Question about Sony PlayStation 2 (PS2) Console

Memory Card won't work in some games

I've got a genuine Sony Memory Card, and some games like Burnout 3 simply refuse to register the card is there. However, they register the fake (chinese copy) cards I have, yet fail to save to these either.
I can write to all three cards using the Sony Browser, so I presume the port itself and the cards are not faulty. What could be causing this problem?

(problem exists with Burnout 3 and sometimes with Gods of War, both genuine legitimate discs)

One trick that I found working every time is that turn on the console, pull out memory card, insert game disk and start the game. When the game menu shows up put memory card in. From there onwards games will be loaded and saved properly without this issue.

Why won't my Sansa 250R won't recognize an sd card?


Your 4GB card is actually a microSDHC card. The e250 works with microSD cards, 2GB and smaller.

My dsi xl won't read my R4i revolution gold


Hey Yenibeth,

I think it may be because you went to System Update and updated your DSi to the latest firmware? Once your DSi console has been updated to v1.4.3 firmware it cannot then be downgraded. If you are using a genuine R4i 3DS card (check on the r4dsrevolutioncards.com website by the way, they do a pretty good guide on the different types of genuine / fake cards. Also see r4dsrevolutioncards.com, they're pretty useful for R4i card info) then you should be able to update the firmware of the R4i card through the "Settings" menu of the R4i. You need to do this on a 1.4.2-or-below DSi console, or a DS Lite though.

NintendoDSCards.com has an info page and a video to show you how to update a legit R4i card (NOT fakes) - click here to visit the 1.4.3 R4i Update page.

If you're using a fake card (such as the R4i Gold, R4i Ultra etc.) then it's quite likely the card simply isn't supported and you'd need to get a new one. Your best bet is to buy an authentic card and simply buy something decent that's upgradable. DS cards unfortunately don't last forever, and teams eventually stop supporting the cards - but the fake ones are terrible at this to be honest!

I personally shop with dscardworld (www.dscardworld.com) and they're great, but that's because I live in the US. I used to live in Sweden and if you are in Europe then nds-gear (nds-gear.com) are just better if you live outside of the US/Canada in my opinion, so pick depending on where you live. Both of those shops are authentic retailers of R4i, Acekard and Supercard by the way (probably others too but those are the ones I've used).

If you're getting a card for a 3DS / DSi console I'd recommend a Supercard DSTWO since it's pretty much just awesome and you can play Gameboy Advance games as well on it. But if you just need a basic card or you're using it on a DS Lite / DS, I'd get an Acekard 2i. Up to you really, I think both of them also stock the genuine R4i's but they seem to be going out of fashion these days.

Hope I've helped, good luck!

Cant save game data to my sons psp


Hi mr_bagpuss,

The memory card of your PSP needs to be checked. Since you can't save data andgame on it, it's showing that the memory is not properly connected, intact orworst case defective. You can still diagnose the problem by doing these steps:

1. Turn off the PSP.

2. Now take the memory stick out then check if pins are clean.

3. If it continues not to work after checking the pin, try to check the memorycard using your PC. You can simply open the card via card reader.

4. If your PC cannot detect the memory card, it means that the memory card isnow defective. Now it's time for you to buy a new memory card.

Hope it helps.

Thank you for using FixYa.

Ps2 memory card wont work


check the back of the game cover to see how many blocks it will use to save the game data. Your memory card may not be big enough. You may need to buy a bigger memory card to save the data.

My memory card slot 1 doesn't work can I change the unit so that games will save to slot 2 instead or how do I swap the slots in the unit


Hi,

When you choose to save when you are in any game, on the save screen you can choose to save to slot 2 provided there is a memory card inserted in slot 2.
