Sounds like you need to get your money back ..the resurfaceing can also do more bad than good
But a little trick lightly rub a crayon over the disk ,,old pantyhose works great rub it off from center out then try your disk ,,have saved many good games that way

My Spyro the Dragon game will not play. It gets to the Playstation logo and freezes. I just had it resurfaced so it's not scratched. It is a Playstation 2 and plays all other games.


The best thing I could offer as advice is to cover the bottom of the disc with toothpaste, the toothpaste acts as a resurfacing agent and helps get rid of scratches, obviously clean the toothpaste off throughly before inserting the disc into the Playstation 2 disc tray.

Getting a disc error when turning on the ps2 with ps2 games, but it works with ps1 games...!


Theres a wheel in the disc drive that controls the elevation of the lens. To mod your ps2 to read burnt ps2 games ONE would alter the height of the lens by adjusting the wheel ever so slightly. There are online tutorials in the precise adjustments for different disks. (one height reads only ps1 games, another height reads ps1 and ps2 games, and one more height reads ps1/ps2 and burnt ps1/ps2 games) Your best bet would probably be to just purchase another ps2 used, but if you want to do it yourself, you can.

Maybe the laser requires cleaning, go to a Electronics store and pickup a can of compressed air and a disc drive cleaning kit and see if that will work.

One game (on a disk with 8 games) no longer works on my PS2


Is the disc scratched? If so it may be scratched in an area that contains data for the game. If that is the case, try repairing the disc using a repair kit, bring it to a game shop that repairs discs, or purchase a new copy.

Disc not being read on gameboy and ps2


Is the disc clean? Is the console dust free and clean? Is it well ventilated? Is disc scratched? On top or bottom? If scratched on bottom you can have it resurfaced for about $2.00 if it is scratched on top you are out of luck because that side is the memory side and the disc will not ever work again. Try to see if it will play in a PS3. If you don't have one or if you don't anyone with one try to call a game store that sells them and see if they will let you see if it will play in their PS3.

Ps1 games slow on ps2


It's because the CD's that the PS2 is designed to be used for are DVD (discs) these have more complex data on them and thus the low level discs are read with such intensity that they cannot declare all the information on them!

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
