I dont even get why people want sony memory cards. Sandisks are faster and most importantly cheaper.

Why would you ever buy are 2GB card on ebay thats going to work for year or so and for 90 bucks. Newegg is selling 2GB sandisk cards for $49.
What are you talking about? I format all my large cards FAT32 without a problem. PSP still can read FAT32 it's just not 100% supported (Space wise). If it's taking 58 minutes to transfer an ISO from you PC to MS, you have problems... It takes 10-15 to transfer a 1G ISO from my PC to my 4G Microdrive which is formated FAT32, but it's not the format's fault, it's the Microdrives fault. I plan on replacing it with a 4G CF ULTRA II once my friend finds it... that will make a huge difference.
It will make a hugh difference! I replaced my Datel HDD with a Kingston 4GB CF X100 card. You will like it but there is an even better solution and that is you can buy the Datel Max Media Dock for $40 US. The max media dock has a slot for a CF card so you can swap cards if you have more than 1 and you can also use a card reader to write large files to it. The reason that is of value is that the interface for both the Max Media Dock and the HDD have much slower transfer rates than regular memory sticks. So it is very easy to pop out the CF card and slap it in my card reader and write those large ISO's to it at usb2 speeds. Oh and another bonus is that I can use my Datel 4GB HDD in the max media dock. I use it for movies, pics and music and I have all my game cso's on the CF card. So now I have 8GB of storage space on 2 cards! Plus 4GB CF cards are way cheaper!
did anyone test the 8GB stick with his psp yet?
would be interested to know if there is a way to make it work? maybe fake formating it with fat?
If you format a 8gb stick with FAT, you will only be able to use 4gb since the FAT file system has a maximum volume limit of 4gb. Also, a firmware update would definately be required for the PSP to access the full size of an 8gb stick, possibly by allowing the PSP to properly address FAT32 or NTFS file systems.
