Not compatible with new game

We bought a new San Andres trilogy pack today because my old game was broken! I had the game saved on my memory card and it says that the memory card is not compatible with the new game! Can you not use new games with old games saved on a memory card.

What does a memory card do


There are two types of "memory cards" related to the Wii. GameCube memory cards are used to store saved games when playing GameCube games in the Wii's compatibility mode. SD cards are used primarily for backing up channels, save games, and WiiWare titles from internal memory. It can also be used for storing images to be viewed in the Photo channel, and for homebrew games (not officially supported).

I loaned out my copy of NFS:MW and it got trashed. I bought a new copy and it won't let me load my saved games. I checked and both discs are same version. I also checked the memory card, which has saves...


I owned that game a few years back, so much fun.
I had a similar problem. I had to get a new copy of it because I lost my old one. Well when I put it in it wouldn't let me load my old profile, so I took out the memory card, took out the game disc, turned off the PS2. Turned the PS2 back on and let it sit without anything in it for a little while, then I put the memory card back in a different slot, checked to see that my saved games from NFS:MW were still there, and then I put the disc in and it loaded my profile.
This worked for me, but it may be that the serial brands on the two discs are different. Since the release of the PS3, PS2 discs have been made with a back tracking element to allow it to be played on all sony systems in the future. So it may be that your old disc was pre-backtracking and your new disc or post-backtracking. If that is the case, i'd say go to your nearest gaming shop and let them come up with a solution. It's better to get hands on help with stuff like that.

Bought used PSP and does not read games...also it came w/out memory card - if we add one will it work..? (My 11 year old doesn't know)


If it can't read the disks and it's second-hand it's most likely the laser head has gone in it.If you bought it from a shop on the street take it back and try to get a refund.And no, the memory card isn't needed to play most games,it's best if you have one otherwise you lose your progress when you quit the game,all the memory card is for is to store music,photos,videos,and game save data.

Orignial xbox games dont work on xbox 360

Try clearing any unnecessary space on your memory card. Or you can buy another memory card and transfer your old saved files into your new one.

Ps2 memory card wont work


check the back of the game cover to see how many blocks it will use to save the game data. Your memory card may not be big enough. You may need to buy a bigger memory card to save the data.

Ps2 memory card


First of all, make sure the card is in slot one. I'm not sure about Guitar Hero 3, but I know many games default to searching the first slot (the one on your left as you look at the system).

Assuming that's not the problem, it could be a sign that your memory card is wearing out. Do you have a second memory card? If not, I suggest getting one. Either way, put one card in each slot, and go into the browser. Copy the Guitar Hero saves over to the other card, then put that card in slot 1 and see if it works. If it does, I suggest copying all your saved games over to the new card, and throwing the old one out before you lose any save games permanently.

Problem with my PS2 memory card


sound like too many saved files ..open the card (no game in console) look at the saved files if its full delete something if there is a corrupt file.. here is a foot note copyright seca.sony.

1 If the controller or memory card you are using is neither made nor licensed by Sony Computer Entertainment America, Inc. (SCEA) for use on the PlayStation 2 console, we would recommend you do not use that product. It has not been tested to perform properly for use on the PlayStation 2 console and, accordingly, SCEA does not recommend its use. Products that fail to meet or exceed SCEA's strict quality standards can cause damage to your PlayStation 2 console immediately or with prolonged use. SCEA is not responsible for damages caused by untested, unlicensed products, and any otherwise applicablewarranties on SCEA products are void. It is the responsibility of the particular company that made the unlicensed peripheral to accommodate you, should its product cause damage to an SCEA product.

i only post that because the user guide has been misplaced by the user
