    I have just succesfully made a backup of my ps2 game. It works just fine without my memory card. But when i put my memory card in it just goes blank and nothing happens..

    how are you booting up your backup now?

    did you use to have an exploit on the mc and perhaps accidentally deleted it?

    I used nero to back up the game. I have played other original games with the memorycard in and then it works fine. If i leave the tray empty and turn on the ps2 it allso finds the memorycard and all the files on it. I just got it "modded" What do u mean with "exploit" ?? I boot up the ps2 just but putting in the empty disk in off condition and then turn the power on

    It's nothing to do with your chip then or the backups, if they work fine without the memory card its obviously a dodgy card. Although I notice you wrote that you put in the 'empty' disc like you would a normal game. I am near enough sure you used that as an example... However, if you actually are putting in a blank disc then that has to be your problem.

    Alternatively you can insert the memory card when you get to the title screen of the game. If it doesnt read it when you go to save you will know the card is dodgy. Or borrow a friends memory card and see what happens.

    ok i see what your saying. i thought you was booting your backup with a memory card exploit.

    it's strange that your game doesn't boot up when you put the mc in. try booting up your ps2 w/o a game and go in the browser and see what files are in your mc.

    does your game boot up if you have a different mc in it?

    Yep.. originals boot fine with the card in, but backups does not. Can it hurt the ps2 to put it in when the game is running? The card have worked fine for a loooong time with originals before i got it modded. Can some backups detect its not a original and therefor not load with memorycard in?? I only got 1 memorycard to play with.. Do u think a new card will help.. I mean, the old one worked fine with my originals...

    i haven't encounter a mc problem like that before. you can always try teggy's alternative method. just stick in the mc after the game loads up.
