it's pretty easy to format a PS2 Memory Card you simply need a nifty
little program that the guys over @ ps2newz
all you need to do is burn this program to a cd-rom and boot it up in
note: this requires that you have a modchip installed in your ps2 or
use a swap magic cd to be able to boot self recorded cds
program has loaded press start, wait up to one minute and boom ... you're
you even want to format a memory card?
well I bought a 32mb memory card and it got shipped unformatted, so
I had to chose to either look for a method to "fix" the card
or return it. since I'm impatient I chose the first method and suceeded.
also this might work to repair "damaged" memory cards and
so on ...
hope it helps somebody.
