Re: problem with selecting the CD

The PS1 is getting older so they aren't as reliable as they once were. A quick solution that works on some systems is turning the system upside down or propping it up on it's side.

How to play your favorite soundtrack or voice from a PS1 game.

To play your favorite soundtrack on your CD player or computer then follow these instructions:
1. Insert the disc into your CD player or computer. 2. Wait for it to load. (It might take a while and it may make some noises) 3. TaDa! You can browse through it and rip them or listen to them.
You can also do that in the browser in the PS2

Playstation 1 does not read games,goes to memory

With this symptom, the lens that reads your cds needs cleaning. If you have a cd cleaner, go and play it on your ps1 for like 30 seconds. It this still does not work, you can open your ps1's cover and manually clean the lens. You will be needing a soft ear bud damped in an alcohol and gently wipe the lens surface. Also if you have a blower, you can blow those dust off. It would also help to clean those cds.

Will play ps1 game but not ps2

The PS2 has two different lasers, one for CD games and one for DVD games. The tuning for each is independent. If DVD games are working and CD games are not (backups or originals, PS1 or PS2) and cleaning the CD laser doesn't work and everything's connected together well then you may need to tune/align the CD laser. Just go to and type in 'PS2 laser alignment'. My favorite is the one from Sweden.

Memory card

You can use it to save Ps1 games only if im not mistaken. The ps2 games themselves won't recognize the memory card.

Hope this helps.

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.
