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. =]

First off, make sure you have the right memory card for the game - PS1 games will require PS1 memory cards even though you're playing on a PS2. If it's a PS2 game, you must have a PS2 memory card - PS1 memory cards won't work with it.

Assuming you've got the right cards for your system, there are two tests you need to perform:

1. Borrow a memory card from a friend and try saving files to it and then reading them. If this does not work, your PS2 is probably broken and you'll need to get it fixed.

2. If other memory cards work in your system, go over to a friend's house and test your memory card in their system. If this does not work, you know that your memory card is busted and needs to be replaced.

SOURCE: PS2 memory card

Have you tried both Memory Card slots? Maybe Final Fantasy Tactices doesn't understand a 16 MB Memory Card since the official Sony ones are only 8 MB's. Maybe you can try one of those?

Let me know if this helps. Please rate.

Greetings,

DarkNeogen.

New ps1 mem card wont formaton ps2...


I have read that some manufacture PS1 memory cards will not work properly on the PS2. I would suggest trying another PS2 to see if it's a problem with your specific PS2. If the memory card doesn't pop up on the browser screen of another PS2, it could be defective or incompatible. If it does work on another PS2, it could be something weird going on with your memory card slot on your PS2.

My playstation keeps saying to put in a memory card.. even though I have done


did you try reading the memory card without any game discs put in via the ps2 menu?

is your memory card working properly? could be a corrupted memory card or a faulty memory card slot.
try putting a friend's memory card on that same slot.
if it works... then your memory card is gone bad...
if it doesnt work...then your memory card slot has gone bad.

else try putting your memory card in your friend's ps2, see if that ps2 reads your memory card. if it does...then your memory card slot has gone bad.

PS2 Memory Card Read Error


I must assume that the card you are talking about is not a Sony brand memory card. Sony Playstations are very picky with memory cards and can cause strange malfunctions even permanent damage if they are not Sony brand or Sony approved memory cards. Sorry that doesn't fix it, but my brother lost his by using a non Sony memory card. It fried the machine.

PS2 Disk won't spin


what may have happened is that the saved files for GT4 on your memory card have now become corrupt, and the disk when put in the suysstem is trying to read the data from the card, simply deleting your saved GT4 data from the memory card should allow the disk to play as normal.
