Question about Sony PlayStation 2 (PS2) Console
I was playing madden 08 I saved the game, shut the system off, I come back and my memory card was cleared. I went to the browser and it said there was no data on the memory card. My brother's memory card worked fine on my ps2. It loads and saves as it normally would. My won't save or anything. When a game tries to read it it says there is no card present.
Hi Andrew555, You will see two screws or so that hold the memory card together. open the case of the memory card, The circuit board is probably slid back and not being held forward so that it inserts fully into the card reader on the PS2. Sometimes, the retianer that keep the memory Circuit board forward breaks, and you will have to use your ingenuity to figure a way to keep the circuit board pushed forward.

Good ole carbon scoring. Remember old Nintendo Cartridges. Try taking a cue tip with about 80% water to 20% rubbing alcohol and clean the leads on the inside of the memory card.

I dont think you can fix it but i tried to delete FAILED some guys said take ur music disk put in then turn it on then open browser and some kind things turn on memory card and just delete it i tried but FAILED i tried another things they said. i checked the whole pages to find how to delete i found one but i was to lazy do to so yeah ill just finded a thing (another than what i said now) its was more effective but more effective is to do this hope its helpfull : BUY NEW MEMORY CARD :d (JOKING) Aright serious thing Use uLaunch 4.12 to browse your Mc and either try to save the files or fix them.
If you download my version you may also need powerarchiver to extract the .7z file but you may need to do this on PC thats the best ohhh yeah :D

Most of the time Playstation 1 and 2 memory card no longer work is because they have an internal Battery and after several years it just plain dies. You cannot get it to work again, and anything that is on the card is erased when the battery dies. It is oldschool flash memory... Not the new stuff. YOU MAY AS WELL BUY A NEW THIRD PARTY PS1/2 MEMORY CARD, IT IS YOUR ONLY SOLUTION! Be aware that Third Party Cards only have a short Batterylife and if the person selling it to you has let it sit on shelf for a long time, it may not work either... Lucky they are very cheap.

This isn't exactly a solution but, I've just run into the very same type of problem as the OP is talking about, playing the very same game, Madden 08.
However, when I load other games on the PS2 (tried with Tekken5 and Burnout), the saved data on the memory card is loading just like normal.
