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?

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.
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.
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.
Hi, Hopefully this will help solve your problem: 1.Press and hold down the power button located at the front of the PS3 console, until you hear a first beep, then eventually a second – before the console shuts down, then let go of the button; 2.Now press and hold the button again until you hear a first beep, then a second beep then eventually a quick double-beep, then let go of the button; 3.The TV screen should now display a six option menu, where you can select what’s required, i.e. `Restart System`, `Restore System` etc. `Reset System` should only be used after other attempts with the other options, as your game saved data may be lost. If you play Modern Warfare 2 online, then this won’t be affected as your data is saved on the Sony Server. 4.During any of the above actions, your best having your handset controller connected to the PS3 via the USB cord, which includes pressing the `P` button when required (located between `Start` and `Select`). These actions should help solve `freeze` problems and others such as update errors etc – which restrict you starting up or playing your console. Don’t hesitate to contact Sony UK if required, who are very helpful. Their UK number is: 0844 7360595 Good Luck!

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.
