Has anyone ever found out why these pieces of shit have such a high failure rate? What exactly makes them fail?

Has anyone ever found out why these pieces of shit have such a high failure rate? What exactly makes them fail? Is it something physical in the card or is it software?

    SSDs have one inherent flaw: you can only write to them a certain number of times and then they're trash. Higher capacity SSDs mitigate this problem. Thus the 64GB card is going to typically have an exponebtially longer life than the 8GB one.

    Save yourself the headaches and get a steam deck like everybody else. Then you can just swap out the SSD for 1TB or more and never have to worry about dead storage for another decade or so.

        Lookup SSD write amplification.

          Look up flash memory, and then look up SSDs, and then tell us you really believe they're the same thing. So we can laugh at you.

      I had the 8gb card and it failed after not playing my vita in a year. That explains a lot.

    probably used low quality NAND chips. You remember how much they were charging for these shitty things? This was where they subsidized the cost of the PS Vista.

    They were expensive, like 3x the price of micro SD at same capacity in 2014 so people bought lower capacities card (<8GB) and use 95% of disk space.
    My 10 yo 16 GB card disappeared sometimes these last days, but cleaning contacts seems to solve this issue

        You can put one in the game card slot and one in the mPCIe slot if you have a 3G model

      make sure you never format them, it's just anecdotal evidence but mine died right after I formatted it.

        Shit, maybe I should back them all up as well.
        I have a 3G 1100 model so the internal SD mod looks cool.

      At this point everyone agrees that the proprietary memory cards were a mistake. Even Sony would agree, because they put money into developing them while it was one of the factors that lead to dissatisfaction from consumers.
      Greater sales of consoles and games would have made them more money than sales of the memory cards and may have prolonged the life of the system.

          Yes. It wasn't Sony's first proprietary format that lived in one device and then became an abandoned format.
