Hi,

By formatting a disk, your actually creating a Blank-Disk.

The PS2 won,t read a blank disk.

is your console Saying " disk format Unknown "

This is a completely different Issue.

In this case, the PS2 does not play this type of Disk.

SOURCE: My Sony PlaySatation2 console wont read any games on PS2 discs.

9 out of 10 times when the fat ps2 cant/wont read disk its the cd tray needs to be adjusted.

I would suggest opening up the ps2 and cleaning the console with Qtips and rubing alcohol. if the laser will wont read. go to youtube.com type in fix my ps2 laser. you will watch a video on how to adjust your cd tray.

The reason for this issue is if the laser is to close or to far from the cd the laser cant read the cd.


the worse problem u can come across is the laser 100% failed. which is rare but you can buy a new/used working laser on ebay.com or google it. the laser will have the model on it you want to make sure you get the correct model. otherwise it wont work.

SOURCE: format disc

Iused to have this issue with my original PS2 as well. Go to Rite-Aid or Target and pick up laser cleaner that you would normally use on like DVD players and regular CD players. They come with a disk that has one or two small bristle brushes on it, depending on the manufacturer of the cleaner. Just pop it in and follow the instructions that are burned on the disk. It should clean the disc and take care of any scratches or small dust particles on it. You can also try using a can of air duster and use it to blow out any dust that might be inside the console. It worked for me everytime.

SOURCE: i have a playstation2 console that will not

A few things:
There are numerous problems with the gameshark discs not working with Slim PS2's. If yours is a slim, it's not too surprising.
What is the version of Gameshark you have? Early versions had PS2 identification issues (it often did not recognize it as a valid PS2 disc without many many retries). Gameshark Pro corrected this problem.
Thirdly, you state the disc is 'formatted for ps2'. If it is a copy of a genuine Gameshark, your problems will be amplified.
