Why wont my psx/ps1 game work?

The game obviously is older (spyro 1999) but I tried to put it in recently and play it and it goes through the entire intro and everything and then fades to black and won't let me play. I'm a huge spyro nerd so I plan to buy another one but I was just curious if it was maybe because of a scratch.. I did try it on the ps2 as well and same thing happened so that's why I think it's the disc.

Top scratches can ruin the disc, bottom ones may or may not, try cleaning it with a fiber cloth or some water.

If your desperate try toothpaste as A last attempt.

I would clean the game disc and also maybe try to clean the PS with a laser disc cleaner too. Some PS games were not compatible with certain PS systems. Such as the regular PS1 games won't work with the slim updated version of the PS2 but may work with the regular size PS2 and there is a difference between the PS1 and PS so you may just have a game that isn't compatible with your system's version.
