    hi cerfer39

    i followed your advices and tried to clean the circuit contacts and using my memory card in another ps2 console and it freeze too when i try to read the card.

    A guy from a games shop told me that he can fix it by formating it and installing a certain software in it to prevent such error in future!!!

    what do you think??  any different suggestions?

Hi Fouda,

This is more than likely a Memory Card Problem.  Try to clean the Circuit contacts on the memory card, and try it again.  A pencil eraser does an outstanding job on clenaing the Circuit board connectors.

    If my memory serves me correctly, you do not have to format playstation memory cards.  Try to find another PS2 console and see if the other PS2 freezes when your read the card.

    HI Fouda,

    I have never formatted the Memory Cards, and did not even know a devivce was available for formatting.  At this point, you have nothing to loose by allowing the Games Shop Guy to Format and install software.  I apologize for now being able to help on this problem.

My ps2 slim memory cards work on the main screen, but i'm trying to play a ps1 game and as i try to save the game, it says that there is no memory card present. I bought another card with more memory.....

You can't save PS1 games on a PS2 memory card. You need to buy a PS1 memory card to save PS1 games. The PS1 card will plug into the standard memory slot on a PS2, but the insides are different.

PS2 Slim will not play

hi Calex988,
Unlike the PS2 original, PS2 slim doesnt have a fan.
Playing it for 2 days, it most likely overheated and burnt something inside. I would return the console and get a replacement, if you have warrently.

Hi Fouda,

Another thing to try, is to open up the memory card you have been working with. Clean it real good and put it back together and try it again.
