    Default CR-3100 / CR-5400 Compatibility & Speed Tests

    The pupose of this thread is to create a database of speed tests for the
    cr-3100 and cr-5400 micro stick to pro duo adapters

    CR-3100: (clips onto back of umd drive)


    CR-5400: (fits in memory stick slot)


    first i'd like to thank:
    Melan, The_Android, KoukiMonster, TheB1Dude & Blood_breaker
    for their hard work in testing these adapters


    The Method for Testing:
    - Download BlackSpeed v.2
    - Install it onto your PSP
    - Run BlackSpeed
    - It will save results automatically if you have a "PICTURE" folder at the root of your stick
    - Post photo to your favorite image hosting site
    - Post a link to your photo in this thread along with your:
    ---------> PSP type (phat=1000, slim=2000, or brite=3000)
    ---------> Micro sd type (sd or sdhc)
    ---------> Micro sd size(s) (ie: 2gb + 8gb)
    ---------> Micro sd Manufacturer (sandisk, adata, lexar, etc.)
    ---------> Speed Class (if you dont know for sure, dont bother trying to guess)
    ---------> Speed up Memory Stick Access (if using 5.00m33-6, please mention if this feature is on or off during your test)

    alright speed testers, we have a new champ "16gb PQI SDHC x2 in CR-3100 on a PHAT" racking in at a whopping 407, the lowest is still "8gb Sandisk MicroSDHC x 2 in cr-5400 on a PSP Slim" with 299.
    But remeber thats still 299% better than an Official Sony 32mb!!

    This looks like a nice idea...
    You may want to explain how to test for the noobs and people that generally don't know how... Also, the actual memory stick/microSDHC matters too..
    I'll test either two 8GB, two 16GB or one 16GB and one 8GB in a 3100 whenever I get either of those choices..

    Here are my individual tests.

    2gb micro sd adata: http://img230.imageshack.us/img230/3811/adatavr7.png

    1gb micro sd sandisk: http://img514.imageshack.us/img514/9473/sandisktr7.png

    Also, I have a PSP Slim. I'm a bit surprised the adata performed better than the sandisk. I ordered 2 8gb adata micro sdhc class 6 cards today. I'll redo the tests when I receive them in a couple days.

    from the limited results so far:

    it seems that when two mismatching cards are inserted the slower read/write speed will prevail

    thanks to melan for the testing

    EDIT:

    This is my personal reveiw on the set up i got.

    i purchased the cr-5400 (the one that goes inside the psp) and first off it doesn't click in to the memory stick reader perfectlly, and because of that it can be difficult to get back out again, other than that it worked as advertised.

    i used this "no name micro" card on a phat, it claims to be class 6


    everything worked perfect (including games, emulators and iso's) i wouldn't try to pandora it or anything, its not magicgate supported.

    although i did notice two other things i didnt like, it seemed like the xmb takes an extra second or two to load when the "no name micro" card is inserted, even with the xmb clock set to 333, and sometimes after a cold boot the xmb will not load unless i remove the memory stick during boot. this always happens after the psp freezes.

    so in other words, if my psp freezes (like when you try to play certain videos in psptube) then i must remove the cr-5400 in order to boot again, once booted i then usually need to insert and remove it 2-3 times before it is displayed in the xmb again.

    im pretty sure that we (as a community) could come up with an ipl that would remedy this problem because im reasonably sure that the ipl is causing any load errors

    speed test results,


    ==============================EDIT 2======================================

    this my new re-review of my cr-5400:

    originally i said that the cr-5400 didnt fit perfectly and that i had trouble ejecting it, but after for use it has begun to perform exactly as it should, i guess i had to just break it in.

    also i got the boot up errors worked out, it turned out to be a flash 0 problem not a memory stick problem

    Comments: the type of adapter doesn't make a lot of difference, and using a single card or two cards doesn't either...

    just a really off the wall question for android:

    does the cr-3100 recoginize the cr-5400 w/ 2 x 8gb inserted?

    no as the cr-5400 is a memory stick and the cr-3100 is a dual sd card converter
