How do you play copied ps3 games


You can, but it requires you to save the game on the hard drive in Fat32 format. I recomend checking out the videos on the PS3-P (portable) It should give you the info you need.

My ps3's data got corrupted and it said i could restore it.i did, but now my online friends list is gone and so is my other data!please help me!


Unfortunately, if you did a full system restore without backing up your data, it's gone. Sorry, man. However, if you sign into your PSN account, you'll still have your trophies. I know it's not much. Sorry I couldn't be of more assistance.

HI,
Things You'll Need:

* PlayStation 3
* External hard drive

Unplug any external hard drive that may be attached to the PS3.

Restart the PS3, including unplugging it and plugging it into the power supply again.

Format the file you are trying to save to be less than 2 GB in size. The main reason you are getting this error (game will not save) is due to the large file you tried to save.

Connect the external hard drive to your PS3 again and save the file. The error should not occur again.

Will turn on but screen says "hard disk data base will be rebuilt", says to "push X button to start", nothing happens just starts all over again with the same thing


Hello. You need to reformat your hard drive with an external USB set up. If you do not have an external hard drive case with USB then try another hard drive. Here is a link to show you the one I use to reformat Xbox 360 and PS3 hard drives.
http://cgi.ebay.com/External-2-5-SATA-Hard-Drive-USB-Enclosure-Silver-h09_W0QQitemZ150293421808QQcmdZViewItem?hash=item150293421808&_trkparms=72%3A1205%7C39%3A1%7C66%3A2%7C65%3A12%7C240%3A1318&_trksid=p3286.c0.m14

Sometimes the drives will not reformat due to a physical problem inside of the hard drive though. But either replacing it or reformating it will always solve this problem.

I hope this helps. Good luck and happy gaming!!

Upgrade of the hard drive


You cant really get a PS3 Hard Drive because Sony made their own Hard Drives so i think your gonna have to Contact them asking for a PS3 Hard Drive and i think you should really delete some Games like Demos you downloaded cause those Demos take up atleast 500 mbs each or more.
