Yeah, i have the same problem with GT4, and i tried taking out the memory card, still clicks and the disk never spins. I even have guitar hero 2 and that works no prob.

Try starting the game without the memory card in if it works then you know it was a memory card problem if not then disregard and buy a new ps2 lol

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.

    try using a cd cleaner that also aligns the laser, as allignment may be the fault, if it's struggling to read data.

My gt4 used to play in my ps2 slim,but now it wont play at all

First thing I would do is test it in another ps2 to isolate if the problem is with the disc or the ps2. If it's the disc have it buffed at game stop. If it's the ps2 try a lens cleaner.
Thank you,

Recently was given a PS2 (slim model scph77001) which was barely used. It will read Gran turismo, but will not read any others (tried 4 different games). All games are standard retail and brandnew. It...

Yes the problem is the laser. It's on its way out (and is almost completely out). You can find a new laser for the 77001 console at the following page. They also sell the completely laser assembly which includes all moving parts in there:

I had a gran turismo 4 that went out so I bought new and it does not act now, even though it is quite new

do you have a slimline ps2? the problem is more than likely with the drivers in your console. do all your other games work just fine? only gt4 thats not working? gt4 is a duel layered disc unlike most games.
my console won't play it either. plays all other games, even ones on the blue discs wiv no problem.

Gran turismo 4

i have the same problem, used to work fine now it doesn't and i've bought 4 copies of the game! gt4 is one of a few games that are on a dual layered disc, witch is why other games work but gt4 don't, so you would natraly think the problem lies in the game disc itself. ive been on the phone to sony and acording to them its because the drivers in my system are knacked. for £50 they will come to my house and take my ps2, and replace it wiv one they have referbushed. kinda steep when i could go to game station and buy one for £20 and still get to keep my console.
aprently this problem is more common on the slimline consoles.
what do you have?
i have a slimline SCPH-70003 witch ive owned from new and taken good care of.
its anoying cos out of the 80 something games i have, my favriout, gt4, is the only one the wont work!

Playstation2 DVD read error ''The disc could not be read''

I've encountered similar problem with my PS2. I really can't play the disc that I bought. There might be some burning problem that difficult to read by your PS2. What I did I've tried to copy it and burn in to a better DVD disc and it works. Try it.
