This is either a bad memory port on the PS2 or a fried memory card. I would suggest that you get a brand new memory card and try that. You can get new ones very cheap at Wal-Mart & Target usually has them on clearance.
If the problem persists with the new card then the port is bad. You then have two choices: send it in to Sony and pay approximately $150 for them to repair it out of warranty. (As long as the seal that covers the screws isn't broken.) The positive side of this is that it includes a year warranty.
The second option is to open the case of the PS2 and switch the plugs that go into the memory ports. This will allow you to insert a card into the second (right) port and the PS2 will think it is in port #1.
The solution is to buy a new PS2. The memory card is fine, but the problem is the slot. Over time, with wear and tear and users roughly shoving the cards in - the data pins on the inside get bent and warped until they can't handle the abuse anymore and give up entirely.
I recommend GameStop to buy quality used PS2 systems. Good luck!
