I spent 15 minutes putting mine back in the horrible box yesterday. I'll probably mess around with it again whenever they have something other than retroarch to play old games on the thing.

How did you get to 90 games? Reports on reddit say the PSC will power shutdown randomly on you if you have more than 80 games. Also What brand and size stick are you using? I'm using a 32gb Sandisk Ultra Fit 2.0 at the moment and works great on it so far.
I bought these;

Having the stick in the USB hub that's connected to controller port 1 on the classic. One 8bitdo to controller port 2 and the other to the hub. It's finicky sometimes though, usually works best if 8bitdo to controller port 2 is connected after the first controller connects.

I'm guessing the random shutdowns comes from the psc not having the power to read the memory stick. Using a powered hub, like I do, probably is why mine works without problems.

It works great with retroarch though, you can even use the original game choosing menue so you basically never know you're using retroarch.

I absolutely hate retroarch, plus I keep getting black screens while using it with every USB drive that I own.

What if one were to use a micro sd card instead of a stick???
