View Full Version : Memory Card Help!!!

July 8th, 2005, 18:20
I just got a SanDisk 1GB MS for my PSP (Finally! it was on backorder for the past month) . I also seemed to have corrupted the data. On my psp it says 0kb available for my card. When I try to format in my PSP I get a message saying 'Format failed.' and an error code (8001007c).

When I hook it up to my computer it shows up and I can look through all the files and see everything that was originally there. If I try to delete or move anything I get a message saying the it could not specify a path. After that it won't show me whats on the card until I remove the card reader and replug it in.

I tried to format the card by going to my computer and right clicking on the removable disk and choosing format (making sure I do not explore the card as im doing so) and it always says 'windows has failed to format the card'. I've tried doing formatting in FAT and FAT32 and it always fails.

Can someone please help!

Format it on your PC, then do a format again but on your PSP.

Yes, I read these are defective often. Try and get yo mula back. It isn't worth the hassle. Plus you might get a shiny new memory card, yippy.
