GTA: Vice City loading problem

The memory card that I'm using has two saves at two different points in the game. When I try to load the second save, the screen goes black. However,when I load the first save, everything's fine. What's up with that?? Thanks.

Could be corrupted, try copying the second save on a different memory card, if that works, then it's your memory card, if it still goes black the file is corrupted.

Does the save location exist?
Make sure that these two files exist on your computer:
for GTA III
My Documents\GTA3 User Files
for GTA: VC
My Documents\GTA Vice City User Files

Have you tried downloading save files off the internet to check if it's the applications ability to read?

Also, check if your antivirus is blocking the application from reading the memory.

Saved games not running

Try going to the start menu and loading a different game, namely the one you put on there, from the selections. Hope that works for you.

Vice City Ps2 game not working...

Sound like either a corrupted memory card saved game (your Vice City save), or more likely, your laser lens needs cleaning or replacing. First, try taking out the game, go into the Browse menu (with your memory card still plugged in) and find your Vice City save file in your memory card... delete it. Now put the game back in and let it start a new game. See if you can play it, save it, load it, drive all around, go through a "cut scene" (video story part at the beginning of each mission), etc. If you can do all that, it was most likely the corrupt saved game. It does happen on occasion with Vice City.

The lens issue is a little more detailed. You can relatively easily clean the laser, but you have to be SUPER careful with it. Don't touch it with your fingers/skin at all. You can find guides to cleaning the lens on the net. There's even a video or two of it on Youtube. If that doesn't work, your lens MIGHT need to be replaced. Best bet is to take it to either Sony or a TV/Game shop in your area to have it fixed up. If you're very experienced with electronics work, you can also look up FAQs on how to change the laser yourself. You can get a new one on eBay for around $8 or $9.

Above all, try the SIMPLEST and safest things first. And PLEASE don't go rooting around inside your PS2 unless you're well informed on the task at hand and very experienced at working with electronics. You could permanently damage the console if you're not.

Also, You WILL VOID your warranty if you open the case at all.

Good luck! =)

I put in some cheats for kingdom hearts 2 and when i want my game to load it wont let me.

This can happen with some games when cheats are used usally you get a warning like in GTA Vice City when you input a cheat a warning comes up, telling you it could affect your saved game and will not go unless you do not save, i am afraid your best bet for it to work is to start a new game and delete the old one that wont work this is the best bet and i wouldnt use cheats with it again as a safeguard unless you do not save.

No screen or sound

I have had this problem numerous times. It's a glitch in the game, best I can figure. It corrupts your saved game. You might be able to go back to an earlier save and play from there. But the best solution, if that doesn't work, is to take out the game disc, turn on the ps2, click on Browse (with your memory card plugged in) and delete the Vice City file(s) on there. Then put your disc back in and start over from the beginning. It sucks, I know. I've had to do it. And once I was almost to a 100% completion. Bleh. =( Sorry.

No screen or sound after loading

make sure that the memory card is in straight and all the way clean the copper connections and and make sure the memory card port on the console is clear of dirt and dust to ensure data is exchanged properly. use a lens cleaner for disk players and computers ect. and clean the lens with it because sometimes the console might not read the game correctly and load data wrong. make sure your data on your memory its not corrupt it can still be corrupt sometimes even if it doesn't say it is if nothing here helps i would just start over and make a new save game file. :)
