Do other "online" games work OK from your hard drive or is it only "online" games that your having a problem with? If its only online games that are the problem what are you doing differently with online games to non online games? Is it also possible to wipe the saved games from the hard drive then resave them and try again? More information on the problem please - Thanks

Are there any other games saved to the hard drive that play OK, Is this the first time that you have tried to run games from the hard drive? Is the hard drive set up OK to begin with? What software are you using with the setup to save the games to the hard drive, Has it all been working OK before now?

I bought Rock Band drum set from Malaysia. But there was no disc inside the pack. I was trying to connect the same to my PS2 but asking for a rock band disc. Where can i purchase the same or can i get a...


As you've noted, you'll need to buy a Rock Band disc. You might be able to find one in the used game section of your local video game retailer (Gamestop for example).

Alternatively, you can purchase it online. Here is a link to the PAL version of the game. I linked to the PAL version (on amazon.co.uk) as you mentioned Malaysia in your question, which is a PAL region, and the UK is also a PAL region. The PS2 is region locked so your games must match the same region as your PS2.

You need a mod chip to burn PS2 games from your hard drive and play them on your PS2. Plain and simple look up a guide for modding PS2's and buy a mod chip for roughly 40-60$ and you're all set.

My PS2 does not read game DVDs but plays DVD films


You may need to clean and readjust the laser, which is painstakingly long and hard. As there are like 7 or 8 different version numbers of the PS2 each one has a slightly different internal configuration, guides can easily be found by typing in "PS2 Disk Read Error" on a search engine like www.google.com

Sorry I couldn't help you more, I tried to fix my own PS2 about a year ago and ruined the motor drive for the tray, so will not touch or condone such unless your pretty good with small parts and electronics.

Need to format


Hi, You can try: 1. Open your "My Computer" and determine which of your HDs is the Maxtor III, say "E" or "F"; 2. Right click on the Maxtor III; 3. Click on "Format"; 4. On the File System, select FAT 32; 5. Click on "Start" Of course formatting your HD will delete its content. Alternately, you can: a. Open a command prompt window (type "cmd" in "Run"; b. type "format E: /fs:FAT32" assuming your PC assigned the drive letter "E" to the Maxtor III; c. hit "Enter" If for some reason this will not work, you may have to likewise delete the partition first. A handy 3rd party utility for the partition/format of a hard disk is Partition Magic. Hope this be of some help/idea. Post back how things turns out or should you need further information. Good luck and kind regards.
