    okay...

    I bought this 2 gb sony memory stick pro duo from a auction site, for the price of 62$ and I allrdy got a 1 gb sony meomry stick pro duo that came with the giga pack I bought in the store...

    After playing a little on my 2gb new stick, it seemed it was a lot slower when tranfering data to it, than the 1 gb stick I knew was original.

    So I took a stop watch and I timed the same 683 mb file on both sticks, when tranfering from my computer to the psp via usb:

    1gb stick time : 2:20
    2gb stick time : 6:22

    So is it fake the stick I bought, caus an original sony 2 gb memory stick pro duo cost the double new of what I bought mine for on that auction site!?!?!

    I would really like 2 know, so I can get my money back in time?

    Lionbar or goldbar???

    From what I read in a thread somewhere in here, the 4GB Memory Stick takes about ten minutes to upload an 880mb ISO. I wouldn't know because I haven't brought one (yet).

    Bigger the size of memory card, longer it will take.
    Probably because it has more sectors to scan.

    ^^Hmm, even if so (the size really shouldn't have much of an effect at all) I doubt it's the cause of it being almost 3 times slower.
    Was the 1GB stick also Sony? Try formatting both using FAT16 and see if it makes a difference... :/

    i had a sony 4gb stick, seriously took 15-20 minutes to put a 1 gig game on it. sold it on craigslist, bought a sandisk 4gb, which in turn takes about 1/3 of the time. aside from their consoles (which theyre not even that great at making), sony sucks at makin shit.

    ...still waiting for street sk8er to work for psx......

    YEP both of the sticks are exactly the same, supossdly =)

    I can't know for sure, ever, if the 2 gb stick I bought on that auction site is fake, how would I ever know for sure!?

    The man I bought it from claims its new and original, but I bought it for half the price it costs here in denmark new, so what does that tell me =)
