PSP memory card

If your PSP can't read memory card follow this PSP tutorial

Loaded it correctly,if the amber flash light flashes that means that you haven't loaded the memory stick corectly.Take off your memory stick and insert it again correctly according to the manual if the problem persists then format the card(formatting prepares cards to receive data). Non-sony cards or cards formatted on a computer must be formatted with the Sony PSP before they can be used. All data stored on the card,is erased when the card is formatted so when formatting a used card,confirm there are no files that you still want to keep on the card.You must back up those files before you format you memory stick.

Check if your memory is working on another PSP, card reader or any other device that can read it. If the memory card is working then try to blow in the PSP card slot to remove dust or dirt.If you still have a problem insert a different card in the PSP slot (a cheap 32mb memory stick duo can do the work) to detect if there is a problem with your PSP card slot.
