via www.pspfanboy.com psp ownershere are tons of fake Memory Sticks out there, and while some of them do work, many feature less than reliable performance. mavy, a programmer from PSX Reality, has come up with a comprehensive, homebrew method to check if your flash card is a fake. The test won't be fast, and it will involve doing a reformat of the disk, but it does appear to be quite comprehensive.
However, I've also heard that there's a poor man's way of checking for the real deal. Go to the PSP's XMB, and have "Memory Stick" highlighted as one of your options. Hit Triangle and then "Information." If MagicGate, Sony's proprietary copy-protection scheme isn't supported, chances are high that you have a fake.

Mine's genuine, but I've owned 2 counterfeit cards in the past. The first worked fine, but the second would frequently corrupt data, and any firmware updates that I saved to the card would fail to install.
There's also some good information in the link below regarding spotting a fake, based on the physical memory card and packaging etc :
