My DS has just bought a 2nd hand playstation from a car boot sale.
Entirely predictably, the blasted thing is not working and I think that it is because the memory card is missing.
Now, I am completely ignorant of these things and was not best pleased when I found out that DS had wasted his pocket money on this. However I have a rather tearful 8 year old here and want to help him get it working.
hi, the memory card just stores games so that you can continue playing later on, saves high scores etc, it wont stop the playstation from working, im afraid if its not working its because of another reason, they dont actually come with memory cards, you buy them seperately, you can play without a memory card.
It should work without a memory card. But some games need one to play so best place to get them is any game store or anywhere that sells playstations. They range in price, cheapest being around 8 quid. But they last for a very long time. Not sure if that's any help.
It shouldn't matter if it is a PS1 or PS2. They should both work without a memory card. Are you sure that you have the right format of game in there? A PS2 game willnot work on a PS1 machine. If the console works you should be able to play a CD on it. Or you maybe had a dodgy seller?(I hope not!)
