Your system needs a mod chip to play games on a disc that was not created by Sony.
Most ps2 games are DVD's only some are cd's.. All of the ps1 games are cd's so if you burnt it onto a dvd its not going to work.

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:

Daughter steped on the console part and now it reading disc error

If there was a game in the console when she steped on it, and you kept playing it after and it still worked. Then, {this is just a guess}, the ps2 could have gotten use to the game in the console and when you took it out and put a new game in it was not used to it so maybe you should just keep trying to play a different game until it works. But if you already tried that then i think the ps2 could be broken.
