Final Fantasy IX will not save

When you try to use the save point, it doesn't recognize a memory card is in the slot. Tried cleaning the slot and the card, even inserted a brand new card, saves other games, we even swapped out the consoles, is it the game itself?

Final Fantasy IX is a Playstation One Format Game, to save the game on a playstation 2 you will need a playstation one type memory card.

    If you are playing a PS ONE game you need a PS ONE memory card to save data on. Even if using a ps2.

It sounds like the ONLY constant in this is the GAME itself. On my playthrough, I noticed some catchy areas that caused similar problems (couldn't save, period!) and possibly could be remedied by playing through a different area of the game, it could cause the lens to move to a different part of the disc and free up your save problem...just a guess though.
I know for a fact that some of the FF series and specifically IX had some glitch problems. Try another copy of the game and see what happens. I'd be interested to know if it didn't work then.
On the up side, if you can just get past whatever disc you are on then you'll be free of that problem!

Final Fantasy 8 will not save to PS2 Memory Card it says "Failed to check memory card"


You need a PS1 Memory Card to save data from a PS1 game. You can not save FF8 to a PS2 memory card.

Final Fantasy PS2 problem, "failed to check memory card"


Im going to ask you the simplest of all questions, if you can't answer it then step away from the Playstation! Is it a PS1 or PS2 Memory card?

There is no reason why it won't work if it is a PS1 memory card unless the card itself is corrupt somehow

If it is a PS2 memory card use a PS1 card. FFVIII is a PS1 game. Therefore needs a PS1 card

PS2 Memory Card slot error! Data may be corrupt.?


as of right now there is no true fix to the problem. deleting the file does nothing to stop the future failing of future saving. the file is indeed not corrupted, however, there is something corrupt with the game and it doesn't matter if you buy a new one because it will happen again. it is the game! it is not the memory card, the save file, or your PS2. i recently purchased a new hobbit game to see if it would solve the saving issue, it did not. as soon as i got to a certain point during the Barrels Out of Bond chapter, it sent an error message first stating there was not enough room on the card, then later on it stated that the data was corrupt. there was enough memory and the file was not truly corrupt. as far as we know, there is no solution to this problem. many people have had this issue though and it would be nice if the game's developers would address the issue.

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,
