    The highest cost effective Memory Stick duo is 4Gb

    This is probably the most cost effective Mem Stick Duo, it's a 2Gb SanDisk High speed from Scan.

    http://www.scan.co.uk/Products/Produ...oductID=243239

    The best price Anywhere for the high speed ultra version.

    If you were asking if you can put PSP games into a PS3 then you can't.
    And as for music/photos etc, its just a simple drag and drop system although you can get software if you wan't.

    Yeah, but you have to keep the firmware at 1.5 which means that you cant play the latest games. If you go on play.com or something then the games are a lot cheaper.

    No, you can surf in many places for free, but it is technically illeagal, and people get charged over it (well i man was for using a neighbours for ages and ages).

    PSP games come on Universal Media Disks (UMDs) as do The movies relseased for the PSP. These disks are like minidisks or floppy disks, but smaller, and with a the ability to store much more.

    The games are also only £30 online and are PS2 quality, so its worth it.

    The movies that come on UMDs cost about £15 and are just like watching a dvd!
    (there are loads available too!)

    If you have a good size memory stick then you can add movies to your PSP, however, sony, for some reson have made this slightly difficult, but it is made super simple by free software such as PSP video 9, which encodes the copys video to the psp perfectly (it is also compressed)

    Make sure that you format your memory card before your start using it so that it creates the correct folders on it, which you can then use to copy music and photos.

    You can download some games, but these are old games, (eg pac man) (not sure about proper PSP games) but these need to be run using an old version of the PSP firmware, which allows the home made applications.

    The stealing of other peoples internet

    You can walk into a shopping centre/mc donalds/hotel/bar and use their WiFi Hotspot but that will cost you - some of these (provided by BT Openzone) are free to Nintendo DS users but not PSP users. You cant go into a shopping centre and use random shops internet connections (unless they run a hotspot of course - like Starbucks) as that is illegal. Also banks would not have an open wifi network (if they would even run a wifi network at all!) it would be secured by a WPA key (WPA-Enterprise possibly?) which I dont *think* are crackable (someone can correct me on this, but if they are crackable, it would take AGES and I mean AGES)

    But it is easy to put photos and music on it, even though if they were not your own pictures or songs it would be illeagle, so NO.

    Most likely it is to make sure all video is properly encoded and shaped to work on the psp, as this is a mojor problem with other video players.

    It's most likely a combination of the fact it is illegal and Sony would rather you were buying UMD films than just putting ripped ones on your memory stick.
