Re: my max memory card will not work in slot one

The fact that you got it to work at all is a miracle, newer models of the PS2 have the ability to block the use of memcards bigger than 8mb (sony only makes 8mb ones).
It's one of the newer features sony put in, like the lack of usb keyboard support and the inability to use some of the non-sony controllers.

New ps1 mem card wont formaton ps2...

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.

Ndsl/nds k6 super card

Take all the memory contents out to your computer as backup, format your memory to fat32 or fat16 and aftert that put all the memory contents again to the memory from your computer. If not working try downloading the card system files from the card manufacturer web site, these files are needed to run the card just like the operative system in your PC, if these files get corrupt or deleted the card wont work.

When you choose to save when you are in any game, on the save screen you can choose to save to slot 2 provided there is a memory card inserted in slot 2.
