Re: No data

Sounds like a defective unit. The dvd laser most likely burnt out. Call sony for technical support, but It is probably going to need to be fixed. It seems to be a big problem with the older ps2s, which they have supposedly corrected in recent PS2s.

Hope this helps >.<

I dont know how to delete the corrupt data from my play station 2 memory card can you help me please

  • Turn on your PS2 without a disc in it. This will bring you to a menu that says "Browser" and "System Configuration"
  • Choose Browser.
  • There you will be able to access data on your Memory Cards
  • Please reply if you have any more questions. Good Luck! Please give 4 thumbs up if I helped!

Guitar Hero Metallica Wont play on my Ps2

okay, try this: 1. Start up PS2 with no disc 2. select 'Browser', press triangle. 3. select 'Console', press triangle. 4. select 'Diagnostics', press X, select 'ON'. 5. press 'O' to back out of this menu. 6. select 'Playstation Drive', press triangle. 7. select 'Disc Speed', press X, select 'FAST'. 8. press 'O' to back out of menu. 9. turn off PS2. 10. insert disc. The Diagnostics should run and automatically adjust your PS2 to play the game. I got this "FIX" from someone who had the same problem. Hope this helps :D

Corrupted Data on PS2 memory card

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.

Please insert a playstation or ps2 format disc

This problem actually related to the region change.For this problem you have to install a modification chip in your PS2 console after that it will play all your games according to your region.
For this you have to contact any expert nearby to you.

Browser shows no data on PlayStation 2 Console

I am having the same problem with my PS2, but I have an HDD inside of mine. I am told this is a circuit problem inside the PS2 that doesn't allow the information to be transfered to the RAM. That's why you see “No Data” instead of the usual problem of “Disc Read Error”. I hate to say it, but it sounds like you are going to have to do the same thing I am about to do. Send it in to Sony and get it repaired.

I am also pretty sure this PS2 you are talking about is the large fat one, and not the slim one.

Some games are for other regions of the world, the machines are made to only play certain regions games, hence people chipping them, the downloaded games may be missing encrypted data, thus wont play.
