I have had no problem with my ps2 since I bought it a long time ago. A couple weeks ago I tryed to play a new game I bought, when it started to check my memory card a message came up and said "no memory card detected." I started the PS2 with no disc inserted so I could get to the memory card menu, but I got the same message again. I have tried the memory card in each slot, and I have tried everything else I can think of but no matter what I do I can't get the PS2 to even recognize my card. No matter what I try I just get the same message, "no memory card detected." I don't have another PS2, and I don't know anyone that has a PS2 so I can't test the card out on another machine, and I don't want to buy another card to try and then find out it's the machine that is busted, thus wasting money on a new memory card. If anyone has ever heard of a problem like this please let me know, I really want to fix my memory card so I can start playing my games again, especially God of War 2. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
