Im guessing that your ps2 is not from america and all you have to do is buy a disk called SWAP MAGIC you can get it on ebay or just type "swap magic" in a search engine. It contains 2 disks 1 for CD games and 1 for DVD games, you dont have to modify your PS2 in any way. (apart from removing the front of the tray but you can put that back anytime)

The infamous Red Screen of Desk -- A.K.A. Insert a Format Disc screen.

This screen is NOT asking for a disc to FORMAT the PS2. What it IS asking for is a PS2 or Playstation format [or a better word -- PS2 or Playstation TYPE disc. A disk with Playstation 1 or Playstation 2 type software on it -- in other words, a ps1 or ps2 game]. It's basically asking for a CD or DVD with software that the playstation can play. This red screen occurs when you insert an XBOX game or a burned/copied PS2 or PS1 game. What the PS2 is stating is that is cannot play this format [or type of] disc. It's asking you to insert a format [or type of] disc that it can recognize and use.

The most common reason for this screen appearing, if your PS2 does NOT have a mod chip, is a dirty lens. Try cleaning your lens and this should go away. What happens is that the lens becomes dirty and does not recognize the disc you inserted as being a PS2 or PS1 format [or type of] disc. So it's asking you to insert one. If your PS2 does have a mod chip installed, it could be a problem with the chip or the disc you burned. We don't install or sell mod chips, so we can't help you with that one.

I have Sony playstation 2, on connection to LCD it is asking insert play station format disc, what to do?


Seems that it is not recognizing the disc.

You have a few options:

1. Take it to someone to repair
2. Take the system apart yourself and try cleaning the laser
3. Try adjusting the POT on the laser (small screw on the laser that can be turned)
4. Replace the laser altogether.

Where can we get the a download to format a disc


Your PS2 doesn't need to format a disc. It's asking for a disc with Playstation 2 type software on it. In other words, it's looking for a PS2 game.

If you're putting a PS2 game in there and it's asking for one -- your laser is going out. It thinks the disc you put in is not a disc of PS2 type (PS2 format). You can find a quick tutorial on confirming this is the problem, and the laser (and repair) at the following page:

My ps2 screen says 'insert a playstation or a ps2 format disc


t's not asking for a specific disc, it's asking for a properly formatted PlayStation disc.

This message could mean that any one of several things has happened:
* You are trying to play a Japanese disc on a US PS2, or vice versa
* You are trying to play a game that has been copied onto a CD-R/DVD-R
* Your disc is scratched/dirty/otherwise unreadable
* Your disc isn't a format that the PS2 recognises (i.e. CD, DVD, PS CD-ROM, PS2 CD-ROM, PS2 DVD-ROM, etc)
* Your PS2 is broken
