This is a very common problem, if you have a DVD-ROM drive on your computer you can put the Disc in and go to my computer right click on the ROM and click format. This should work

Am unable to play games on PS2. Says I need a PS2 format disc. Have just brought some games from USA and they have a different format from our NZ ones.


When you buy games from different countries you won't be able to play them as the discs are region locked. The games you bought are only playable in the USA. You will have to buy another copy of each game from NZ.

What is a PS2 format disk and where do I buy one.


Hello thompsonfc,
A PS2 format disk is basically any game disc that is created for use in the Playstation 2 console. Any PS2 game that you buy in the region where you bought your console should be compatible. Certain PS1 games and PS2 games from different regions will cause this error to display. Send a reply if you need any further information or please rate this solution if you found it helpful. Thanks!

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

Hey buddy FORMAT DISC means PAL games or NTSC games format.

There are 2 formats dics in this world for the PS1,PS2,PSP,Wii,Gamecube.etc

They are [NTSC] and [PAL]

[NTSC] is for North America and Japan ONLY. [NTSC] is Original games.

[PAL] is for Asia Only. Which is copied games form the Originals.

I need to know were did you bought PS2 Console from ?

If you bought it in North America or Japan then you have to buy and play Original games from North America Only.

If you bought your PS2 in Asia then you can play copied games.

It is most likely your PS2 is a NTSC, your PS2 cant read any PAL games so it will say format dics.

Slimline PS2 stops and makes funny noise during some Singstar songs


Hello Hewitt,

Your Laser is most likely the cause of this problem. The lens and its frame work could be melting. This happens to all Slimline PS2's. To find out if this is your problem, you must take to console case apart to get a straight on view of the laser. Use magnifying glass to see the lens up close. It helps to also have a flashlight to shine on the lens while looking at it. You can tell if it is dirty or meltng very easy this way. Clean the lens if it is dirty. Use Glass Cleaner and q-tip. If the lens is not dirty or melting, clean the worm gear that moves the disc back and forth.
