I am sorry to say your files are gone,. I know how disastrerous this is as you have put in many hours developeing thse saves.  If it were me, I would kick my cousins tail. The Memory card is actually static memory, and cannot be restored.

I need to delete currupted data on my ps2 memory card

Plug in the PS2 memory card and dont put in a disk,and hit the power button once,like you would to start the machine.Then a screen with flying orbs(or cubes I cannot remember)should show up in the backround.Then hit the X button to enter the next menu.It should show your memory card,or two if you have two in.Select the memory card and hit X.After that it will dive into the files.Go to the memory that is corrupt and hit X,then find the delete function and hit X again.The memorys icon should fly in circles and get smaller,like its getting flushed down a invisible toilet.If you do not know the corrupted data,you may have to go through and delete memory untill you find the corrupted file.Also corrupted data can interfere with gameplay and make it impossilbe to load some games.I hope it helped.

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

Memory Card Corrupted

you cannot save another file until you delete previous one.Corruption occurs if the memory card is removed from console or if you reset the game while saving or loading game remember this also happens when you are saving or loading game and electricity turns off.

Corrupted Data on PS2 memory card

I don't know if you have been trying to delete the data with a game inside the ps2, but in case you have, try this.

Turn on the system WITHOUT a game inside, select BROWSER, the MEMORY CARD ICON, and i believe the corrupted data icon is a grayish black square. Choose options and then delete.
I am also heard that inserting a music cd will work as well, probably just has to not be a game inside the ps2.

Corrupted data comes from turning off the ps2, or removing the memory card while the game loads or saves data to/from memory card.
I really hope that helps, ps2's are meant to be played! Good luck.

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.
