New PS1 memory card (OEM) won't work in slim PS2

I bought a PS1 card to save PS1 game data on my PS2. When it comes to save it keeps asking me if I want to save, I click yes and it asks me again. Occasionally it will tell me the card is not formatted and asks me if I want to format it, I say yes and it repeats the whole thing again. Can anyone help?

    I've been told the opposite. This is the reason I bought a PS1 card. Looking at other forums a lot of people seem to be experiencing similar problems. I know that with another PS1 game, when I tried to save it to my PS2 card it told me I needed a PS1 card??

I have a silver slim ps2 model number SCPH-77001. Everytime I play a ps1 game on it (which it has no problems with) it wont read my ps1 memory card. I've tried it on both slots, tried 4-5 other ps1...


You shouldnt have too. I think I know the problem. Turn on your ps2 without a game in it and it would take you to the home screen. After that go to browser with your ps1 memory card and select it. And then it should give you an option to format it. Hope this helps

My ps2 slim memory cards work on the main screen, but i'm trying to play a ps1 game and as i try to save the game, it says that there is no memory card present. I bought another card with more memory.....


You can't save PS1 games on a PS2 memory card. You need to buy a PS1 memory card to save PS1 games. The PS1 card will plug into the standard memory slot on a PS2, but the insides are different.

First, I have to admit I have no idea about PS2. My relative moved, and gave his old PS2, memory card and pacman game to my 5 year old. We deleted all old files that were there so there should be enough...


Well, first you should find out if the PacMan game is for PS1 or PS2. If it is for PS1, you need a PS1 memory card, which is sold separately and different from a PS2 memory card. If the game is for the PS2, it should automatically save your data, and if it doesn't, call Sony to ask for some troubleshooting tips.

Final Fantasy PS2 problem, "failed to check memory card"


Im going to ask you the simplest of all questions, if you can't answer it then step away from the Playstation! Is it a PS1 or PS2 Memory card?

There is no reason why it won't work if it is a PS1 memory card unless the card itself is corrupt somehow

If it is a PS2 memory card use a PS1 card. FFVIII is a PS1 game. Therefore needs a PS1 card

Memory card


You can use it to save Ps1 games only if im not mistaken. The ps2 games themselves won't recognize the memory card.

Hope this helps.

Playstation card


Your question is somewhat confusing, using a playstation 2 memory card, will have PS2 game saves on it, how would you play PS2 games on a PS1 from the save, you can't. If you just mean you are using a PS2 card for a PS1, the way a PS2 card saves data is different to a PS1 card, so it probably won't work You can use your PS1 memory cards in the PS2. You can only use the PS1 memory cards to save PS1 games that you are playing in your PS2. You can't save any PS2 game data to a PS1 memory card
