You will need to go out and buy a psONE memory card or in some cases you can format a ps2 memory card to keep playstation one game saves on the card.

They are really cheap on ebay and amazon. Even a generic should be fine.

Comment if you need any help or have any more questions.

Format ps2 memory card


It's automatic. Remember, that you can't use a PS1 memory card to save PS2 games. A lot of people sell PS1 cards trying to pass them off as PS2. Watch out for them. They will say on the back for what system. When you play a game, it will tell you that there is no saved game on the card, and ask you if you want to make one.

My ps2 slim memory cards work on the main screen, but i'm trying to play a ps1 game and as i try to save the game, it says that there is no memory card present. I bought another card with more memory.....


You can't save PS1 games on a PS2 memory card. You need to buy a PS1 memory card to save PS1 games. The PS1 card will plug into the standard memory slot on a PS2, but the insides are different.

Mt PS2 is not reading any memory card, not even a new one. What can I do?


Take it into a games store and get them to try and fix it. (They will most likely take it in and test the console out and put one of their memory cards in and try it), and they will try to sort out the problem. =]

Ps1 disc playing in ps2


Are you inserting a PS2 or a PS1 memory card?
PS1 games can't use a PS2 card because they don't "understand" how to read them.
To save a PS1 game on a PS2 you will need a PS1 memory card.

I hope this helps, I assume this is what you are referring to with your question.

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
