If you have one of the slim models that has the pop open lid, first thing to try would be cleaning the lens. Usually, I use either isp alcohol or windex and a cotton swab. Just dip the cotton swab in the cleaner and squeeze out the excess liquid. Then GENTLY rub it over the len and give it about 5 min to make sure it dries.

If it's one of the original fat ps2s you may want to try one of the commercial lens cleaning discs (though I haven't had much luck with disc based cleaners.)

If cleaning the lens doesn't resolve it, it's most likely the optical assembly (that houses the lens) has worn out or possibly even the spinning motor. In either case, it may be cheaper to purchase a used one than repair.

There can be two possible reasons. The first most likely reason, if it is on only 1 game, is that the CD has been damaged too much and cannot read everything on the CD that is has to read on some times.

The second option is that your Playstation is the problem. This is only if it isn't only for one game, but for multiple. This would mean your disk drive is damaged (usually by having an older console).

If the a game will not start on a Playstation 2 its a defect disk.
trying cleaning it.
Remember to not trie and clean the disk in cirkular motions as that can lead to more dust gets in to the disk.

I'm not sure what wires you mean, but Radio Shack, or similar store, should have anything you need, or at least the means to splice longer wire into the existing line.
If you mean these:
Then, yes, they sell all kinds of them. It's called an IDE cable.

Good luck, sounds like an interesting project.

If other games work, then your disk is probably damaged try a disk cleaner solution.

This is the best site i used to visit

i hope you will find new cheat codes there

Could be. Maybe the game doesn't recognize the 16 MB. You can try an original 8 MB Sony one. They're not that expensive anymore. But first try the other Memory Card slot.

Let me know if it worked. Please rate.

Here's a link from GameFAQs. You can view some walkthroughs written by gamers who already completed the game. There probably is some advice about how to kill them all in 40 seconds. Also it might benefit your further gameplay if you get stuck somewhere.

The link:
[Kingdom Hearts 2 Walkthroughs at GameFAQs]

Be careful though, those FAQs usually contain spoilers about the plot of the game as well, So my advice to you is: only look up what you need to know every time, do not read ahead.

I hope this helps you defeat them in time. Please rate my solution.

Have you tried both Memory Card slots? Maybe Final Fantasy Tactices doesn't understand a 16 MB Memory Card since the official Sony ones are only 8 MB's. Maybe you can try one of those?

Let me know if this helps. Please rate.

Try using the code 7-4-4-4. It should clear whatever they put in and then you can put your own in.

i don't know if you changed the parental control code or not but when it comes to put the code press select and then insert 7444 and it will delete the password and will ask you to put the new one then add any three digit number and then when the movie starts press select and go to setup and then parental control tab and turn it off now there will be no passwords..........

if you bought your PS2 where you live then you have a region code problem ..Please make sure the Region Code of the software matches that of the North American PlayStation 2 system. Only discs (games and movies) coded with regions "1" or "All" will work on a North American PlayStation 2 computer entertainment system. Consumers residing in the United States or Canada must use a North American PlayStation 2 console in order to view "Region 1" content.

this is same for yours too..
