The PSP while a great console with clearly a low battery life and a screen thats a bit too easily scratched has it seems a far greater problem and that problem is the Dead memory Card Problem, it doesnt matter if you are usin Homebrew/Emulators or just Games and putting Photos/Movies/MP3s on the Card it seems that a simple pressing of the power off button or indeed anything can fry the Memory Card, My card a Sandisk 1gb which cost me over £100 (yes im crying as i write this) died when the emulator i tried crashed and i did a restart by taking the battery out and now the PSP nor Card reader will recognise the Card so im stuck all ways.
At a £100/$100 a throw this is a major worry for all PSP owners, none of us can throw away that type of money, is it a dodgy batch of Sandisk memory cards in my case or is there some miracle cure to get the card working again.
(if there is let us all know)
Whatever the problem we and thats a big we need that fix sooner rather than later.
For those interested my card isnt recognised by my PC or PSP but when in the PSP the orange light is flickering nonstop.
Ok ive fixed it, it seems.
Firstly you need to get a PC Reader for the Mem Card this doesnt work on PSP at all or via the USB Lead.
Once you have your PC Reader installed then insert your 1gb card (in my case)
When i clicked on the drive it was slow to enter and it said there was nothing there.
Right Click the drive the card is in
Click format (dont quick format)
If your Lucky it will format and you will have a working card again.
This has just worked for me and the PC Card Reader cost me £8 so its a worthwhile investment., remember before you format and you click on the drive it wil say theres nothing there but if you right click and then format you may if your lucky be able to format and save your card.
Fingers crossed for you all, my card seems to be working fine now
