I got my PSVita a day early and everything was working fine until I started getting error codes when trying to launch games and downloads. I tried formatting the memory card and resetting the PSVita system but that didn't help.
Now the card isn't being read at all. Has anyone else experienced this problem? The advice on the help page is pretty useless and just recommends sending in the Vita for a service >_>.
Solved! Go to solution
Done this times about 10 times...you sir are hilarious >_>
I wasn't doing an IT Crowd :D that was genuinely my suggestion.
Tried that too mate, about 3 times.
It corrected it last night when I tried but then it soon messed up again. I think it's almost definitely the memory card being a faulty one. That would explain the sporadic behaviour and randomness of the whole situation. It doesn't detect it as being inserted which is another reason that points to it being faulty.
I launch Rayman...'this game requires a vita memory card, please insert one' ..... (it's already in haha but meh!)
Oh well requesting a replacement memory card so we'll wait and see. I'll comment back if / when I solve the problem / frisbee my Vita off my balcony.
Hold the ps button down for 30 seconds and the vita will go into it's recovery menu. Select the option the reset to default and try again. Hope this helps.
To run the recovery menu you have to hold down the right button & the ps button & keep them held while you turn the vita on.
As was mentioned once above, it the VITA fails to detect the memory card, turn the system off, remove the card, replace the card and turn the system back on. It should then begin to "rebuild the PS Vita database" which will take upto a minute or so. If this doesnt happen, turn off and try again.
If this doesn't work after a few attempts, you can try holding the PS button for 30 seconds and performing a forced restart.
You can also get to the PS VITA recovery menu. When the VITA is turned off, press the PS button, Power button and Right Shoulder button at the same time and hold for a few seconds. A menu will appear.
Try Restarting the PS Vits System first. If this doesn't automatically fix the problem then enter the menu again and select "Rebuild Database". Failing that you could try to restore the PS Vita System (which may allow it to read the memory card if it was the Vita at fault) or Format the Memory Card - but if the memory card is still not being detected at all it won't be able to be formatted. Also, this will obviously WIPE ALL DATA that may still be stored safely away on the memory card, so it's a last resort.
it doesnt work for me.mine is a 16gb and suddenly it showed me all the steps to do when i first bought it,i compleed it and it told me ''memory card ot inserted'' seriously im fed up of this
I got mine to work. I'll tell you step by step.------
1) Make sure the Vita is completely turn off.
2) Take out the memory card, if you haven't done so already.
3) Push the memory card back in all the way in and don't let go of it.
4) turn the Vita on.
5)A screen should pop up saying "updating database"after the warning screen and just wait until its done.
6) Once its done updating, let go of the memory card.
*****Try downloading something if it's a new memory card so that you know it works
*****Also you can do it on the home page screen. Just reinsert the memory card and hold it and press yes to restart and then you should just follow step 5 and 6.
*****You will have to do this every time you switch to this memory card if the Vita didn't detect it.
If it doesn't work just repeat the steps.
I hope it works for you.
I'm glad this has worked, however this does sound like a strange one and may indicate an issue with the spring mount in the memory slot. However it could me that the memory card was not correctly clicked into place, and this ensures it is.
Generally clicking it into place should be enough rather than physically holding it, and if it doesnt work it may well be a fault.
If any issues persist let me know,
I very much thank you, i was scared when i saw all my stuff gone, called playstation and the customer support didnt even give me this help,they just said we dont know maybe my card was damaged. Sony should hire you. Still not sure what exactly made all this happen.
