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.

I want to play duplicate dvds on my ps2 but i am not able to do what should i do can i do it at home


  1. If you have backed up a game for ps2, you're going to need a mod chip or swap magic for your ps2 so it can read the disc, so first things first, BUY A MODIFICATION TOOL!!!
  2. 2You should try using Swap Magic, because it's the easiest, and you won't need to modify your PlayStation too much.
  3. 3But if you use SWAP MAGIC, you will also need a special mod chip, SLIDE TOOL, or a FLIP TOP COVER, you can learn more about those on the swapmagic website
  4. 4Read directions on the installation of mod chip, and swap magic before you do anything (you don't want to mess up, or else your ps2 won't work properly).
  5. 5Install your modchip/flip top cover/slide tool. (This is important, because it allows the disc to be removed and "swapped" without the PlayStation knowing).
  6. 6Follow directions that came with your swap magic discs, and you're basically ready to go!
  7. 7HOW TO USE SWAP MAGIC,Note you must have Swap magic 3.6 to boot on slimline ps2 and you need to do a none solder modding(no soldering)

Purchase a flip top (recommended). Let's assume you have the flip top and a copied ps2 game
  1. 1Now Insert the swap magic disc into the ps2,
  2. 2Press power on button until screens comes up.
    • With option that says load cd open the top cover of the flip top.
    • And take out the cd when it stops spinning.
  3. 3Now insert your Copied game and click Load CD.
  4. 4its that easy

Fake cds


In order to play copied games, you will first have to mod your PS2. To avoid piracy, much of the necessary info on the original disc will be omitted during the copy phase. When you "mod" or put in a new chip, The PS2 can now bi-pass this info and continue to the game. Regardless of the type of PS2 you have, you must put in a mod chip to read back-ups.

Chipped PS2 suddenly stopped reading


Hmmmmm...
That is strange how the boot-up sequence can change. When You bought it, it sounds like it got mod-chipped when you bought it. if are one on the techy side of life then you can open your ps2 and look for one (google mod chip). Also the chance of one being there is higher because it can play copied games. Even though you bought it with the copied games, 1) copied games are illegal, and , 2) PS2's shouldn't be able to play copied games cause it wasn.t designed too.

I hope i helped,

How to modify ps2


The chip is nt pirated. The thing is it is a small chip that has to be installed with the main chip on motherboard where code has been installed. After installing chip, main chip can't recognize original code, thus copied PS2 media works on MOD Chip.The chip comes with many little wires. You can't install that. Go to a expert. It will take an hour to install. Feel free to ask any problem related PS2.

Thank you,KABIDkms_pb@yahoo.com

Playstation 2 not reading disc


Are you using a real game disk or are you using a burned disk? If its burned you need a MOD chip for it. If its real then try to open up the PS2 and try to clean the lens gently with a q-tip. It helped me a couple of times.
