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. :)

My son's ps2 asks for a ps2 format disk and I'd like to know if there's a site where I can download it for free


Hi there, what your PS2 is actually asking for is a PS2 disc of the correct format, not a disc to format your PS2. Usual causes of this are :

1. Laser faulty or dirty discs.
2. Trying to play a copied game on an unmodified console.
3. Trying to play a copied game on a modified console where the copied game has been burnt to the incorrect disc type
4. Trying to play a disc from a different region, i.e a disc from the US will not play on a UK console.

Hope this helps

I keep cleaning my disk but my xbox said I need to keep clean the disk and i dont know what to use.


I had the same problem with my disk and i had to replace my disk as a result of the disk needing to be cleaned. But if you do not wish to buy a new disk try going to the video store and asking them if you could borrow a disk cleaning clothto clean your disk. And if that fails aswell try not playing your failed disk game for 5 days+. =]

Just hooked up the ps2 and it's asking for a ps or ps2 format disk?


To use the system you need official Sony Playstation or Playstation 2 game disks. Backup disks will not work without hacking your system, and are illegal.

Original Playstation (one) disks are hard to find at stores, but PS2 / Playstation 2 disks can be found cheaply at stores like 'Game Stop' or 'Walmart'

Good Luck

Ea Games NHL 09 and NHL 10 won't play


I would recommend going back to the shop you got the game from and asking for a new copy, it seems more likely to be a disc problem than a console one, and just check that it is the correct format for your region.

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.
