    well i bought my psp from a shop ages ago and they said it was "hacked", all it was (this was when psp first came out) was dev-hook and some games,
    allright i got a memory card which looks pretty real and checked everything, it looks real. then i checked informationa and it said magic gate unknown, thing is i tried this with other peoples cards and they also said magic gate unknown, havent got any other psps to check with though,
    thanks

    Try reinserting the MS. If you have to force it in, it's fake. Also, you can just put custom firmware and it should fix that.

    Try upgrading to 3.52 M33, and try it again.

    In the meanwhile, backup data on your MS, and grab the UPMS Installer. Launch it from your PSP, and write Booster's IPL. (Step 1 > Option 2 and 3). When done, exit. If the PSP complains that your MS is unreadable, your MS is really fake.

    if it says magic gate unknown it is fake

    (also if you open it up there wont be a chip in it - like the real ones have - (mind you i would not go opening up cards)

    i tried many a card and the genuine ones do say - magic gate supported ,

    here is a good page on how to tell

    down to 1.50 via old skool method - GTA - when that was the only way you could do it (was hooked ;-)

    i dunno! it fails to recognise my original magic gate! But i've never really had to bother abt it yet... it gives me no problems so though I'm vary abt it, I let it do its job!

    Joe88 exactly my point don't understand how the PSP can be fake?!?!

    Rainbow do this format your memory stick via your laptop/pc and make it FAT then once formatted from your PC format on your PSP.
