View Full Version : Possible fix for broken memory stick

August 25th, 2007, 03:29
This may have come up before, sorry if it has.

I broke a 256MB MSPD a couple of hours ago by messing around with FDISK. The stick showed all symptoms of being completely ****ed, namely the flashing MS light and the "no memory stick is inserted" message.

Here is how I fixed it:
I booted the PSP into (3.52M33-2) recovery, inserted an MS that wasn't ruined, and enabled USB. When Windows recognized the drive, I swapped the stick for the one I messed up, and formatted normally.

Here are concerns:
* The 'good' stick and the 'bad' were the same size. This might be important.
* The 'bad' stick had the primary DOS partition removed via FDISK. Sticks ruined by other means may not be recoverable.
* both sticks were real Sony sticks, not freaky Chinese knockoffs.

For some reason, recovery mode doesn't appear to notice or care when the stick is swapped out, or it doesn't notice or care that the stick is "ruined" - I can't tell which.

XMB refused to belive the stick existed at all, other than to blink the MS light.
