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).

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.
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.
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!
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.
Those Memory Max memory cards for PS2 ****, go get real PS2 memory cards. But the reason it has corrupted was it being turned off while saving, you have to delete the corrupted files and it will work again.
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.
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.
