Re: PS2 memory card

Have you tried both Memory Card slots? Maybe Final Fantasy Tactices doesn't understand a 16 MB Memory Card since the official Sony ones are only 8 MB's. Maybe you can try one of those?

Let me know if this helps. Please rate.

Final Fantasy PS2 problem, "failed to check memory card"

Im going to ask you the simplest of all questions, if you can't answer it then step away from the Playstation! Is it a PS1 or PS2 Memory card?

There is no reason why it won't work if it is a PS1 memory card unless the card itself is corrupt somehow

If it is a PS2 memory card use a PS1 card. FFVIII is a PS1 game. Therefore needs a PS1 card

Ps3 wont play ps2

you need to check how many gigabytes you have left in memory because every ps2 game you use has to make its own folder in the ps3 which each one uses alot of the memory so if you play alot of differnt games and are in the middle of saved games for ex. final fantasy they use lot of memory so check that and a easy way is to delete some of your non used things like pictures or demos you downloaded from th internet and things like those
