The new memory card for PlayStation 2 has a storage capacity of 8 MB and a data transfer of up to 250 times faster than the PlayStation memory card.

The pic is devieving, as it shows two black memory cards. What actually was recieved is 1 transparent red and 1 transparent blue - which are still official products and look cool.
I now am on my fifth memory card, as it seems the Hard Disk Drive won't be coming to the UK anytime soon.
Well recommended buy!
Top tip 1: Fed up changing memory cards just to check whats on them? Put upto 5 in your ps2 using a multitap! (or 8 with two!)
Top tip 2: If you buy this product, pull the inlay card out. You'll find some tidy - looking stickers/labels to help identify which card is which (I didn't see them the first time I bought this pack - and didn't need them as one card was black one blue and one red)
Just a pity the Ps2 doesn't really make much use of memory card slots other than the 1st when loading and saving.
If you even want to consider being a serious gamer - you have to get some memory to store your saved games, and even take them with you if you go to a friends house!
The cards look great - one blue and one red. If you fill up one - just use the other, or if you're feeling kind - give it to your bro. or sis. (and steal it back off them when you need the extra memory!)
Unfortunately it didn't. The same problem with the 128mb card, is present with the 8mb card(s), leaving me with just an old 1mb card for game saving.
However, being the inquisitive type I decided to investigate further...
If you are playing a game on your PS2 that was an original PS1 game then the PS1 game does not recognise a memory card of 8mb or greater capacity. It probably has something to do with available (or expected) memory address locations of the original PS1. There are no such problems with original PS2 games. For example, Tomb Raider II (original PS1 game) will not recognise an 8 mb or greater, card but Tomb Raider Angel of Darkness (original PS2 game) does recognise 8mb/128mb cards.
So, for PS1 games use a 1mb card only. For PS2 games any size card should work ok, at least 8mb/128mb cards work for me.
Lots of space for saved games and config etc at a couple of quid more than 8mb in the shops.
