How to Save on a PSP Without a Memory Stick Duo

by Bryan RobertsUpdated September 22, 2017

The Sony PlayStation Portable (PSP) comes in several different versions. While many of these versions require a Memory Stick PRO Duo in order to store game save data, one version of the PSP, known as the "PSP Go," makes use of an internal hard drive. If you have a PSP Go, saving your games without a memory stick is a relatively simple procedure. If you do not have a PSP Go, you will need some extra equipment in order to properly mimic the Memory Stick DUO.

PSP Go Method

Turn your PSP Go on. Select the "Games" option in your PSP Go's main menu.

Select the game you wish to play with the "X" button and begin playing.

Save the game in accordance with your game's saving procedures when you are ready. These procedures will vary depending on the game being played.

Select the "Hard Drive" option when you are prompted to select a device for your game save file. The file will save to your hard drive, rather than a memory stick.

Original PSP and PSP "Slim & Lite" Method

Insert a MicroSD card into a Memory Stick DUO adapter. Insert this adapter into the memory stick slot on the left side of your PSP.

Turn your PSP on. Select the "Games" option in your PSP's main menu.

Select the game you wish to play with the "X" button and begin playing.

Save the game in accordance with your game's saving procedures when you are ready. These procedures will vary depending on the game being played. Instead of a Memory Stick DUO, the file will be placed on the MicroSD card in your Memory Stick adapter.
