Question about Sony Playstation 3 (PS3) Console

40gb ps3 won't load saved game data.

I have a playstation 3 and I only have two games. I've had it for about six months. Just recently, the system will no longer save game data. The games play just fine, but the system won't save information. Can I troubleshoot this problem or should I have it serviced by a professional?

My ps3 plays games but will not play blu ray movie


You can try clear your movie data from the discs you\'ve played (according to Fox that\'s sometimes the culprit when a disc won\'t even load): restart your PS3 and go to the video menu and scroll up to the BluRay Data section. Go into it and check that it has saved some info for your movies. Now deleted all the data in this folder except the shared data crap, and hopefully your movies start perfectly!!



If that fails try the following:

In the XMB(menus) go to Settings ---> BD/DVD Settings ---> BD 1080p 24 Hz Output (HDMI). Turn that off. This has also been known to work.

Playing MLB the Show on PS3. Game loads fine, franchise I've been playing loads fine. But once I try to play a game, bar starts as game loads then game cuts off and goes to main PS3 screen.


Is your CD dirty or does it have any cracks? It might just be the problem. Otherwise, it could be corrupt game data. Clean the disc, if it still doesn't work I'd try deleting the game utility data and re-downloading it. Hope this helps in some way or another.

I have a Playstation 3. Starting tonight, everytime I put in NBA 2K11 the game will load to the main screen and ask me to press start. Everytime I press start me game freezes and I have to restart my...


Yes it will delete all your saved data.

You want to keep the data, so you need an external storage device (memory card, flash drive and so on). Copy the data on the device. If anything happens to the PS3, you still have your data on the device. When you restore the PS3, you can put back the data.

Keep us posted.

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

Save/load problem on ps3


You can try to reformat the entire hard drive, or you can buy a new hard drive.

To reformat the drive, in the PS3 menu:

NOTE: This will erase everything you saved on the hard drive.

1) Go to the Settings menu, then select System Settings.
2) Select Format Utility, then select Format Hard Disk.
3) Select Quick Format

To replace the Hard Drive, buy any 2.5 inch notebook hard drive that has a serial ATA connection. Then remove the old hard drive from the left side of the PS3 and install the new hard drive.

Add ons and game data


Return the system now (you only have one year warrenty), if your expiriencing any issues. Just type in " ps3 not reading on search.com and you will find out why. Its a huge issue. If you still have your reciept, get a new one. Also sounds like you have a memory problem, so get the new system. It sounds like alot, but it will be worth it in the long run.
