    Sony 1gb started playing up (wouldn't be read properly by PSP, wrong amount of MB left shown, always corrupting itself, etc)

    Got annoyed always trying to format it, which hardly ever worked because everytime my psp found the ms, it'd lose it straight away. (no, it's not my psp, my Sandisk works fine.)

    ended up ripping the plastic part off it. i got the green chip thingy in front of me.

    I thought sony made these and their parts? Mine says Samsung. =/

    well..the plastic case says sony at least.. also came in sony packaging. lol.

    but, bought it off some asian guy a few days after i got my psp. he was selling them cheaper than the stores at the time. so.. yeah. lol.
    well, it had a good run. lol. just a shame i ripped it apart.

    could've bought a new sony 1gb from a store and then returned my old one saying it doesn't work and get a refund or replacement...

    onlly a few companys make nand flash memory, samsung is the leading brand adn most companies use it (sony, intel, the memory in your computer whatever brand it is) most likely has samsung memory

    other companys are amd, ocz, patriot, sandisk, mitsu, and intel but samsung is the most commonly used

    Sony does not make ANY chips. They probably assembled the memory stick and that's about it.

    Stephen at AeroXP is the worlds greatest piece of CRAP! I urge anyone and EVERYONE to go give him hell. He uses his authority at that site to slander and lie about people then lock the threads before any clarity can be shown.

    I just wanted to see what the inside of a memory stick looked like inside so I did this with my 32mb stick.

    It also said samsung on the chip.
