    I recently deleted all files on my 256mb card, but when I put it in my PSP empty it says I only have 227mb available. I tried to put a 236mb movie file on the card and it said I had insufficient space. Can anyone explain this to me?

    It happens all the time I have a 1gb and it says I have only 984mb, I know you pay all that money just to find you have been jiped. well I dont know how to fix it I have heard of some kind of defragmenter for flash memory but have not used one. Good luck and next time buy a bigger stick. :twisted:

    the capacity of the memory stick will appear less when formatted - the advertised capacity is it's unformatted size. the filesystem is responsible for occupying a small portion of the memory stick once formatted, thus resulting in less space.
    this is from another post about this

    I did format it using the PSP and thats why I only have 227mb. 30mb is an awful lot for a file system.

    It's not all about the file system. It's about 1024 bytes = 1 kilobyte.

    You see they actualy LIE about the megabytes/gigabytes.

    Lets take a hard drive for example. Lets say you have:

    120,023,252,992 bytes

    They use slang and say you have 120GB. But that's not true. 1024 bytes = 1 kilobyte. Now divide that by 1024 THREE TIMES. You get 111GB. That's how many ACTUAL GBs you have.

    (it's three times because you have to go down to the kilobyte range),

    It's just like a DVD-R. You can't burn 4.7B to a DVD. You can burn 4 million 700 thousand but that's not 4.7GB.
