Hi Lofatman,

 

If this problem happens with the memory card when its in either slot 1 or slot 2

I suggest you clean the contacts of the memory card. 

 

If it just happens when you have in Slot 1 or Slot 2 only,

 Go to Radio Shack and get a Can of contact cleaner that has a Brush built into the Spray nozzle. 

  1. Turn off the PS2 and disconnect the power cord.
  2. Use a small screwdriver to press open the memory card slot. Do not use too much force, its delicate.
  3. Push the Brush sprayer up into the memorycard slot and spray a little and brush away at the memory slot contacts.

if you do not have success with that, you must open the PS2 case, and Remove the Controler ports and clean up the whole controller port assembly.

 

If that doesn't work, and your frustrated and not Electronically skilled enough to do this.  I can get the PS2 in tip top shape, for $32 and that includes return shipping.  I run the website www.playstationclinic.com

 

This should put you in business.

The fact is your memory card is corrupted, same thing happens in flash disc which reads about a half full of MB but literally it has no data inside.

But i cant save or load anything on my memory card!!!!!!!!!

Inside the memory slot of the ps2 you will see a series of gold metal bands. They each should be slightly bowed above the plastic to contact the memory card. Often one or two are flat and miss contact. Take off cover and gently using a needle lift up these bands slightly. This should fix problem.

SOURCE: Memory card problem

Hi Rilmriley,

Some Memory cards are not compatible with all games. Try a diffrent game with your memory card to see if it loads. I have some games that will not work with my memory cards. I need to buy a newer version or something like that.

I'm playing PSone games on my Ps2 and I am using a playstation one memory card. My ps2 loads from the memory card, but when I try to save data onto my ps1 memory card the ps2 freezes on the load screen.


YOU PROBABLY DON'T HAVE ENOUGH MEMORY ON YOUR PS1 CARD AND THE PS2 DOES'T KNOW HOW TO TELL YOU THIS BECAUSE IT WAS ONLY PROGRAMED TO SAY NOT ENOUGH MEMORY WITH A PS2 MEMORY CARD. TO PLAY OFF YOU SAVED DATA TRY TRANSFERRING YOUR MEMORY TO A COMOUTER THEN TO A PS2 MEMORY CARD... BEST OF LUCK

Corrupt file comes up when i put memory card in.


Start your PS2 with no game in the disc tray and then select your memory card then delete all of the files and then restart your system. Another thing you can do is put an audio CD in the PS2 and then go to your browser and go into your memory card and try deleting it files. Reformat your memory card

Loading error memory card


  • You can try cleaning the pin/cartridge area on the memory card with a Q-Tip and a cleaning solution. (clean on each side)
Maybe it's dirty, and doing that will fix it, hopefully.
