Hi,your problem is the data keeps corrupting your save game files i have a solution for that.
1.When your saving your game do not turn it off while saving.
2.When your saving your game do not remove you memory card.
3.Just buy a new ps2/memory card.
you cannot save another file until you delete previous one.Corruption occurs if the memory card is removed from console or if you reset the game while saving or loading game remember this also happens when you are saving or loading game and electricity turns off.
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.
This can sometimes be caused by the actual PS2 media. PS2 discs usually have either a silver or blue bottom. Silver is DVD media and Blue is CD media. Sometimes the laser mechanism gets a little wonky and can't read one type or another. Typically, older games had the blue discs (Kinetica and Gran Turismo are some of the oldest games on the system) I would check the color of your existing games and see if that is an issue.
Another possible idea is that you just got a bad disc, it doesn't happen very often but it does pop up from time to time.
what may have happened is that the saved files for GT4 on your memory card have now become corrupt, and the disk when put in the suysstem is trying to read the data from the card, simply deleting your saved GT4 data from the memory card should allow the disk to play as normal.
