PS2 Memory Card slot error! Data may be corrupt.?

While I was in the Middle of Playing the Hobbit for the PlaySation(not the slim PS2), I reached a save point and recieved the message:

"Memory Card(8Mb)(For PlayStation2) in MEMORY CARD slot 1 error! Data may be corrupt."

I had just saved the game not thirty seconds earlier, and I've been playing it without any issue over the past two days. The PlayStation is clean, the disc is clean, and there does not appear to be anything visibly wrong with the memory card. Why would it work fine one minute, and fail the next?

Additional Details I've tried playing other games on my PlayStation and the memory card works fine. I also have 5,887 KB free on my card and it has not been rough handled recently in any known manner. The Hobbit game will play without issue, but will not allow me to save.

As of right now there is no true fix to the problem. deleting the file does nothing to stop the future failing of future saving. the file is indeed not corrupted, however, there is something corrupt with the game and it doesn't matter if you buy a new one because it will happen again. it is the game! it is not the memory card, the save file, or your PS2. i recently purchased a new hobbit game to see if it would solve the saving issue, it did not. as soon as i got to a certain point during the Barrels Out of Bond chapter, it sent an error message first stating there was not enough room on the card, then later on it stated that the data was corrupt. there was enough memory and the file was not truly corrupt. as far as we know, there is no solution to this problem. many people have had this issue though and it would be nice if the game's developers would address the issue.

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.

Memory Card Corrupted


These cards have become so cheap it would be better just to buy a new one and use that as backup for the non corrupt data.

if you can get access at all to the memory card look for an blue squares that may be there. this indicates that the is corrupted data on the memory card. You can select and delete the blue squares. My sons memory card from his original ps2 works fine with the slimmer one. He has occasionally ran into corrupted data which he needed to delete

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.

PS2 Disk won't spin


what may have happened is that the saved files for GT4 on your memory card have now become corrupt, and the disk when put in the suysstem is trying to read the data from the card, simply deleting your saved GT4 data from the memory card should allow the disk to play as normal.
