    Why are 8GB ms bad? I run 3.71 m33-4 on a slim and I only run ISOs, PS1 EBOOTs, and a few emulators. I'm thinking about getting an 8gb ms but I wanna know if it will work ok. Also anyone who has one where did you buy yours? I checked out my local Best Buy, Circuit City and a few Gamestops in my area but none of them have any... still got a few more places to check but I will probably have to order of the webernet.... bummer. Anyways thanks in advance!

    Some say there's problem with running homebrew, and some aspects of CFW. Some say it works, and some say that it doesn't. However, it doesn't hurt to try. If it works, you have 8 gigs of gaming goodness.

    This is what the Offical Sony Memory Stick Looks Like:



    If you notice on left it says that the 8GB is compatable for PSP use, so I would see no reason why it would not work. I suggest to try eBay as this was the cheapest I found them:

    But don't always trust eBay... some cards can be fake.

    yeah, Ebay is full of fakes. beware of that site.
    i heard that 8GB mem sticks can't run homebrew. But if you just want to put iso's on it then your fine i think.

    Even though it is full of fakes, my 2GB one works fine... although I am going to Hong Kong... maybe I should pick up an 8GB there (where eBay ships them from anyway lol)

    I just recently bought 2 8gb cards at circuit city, and they run homebrew and 3.71 CF just fine.

    That would be a good idea - you are more likely to get a genuine MemoryStick in Hong Kong, than you are to get a genuine one off eBay.
