Never heard a story like this before. Usually it is something like "my cat ate my stick and pooped it out and now it wont work" or "my mom stepped on it and it broke in half so i used some electrical tape and now it won't work". I don't know what to tell you. As long as there is no trace of homebrew on it, call Sony Customer Support and tell them exactly what happened.

He said that the stick didn't even show up. Try it in another Memory Stick Duo device (such as another PSP) and if it works, try blowing into your Memory Stick slot. Dirt may have gotten in that is preventing the connection from the card to the PSP.

Right the girl in the sony shop tried it in a digi cam but couldnt reformat it.
was then told to send it back to whom i purchased it from!!! which would be great but cant get hold of him! (fecking Ebay!!!) So any ideas if this is right surley they must be obliged to fix it? ok imported from jap but still sony.
yep tried all the blowing thing, turning on and off with card in still to no avail.
i know its the card as i can read my 32Meg card in my psp fine.

Oh yeah everything went in correct folder so dunno!! ah the confussion and upset :mad:

Begining to dislike my PSP now nothing but a pain lol
