PS2 undeletable corrupted data

  1. I was playing Ratchet & Clank with my friends, and one of their feet caught a wire and jerked my ps2. WE kept playing, and when they left, I tried to play single player. Only thing is, it said there was no save data, enen though I was halfway through. I tried to save, but it wouldn't let me. I went to browser, and the data was there, next to some corrupted data. I tried several times, and I couldn't delete it. I tried another game, and it worked fine. I have a 16 mb Max memory card.

    Hmm, I do not have a PS2 so I searched around as this seems like a rather simple problem...but it apparently does not have a simple solution (like an easy way to reformat). In some cases I read its just better buying a new memory card if you can't fix it :confused:.

    I'll link what I found:

    Maybe someone with a PS2 and more knowledge can add something I didn't find. Good luck, if some of those posts don't help search around more :) .

    Thanks. Looks like there's no way around buying a new card.

    I got a new card, and it did nothing. I finally decided to delete my data and start over.

    :( Were you far into the game? Replaying on one game doesn't seem to bad at least.

    15+ months have passed, and this problem is most certainly resolved or forgotten about...
    You will need a working memory card to save the memory to the other card.
    A reformat of the card will cause loss of the data, but will probably resolve the other problem.
