Plastation 2 format disc

Whenever I put in "Gun" I get a red and black screen that says I need to put in a plastation or plastation 2 format disc. All of my other games work in it, but this one won't. Also I rented "Gun".

If this is a rental copy the most likely answer is simply that the disk is scratched or damaged to the point that your PS2 can't read it. With rental games you also need to double check that store staff placed the correct disk in the box, have a look at the disk an ensure it is not an XBox copy. This message would normally suggest however that the copy you have is not from the same region as you're PS2, if you have a US PS2 it will only play US PS2 games, if you have a UK PS2 it will only play UK PS2 games Etc. you cannot play UK games on a US PS2 and vice versa unless your PS2 is fitted with a 'mod chip' and you will usually require a 'swap disk' as well. **be sure you understand the copyright issues involved if you decide to pursue this** Another possibility is that it is a DVD R, not a legitimate disk, without a 'mod chip' your PS2 will not read games written to DVD R/RW (and doing so is most definitely illegal regardless what those to cheap to pay for there games will tell you about "backups").

My plastation 2 grand theft auto san adreas cd freezes


Hello,

Typically when a game or movie skip or freeze on the same part everytime there is something wrong with the disc itself.

Make sure you check the bottom very well, clean any finger prints, grease, dirt ect. Also look closely for scratches. You can purchase a disc cleaner at most places that sell dvd's or music cd's.

Its very unlikely that the laser is the cause, as you would have the same problem with any other disc you put in it.

Post back if you have anymore questions or comments and I will be happy to assist you. Thank you for choosing Fixya!

My ps2 screen says 'insert a playstation or a ps2 format disc


t's not asking for a specific disc, it's asking for a properly formatted PlayStation disc.

This message could mean that any one of several things has happened:
* You are trying to play a Japanese disc on a US PS2, or vice versa
* You are trying to play a game that has been copied onto a CD-R/DVD-R
* Your disc is scratched/dirty/otherwise unreadable
* Your disc isn't a format that the PS2 recognises (i.e. CD, DVD, PS CD-ROM, PS2 CD-ROM, PS2 DVD-ROM, etc)
* Your PS2 is broken
