    I just recently looked at this thread I started wondering about my memory cards.

    http://www.psp-hacks.com/forums/viewtopic.php?id=27111

    I went and looked at my 512MB and 2G card package and was astonished to find this:

    notice the crappy globs of glue holding the package together rather than this:

    My 512 card has been filled completely up and I have had it for about 8 months. My 2GB cary on the other hand has only been filled to aproxamitly 1.2GB (700 MB left on psp) and I have had it for about 1 month. Im hoping Im fine and my fake cards wont break or currupt.

    I cant remember how much space it had when i formated it, and im afraid to take it out of my psp since its working so far. So I am pretty sure they are fake. (both off ebay)

    my 2 gig looked like that one had it in and out of my psp and mobile phone and is still working great after about 3 months or so i cant realy see a problem with them just think they are the older version and they got discontinued by sony.

    Yeah if you bought it off eBay (especially from Hong Kong, but not always necessarily), it's most likely not the real deal. Doens't necessarily mean it will not work, but you may want to be cautious and back up your stuff on your computer every now and then in case it does get corrupted in the future.

    But the one thing, I can't really tell the "globs of glue" from the picture in your post...I've seen that thread before where you got it from, but it's impossible to make out the glue. Is it really cheaply made that they use glue to package it?

    If it was off ebay, its most likely fake and ESPECIALLY if the seller was from Hong Kong like soemoen said. Hong Kong produces more fakes than anywhere, so yea, but a fake isnt necessarily bad, liek they said on PSPU, they tested that they are slower transferring, but they hold more memory! The 1GB held an extra 30MB than the official sony stick, and I would take that extra 30MB over speed, the problem with a fake is worrying about it dying

    Ya but if the memory card does end up dieing on your it sucks because it costs a lot of money to go out and purchace a 2 gig memory card even if it is a fake from Hong Kong.
