DNT FORMAT IT if you do then it will just unformat its self when you turn it back on i have the same problem if i was you i would try deleting some stuff off the memory card (turn the play station on with out a disk in and click on memory card) than delete some old data you dont want. but if that still dont work then try blowing in the memory card (it might be a bit old). after you have done all of these things and it still dont work then i would go on a website about sony play stations and unformating memory cards, and there will be a phone number ring it tell them whats happened and they will surly send you a new memory card but that would meen your old memory card would have to go in the bin :( its a plesure to help.

I have no manual my problem is I have a First Generaiton Ps3 and would like to transfer my Ps2 memory card and cant figure it out. pleae help thank you Nichole


Prerequisites There is no PS2 memory card slot in the PS3 so will need a Memory Card Adaptor. Sony made an official adapter but there are also a number of cheaper alternatives. Buy one online:
Steps
  1. Plug your PS2 memory card into the adaptor
  2. Plug the adaptor into a free USB port on your PS3
  3. Go to the "Game" menu in the XMB and choose "Memory Card Utility (PS/PS2)"
  4. If the adaptor is working you should see an item called "Memory Card (PS2)". Below the title should be the size of the card and how much is in use-in my case "1334 KB / 7998 KB"
  5. Press the controller's Triange button to get the Memory Card options. Select "Copy"
  6. Select "Yes" to confirm the copy from memory card to the hard drive
  7. Enter a name for the new Internal Memory Card that will be created on the hard drive, or leave the default name. I named mine "Original PS2 saves". Select "OK"
  8. The data will be copied. If the amount of saved data is too large, the system will automatically create multiple internal memory cards
  9. You may be informed that the new internal card has been assigned to a "slot". These slots are an emulation of the physical memory card slots in the PS2, so similarly you may only have two internal/virtual cards "plugged in" (assigned) at a time. The internal memory card must be assigned to slot 1 or 2 to be available when you run PS2 games
  10. The new internal memory card should now be showing in the XMB, under Game > Memory Card Utility
  11. Selecting the card will allow you to browse the game saves that were copied across!

Can not create internal memory card, whenever I try I returned back to the screen that says name a internal memory card.


http://ps3explained.com/intermediate/internal-memory-cards/
Create an Internal Memory Card on the PLAYSTATION 3 system HDD as follows:

1. Navigate to [Memory Card Utility (PS/PS2)] under [Game] on the XMB.
2. Press “X” to bring up the “New Internal Memory Card” option.
3. Tell the PLAYSTATION 3 which format you want it to create. PS2 or PS1.
4. Highlight “OK” and press “X” to finish creating the memory card.

Note that you can make new saves on this card while playing PS2 or PS1 games on the PS3, but it does not allow you to transfer saves from a physical memory card to the PS3's HDD. You need the memory card adapter to do that.

If there are sd card error, you cannot format your sd card. you may get messages like


"No SD memory card inserted" messages appears when using digital cameras,
"A media card hard been inserted that contains errors. Do you wish to repair the Media Card now?"
You can read the files on SD memory card, but you cannot write new files or you cannot edit files on SD memory card,
"Access denied", when SD card is corrupted or broken,

... ...

... ...

you can fix sd memory card errors first and them format you sd card.

I cant save sim city 2000 on my ps3


Make room free on your ps3's harddisk, this is where al data on your ps3 is stored.
Some games install alot game data, resulting in a harddisk thats is full.
Remove game data from games that you're not planning to play any more soon.

No data


Sounds like the memory card became corrupted, beware of buying massive memory data cards for ps2 as the bigger they are the more chance of problems, sounds like you will have to get new card.

Ps2 memory card


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.
