Corrupted Data on PS2 memory card

If I click on browser, then go to one of my memory cards, there is corrupted data along with other saved data on it. When I try to delete the corrupted data, it says delete failed. How do I get rid of this corrupted data?

I don't know if you have been trying to delete the data with a game inside the ps2, but in case you have, try this.

Turn on the system WITHOUT a game inside, select BROWSER, the MEMORY CARD ICON, and i believe the corrupted data icon is a grayish black square. Choose options and then delete.
I am also heard that inserting a music cd will work as well, probably just has to not be a game inside the ps2.

Corrupted data comes from turning off the ps2, or removing the memory card while the game loads or saves data to/from memory card.
I really hope that helps, ps2's are meant to be played! Good luck.

    I found some unconventional methods for reformating the card in the following forum conversations......its worth a try!

    They used :
    mckiller
    Q tools
    a 2004 demo disc that reformats by mistake

    One guy actually said to rub a magnet on it....but that might mess up your ps2! Don't try it.

Buy a new memory card.

Our memory card has corrupt data how do we get rid of it.


There are a lot of reasons data on a ps2 memory card can get corrupted. There is no way to completely get rid of them, but they barely take up any room on the card itself. The only risk is that there is a hightened chance that anything else you put on there could be corrupted at some point.

Memory Card Corrupted


These cards have become so cheap it would be better just to buy a new one and use that as backup for the non corrupt data.

Sounds like the memory card became corrupted, beware of buying massive memory data cards for ps2 as the bigger they are the more chance of problems, sounds like you will have to get new card.
