You can format your card, but you cannot get your data back unfortunately. Start the PS2 with no disc in and enter the memory card utility, try manualing deleting the corrupted data. If that does not work, you have a couple of options. I will give you two. Invest in a new memory card, or look into purchasing an AR Max bundle with, one that comes with a memory editor. This bundle has personally helped me as it completely formats your memory cards, and it also allows easy transfer of game saves,

While you may not being able to save your data, investing in an AR Max bundle (they shouldn't be too expensive nowadays) will allow you to download game saves from websites like GameFAQS.com which will let you bypass playing from the start again.

Good luck.

PS2 Memory Card slot error! Data may be corrupt.?


as of right now there is no true fix to the problem. deleting the file does nothing to stop the future failing of future saving. the file is indeed not corrupted, however, there is something corrupt with the game and it doesn't matter if you buy a new one because it will happen again. it is the game! it is not the memory card, the save file, or your PS2. i recently purchased a new hobbit game to see if it would solve the saving issue, it did not. as soon as i got to a certain point during the Barrels Out of Bond chapter, it sent an error message first stating there was not enough room on the card, then later on it stated that the data was corrupt. there was enough memory and the file was not truly corrupt. as far as we know, there is no solution to this problem. many people have had this issue though and it would be nice if the game's developers would address the issue.

Memory Card Corrupted


you cannot save another file until you delete previous one.Corruption occurs if the memory card is removed from console or if you reset the game while saving or loading game remember this also happens when you are saving or loading game and electricity turns off.

Corrupted Data on PS2 memory card


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.
