Recently, I recieved the new PS2 Holiday Demo Disc in the mail from Sony. Eager to play, I tossed the disc in my PS2. I played all of the games happily, and it wasn't until a week later that I realized my memory card had been completely wiped out of it's memory. I was very frustrated and curious as to why this had occured and went to find out by looking on the Internet. During my search for the truth, I found kidzworld.com and the article on my problem. I thank you for informing me but I wonder if you could answer a question. I heard from someone that if you send your defected disc in to Sony, they will give you a free game as an apology. I am wondering if this is true, and if it is, could you find the address to which I send my disc?

Man this really sucks. I had almost all my games either completed or close to it. Like Star Ocean and Final Fantasy 10 and 10-2. But no, Capcom screwed it all up again. This is the second time something like this has happened.
