Question about Sony PlayStation 2 (PS2) Console

PS2 Loading & Playing

The machine powers up and gets to the browser screen fine, i can navigate the browser and settings. when i insert a PS2 or PS1 game or a DVD, it says "Reading Disc" for a significant amount of time (upwards of 10-15 seconds) then displays "Can Not Read Disc". BUT, it plays Metal Gear Solid 2 just fine. It reads some other DVDs and games, and displays them in the browser, but when i select them they do not load. Also, some discs make loud clicking sounds when the machine is reading. I tried cleaning the lens with a cleaning disc, which solved the problem for a few days, but it came back and the cleaning disc is no longer effective. I opened the case and cleaned out a large amount of dust, but it still does not work properly. What solutions are available, and if my PS2 is not fixable, at least why does it only play the one game? Thank You, nwvtskiboy

How to fix rsod in pcsx2 0.9.7

The infamous Red Screen of Desk -- A.K.A. Insert a Format Disc screen.

This screen is NOT asking for a disc to FORMAT the PS2. What it IS asking for is a PS2 or Playstation format [or a better word -- PS2 or Playstation TYPE disc. A disk with Playstation 1 or Playstation 2 type software on it -- in other words, a ps1 or ps2 game]. It's basically asking for a CD or DVD with software that the playstation can play. This red screen occurs when you insert an XBOX game or a burned/copied PS2 or PS1 game. What the PS2 is stating is that is cannot play this format [or type of] disc. It's asking you to insert a format [or type of] disc that it can recognize and use.

The most common reason for this screen appearing, if your PS2 does NOT have a mod chip, is a dirty lens. Try cleaning your lens and this should go away. What happens is that the lens becomes dirty and does not recognize the disc you inserted as being a PS2 or PS1 format [or type of] disc. So it's asking you to insert one. If your PS2 does have a mod chip installed, it could be a problem with the chip or the disc you burned. I don't install or sell mod chips, so I can't help you with that one...

New ps1 mem card wont formaton ps2...

I have read that some manufacture PS1 memory cards will not work properly on the PS2. I would suggest trying another PS2 to see if it's a problem with your specific PS2. If the memory card doesn't pop up on the browser screen of another PS2, it could be defective or incompatible. If it does work on another PS2, it could be something weird going on with your memory card slot on your PS2.

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.
