I think you have to manually delete everything off of the memory card, There isn't a format option on a PS2. I havent got my adapter for my PS3 yet to see if I can format the memory card on the PS3.

Insert the PS2 memory card into the first memory card slot on your Playstation 2. Make sure that the card is all the way in the slot the card may not register when you turn on your Playstation 2.
Turn on the Playstation with no game or DVD inside of it. Wait for the main menu to pop up on your television screen.
Using your PS2 controller, highlight the memory card option and press the X button. This will open up the memory card menu, which will allow you to delete data or transfer data from one memory card to another.
Wait for the Playstation 2 to send you a prompt asking you to format your new memory card.

Ps2 not recognising memory card


Try formatting the card. If formatting the card doesn't work, either the reader inside your PS2 is broken, or the card itself is damaged somehow.

I bought a new ps2 and a datel 32mb card and the game i put in says there is no memory card,


Try these steps. If this doesn't work you may want to take the card to Game Stop or something and have them test it to see if it's working. Hope this helps!

  1. Insert the Memory Card into the PlayStation 2 console. The port is located directly above the controller port. Note that there are two different memory card ports; there is no difference between the two. Some games, however, will attempt to auto-load from slot one so it is recommended that you keep your memory card inserted in slot one.
  2. Plug your controller into the PlayStation 2. Power up the system without a PS2 disc inserted. You will be taken to the system menu screen. Select the "Memory Card" menu to examine any data on the card. If the memory card is new there should be no data on the card, if it is used you may see old saves from the previous owner on the card. If you no longer desire to keep these saves, you may highlight them and press the "Triangle" button to delete them.
  3. Insert your PlayStation 2 game disc into the system. When the disc appears on the system menu, select it. Load the game, and play until you are prompted to either create a user profile, or to save your game. Once you have saved any data to the memory card, reset the system.
  4. Select the "Memory Card" menu and examine your memory card. You should see a new icon representing your game's save data. If this data appears on the card, you have correctly set-up your PS2 Memory Card.

    If the data does not appear on the card, you will need to format the card. If the system detects corrupt data on the card it will automatically open a prompt asking if you would like to format the memory card. Select "Yes" and the PlayStation 2 will format the card.

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.
