    Why would you format you ms with vista, then you will just have to reformat it with your PSP, I don't understand, help me understand.

    so basically the memory stick is working im just trying to stop the lagging problems that 4gb and 8gb memory sticks usually have using the "format x: /fs:FAT" method in the cmd and once it reaches 100% I get this error "The volume is too big for FAT16/12."

    of course its too big if you're formatting it as FAT16. Format it as fat32.
