Get the scoop on what game demo disc will wipe out your saved games and how to avoid the problem!

Here's a nightmare for ya - you're playing your fave PS2 game, unlocking extra levels and wicked bonuses. You take a break and toss in a demo CD, the next thing you know your Memory Card is wiped clean! All your saved games are gone and you have to start over again at level 1. D'oh! Here's how it can happen and how to avoid it.

The Great Memory Card Wipeout!

If you're a Playstation Underground member, watch out for the Holiday 2004 Demo Disc. The disc is 90% safe, but if you try to play the Viewtiful Joe 2 game demo, it'll toast your Memory Card.

Saving Your Saved Games

This is the easy part. To avoid losing all your game files there are two things you can do:
  • 1. Remove your Memory Card before you put the disc in your PS2.
  • 2. Don't play the Viewtiful Joe 2 game demo!
    Every other game demo is fine, it's just the one from Capcom that'll eat your saved games.

    Have you had this happen to you? Email if it has!

    1Hi Gary,
    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?

    Hey Brooke,
    Ouch! Bummer to hear that the Holiday Demo Disc got your Memory Card. :o(
    Good news though - Sony IS giving out free games to say sorry. I called 'em and checked out some of the info. You can take a look at what to do, and what games you can get, right here:

  • Free Games for PS2 Gamers with Wiped Memory Cards!

    Good luck!
    Gary

    1I lost everything on my memory card and I found your information, so I called Sony and they are sending a free game as an apology. They were very apologetic and send they would send the game if I return the disc. Thanks for your help! A free game is better then nothing.

    1Man 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.
