I have bought an official Sony memory stick pro duo mark 2 for my PSP 3003 and tried to format it but the message I get is:- Format Failed (80220089)

 

Any Ideas what the code number is?

Yep, it means that the card is corrupted. However, there is another possibility, do you trust the supplier of the card? If it's a fake then the same code will be presented. You could put the card in to a PC and format it to FAT 16 and see if it will work afterwards.

the error code is infact a corrupted memory card error. it seems strange that the error message is happening on a new card so the best thing to do is find out if the card is a fake or not by checking the status of the MagicGate. if it says MagicGate supported its a genuine card and just needs formatting via the PC first. if it says MagicGate unknown or unsupported then its a fake and needs sending back to the seller/retailer.
