I have a fat ps2 and just installed a 100 gig Maxtor hard drive. My system has not been modded in any other way. I need to format it but my kids got into my cds and dvds and scrached most of them. I have Action replay max, game shark, and spark magic but due to scratches the ps2 keeps telling me my disk isn't ps2 compatible but when I put them in my pc I have no issue reading the files and even making a backup which is useless without modding my system. Is there another way to format my hard drive with my pc or anything else. I just want the games I have on the hard drive to preserve my disks that are still good for my kids. I'm not rich enough to just go out and replace the disks to format without saving for a while. I also tried the 3 programs on 6 other ps2's 3 were new and It does the same thing. Any help or info would be greatly appreciated.
