My ps2 won't read the disc in the hard drive. It says on screen that there is a disc in the drive but every time I click on it, it kicks my back to the main screen that displays my memory card and the disc. Do you think I need to get the drive cleaned?

Only the first version of the PS3 had PS2 backwards compatibility, They did make a special edition Metal Gear Solid version with it included but other than that no other PS3 will play PS2 discs... No matter what Add-On you install.
I believe your PS2 has a short circuit and needs another motherboard.
If you can do this yourself, that's great. You can find Motherboards or
a PS2 like yours that will not read discs or has Disc Read Errors but will
boot up for about $25 on Ebay. If you're not comfortable with Changing
out your motherboard, then click on the "Repair directory" at the bottom
of this screen. On the Repair Directory Screen, select Video Game
Consoles. Choose a good Repair shop.
This problem is caused by a loose drive belt in the eject mechanism, you need to open the ps2 and replace the drive belt...
Take off the top cover, then take off the cover from the top of the dvd drive mech... then carefully remove the disc tray and you should see the belt near the front. Replace that belt and it should work fine again
On a couple of rare occasions the drive motor has been found to be faulty, but usually replacing the belt will fix it
Your console is an old one,and your lens too is probably weak.Try cleaning your PS2 lens Watch Video at end of solution to clean your PS2 at home.... You can also follow these steps to make your PS2 to play GTA San Andreas:
Turn on your PS2 without inserting any disc.
On menu screen go to [options] by pressing 'triangle' button.

Then insert the game disc.
Turn off your PS2.
Press and Hold the [Reset Button] till the blue light turns on.Release the Reset button and press it again.
It will take a bit more time to play game,but first i recommend you to clean your PS2 lens,watch this video.
I've got something else to add.......you can follow above steps to play DVD movies if your PS2 dont play any.....!!!
