This means the game is not actually for the ps2 and you will not be able to play it on this console.

How to fix rsod on pcsx2 0.9.7


The infamous Red Screen of Desk -- A.K.A. Insert a Format Disc screen.

This 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. We don't install or sell mod chips, so we can't help you with that one.

Just hooked up the ps2 and it's asking for a ps or ps2 format disk?


To use the system you need official Sony Playstation or Playstation 2 game disks. Backup disks will not work without hacking your system, and are illegal.

Original Playstation (one) disks are hard to find at stores, but PS2 / Playstation 2 disks can be found cheaply at stores like 'Game Stop' or 'Walmart'

Good Luck

Where can we get the a download to format a disc


Your PS2 doesn't need to format a disc. It's asking for a disc with Playstation 2 type software on it. In other words, it's looking for a PS2 game.

If you're putting a PS2 game in there and it's asking for one -- your laser is going out. It thinks the disc you put in is not a disc of PS2 type (PS2 format). You can find a quick tutorial on confirming this is the problem, and the laser (and repair) at the following page:

Some PS2's have a problem with reading certain Blue disks. You have two options:
1. I believe that you can send it back to Sony to repair (they will make you pay for the shipping)
or
2. If the disc is just for install, you can put a little piece of tape on the inner ring(the tape will touch the top and bottom of the inner plastic ring) and it should read the disc.

I had this problem also years ago. The most steadfast way would be to send it back to be fixed.

Keeps asking for a format disk when i put in a burnt disks


You need to get a mod chip installed in your ps2, without it the ps2 won't get the boot information it needs........This is the coding that doesn't get transfered when you burn you original.

So the mode chip supplies this information to the Ps2 before the game loads.

That is how I understand it anyway. Hope this helps guy. :)
