How to Add Memory to a PSPgo

The PSPgo comes with 16GB of built-in flash memory, which can hold roughly 18 games. However, you can add memory to a PSPgo by adding a Memory Stick Micro M2. Memory stick micros are available in sizes ranging from 128MB all the way up to 16GB. All that extra memory will come in handy if you want to use your PSPgo as a media player, as well as a gaming device.

  1. Turn off the PSPgo and open the memory stick slot cover on the left edge of the PSPgo.

    It might take a bit of work the first time you open the little slot.

  2. With the memory stick’s label facing the top of the PSPgo, gently slide the stick into place. Close the slot cover.

    Take your time; these little memory sticks can break if they are forced.

  3. Turn on the PSPgo. Go the Settings option on the XMB. Select System Settings and Press the X button.

    Before you use the Memory Stick Micro, you need to format it for the PSPgo.

  4. Go to Format Memory Stick and press the X button.

    You’ll see a prompt asking you to confirm that you want to format the memory stick.

    Formatting will erase any data that is currently on the memory stick. If you have any doubts, be sure to back up your files before you proceed.

  5. Select Yes and press the X button.

    The PSPgo will warn you again about the dangers of formatting the memory stick.

  6. Select Yes and press the X button.

    When the PSPgo is finished formatting, the micro will hold the PSPgo’s folder system. If you place files in the wrong folder or not in a folder at all the PSPgo will not be able to recognize them.

    If the Memory Stick Micro (M2) access indicator light is on, do not remove the Memory Stick Micro. Be sure that the system is either off or in sleep mode. Removing the memory stick while the light is on can cause data to be lost or corrupted.
