The system doesn't recognize memory card in slot. If I hold it in REAL firmly we may be able to save a game on occasion
Playstation 2 does not recognise any memory cards in either slot, I have tried several to no avail - it just says no memory card inserted.

Re: PS2 Memory Card Read Error
Assuming you've got the right cards for your system, there are two tests you need to perform:
1. Borrow a memory card from a friend and try saving files to it and
then reading them. If this does not work, your PS2 is probably broken
and you'll need to get it fixed.
2. If other memory cards work in your system, go over to a friend's
house and test your memory card in their system. If this does not work,
you know that your memory card is busted and needs to be replaced.

Go to the "Game" menu in the XMB and choose "Memory Card Utility (PS/PS2)"
If the adaptor is working you should see an item called "Memory Card (PS2)". Below the title should be the size of the card and how much is in use-in my case "1334 KB / 7998 KB"
Press the controller's Triange button to get the Memory Card options. Select "Copy"
Select "Yes" to confirm the copy from memory card to the hard drive
Enter a name for the new Internal Memory Card that will be created on the hard drive, or leave the default name. I named mine "Original PS2 saves". Select "OK"
The data will be copied. If the amount of saved data is too large, the system will automatically create multiple internal memory cards
You may be informed that the new internal card has been assigned to a "slot". These slots are an emulation of the physical memory card slots in the PS2, so similarly you may only have two internal/virtual cards "plugged in" (assigned) at a time. The internal memory card must be assigned to slot 1 or 2 to be available when you run PS2 games
The new internal memory card should now be showing in the XMB, under Game > Memory Card Utility
Selecting the card will allow you to browse the game saves that were copied across!
I must assume that the card you are talking about is not a Sony brand memory card. Sony Playstations are very picky with memory cards and can cause strange malfunctions even permanent damage if they are not Sony brand or Sony approved memory cards. Sorry that doesn't fix it, but my brother lost his by using a non Sony memory card. It fried the machine.
