FFVIII not saving

By LordScythe

  1. I got a used copy of Final Fantasy 8 for Christmas, from Vintage Stock, and it seems that the game won't save to my memory card (PS2). When I try to save, a message on the screen says "failed to check memory card".
    The disk seems to be in fine condition, so I'm wondering if it's my memory card, or the disk itself? Is there any way to fix it besides getting a new memory card/copy of the game?
    Thanks

    Do I need a PS1 memory card?

    Yes you do. A ps2 memorycard is backwards incompatible so go get a ps1 card. It costs like 10 bucks nowadays.

    So where could I get one? Would Vintage Stock or EB Games carry them?

    Quite possibly. Target and walmart may have them as well. If all else fails... You do it EBay...

    Target, EB and even Radio Shack have memory cards for the PS1
