Reformating or repair PS2 memory card

I've been getting some kinda error (jam) memory card when I tried to access my memory card from the browser (when you don't put any disc into the PS2 and click on the browser). IT will jam after the second line of block appears. Now, is there any solution for it? I hav not get this kinda error before this and my memory card is still usable though not accessible through the console directly, which means I cant delete old game data ;3

Very likely that you have some kind of contamination from Dust or dirt getting into your circuits. To solve this problem will require a detail internal Cleaning of the motherboard. I have fooud all kinds of stuff including dead insects decaying on the circuits and causing crazy stuff like this to happen.

The game cannot be read on our ps2, but the ps2 works for other games. the disk looks fine. what can we try to get this game to play?


Even if the game isn't scratched, you should try holding it under a light to see if there are any fingerprints or smudges on the disc. You can try cleaning the disc with a lint-free cloth if you've got one, though I've never had trouble with a cotton t-shirt. Wipe from the center of the disc straight towards the outer edge. Do this for the entire disc and try it again.

If that doesn't work, please update this issue with the error message you're seeing if any. Does the disc show up in the PS2 browser? Do you get a disc read error? Does the screen just go black when you try to play the game?

I dont know how to delete the corrupt data from my play station 2 memory card can you help me please


  • Turn on your PS2 without a disc in it. This will bring you to a menu that says "Browser" and "System Configuration"
  • Choose Browser.
  • There you will be able to access data on your Memory Cards
  • Please reply if you have any more questions. Good Luck! Please give 4 thumbs up if I 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

My playstation keeps saying to put in a memory card.. even though I have done


did you try reading the memory card without any game discs put in via the ps2 menu?

is your memory card working properly? could be a corrupted memory card or a faulty memory card slot.
try putting a friend's memory card on that same slot.
if it works... then your memory card is gone bad...
if it doesnt work...then your memory card slot has gone bad.

else try putting your memory card in your friend's ps2, see if that ps2 reads your memory card. if it does...then your memory card slot has gone bad.

Disc read error


Disc Read Error generally means that the game disk cannot be read by your console.

Reasons for Disc Read Error
1. Disk surface scratched or smudged.
2. Disk surface dirty.
3. Lens surface dirty.

Here is what you can try doing.

1. Check the game disc for any scratches or smudges on the surface of the game disc, try to clean them off by using a non-abrasive cotton cloth.

2. If the PS2 console is lying down, please set the console to on its side or if it's on its side set it to flat position, restart the console and then try game again. Always ensure the PlayStation 2 is in a cool, well ventilated place.

3. Remove and reinsert the Memory card of your PS2, restart the console then try running the game again.

Other troubleshooting that you can try.

Change the Disc speed of the PS2 DVD and then try again.

Start the PS2 with no disc in a drive. Press the "triangle" button on the controller.
Use the up and down buttons on the controller to select "Playstation Driver” and press the "triangle" button on the controller.
Select Disc speed. If it is set to "Fast," select "Standard"; if it is set to "Standard", select "Fast" and press the "X" button on the controller. Press the "O" button on the controller. Insert the game disc and restart the PS2. Try running the game again.


Turn the Diagnosis On for PlayStation2 to auto detect the best settings.

From the Browser and System Configuration menu. Press the triangle button to select Version. Highlight the Console from the list and press the triangle button - this accesses the next menu option. The Diagnosis will be highlighted. Press the X button to access the options available. Highlight "ON" and press the X button to affect the change. Restart the console and try the game again.

If the above steps does do not solve the error then you would probably have to replace the disc.


Note: If you are using the Slim version of PS2 make sure that the console is properly ventilated and that it should always be in the standing position, as the slim version of PS2 no fan or any other cooling unit unlike the normal PS2.

Disc read error


Your PS2 lens is faulty or it is physically jammed in it's metal rod which stops the lens to move smoothy. you better open the PS2 console and observe it offline for jam. or replace the lens with a new one.
