First see if it plays cds. If so, try DVD movies. If so, try a game. If it plays cds but not DVD's or games, either the laser needs to be adjusted or replaced. I got a few PS2's from friends that they used ALOT. Turned out the lasers were bad. Memory cards only store game saves and such and don't help with media booting.

I have a play station 2 and I like to play Crash Bandicoot 2.Gortex strikes back,but the memory card won't work is this because it is a play station 2 memory card. thank you John.


First, check to see if your memory card has any room on it by turning on your PS2 while there is no game in the machine. Select your memory card, and see how many blocks are left on it, then see how many blocks are required to save Crash Bandicoot 2 games (should tell you on the game's box).

If there isn't enough room, delete some saves to make room.

If there is room, or you cannot view the saved data on your memory card then try putting it in the other slot. If putting it in the other slot does not fix the problem then your card is either damaged or the data is corrupted. In either case, you will simply need to use a different memory card.

I play God of war game on my play station 2 but i can not save it on memory card i had memory card 8MB. can someone help me ?


Many people have this issue with God of War and God of War II. It is a glitch and some have found that using a 64MB memory card instead of an 8MB memory card has helped but not many have had such success. The only solution would either be to play the game all the way through in one go, while attempting to save at all the save points possible or to attempt to take the game back to where you got it and request a replacement game.

How do I insert memory card into nintendo 64? bought used unit for grandson and was thinking of getting a memory card becuase it seems it supposed to have one I bought a used donkey kongN64 and now it says...


The memory card plugs into the back of the controller.. i believe. No you do not need a memory card to play games, but you want one if you want to save your progress in games. Without a memory card to save progress, you will have to start a game over everytime you want to play it.

I am sorry I don't know what the expansoin pack is.... maybe a memory card, or rumble pack.

Playing of pirated dvd movies in sony play station slim


This may be because DVD movies have a reigion code on the disk and on a pirated disk this code may be removed. When the ps2 fails to find the code, it aborts playing the disk. I believe the regional lockout for games (which i assume you have disabled) is a different system to DVD lockouts.
