    while playing resistance the game froze and i had to restart the system, twise. 1st time i lost my game save which wasnt so bad since i was only an hour or so into the game. 2nd time just cost me a good 4-5 hrs! And when the system restarted it told me it had to format the drive... i said "no" and rebooted again. But EVERTHING is now gone! :(

    I am having the same problem. My husband has lost his Nascar 09 file twice. And this last time it dumped my GTA4 file too. Please send any advice. My 80gb is almost a year old.

    OMG! I have that same problem but I think you might have to remove the hard disk but I don't have a screwdriver that small.

Playstation 3 will not read the game disk but will

Hi there,

Try the steps mentioned below and the PS3 will work with the games disks as well;
1) Restore your PS3 to deafault settings under System Settings
2) Hold down the power button for several seconds until the light goes from red to green to red. Once it turns back to red, let go.
3) Finally, Hold down the power button again untill you hear 2 quick beeps... a few seconds. This will repair any damaged sectors in your HD.
