Re: Ps2

This is because the initial read zone on the PS2 is now needed to get the PS1 game past the boot stage. I've seen this done and it's simliar to a hot-swap disc. The only solution is really a new PS2, but good luck in continuing this little "cheat" on the error: it should work indefinitely

I was just wondering, IF the PS2 can play games that have been edited on a computer/laptop (e.g. 4-disc PS1 game put onto one disc), and not edited as in the actual game disc being edited, but put on a...

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.

Ps1 games slow on ps2

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!

Ps1 games

your slimline might not normally play the games Use swap magic it should have two discs one for booting PS2 games and one for booting PS1 games you simply put the appropriate swap magic disc and then the game you want to play

Ps1 games

Are you receiving a disc read error? Or do they simply not load?

In either case, you will want to make sure that your laser is clean. This will require opening the console.

Just google playstation 2 repair and look for free walkthroughs...they are everywhere.

I would boil the problem down to 3 possibilites....

1. Alignment

2. Adjustment of the cd side of your laser potentiometer

3. A simple cleaning of your laser

Playstation card

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
