My PS2 browser shows that the memory card is inserted and shows also that is empty. I know that, it's brand new and yes, it's a Sony original Memory card for PS2. But my game can't find the memory card, so it can't be saved. I don't know what's the problem at all. If the PS2 shows that the memory card is in slot one and it is being format already, why my Bandicoot game can't find it to save? I am lost. Thanks for your help.

You may need to format the card first before you use it.
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.
Click "Yes" when the formatting prompt appears on the screen. This will automatically format and set up your new memory card for use with your
I have read that some manufacture PS1 memory cards will not work properly on the PS2. I would suggest trying another PS2 to see if it's a problem with your specific PS2. If the memory card doesn't pop up on the browser screen of another PS2, it could be defective or incompatible. If it does work on another PS2, it could be something weird going on with your memory card slot on your PS2.
This is either a bad memory port on the PS2 or a fried memory card. I would suggest that you get a brand new memory card and try that. You can get new ones very cheap at Wal-Mart & Target usually has them on clearance.
If the problem persists with the new card then the port is bad. You then have two choices: send it in to Sony and pay approximately $150 for them to repair it out of warranty. (As long as the seal that covers the screws isn't broken.) The positive side of this is that it includes a year warranty.
The second option is to open the case of the PS2 and switch the plugs that go into the memory ports. This will allow you to insert a card into the second (right) port and the PS2 will think it is in port #1.
Be very carefull with accessories for Playstations as ones that are not Sony brand can cause damage/malfunctions with your system. The only ones that should be used that are not Sony brand are ones that Sony has certified for use with their equipment.
I don't know if you have been trying to delete the data with a game inside the ps2, but in case you have, try this.
Turn on the system WITHOUT a game inside, select BROWSER,
the MEMORY CARD ICON, and i believe the corrupted data icon is a
grayish black square. Choose options and then delete. I am also heard that inserting a music cd will work as well, probably just has to not be a game inside the ps2.
Corrupted data comes from turning off the ps2, or
removing the memory card while the game loads or saves data to/from
memory card. I really hope that helps, ps2's are meant to be played! Good luck.
You will see two screws or so that hold the memory card together. open the case of the memory card, The circuit board is probably slid back and not being held forward so that it inserts fully into the card reader on the PS2. Sometimes, the retianer that keep the memory Circuit board forward breaks, and you will have to use your ingenuity to figure a way to keep the circuit board pushed forward.
