Ps2 start up screen is ok then brand name on screen ok then goes to memory card and disc screen wont enter game. will play music cd's though


the problem might be your cd drive. the lens may be broken. I suggest you go to a technician and convert your ps2 to harddrive. it loads games much faster and you wont need cd to play games.
also if you want to play games using psp slim here are some tutorials on how to do that.
PART 1 PART 2
hope it helps.

I ve got sony ps2 in india and i always have to get a new gaming cd. is there any option to unlock my ps2 so that i even use pirated cds on it.


If your PS2 is made pre-2009 (has a manufacturer number less than 9xxxxxxxx) then you can use a bootloader to unlock the USB and hardrive to play "backed up" games and AVI movies.

You will need on of these things:
1) an original copy of 007 Agent Under Fire or an original PS1 game, to use as a "trigger" disk.
2) a original copy of Gameshark, SwapMagic, or CodeBreaker for PS2 (DL'ed copies wont work)

and you will need:
1) a memory card plugged into your PS2 slot 1
2) a USB drive

Now do this:

Load the boatloader ELF file from a burner "backup copy" of your 007 disk (using the "disk swap trick" on your "sensor-modded" PS2. I used ESR Disk Patcher and Apache V1.1 to alter the TOC values of the ELF file and "patch" the ISO file before burning, and I used the disk swap trick after playing level one of the game, saving, and then loading the "driving level" (level 2).

OR use SwapMagic or similar tool to load the bootloader. You can find Youtube videos detailing this process.

Install Free McBoot onto your memcard using the bootloader. You can use the "noobie package", use google to find this and put the files onto yor USB card. Voila! Now you can play AVI files or "backed up" games from USB or hard-drive, among other fun things.

My ps3 wont load ps3 games


Hi,

This problem is common with the PS3 and typical of a failure of the bluray drive. It can sometimes be resolved by cleaning the laser pickup lens but often the lens itself needs to be replaced.

For a full breakdown on the issues involved please view this FixYa Tip.

Thanks for using FixYa.

What software can i use to play files from my flash drive using a ps2? Can i use Action replay or codebreaker or any other software?


well i would have to say that playing a game from a usb drive is not dependable, think about this for a second. The playstation 2 would have to somehow read the files on the usb drive, but then also take information off the drive to run the game. that usb port wont handle that much data, its just not possible to have ur ps2 trying to run a file on something that can only send so much data to it. Even a HardMOD[ meaning a chip is installed physicaly] its still hard to imagine someone trying to make that possible, but see if you have a Big ps2 then a hardrive is the only option, see the old ps2s were supposed to have a harddrive option but it endded up being a part of a game FFXI, so if you have a hardrive for the ps2 then you simply SoftMod it[ Software that mods the ps2 either threw the gamegenie or codebreaker and other programs, but the new ones dont have that option of a harddrive and if you have one you are out of luck using a harddrive as storage, but there is something called disc swapping.

see when you open ur ps2 tray theirs three or two buttons inside the slim ps2 that tell the ps2 when the dvd tray is open and thus it wont read a game till you close it.

but by tapping those key buttons down{ google how to do this,] you can burn a ps2 game and then with one legit ps2 game you first use the legit game and let it read then swap out the legit with any burned game and then one more swap and it allows you two play any burned game with just one legit game

Corrupted Data on PS2 memory card


I don't know if you have been trying to delete the data with a game inside the ps2, but in case you have, try this.

Turn on the system WITHOUT a game inside, select BROWSER, the MEMORY CARD ICON, and i believe the corrupted data icon is a grayish black square. Choose options and then delete.
I am also heard that inserting a music cd will work as well, probably just has to not be a game inside the ps2.

Corrupted data comes from turning off the ps2, or removing the memory card while the game loads or saves data to/from memory card.
I really hope that helps, ps2's are meant to be played! Good luck.

Hi

I believe the SCPH-version 30000 through 50001 use the UBD ports for Playstation Specific Devices like the eyetoy.  The Slim PS2 has is more diversified and can read USB devices just like a computer.  To get details on your PS2, you can get detailed instructions at www.playstation.com.  sign up and go to Support for your older version PS2 and read up on connecting to the USB port.  You may find out how to actually do it. I have not tried my self.  I wish I could help more.

PS2 wont load PS2 games


you need to get a laser disk which cleans the inside of the ps2 especially for ps2 games and if that doesnt work then you need to get someone to undo all the case and clean it themselves hope that helps :)
