    Default Sony, Sandisk 32GB Memory stick

    Sony has turned to SanDisk to help it develop the next incarnation of its Memory Stick memory card format: the Memory Stick Pro HG. The Memory Stick Duo-sized card ups the maximum storage capacity to 32GB, though it may be some time before 32GB cards come to market.

    Sony and SanDisk claimed the new card has a maximum data transfer rate of 480Mbps - matching USB 2.0. That's a theoretical maximum, of course - operating system and other overheads will scale it back.
    The Memory Stick Pro HG supports the current 4-bit parallel and serial Memory Stick data transfer buses but also introduces an 8-bit parallel data channel. That, Sony said, ups the minimum write speed from 40Mbps to 120Mbps, but you'll need a Pro HG-compatible device to get it. The 8-bit interface operates at 60MHz, but the card will also run at 40MHz to support the older interface.

    At this stage Pro HG is a specification and, presumably, a set of prototypes. Sony said it would begin offering licenses in January 2007 to companies keen to support the new format in Memory Stick readers. It didn't say when it will bring the format to market. Nor did SanDisk, for that matter.

    psp Yet another example:

    Well, this is good and all but another example of SONY creating something for the PSP that should have been done already or close to done at the time of the PSP's launch. The fact that the PSP came with a mere 32MB stick was, and still is an insult.

    With that being said though, a 32GB memory stick for homebrew enabled PSP's would be homebrew heaven.

    I hope that this sees the light of day soon and that they are compatible in some way with homebrew PSP's. I know there is a 4GB cap and all but I'm hopeful for a workaround.

    I dont think you sould use this in your PSP, im pretty sure that you would need a hardware mod to get around the 4gb cap.

    It would work, but would require a firmware update to support it. I doubt you'll get the full speed performance out of it though.

    Well, 2.82 did remove the 4GB cap, so those lucky *******s with the rarest-of-rare 8GB MSPD can probably use it...
