Question about Sony PlayStation 2 (PS2) Console

1 Answer

Our PS2 will not play PS1 games at all and the PS2 games will not load (if at all) except after turning the unit on & off at least 8-10 times. Can we fix ourselves?

Yes, you can fix it yourself, if you are okay with partially disassembling your PS2. Follow this guide: http://arstechnica.com/gaming/guides/2003/11/ps2-repair-guide.ars to fix the disk read error that is common with PS2s after a few years of use. I have personally used it on mine and it fixed the same error you are describing.

Please rate, thanks!

Ps1 disc playing in ps2


Are you inserting a PS2 or a PS1 memory card?
PS1 games can't use a PS2 card because they don't "understand" how to read them.
To save a PS1 game on a PS2 you will need a PS1 memory card.

I hope this helps, I assume this is what you are referring to with your question.

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
