Where can we get the a download to format a disc


Your PS2 doesn't need to format a disc. It's asking for a disc with Playstation 2 type software on it. In other words, it's looking for a PS2 game.

If you're putting a PS2 game in there and it's asking for one -- your laser is going out. It thinks the disc you put in is not a disc of PS2 type (PS2 format). You can find a quick tutorial on confirming this is the problem, and the laser (and repair) at the following page:

Fake cds


In order to play copied games, you will first have to mod your PS2. To avoid piracy, much of the necessary info on the original disc will be omitted during the copy phase. When you "mod" or put in a new chip, The PS2 can now bi-pass this info and continue to the game. Regardless of the type of PS2 you have, you must put in a mod chip to read back-ups.

Please insert ps2 format disc?


Try inserting the disc in your computer. If it reads its fine. Then look if the Slus...... is compatible.maybe thats why it doesn't play. your ps2 must have an old bios system even if slim.

Put in Sanandreas and it reads please put in a PS2 format disk


1. CLEAN THE LASER. ALWAYS DO THIS FIRST. MOST TIMES THIS IS ALL YOU NEED TO GET YOUR SYSTEM BACK RUNNING A 100% AGAIN

2. IF THE LASER CLEANING DON'T WORK ON YOUR PS2 SYSTEM PERFORMANCE THEN TRY ADJUSTING THE LASER VOTAGE.

3. IF THE LASER VOTAGE DON'T WORK YOU NEED TO REPLACE THE LASER

On the play station it always asks for a Playstation 2 format disc. What is this and how much does it cost?


Hey Rgaul,

What that means is the disc that you are using is not supported by your ps2. Try using a different game and with a ps2 logo on it or even a ps1 game can work. Sometimes the games get really scratched that the ps2 will not recognize it that when you'll get the please insert and ps2 format disc message on your screen. So I would suggest cleaning your disc. That will solve your problem. Let me know if you Still experience the problem and please don't forget to rate me work. I would really appreciate it,

Asking please insert format disc when trying to play a new game


The game you have is not being recognized by your ps2, you need to make sure that your ps2 is modifed to be able to play ALL ps2 games through out the world. Or if your ps2 is modified already then its a bad disc copy.
