I bought the Multi-Tap. I have tried to set it up for 4 players and it doesn't funtion. I have the right game and still it doesn't even respond. I checked the Version and it was a right one. I plugged it into Port 1 and plug 4 controllers into the Multi-tap and a memory card into Multi-tap's Slot A. What should I do? All I am guessing is that the product was deffective. Am I missing something?

The infamous Red Screen of Desk -- A.K.A. Insert a Format Disc screen.

This screen is NOT asking for a disc to FORMAT the PS2. What it IS asking for is a PS2 or Playstation format [or a better word -- PS2 or Playstation TYPE disc. A disk with Playstation 1 or Playstation 2 type software on it -- in other words, a ps1 or ps2 game]. It's basically asking for a CD or DVD with software that the playstation can play. This red screen occurs when you insert an XBOX game or a burned/copied PS2 or PS1 game. What the PS2 is stating is that is cannot play this format [or type of] disc. It's asking you to insert a format [or type of] disc that it can recognize and use.

The most common reason for this screen appearing, if your PS2 does NOT have a mod chip, is a dirty lens. Try cleaning your lens and this should go away. What happens is that the lens becomes dirty and does not recognize the disc you inserted as being a PS2 or PS1 format [or type of] disc. So it's asking you to insert one. If your PS2 does have a mod chip installed, it could be a problem with the chip or the disc you burned. We don't install or sell mod chips, so we can't help you with that one.

Please insert ps2 format disc?


Try inserting the disc in your computer. If it reads its fine. Then look if the Slus...... is compatible.maybe thats why it doesn't play. your ps2 must have an old bios system even if slim.

Formatting


Hi,

By formatting a disk, your actually creating a Blank-Disk.

The PS2 won,t read a blank disk.

is your console Saying " disk format Unknown "

This is a completely different Issue.

In this case, the PS2 does not play this type of Disk.

PS2 consule says read disc error for every game inserted


I helped a friend fix his PS2 with these symptoms using this webpage:

http://arstechnica.com/articles/paedia/hardware/ps2.ars

This is not to say yours has the same problems, but it's probably worth a try.

Good luck.
