Re: had ps1 game resurfaced, no longer works on ps2
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

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.
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.
Try wiping the disks in a circular motion with a cotton t-shirt, tissue or cleaning cloth, then try again. If it still doesn't work, try a PS2 game. If it works, try another PS1 game. If the other PS1 game doesn't work, the PS1 part of your PS2 system may be broken. Your PS2 has, inside of it, a miniaturized PS1. If that mini-PS1 breaks, you can't play PS1 games. If the PS2 game doesn't work, you probably need a lens repair. If the other PS1 game works, then your games are defective and you should get new ones.
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.
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!
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
