There are lots of fakes knocking about and some of the fakes don't work well with 3.03oea and upwards as I've found out to my cost

Best place at the moment is play.com who are doing 4gb cards for £49.99 incl delivery!!!

ive bough a 4bg sandisc from ebay hour ago for my m8
£25.65 including p & p

ive tested plenty even with a 4gb fake you will easily load games upto
3.3gb before they start running crap,good for the money

i have posted b4 on this matter that nearly all sony mem cards are fake (unless bought from high street store) do your maths and see wat dixons want for 4gb card and then see wat you can buy from ebay or else wer for it doesn`t take a genius to know that one for £30 is fake but alot of fake are fine and work very well i ahve bought lots of amazon and all work fine they load a bit slower but have full mem capabilitys (ie 4gb) if u want a genuine card m8 go buy from a main store and then your sure it is real

to check if your psp mem stick duo is fake, go to the menu in your psp, press triangle over the music icon, then information if it says magicgate unknown you've been bumped

Ive got a fake 4 gigger, £25. Works fine, no problem at all. Fail to see the problem with buying a fake.

You're lucky m8!

Not saying you shouldn't buy a fake - just saying that they don't all work. I've had 2 that haven't worked straight away and 1 that clapped out after about 2 months.

My legit ones I've never had aproblem with.

Each to their own really bud.
