Question about Sony PlayStation 2 (PS2) Console
I just bought my kids a PS2 and an 8MB memory card. I don't know much about either of these items but the memory card was saving information for about the last 4 days, then today it stated that it could not save any information because it may be corrupt. Why would this happen? Nobody has touched the memory card since we put it in the PS2 on Christmas. We are playing Sonic Heros & Spongebob Lights, Camara, Pants. Could the games or the way we have been saving the information have destroyed the card? Please help!
I've yet to have seen a controller cause an issue except if it is unplugged when the system is saving a game. Also turning off the system while it is saving the game can cause this.
I've never seen a game say that the card is corrupt, when indeed, the card is full.
Did you buy the console and card new or used?
It could be that third party software is installed on the card. If so I would recommend purchasing another card and copy any of the sames you can over to the new card then format to old card. Eventually you will need the second card and this will allow you to keep the games you have saved.
Heck, you could probably take back the old card depending on where you got it.
Let us know if this gets to working for you.

Sound like too many saved files ..open the card (no game in console) look at the saved files if its full delete something if there is a corrupt file.. here is a foot note copyright seca.sony.
1 If the controller or memory card you are using is neither made nor licensed by Sony Computer Entertainment America, Inc. (SCEA) for use on the PlayStation 2 console, we would recommend you do not use that product. It has not been tested to perform properly for use on the PlayStation 2 console and, accordingly, SCEA does not recommend its use.
