wait does this fix the prob. with any of the memory cards
i have 2 gig and i have 600mb left and it wont let me download the socom tatical strike demo witch is less than 500mb

yeah i had 350mb left on my 4 gb and it said there wasn't enough room for beats which is like 250mb.

You need 2x the space: for download and installation. At least that's how it works on PS3.

I was even getting that same error on my 1gb memory stick even though I easily had enough memory. I got around the error by downloading to my ps3 first.

I been getting weird errors like this too sometimes too. Sony just can seem to come out with a update without having to come out with another about less than a week later.

I have a 1GB stick with 850MB of space left on there and I can't download Jeane d'arc which is only 670 (or something close)
Is it possible to download the file to PC first and transfer to the PSP?
If not I hope this patch fixes this problem.

The PSP never read my 8gig card for anything but music and video's the only time i saw a firmware read it for games and saves and theams was 3.71 m33-1 (and -2 and -3) and i couldn't get the plug in to work for the 8 gig support so guess what firmware my PSP slim is running

Weird--I haven't had any problems with my shiny new 8GB stick. Clearly, I haven't been downloading enough.

Those of you having issues with the downloading...
You need DOUBLE the free space as compared to the DL size...
You have to DOWNLOAD it...then you need the space to actually INSTALL it...after installation the DL file is erased.
So...to DL Jeane D'Arc you NEED a 2GB stick (as an example).
At least...this makes 'sense' to me.

Thats how I understood it too. It worked once I roughly doubled the amount of space needed for the file.

The easiest way to get around this is to buy the games though the PS3 Store, install them to your PS3, and then just copy them over.
If you don't have a PS3, then you can ignore this message.

a 16 gig card? damn, thats alot of memory. Anyone notice the hidden features of 5.00 not mentioned here?
10-22-2008 @ 5:22AM
huh... I have a 16gb memory card for my 2000 model psp and I haven't had a single problem downloading stuff. I do have like 10gb left though. Maybe it only affects you if you're below a certain point of memory.

Firmware 5.01 is now available
10-22-2008 @ 9:56AM
what's the link? I checked Sony's website and they still have 5.00 posted.
10-22-2008 @ 1:23PM
Yep, I went to update to v5.0 since it has the store and I was never able to get it to connect via my computer and it downloaded v5.01
10-22-2008 @ 9:22AM
I recently purchased a 8GB stick and used the store yesterday without problems, and btw, the store seems to load quicker than surfing with my pc so..why not to add other features or functions instead of a "fix" for something that seems is not broken.
10-22-2008 @ 9:39AM
Yup I was able to grab 5.01 last night =)
