    could be a low level format and changing the sector size or something along them lines (but you still end up with the same size i think) but that's for hd i never known of someone doing it for ms but never know

    He could have taken the 8 gig memory card, taken it apart and switch it with the 4gig and returned it, so he got an 8gig for 4gig price. Since all memory stick pro duos are the same size, that is possible.

    I don't see that possible with memory when flash memory can only allocate the given amount when made. Even setting it to a different cycle would only increase its overhead by a tiny amount on a different file system.

    the 256 to 512mb ram hack also is impossible because the ram stick's ram boards only equal to 256mbits and no higher.

    He could be doing some kind of dummy/oc *oc a memory? lawl? can't believe i said it*

    Can your friend double his monitor size, too? Now that'd be something.

    Sounds like this isn't so much a problem of your friend being good with computers, just you're not (sorry). Unless it physically started as a 8GB card and was dropped to a 4GB card by some hardware/firmware limitation it's not possible.

    lmao.....

    This thread makes no sense. You can't double the amount of space on your memory stick.

    The only way to geet more RAM is to buy a new stick, you can't 'Hack it' to make it have more space. And you can't double your memory sticks space, they can only physically hold so much data.
