PSP 4GB HDD + 2xBattery charge THATS RIGHT!



Ok now at first I got excited last night because I thought I found a 4GB HDD + 2xcharger in one unit but no its a seperate peice but you can buy them together for 199US(for reference 2GB memory sticks go for about 120US-199US alone).


this is the HDD and...


thats what it looks like with both



Now it does make the unit thicker so you have to be careful if your case doesn't leave room for this but MAN this is sweet! 4GB + my 1GB stick I already have with a 2x battery makes this a truely portable machine. I can have my music on the stick and have my movies/tv shows on the HDD. with 10-14 hour battery life, you can't go wrong.

Pretty sure you won't be able to use your 1GB stick, I'm pretty sure the hard drive uses a little adapter to fit into the memory stick slot, thats what the thing sticking out of the right side of the psp in those pictures is. I would look into one of these things but I just bought Liberty City Stories and that requires 2.0 firmware so no more bootlegs unless I downgrade.

yes but the adapter(yes it uses one) is a simple remove and add my stick...takes 5 seconds and can be done with the machine on.

oh and you can get around the firmware 2.0 requirement of new games...i can confirm it works with my Kingdom of Paradise UMD.

Re: PSP 4GB HDD + 2xBattery charge THATS RIGHT!

i have recently done a downgrade to 1.5(easily reversable to 2.0 at any time and re-flashed to 1.5 within minutes) so that I could play around with the homebrew apps(emu's and such). I will admit that I DL Need for Speed:Most Wanted to test the ability to run the game off the memory stick(yes its possible) but deleted the game for a few reasons, one of which was I didn't like it. Since you can't demo PSP games I feel this is just fine. I hate that you can't return them after opening and although blockbuster does offer to rent them out, its cheaper to do so this way.

Now the other thing though is that I COULD take a game that I do own and removing the music from the game insert my own , which is a possibility. Its funny that they use a 1.8GB disc but fill it with garbage data when the games are really tiny .

There are programs out there for quite a few things but the thing that annoys me about 1.5 compared to 2.0 is the AVC file format not being supported so my vid files have to be 30% larger to view them. but like I said I can switch to 2.0 to watch them and switch back to run hoomebrew.

well just dont brick you PSP up. All those crazy kids and the downgrading/upgrading seems to kill the PSP.

Re: PSP 4GB HDD + 2xBattery charge THATS RIGHT!

believe me i was worried as hell, mostly when you change to 1.5 from 2.0, right at 99% it says it could not complete the install - yikes...but upon restarting the device, it loads up and according to system info is showing 1.5(and of course must have been to load all the homebrews).
