Question about Sony PlayStation 2 (PS2) Console

1 Answer

Ps1 Ok, a few years ago I got a copy of FF7 to play on my PS2. It worked fine then. But now, I try to play it, and there's either a disc read error, or I get taken to the browser window, and when I click the disc icon, the screen goes black for a few minutes and I go right back to the browser window. The disc looked fine, and I can play all of my PS2 games, what's the issue?

Hi,
If it,s only on this actual game, i,d suggest cleaning the disk itself. FF7 was virtually glitch free.
another way to resolve this, is to play the game right up until it crashes-glitches. 10-20 seconds before. go to the nearest save point, and make a save. re-load the game and see if you go past now. The PS2 has a limited video memory.
On ocassions the memory can be overloaded with graphics info,
My Tip-Trick for cleaning the disk.
1:- put the disk into an old CD Jewel Case. ( so that the underside is facing upwards )
carefully inspect the disk for scratches or debris-fingerprints et,c.
put a small amount of washing up liquid into a small bowl, and add luke( hand Warm Water )
using a soft cotton or lint cloth, dip the cloth into the solution, and wring out. cloth should be dampened not soaking or dripping. Wipe the disk from the inner ( centre edge ) outwards.
Step 2:- wipe the disk with a dry clean cloth ( I find the yellow Duster type Cloths Are Ideal ) now breath on the disk, and polish ( buff up ) with a soft clean cloth.
This should now give you a playable games disk.
If you still can,t get it to work, try a laser head cleaner.
Or e-mail me, for my address. send me the faulty disk and i,ll repair it for you.
Hope this sorts you out.

this isn't my area of expertise but if you really wish to play resident evil, go on doperoms.com and go to emulators, choose a psx emulator and then download it then you can download any ps1 roms like resident evil and play them for free on your computer. it doesn't take a powerful computer, these games will run on an iphone 3g, leave a good rating if this helps

Your system needs a mod chip to play games on a disc that was not created by Sony.
Most ps2 games are DVD's only some are cd's.. All of the ps1 games are cd's so if you burnt it onto a dvd its not going to work.

Getting a disc error when turning on the ps2 with ps2 games, but it works with ps1 games...!


Theres a wheel in the disc drive that controls the elevation of the lens. To mod your ps2 to read burnt ps2 games ONE would alter the height of the lens by adjusting the wheel ever so slightly. There are online tutorials in the precise adjustments for different disks. (one height reads only ps1 games, another height reads ps1 and ps2 games, and one more height reads ps1/ps2 and burnt ps1/ps2 games) Your best bet would probably be to just purchase another ps2 used, but if you want to do it yourself, you can.

New ps1 mem card wont formaton ps2...


I have read that some manufacture PS1 memory cards will not work properly on the PS2. I would suggest trying another PS2 to see if it's a problem with your specific PS2. If the memory card doesn't pop up on the browser screen of another PS2, it could be defective or incompatible. If it does work on another PS2, it could be something weird going on with your memory card slot on your PS2.
