Playstation 2 (PS2) Format CD

My son has an issue with his PS2 ... and it requires the Playstation Format disk/CD to resolve the issue. He can't find it ... and everyone he asks who has a PS2 can't find theirs either. Does anyone know how we can get our hands on one ?

Welcome to the forum time2smile, for some strange reason I can’t find mine one either I think the Playstation Format disk is the original PS2 game DVD or CD. I think your PS2 is looking for a original PS2 game DVD or CD, just try and put a original one in and see if that resolves the issue.

Is this a hard drive issue? In that case, maybe you just have to put in a hard-drive enabled game? I haven't played with the PS2 hard drive enough.

There is no OTHER problem with a PS2 which requires anything called a "format disc". In fact, I've never heard of such a thing.

If you put in a backup disc without a modchip the consol asks for a playstation format disc (in other words an original playstation disc)

I have come into the same issue. It asks for a PS or PS2 format disk. This happened when I inserted Final fantasy tactics (an old PS game) When I put in other games it works but not that one, is there a way to fix it so I can play FFT?

Re: Playstation 2 (PS2) Format CD

I'm sorry, but this is just too ridiculous. Someone should have figured this out. A Playstation / Playstation 2 format disc is a disc in the format used by the PS/PS2, in other words, an original, from the manufacturer PS/PS2 disc. Tell your son to quit bootlegging video games, its illegal.
Some older PS games don't work on the the PS2 (my FFVIII discs don't, but dino crisis I/II do, and I haven't tried FFVII)
Also, if the laser is dirty, it will cause this too. The alcohol swabs they use in hospitals work great for cleaning the laser (available in walgreens).

I believe if you make a backup copy of a game you OWN it's not illegal as long as you don't sell the copied one
