    I have two dead ps2's,

    i think the laser needs replacing on the older one (Version 2 i think) with the smaller motherboard.

    The newer one needs a new BA5815FM chip.

    Can I either put the newer laser (version 5 i think) into the old ps2...
    or can I put the BA5810FP chip into the new ps2 to replace the BA5815FM chip.

    Any help would be appreciated, thank you.

    you cannot replace a ba5815fm chip with a ba5810fp chip. why im dont remember but theres something different inside it that makes it not compatible with the newer versions.

    You have to use a psone memory card to save psone games. You cant save psone games on a ps2 mem card.

    and if you have a memory manager you can store your ps1 saves on your ps2 card but you cant play them on them off the ps2 memory card (good for storage if your running out of room)
