This error has been identified , and verified by myself when I first got it after playing BF4 the first few days it was out and got the message during the loading screen, to be an internal storage issue rather than any sort of connection problem. Most fast fixes recommend backing up your games,saves, etc. and formatting the HDD to original state to clear what is basically 'read-only' tagged info that is usually newer content or from an external source lke camera's, mp3,etc. How this content got set to a state where it can't be deleted individual is anybody's guess, but mine was the BF4 save data that caused it. I realized this when I popped in BF3 and loaded fine into campaign saved data as well as multiplayer matches with all custom options intact as well as playing a free to play MMO Dust with no issues or lost data. Glas I had only been playing for a couple days and didn't lose much other than level1-2 of the campaign. Strangely enough, the load-outs, server filters, etc. that are stored on EA's external servers remained as I had set them, but the local info (I.e. save data) was corrupt leaving the main options of controller, audio, video, etc. were set to default each time I played the game and reverted to the initial movie cut screen on the campaign mode. What is weird is that it would let me save and continue flawlessly until I turned of the PS3 and then it reared it's ugly head. Hope this helps and you are able to save most of your stuff seing as how it seems to be only from one source, folder, etc. that causes the problem.

On my ps3, while trying yo load my fifa 11 game it says an error has occurred ( 80030001) and wont let me on it, please could you help

Error 80030001 means there are corrupted files. Try rebooting your PS3. When it restarts it should do a self diagnostic and fix itself.
If that doesn't work, you'll need to boot into recovery mode.

1. Turn off Playstation®3.

2. Hold The power button down; The system will turn on and turn off once again.

3. Once the System has been shutdown, re-press you finger until you hear 2 consecutive beeps

4. When you hear the 2 beeps take finger off power button.

5. You will be promted to plug in your controller via usb and then hit the PS button

6. The Recovery menu will pop up.

Hit the option "Restore File System:" and reboot.

Playstation 3 error 80030001

It sounds like you are losing your connection to either your router or ISP. You can try to disable the media server in Network Settings and also disabling the Info Bar on the PS3. Try again.
If problem persists, and you own a router...login to the router settings and disable UPNP, put your PS3 in the DMZ or google port forwarding on the ps3 and follow the steps for your router.
Good Luck!
