Re: playstation 2

First you should try cleaning your lens with a disk cleaner you can buy just about anywhere ... check you games scratches finger prints, ect,, hold the game up yo the light if you can see daylight use a sharpie pen to cover it picture side only. if that does not work.. then your games are too messed up or you have had it a long time and it needs a good cleaning .. also a can of compressed air works for a good blowing out.if all else fails you may need to replace your lens ..if that has to happen i can send you a video on how to do that. hope this helps

Want to play ps1games

I don't have that problem with mine, I have two memory cards 1 for a PS 1 & 1 for a PS2 and it depends on what game I want to play as to which memory card I put in the 1st slot! maybe your system is different but I don't have any trouble saving anything from PS 1 onto a PS 1 memory card.

I don't know if this helped any, but I sure do hope that you get your problem fixed!!

Ps1 disc playing in ps2

Are you inserting a PS2 or a PS1 memory card?
PS1 games can't use a PS2 card because they don't "understand" how to read them.
To save a PS1 game on a PS2 you will need a PS1 memory card.

I hope this helps, I assume this is what you are referring to with your question.

Problem of ps2 console

Hi Faizy,


It should play Cd, Cdr, and DVD as well.  If it will play PS2 and ps1, it should have not problem playing the other three.  If your discs are dirty that was cause it not to read.  If its more can you please expand on what is happening.

Playstation card

Your question is somewhat confusing, using a playstation 2 memory card, will have PS2 game saves on it, how would you play PS2 games on a PS1 from the save, you can't. If you just mean you are using a PS2 card for a PS1, the way a PS2 card saves data is different to a PS1 card, so it probably won't work You can use your PS1 memory cards in the PS2. You can only use the PS1 memory cards to save PS1 games that you are playing in your PS2. You can't save any PS2 game data to a PS1 memory card
