The infamous Red Screen of Desk -- A.K.A. Insert a Format Disc screen.
screen is NOT asking for a disc to FORMAT the PS2. What it IS asking
for is a PS2 or Playstation format [or a better word -- PS2 or
Playstation TYPE disc. A disk with Playstation 1 or Playstation 2 type
software on it -- in other words, a ps1 or ps2 game]. It's basically
asking for a CD or DVD with software that the playstation can play.
This red screen occurs when you insert an XBOX game or a burned/copied
PS2 or PS1 game. What the PS2 is stating is that is cannot play this
format [or type of] disc. It's asking you to insert a format [or type
of] disc that it can recognize and use.
The most common reason
for this screen appearing, if your PS2 does NOT have a mod chip, is a
dirty lens. Try cleaning your lens and this should go away. What
happens is that the lens becomes dirty and does not recognize the disc
you inserted as being a PS2 or PS1 format [or type of] disc. So it's
asking you to insert one. If your PS2 does have a mod chip installed,
it could be a problem with the chip or the disc you burned. I don't
install or sell mod chips, so I can't help you with that one...
ok, u must have a PS1 memory card in order to save PS1 games. the common PS2 memory card will not save old style game data. for a good place to get a PS1 memory card, a local Gamestop store, or Ebay. good luck man.
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
