Hi all,Sponsored Links
I know this has been discussed previously and their is another tutorial, but not many people have actually see the process and/or a working demo (vid link at bottom) - so here it is...
(Probably best to combine the info here with the tutorial already available on PS3News)
How to use a standard (up to 4gb) MemoryStick (you know the big ones) in your PSP:-
1. Obtain a "[Register or Login to view links]" price is now £18.95/$28.95US - the links are to the UK site.
2. Remove the MemoryStick Module from the P800 battery cover.
- There are 4 "posts" that are "welded" to the PCB - just scratch these off carefully (1 in each corner).
- The Module is also glued onto the plastic cover, so carefully remove the module (I found a pair of scissors pushed in carefully between the module and the cover worked a treat - this is ok, because you will only scratch the metal surround of the module and not the circuits - do be a bit careful though. Always make sure an adult is nearby when using scissors!!!)
3. Cut the PCB down to size - i found that you can cut it down to just bigger than the main module surround without getting too close to the circuits. (Unfortunatly in my excitement i forgot to take pics of this bit!)
Then mount the 'streamlined' module into a suitable container. (I found that a modified MS plastic case worked a treat - cut the hinge and manipulate a bit and it looks reasonable)
Connect the ribbon cable - remember to allow space to open/close the ribbon cable connector. Then tape the ribbon cable down (dont want to accidentally yank it now do we).
Make it look pretty! (I wrapped mine up in black insulating tape to make it blend in a bit better with my PSP!)
4. Make sure the MS will click in and out ok (becareful not to cover the loading mechanism!
5. Connect it to your PSP (carefully) and test that it works!
Hope someone finds this useful,
Edit: I must have forgotten to attach the pics (D'OH!)
