    my memory card is corrupted all because of a sonic game. some of my files were not corrupted. i never played the game agian and had a wonderful time playing my non corrupted games then all my files are corruped even after i stoped playing. how do i fix this?

  • Anonymous Apr 25, 2009

    Yea, same here. I copied my sonic emblem data and i went back to check the data and the file wasnt there, when i went in-game the game said that the memory card failed. I went to chao garden and checked things, and when i went out it didnt say that it was saving, so when i went back to the garden, the chao eggs were unhatched. But before that i noticed something. When i checked the file after i checked it the "S" in the name Sonic Adventure 2 ect. was a "y" with two dots over it... The reason i think it happend is because i used an action replay on it...

Corrupted memorycards are mostly third party memorycards. They are NOT licensed by Nintendo. Don't buy those cards. I had such a card from bigben with a lot of blocs. I lost a lot of important games that are impossible to copy like a Chao garden data from Sonic Adventure 2 Battle or Animal Crossing (I unlocked everything on AC).

When someone turns on a PS2 and when they try to load the memory card when it says Corrupted file what does that mean?


This means that the file they are trying to load from became damaged somehow. It likely became damaged by ejecting the game or turning off the PS2 while the game was saving to the file. There is no way to fix a corrupted file, and you will just have to delete it.

If it is happening to every file on the memory card, the memory card may be broken. There is again no way to fix this, but to try and delete every file on the memory card.

I need to delete currupted data on my ps2 memory card


Plug in the PS2 memory card and dont put in a disk,and hit the power button once,like you would to start the machine.Then a screen with flying orbs(or cubes I cannot remember)should show up in the backround.Then hit the X button to enter the next menu.It should show your memory card,or two if you have two in.Select the memory card and hit X.After that it will dive into the files.Go to the memory that is corrupt and hit X,then find the delete function and hit X again.The memorys icon should fly in circles and get smaller,like its getting flushed down a invisible toilet.If you do not know the corrupted data,you may have to go through and delete memory untill you find the corrupted file.Also corrupted data can interfere with gameplay and make it impossilbe to load some games.I hope it helped.

I have corrupted data in my ps2 memory card &i cannot delete it?


Buy a new memory card.

Yours has developed a glitch or virus and corrupted itself and is not fixable.

My memory card is damaged or currupted


Sadly you'll have to format your memory card, it won't be too hard to do it, just go to your memory card in the GC interface and you'll find an option to erase and format your card. It SHOULD work from then on, although some games will cause some memory cards to corrupt. If you want to be on the safe side, just purchase a new memory card, preferably the ones made by Nintendo as they're more stable than 3rd party companies for the most part. Wish you the best of luck!

Memory card corrupted


I know exactly what the problem is with this, this will be a FixYa rating lol...anyways the reason is because maybe your PS2 was turned off while saving one time. When you save it says do not unhook the memory card or reset or turn off the console. You must have or someone else did. What you need to do is delete all the old stuff and you have to save the games all over again and recatchup your progress in the games. It's like a computer being turned off while saving, but the PS2 will not recover so sorry.

Corrupted Data on PS2 memory card


I don't know if you have been trying to delete the data with a game inside the ps2, but in case you have, try this.

Turn on the system WITHOUT a game inside, select BROWSER, the MEMORY CARD ICON, and i believe the corrupted data icon is a grayish black square. Choose options and then delete.
I am also heard that inserting a music cd will work as well, probably just has to not be a game inside the ps2.

Corrupted data comes from turning off the ps2, or removing the memory card while the game loads or saves data to/from memory card.
I really hope that helps, ps2's are meant to be played! Good luck.

Corrupted memory card help!!!!!!!!!!


I believe you are out of luck. Note that memory cards that are not Nintendo brand, (like Mad Catz) tend to have this problem. Never buy a third party memory card for anything other than backup purposes.
