditch effort that this thing works beautifully with my Sony PSP. there is no software to speak of associated with this thing, you simply put in two SD cards of the same size... (if you put in two different sizes it will still work, you'll only double the smallest cards size though) and format through the psp. Viola you know have a 29 GB memory card for your PSP. why is this important ? well for starters you can carry more music and more videos. Second if you have gone the way of the hacker.... you can store more games on your card...

There are just a few things you have to note.... I speak from experience... you have to use the usb connection to the PSP to do any file moving, as I said previously the card doesn't play well with my computers or card readers... I not saying it won't work at all, just hasn't worked with anything I own. Second, If for some reason you try to Hack/crack your PSP don't attempt to delete a game from the psp, use the usb file browser to remove games. if you delete from the PSP you are likely to have to move all your files off, reformat and start again... just a couple things I have noticed... if I had done something like that.


anyway, Here's a link....

 and if you want to buy one, get it off ebay, I've seen them as low as $1.99

Perfect, wondered where I could buy one. Also, Ive never had the deleting file problem with a regular card, must be something to do with the way that thing handles its formatting.

Very true, however most machines, even today are still coming with USB 2.0, so unless you using an antiquated machine, or a blazing new machine, so either way, you still have to weigh how much the card will handle, and how much time you have for transfering data. I have actually stopped using this, as I'm having more issues, Currently I can load the card, and play for about a week before the PSP doesn't see the games anymore, I'm thinking there's more to it though, as it still see's the saved games, just not the games themselves. I format again, and reload the games and get another two weeks... frustrating.
