No source will read my memory stick pro duo mark 2

  1. Try re-formatting your memory stick from your PSP console. A memory stick that is formatted from a PC or other hand held console sometimes cause incompatibility problem with the PSP.
  2. If your PSP still can not read the memory stick, try checking your memory stick by using your friends PSP and see if they can access the memory stick.
  3. If the memory stick can be accessed by your friends PSP then there is a problem with the memory slot of your PSP.
  4. The only way to check the contacts of the memory slot of your PSP is to disassemble you PSP and take out the mother board.

PS2 Memory Card "Unformatted"

DNT FORMAT IT if you do then it will just unformat its self when you turn it back on i have the same problem if i was you i would try deleting some stuff off the memory card (turn the play station on with out a disk in and click on memory card) than delete some old data you dont want. but if that still dont work then try blowing in the memory card (it might be a bit old). after you have done all of these things and it still dont work then i would go on a website about sony play stations and unformating memory cards, and there will be a phone number ring it tell them whats happened and they will surly send you a new memory card but that would meen your old memory card would have to go in the bin :( its a plesure to help.

PS2 memory card corrupted "message" Does anyone know if the card can be fixed and if I can get all my date back. Thank You, Pierre

You can format your card, but you cannot get your data back unfortunately. Start the PS2 with no disc in and enter the memory card utility, try manualing deleting the corrupted data. If that does not work, you have a couple of options. I will give you two. Invest in a new memory card, or look into purchasing an AR Max bundle with, one that comes with a memory editor. This bundle has personally helped me as it completely formats your memory cards, and it also allows easy transfer of game saves,

While you may not being able to save your data, investing in an AR Max bundle (they shouldn't be too expensive nowadays) will allow you to download game saves from websites like which will let you bypass playing from the start again.

Good luck.

Having trouble with the memory card

You need a new memory card, the one you have may not be large enough, or wrong format. I suggest a 32MB PS2 format mem card.

You can use Action Replay Max (AR Max) disc to format your ps2 memory card. Some case when you can't saving, that problem with memory port on the console. try to go Browser menu and then plugin your memory, you should see the memory icon.

My PS2

Have you already tried the other slot on your ps2?
If you have a different ps2 try to insert the mem card there, if the issue persist then it might be a corrupted memory card. You can either format it or use ActionReplayMaxEvo's tool for formatting if your ps2 is still unable to recognize or read it. I bought that not for cheats but for formatting my 8mem card and made it 32mb after formatting my memory card, for some reasons its like a upgrade firmware for the mem card.
