What can I do if I have problems with my PlayStation 2 Memory Card?

What can I do if I can’t save my game?

  1. Make sure you are saving a PlayStation 2 software title to the Memory Card (8MB) for PlayStation 2.
  2. Confirm that you are using an officially licensed PlayStation memory card by looking for the official PlayStation logo. SIEE cannot guarantee the reliable performance of unlicensed memory cards. Note: In the past, 8MB Memory Cards were manufactured for use with PlayStation 2 by other companies. As long as cards contain the official PlayStation logo, they are licensed products approved for use.
  3. Be sure the Memory Card is inserted securely into the Memory Card slot on the console.
  4.  Follow the proper save procedures for the specific game you are trying to save. Refer to the manual for the software title for saving instructions if needed.
  5. Check to see if there is sufficient space on your Memory Card to store your data.
  6. If possible, test the Memory Card on another PlayStation 2 by inserting the card to see if it functions properly. If the card does not function properly, it might need to be replaced.

If you experience this issue with the same title multiple times, you may want to contact the publisher of that title for more information. If the title is not published by SIEE, you will need to contact the publisher directly.
