You need to get a mod chip installed in your ps2, without it the ps2 won't get the boot information it needs........This is the coding that doesn't get transfered when you burn you original.

So the mode chip supplies this information to the Ps2 before the game loads.

That is how I understand it anyway. Hope this helps guy. :)

Your how to format win7 c drive only and wnat to install xp . plz tell me


If you have a win xp disk you need to put it in the drive then reboot the computer. It will say press any key to boot from cd. Once you boot to the cd it will walk you step by step on installing win xp. Be careful when it comes to the part that asks to format disk because you will lose all data. Make sure you have everything you want to keep backed up on another drive or disks before you reformat.
Good Luck!

How do I download photos off my computer to disc so I can keep them on a disc


Put your blank disk in the drive. When you select the drive in my computer it will ask if you want to format the disk, choose yes. After complete you can just simply select the pictures you want and copy and paste them to the cd/dvd disk.

Disk is asking to be formatted - already been in use


this could be a help to you,first off most,cds, and memory disk,get scratched or worn out,that causes errors or corrupt file readings. so thats why it asked you to format,formating helps clean the drive up,like a tune up on and old car.and if you dont and try to put high grade gas in before the tune up your still going to have the same problem,so in saying you have to put the old one back in,format it. and then put the new one in after you completed formating the old one.good luck,hope that helped you.

Maxell cd-r 700mb- where have my pictures gone??!


use cdr's and allow multisession in your settings. Get rid of roxio and use nero 7.5 or above. Roxio tries to format cd-rws all the time if you have all features installed. bakup program keeps wanting to format cdrw. so use cdr's instead..Use the data disk option. That will copy your pics fine.

PS2


Some PS2's have a problem with reading certain Blue disks. You have two options:
1. I believe that you can send it back to Sony to repair (they will make you pay for the shipping)
or
2. If the disc is just for install, you can put a little piece of tape on the inner ring(the tape will touch the top and bottom of the inner plastic ring) and it should read the disc.

I had this problem also years ago. The most steadfast way would be to send it back to be fixed.

Floopy drive


Sounds like you have a bad floppy drive. If you are unable to read a disk and it wants to format it so it can read it try letting it format a floppy with no data on it or with floppy you don't care about. If it can format and you can read and write to it, then bad disks. If not then you know you have a bad floppy drive. Replace and enjoy.
