Question about Sony PlayStation 2 Slimline Console

2 Answers

My ps2 memory card continues to corrupt data.

Hello, my name is Jeremy and my playstation 2 has once again for the third time corrupted my game data on the memory card. This last time it was with Need 4 speed pro street. I had over 21 days worth of playing time on this one game file. I had used some cheat codes on the file. But I don't know if that is what caused the data to become corrupted. I did not turn off the console while it was saving or loading so i am a little stumped. Please help me figure out why the data corrupted and how i can possibley keep this from happening next time I"ve invested so much time into one game just to lose it all.

Try using a different memory card. The problem you have could be the card, but it could also be the playstation. The cheapest way to find out is to use a new or borrowed memory card that you know is good.

Play a game for a good while and try to simulate your problem.

If a different card does not have this problem, you know that the playstation console is fine.

If the problem happens again you will need the playsation repaired. That is the bad news. There are no repair centers except for the Sony factory repair center in Mexico that can get parts for these playstations.

That is the way Sony has set this up for the Playstation, I guess it saves them money.

I hope you found this information helpful, and if so, a good rating would be appreciated and even appropriate, even though the news is not really very good.

You can even call Sony to verify what I have said.

Thanks, and good luck, I hope you only need a new memory card.

Let me know if you need any more help.

Dave

I need to delete currupted data on my ps2 memory card


Plug in the PS2 memory card and dont put in a disk,and hit the power button once,like you would to start the machine.Then a screen with flying orbs(or cubes I cannot remember)should show up in the backround.Then hit the X button to enter the next menu.It should show your memory card,or two if you have two in.Select the memory card and hit X.After that it will dive into the files.Go to the memory that is corrupt and hit X,then find the delete function and hit X again.The memorys icon should fly in circles and get smaller,like its getting flushed down a invisible toilet.If you do not know the corrupted data,you may have to go through and delete memory untill you find the corrupted file.Also corrupted data can interfere with gameplay and make it impossilbe to load some games.I hope it helped.

My Playstation 2 memory card has corrupted data.


well, if it only does this error for one game then maybe the problem is in the game itself? Is the CD a real one? or is it copied with a golden back?
if it is copied then such things can definitely happen.

Memory Card Corrupted


you cannot save another file until you delete previous one.Corruption occurs if the memory card is removed from console or if you reset the game while saving or loading game remember this also happens when you are saving or loading game and electricity turns off.

Memory Card Corrupted


These cards have become so cheap it would be better just to buy a new one and use that as backup for the non corrupt data.

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.
