    ok,
    i know there's another thread about this, but i've seen the question asked many times in the last few hours, so here's what I know works. If someone else has tried something, post it up and i will make this list larger as it goes:

    Confirmed working hardware:
    - Creative MuVo MP3 player
    - Kingston Data Traveller USB Pen Drive
    - Sony Pocket Bit USB memory
    - Sony Micro Vault
    - SanDisk Cruzer Micro USB Flash Drive
    - Media Gear 7-in-1 USB 2.0 memory card reader w/ PQI 256mb Hi-Speed Compact Flash


    Unconfirmed working hardware:


    Incompatible hardware:
    - SanDisk Cruzer Mini USB Flash Drive
    - Datel Max Drive USB Memory Device
    - Sony Mouse with Memory Stick Reader/Writer MSAC-US5


    Additional info:
    Photos saved to Sony Memory Card is compressed down to approximately 100kb, resulting in minor artifacting when displayed on a computer monitor. Photos saved to USB storage is approximately 250-300kb.

  2. Can someone with an X-Port confirm that you can't save photos straight to the pc via the USB cable?

    I just got a MaxDrive. The drive that came with that will work, right?

    Mello, have you tried adjusting the quality settings in the options menu (regarding file sizes and artifacting)? That could be why the memory card pics have lower quality.

    I use something called "Mobile disk" , works as hell!
    The images are superb! I would have posted some, but I don`t know how.
    The images are between 200-300kb. And nice looking :bowdown:

    I sure as hell hope so, because that's what I have.. hehe. My PC recognizes it as a standard Flash drive, so hopefully GT4 will too. I hope someone can confirm it sometime.

    I don't think a usb cable would work, unless you had your computer emulate a USB flash drive into the USB port....

    compact flash shot:

    i'm not surprised the memory card shot is smaller/more compressed....limited space on the save card so i think it's the game just trying to save space

    Ok, but I am a complete fool with these things.
    I guess you guys have all the pictures you need, so it`s no big loss.

    ^ Good idea.
    I realy want to get a USB device now for GT4 photos and things, but like many others I'm sure, need to know what will work and what won't.

    Hopefully Sony will probably release a list at some point anyway
    :)

    Hate to break it to anybody with a MAX drive, but the 16MB pen drive did not work for me, got baout 30% through saving and bought up an error, however, anyone who owns a creative MUVO mp3 player can rest assured that this device WILL work for savig GT4 pictures.

    That's unfortunate.

    But with any luck it could be a formatting problem rather than hardware. I'll try a couple different reformats of the stick when I get the game and see if it works.

    Yep thats also what i was thinking.

    Sony will and cannot post a list with all the hardware compatible with GT4.
    They will only make a list with Epson printers and maybe other Sony devices.

    SO MODS PLEASE MAKE THIS A STICKY THREAD! :tup:
