Thats means you do not have enough available space on your hard drive to install the graphics program. You need to go into your games saves, music, or vids and delete the ones that you feel you don't need anymore. I hope this helps. Thanks!

We have just purchased ratchet and clank - tools of destruction. It is telling us that our HDD has insufficient space and we need 419mb to install it. We have a 160gb PS3 and according to system...


HI there. This is a PS3 bug and the only solution available was to format the PS3.

So i would recommend you to back up your save files and then go to system settings and restore hard disk to default.

Once done, update your PS3 to the latest firmware, return your save files and then try to install Ratchet and Clank Tools of Destruction.

Please rate and comment, thank you.

I also have that problem


For those of us eager to get some platforming action joy with Insomniac Games' latest next-gen masterpiece on the Sony PlayStation 3, Ratchet & Clank Future: Tools of Destruction, you may have encountered a glitch that stops the fun dead in its tracks. Thankfully, a workaround has been provided by none other than Insomniac Games itself through the company's own community manager James Stevenson.

So what causes the video gaming happy to suddenly cease and desist? James Stevenson explains that like Resistance: Fall of Man, Ratchet & Clank Future: Tools of Destruction needs to install a few files into your hard drive for the game to actually run. Here's where things start getting a little dicey: even though you've got loads of free space on your hard drive, the game could read your hard drive as full, and therefore refuse to install. Ouch.

What's the workaround, then? It's really a simple procedure. James advises that to make the problem go away, all players need to do is either free up 500 megabytes' worth of space, or download 500 megabytes worth of data from the PlayStation Network Store. Yes, we know, it's weird, having to fill up your hard drive just so a game can detect all the loads of free space available, but if it lets us play something as good as Ratchet & Clank Future: Tools of Destruction, then fill up we must.

Insufficient HDD space to play a game on a brand new ps3


This is a common problem (bug) with this game. Basically you have to delete something, anything, off your harddrive. If you have nothing on then download a demo or something then delete it. This should fool yr ps3 into releasing the space you need to play r&c.

Game says not enough HDD space but there is 64 GB of space.


I downloaded a SoulCalibur IV demo and tried running Ratchet and Clank: Tools of Destruction again and it allowed me to continue on to the main menu this time.

Brand new PS3 says not enough memory to play game


If this is a PS2 game that you are playing on the PS3 you need to set up a internal seperate memory card for that game and that will fix your problem how to set up a internal memory card goto the icon that says game scroll up till you see memory card utility click it then click new internal memory card.

Brand new PS3 80GB - says I don't have enough HDD space!!!


this is a known big in the game , i listed the report below

We have identified a data loading issue with PS3 and Ratchet & Clank Tools of Destruction, which may affect users who boot the game up for the first time.

During the pre-game set-up procedure, game data is automatically saved to the PS3 HDD. It has been found that, on occasion, this data fails to copy to the HDD, with an on-scree message claiming that there is insufficient space to do so - despite the fact that there is in fact enough free space on the drive.

ACTION: For every 4GB of HDD space, there is a 540MB range that will cause the game to display a message indicating that there is insufficient space to create game data. This message will therefore occur when the following amount of free space is on the HDD:

- 4010-4550MB;
- 8010-8550MB;
- 12010-12550MB;
- at every subsequent 4GB interval (i.e 16010-16550MB, etc)

If the PS3 HDD is within any of these ranges when booting without game data created, this message will appear. After game data is created, this will never appear, so if a user doesnt encounter it at first, they never will. Any users who do receive this message will need to either delete data from or save data to the HDD, so that the amount of free space no longer lies within the range detailed above

Ratchet and clank future: tools of destruction game doesnt play


I have read through some forums for you, and it appears that there is a bug that reads your disk as full even if it is not. The fix is to add at least 500MB of game data to your harddrive, then it will work. I think the bug was on the american version of the game. It read an almost empty harddrive as full.

I hope this helps
