Re: ps2 problem

Perhaps it is a knock off?

If you bought at a reputable games retailer it should not be or if it came in the pack with the console it should not be a knock off.
Your best option would be to get in contact with SONY or take it to a games store and say you bought a short time ago and it doesn't work with some of your games and see what happens! :)

On the play station it always asks for a Playstation 2 format disc. What is this and how much does it cost?

Hey Rgaul,

What that means is the disc that you are using is not supported by your ps2. Try using a different game and with a ps2 logo on it or even a ps1 game can work. Sometimes the games get really scratched that the ps2 will not recognize it that when you'll get the please insert and ps2 format disc message on your screen. So I would suggest cleaning your disc. That will solve your problem. Let me know if you Still experience the problem and please don't forget to rate me work. I would really appreciate it,

Hey buddy FORMAT DISC means PAL games or NTSC games format.

There are 2 formats dics in this world for the PS1,PS2,PSP,Wii,Gamecube.etc

They are [NTSC] and [PAL]

[NTSC] is for North America and Japan ONLY. [NTSC] is Original games.

[PAL] is for Asia Only. Which is copied games form the Originals.

I need to know were did you bought PS2 Console from ?

If you bought it in North America or Japan then you have to buy and play Original games from North America Only.

If you bought your PS2 in Asia then you can play copied games.

It is most likely your PS2 is a NTSC, your PS2 cant read any PAL games so it will say format dics.

Playing a european PAL game on a canadian NTSC console

Go to a search engine like and search for "Swap Magic".  The Emotion Engine processor that is reading the data from the game is told not to read certain Discs if the region code does not match the conoles country code. It mayl save a game to the memory card but not play the game or run the movie.

Sounds like you went to a lot of trouble to play this game. Since you used all different hardware, I would think it would be one of two things. 1) Were the controllers you used official or off-brand? Some off-brand controllers don't work 100% with all games. 2) Check the surface of the disk for scratches or warping. Also, on the off chance that the controller you were using are wireless, try a wired controller as some wireless can be easily goofed with due to radio interference. On a side note, I am guessing you meant European Assault, if you are playing the European version of the game, then that would cause you even more problems.
