Although the PS3 is becoming popular, many of us decided to stay with the PS2. There are more games, cheaper products, and more buying opportunities. Hey, you can even download PS2 games on the Internet. Of course, these games will get a lot of use (because they are awesome!) And finally, you want to know how to fix scratched PS2 games. This article will help you.

Is it merely scratched or dirty?

Sometimes the problem is not our game from scratch. Seriously, read a lot of PS2 games down scratches, but it is really a problem, is covered with gook. Try cleaning the disc before trying to set up out of nowhere (or maybe to work evil that is needed).

It is scratched! How can you solve this problem?

It's actually really easy to fix scratched PS2 games. This is what you need.

Baking Soda Toothpaste

lint-free cloth (eyeglasses cloth is perfect)

Before you begin, you should know that this is not a good idea to erase your hard disk in circles. Unlike the old records (which had to follow the path), PS2 should rub right center to outer edge. Cleaning does more harm circles and want to avoid that.

5 easy steps to fix scratched PS2 games

Put a little 'slide of warm water.

apply a little toothpaste on your rag

RUB (as shown) at the height of the area and around it. If you have lots of scratches, so do the whole disk. 10-15 slides from the inside to the outside should do the trick.

rinse the toothpaste

let the disc dry air

See? It is not difficult to fix scratches on ps2 at all. There is a problem with this method, however, you can do it too often. Know that you are cutting down on the plastic surface to crack some PS2 feel low. If you do it too often, so you do not have a plastic bumper on the left and the data layer of aluminum foil to be destroyed. Serious problems (or repeated injury), the best thing is to go back to the plate.

keep getting dropped from ea servers


Well depends on what games your playing you should upgrade to a PS3 or a Xbox 360 but PS3 is a cheaper buy, trust me you pay alot more for a Xbox then a PS3. Many reasons why your getting dropped your internet connection for your PS2 may not be good, EA servers for PS2s generally dont use many resources so it could be just the Servers. EA likes to focus on Computer games and other systems PS2 is dead now. You should upgrade.

can you play PS2 games on a PS3?


If you bought the original PS3 when it first came out and purchased the expensive one with the larger hard drive, it will be able to play *some* PS2 games. If you bought the cheaper one with the smaller hard drive or purchased your PS3 once the prices started dropping, it will have no capabilities of playing PS2 games, as Sony has decided to not continue making the system semi-backwards-compatible.

ps3 control


there are several ps2 to usb adapters out there, many made expressly for connecting the dual shock 2 to the ps3. they cost anywhere from around $5 to $20. i have one myself and it works very well.

Amazon.com has several listed - or you can search anywhere for 'ps2 to usb' or 'ps2 to ps3' and you should find something that will work - although as always read the reviews on the product first.

ps3 updates causing disk error


poppin it into another machine will do nothing. its the drive thats bad, not the machine.
U can buy another drive if u wish as they are not that expensive and worth it and u will still play ps2 games on it as the HD has nothing to do with backwards compatibilty.

u can buy a 160 gig drive for around $100 sometimes less and in ur ps3 manual it tells u how to replace it.
