If the specific game save data is corrupted while saving(turn off the system while saving or electricity goes off) it can happen.

simply start the system without any disc in it, got to browser, u can see memory card , go inside it you can see the save files try to delete the files and the system config file also. if you cannot delete the it is done using 3rd party software which u can buy it in the websites

thank you

SOURCE: how do i fix my ps2 memory card

Hi Andrew555,

 

You will see two screws or so that hold the memory card together.  open the case of the memory card, The circuit board is probably slid back and not being held forward so that it inserts fully into the card reader on the PS2. Sometimes, the retianer that keep the memory Circuit board forward breaks, and you will have to use your ingenuity to figure a way to keep the circuit board pushed forward.

SOURCE: wont play any discs games

General Troubleshooting: to Site

  • Confirm the disc is clean
    • To clean a disc, use lint-free cleaning cloths made specifically for cleaning discs, sold at computer software stores. When cleaning the disc, we recommend starting from the innermost circle, and wiping out to the edge in a straight line. We do not recommend wiping in a circular motion, as it may create more scratches on the disc.
    • Note: Other materials, such as a paper towel or a T-shirt, may also scratch the disc. If there are any scratches, smudges, or fingerprints on the disc, it may not function properly. Also, do not use or insert any CD/DVD drive cleaners into the PLAYSTATION 3 as doing so may cause damage to the system.
  • Try a different disc
    • Try playing different Blu-ray Discs, DVDs, or CDs on the PLAYSTATION 3 console to see if the problem exists across multiple discs.
  • Try a different PLAYSTATION®3
    • To determine if the problem is with the disc itself, try playing the disc on a different PLAYSTATION®3 system, (or a PlayStation®2 computer entertainment system, PS one™ console, or a standalone CD/DVD player, if applicable).
  • Confirm that you are not using any game modification devices
    • Unlicensed devices such as game modification devices can interfere with the proper function of the software. We do not recommend the use of any game modification devices or unlicensed products.
    • Note: Sony Computer Entertainment America (SCEA) recommends only using products that are licensed for use with PlayStation� products. If the product you are using is neither made by, nor licensed by, SCEA for use on the PS3 system, we recommend you discontinue the use of that product. Please keep in mind products that fail to meet or exceed SCEA's strict quality standards can cause damage to the PS3 system immediately, or with prolonged use. SCEA is not responsible for damages caused by untested, unlicensed products, and any remaining Limited SonyWarranty on the product will be considered void. It is the responsibility of the company that manufactured the unlicensed product to accommodate you, should their product cause damage to an SCEA product.
  • Turn off the BD 1080p 24Hz Output(HDMI) option
    • f the Blu-ray Disc� does not support 1080p 24Hz video mode, the video output may not display properly. Go to [BD 1080p 24Hz Output(HDMI)] under icn_settings.gif Settings icon (Settings) > [BD/DVD Settings] and select "Off".
  • Confirm that the disc you want to play is supported by the PS3™ system
    • View what disc media is supported by the PS3 system.
    • Macrovision Information (for DVD copyright protection)
      • If the PLAYSTATION 3 is connected to the television through a VCR, you may not be able to view DVD movies. This is because of the copyright protection coding that has been programmed into the discs by the DVD manufacturers. If the PS3 system is installed directly to a VCR or TV/VCR combo, please try connecting the PS3 system directly to the TV's video/audio inputs for DVD movie playback.
    • HDCP Compliancy (for Blu-ray Disc with video content)
      • If using HDMI cables, confirm whether the disc you are trying to play has High-Bandwidth Digital Content Protection (HDCP) built in. If so, confirm that the TV or display you are using is also HDCP compliant. Copyright-protected Blu-ray video discs can only be output at 1080p using an HDMI cable connected to a device that is compatible with the HDCP standard.
    • Advanced Access Content System (AACS) for Blu-ray Disc content
      • Blu-ray Disc uses the Advanced Access Content System (AACS) for audio/video content protection. If the Blu-ray Disc does not play, you may need to update your PLAYSTATION 3 to the latest system software to ensure the latest AACS keys have been updated.
      • To learn more about AACS, visit our Consumer Alerts page on AACS.
If the PLAYSTATION 3 does not recognize the disc: to Site
  • Remove the disc and reinsert it.
  • If the disc has a label, insert it with the label side up.
  • Check whether the disc is scratched or dirty. If dirty, wipe it gently with a soft cloth.
  • Make sure the disc has not been exposed to high temperatures, high humidity or direct sunlight. When discs will not be used for an extended period of time, store them in their cases. Stacking uncased discs or storing them at an angle can cause them to warp.
  • DVD-R/DVD-RW/DVD+R/DVD+RW discs that have not been finalized cannot be played.
  • When outputting DVD content or PLAYSTATION 3 format software in SD resolution, only discs recorded in the NTSC standard can be played.
if non of that works you need to contact Sony at

SOURCE: My Playstation 2 memory card has corrupted data.

well, if it only does this error for one game then maybe the problem is in the game itself? Is the CD a real one? or is it copied with a golden back?
if it is copied then such things can definitely happen.

Bought used PSP and does not read games...also it came w/out memory card - if we add one will it work..? (My 11 year old doesn't know)


If it can't read the disks and it's second-hand it's most likely the laser head has gone in it.If you bought it from a shop on the street take it back and try to get a refund.And no, the memory card isn't needed to play most games,it's best if you have one otherwise you lose your progress when you quit the game,all the memory card is for is to store music,photos,videos,and game save data.

Memory Card Corrupted


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.

No data


Sounds like the memory card became corrupted, beware of buying massive memory data cards for ps2 as the bigger they are the more chance of problems, sounds like you will have to get new card.

Memory card


it could be a glitch in the memory card, because a similar problem happen with my gamecube memory card and when i save data on it, it won't keep the data so i don't use it anymore. so a solution could be to buy 2 new memory cards and save the same data on both so if one has the same problem, you have backup data. if that solution does not work it could be the games or the console.

Playstation card


Your question is somewhat confusing, using a playstation 2 memory card, will have PS2 game saves on it, how would you play PS2 games on a PS1 from the save, you can't. If you just mean you are using a PS2 card for a PS1, the way a PS2 card saves data is different to a PS1 card, so it probably won't work You can use your PS1 memory cards in the PS2. You can only use the PS1 memory cards to save PS1 games that you are playing in your PS2. You can't save any PS2 game data to a PS1 memory card
