Put the save file on a USB stick
usb - PS3 - SAVEDATA- <gamaesavehere> (folders must be in caps)

then on ps3
XMB - Game - SAve data utility - external USB- <gamesavehere> - hit Triangle - Copy - to PS3 - okay. or if you have a double sided usb cable it will work as well to connect it to your computer and to your ps3

How do you reset playstation 3


Hello,

Hard Reset procedure for the PS3 (as instructed by Sony CS). Be sure to backup your settings/games saves by doing a System > Backup on your PS3 or you may lose your game saves! Also, this is a last resort procedure prior to exchanging/returning to sony.

1. Power Off the PS3 via the power switch in back and power back on w/switch.

2. Hold Power Button on the Front until you hear 3 beeps.

3. Then go through the initial setup and then run a full Format via System > Format. (will take approx 3 1/1 hours). You may need to have our AV cables ready if your using HDMI (in case HDMI isn't detected after initial reset).

4. Restore your backup you made prior to doing factory/hard reset (optional, if you created a backup).

I hope this helps

My ps3 keeps freezen and not loadn games some not all


SAFE MODE:

1. Place you finger on the on/off sensor leave it their until you console turns off then take you finger off the sensor.

2. Place your finger back on the on/off sensor leave it their until you hear 2 consecutive beeps then take your finger off.

3. Once the safe mode screen comes on select the option PS3 SYSTEM RESTORE.

NOTE: A PS3 system restore will delete all data except the OS. I recommend backing up your console onto a USB flash drive if possible.


Good Luck!


You can also do a system restore off the PS3 main menu under the tools icon.

Hopefully this will solve your freezing problems.

Problems/symptons that this appears to have resolved:
-freezing when doing anything
-no harddrive activity
-freezing when trying to use onboard keyboard or bringing up keyboard
-game/movie disc freezes system

The playstation 3 plays dvd's but not games it does not load them up at all.


1 Discs that are not compatible with the system cannot be played. 2 Games that can be played on this system have to be on PLAYSTATION3 format software. Playstations format software canbe played but may not perform correctly. Please check if the games you wish to play are on this format. 3 Please check if the data for PS3 format software is saved on the system's hard disk. The data is displayed under Game - Saved data utility

Says System is too Hot. But its not even hot


Make sure your ps3 is out in the open, don't leave it in an entertainment center cause it can cause alot of hot air flow.

Keep in mind that it could also be that the air vents maybe clogged as well. Take a can of air and blow it into the air vents to make sure the vents are clear of dust or dirt.

If those two steps don't do it then it could be that a fan isn't working or the power supply might be overheating.

Playstation 3 wont play PS3 Games


ok right so your ps3 wont read disks huh well first of all id like to say this has happened to me twice and it has worked perfectly for me and i quarentee it will work for you ...

first save all your data to a memory stick

secondly go to settings, system settings, and format your ps3 by clicking on full format this will delete all your filles :( but will refresh your ps3


BTW this formatting thing will take atleast 4 hours so just leave your ps3 on and chill out watch t.v or something :)

hope this helps

Hard drive


Hi tempo27

Yes, you can put it into a new Playstation as long as it is also a Playstsaion 3. You won't lose any saves, as all your game saves is saved on your memmory card.
