My PSP uses RAID!

post #1 of 10
Thread Starter 
That's right folks, my playstation portable uses RAID. It's got one of these
A Photofast Cr-5400 adapter.




It takes two microsd cards, and combines them into one large Memory Stick Pro Duo. When plugged into any device, it appears as one large card. Ater a format, if one of the microsd's are removed , the whole filesystem becomes corrupted (because half the flies are on one card!) I am using 2 16gb microsd cards, which total up to 32gb

I'ts been running for about 1.5 years without a single hiccup

EDIT: As this turns out, it is not raid, but is still a great storage solution

As two drives just showing up as logically 1.

Raid 0 = Two drives splitting the data to boost write/read speeds (there's nothing on that card splitting data, it likely just fills up one card then the next)

Raid 1 = Redundancy, drives have the same data (2 16gb chips = 16gb still but if you remove one it would work still)

Raid 5 = Can't be done with 2 disks.

would be cool if they implemented raid 0 =)

This card (i believe) oes the first one you described- half on one half on the other. If i remove one memory card from it after its formatted, all data is corrupted or doesnt appear

While it may not technically be RAID 0 it acts the same way.
