Best memory stick for a PSP?

If I decided not to jailbreak it, what size should I go for?

     If you're not going to jailbreak or buy digital games (is this even still a thing on PSP?) you wouldn't need a very big one at all for game saves.  Unless you're wanting to put MP3s and videos on your PSP.  In the times before smart phones that was a pretty amazing thing to do.  :)  I don't know what old memory sticks sell for these days, so maybe look for one in your budget? 


I would suggest jail-breaking to run games off of memory stick tho since they load faster and use less battery power.  Plus MicroSDs are huge in comparison.  I'm sure you could find a good guide to ripping your own games if you don't want to go full on piracy.

Been using the SanDisk memory stick pro duo sd card adapter(s) with 16GB and 32GB on my PSP's for quite sometime now.

I was lucky to snag 6 (inc. 1GB SanDisk SD-Card) of them from my local computer shop on a clearance sale quite a few years ago.

Don't use cheap no-name SD cards as they just cause problems.  Mine are using genuine SanDisk ones.  Tried a cheap one and ended up throwing it into the trash.

It's the PS-Vita that needs to be jailbroken to use the SD2Vita Adpaters.

You can find NOS 1/2GB SanDisk branded cards on EBay.  I suggest getting a newer one over a used one due to the age and wear level.  It would be a bummer to lose your saves if the used one craters.


I recommend one of the following brands in NOS packaging:


SanDisk (licensed)

Lexar (licensed)

Sony (official)
