    We have the similar issues at my house. The playstation does not freeze - I can quit the game and go to the internet and browse other sites. Connection issues seems to be with the C.O.D. 4 list of active games.



    Problem continues even after reboot of PS3. Only way to fix is to reboot my router.



    Any assistance would be appreciated.

    whenever i try to play cod4 online the same thing happens. 'Dowloading Game Settings' appears and it just freezes. My brother has exactly the same problem with his ps3, although both he and i have had it working once, since the trouble started by leaving it with the message 'dowloading game settings' then restarting it several times. Im extremely vexed as it was working fine for so long. Both my brother and i have been through the multiplayer game once and unlocked the prestige mode. Maybe this could of affected it?

    i load everything else fine but when i try to get int the game list menu it takes about 45 mins to loads the selection. I have had the game since it first came out and i have never had this issue. Do i need to buy a new disc ?

    I have the same problem also. I reset my system, my router, my network connections and everything just cause it just happened out of nowhere and still the same problem. But i can still play my MLB The Show 09 online so i think there is something to the bad software disc theory.

    same thing just got the game and same issue

  • JOJO m Apr 13, 2009

    Yea, I am having the same problem. I click on Play Online and it just sits there for ever saying Downloading Game Settings. I sat there for like 25 minutes and it still did nothing. Not even any of the buttons on the controller will work,not even the PS button that usually works from any screen. I had to completely turn off the system.

Cod4 is a poorly made software disc. it sucks. I have waited 3 hours to load to the main menu of multiplayer. It is a poor software company that makes these discs.

Cannot connect to game It keeps saying downloading game setting


May be a memory issue try
1- erasing installed game data and reinstalling
2- erasing any ancient demos you may have on your hard drive, uninstalled or otherwise
3- are you signed in to PS Network? If you have a slow connection, sign in before you start game.
4- turn off auto-start (in PS3 system settings)

I can't download upadate 7.01 for call of duty just keeps giving me error message. I am connected to the internet.


If you are stuck on the Downloading game settings screen after clicking Find Game, this may be the fix for you. I did this on my PS3 and it worked.

1) Go into network settings and then make sure everything is custom, no automatic.

2) Find the IP address for the PS3. This is the problem!

3) Set the IP address to 192.168.1.100. If COD4 does not work, change the 100 in the IP to a higher number (101,102,103 etc.) (The closer to 100, the better.) Then try again.

This simple thing worked for me, and should work for you.
Reason: Most online games use the IP address from the PS3, but COD4 doesn't. The designers of the game made it so that COD4 scans for its own IP address. It scans from 192.168.1.100 up and that's why if you CAN get COD4 to work with the Downloading Game Settings box, it takes an hour. By changing it to ....100 you are forcing COD4 to choose that IP address which is the fastest one.

Go Online Screen Then Go Back To The Screen With All The Multiplayer Options, Leave It Like That For About 15 Minutes, Then Check It If It Hasn't Loaded Repeat All Of These Steps And It Will Work.(You Must After Going On The Downloading Game Settings Menu Go Back, Then Go Onto The Menu With The Create-A-Class Option And The Baracks, BUT DON'T CLICK FIND GAME GO BACK TO MULTIPLAYER OPTIONS MENU AND LEAVE FOR RECOMMENDED TIME. please rate :)

When i choose mission and play only black screen is appear why this is happening tell me and guide for it thnks


What game is this? COD4? What system? PC? X360? PS3? If it's a PC game, then either the game is not responding, orthere is something wrong with your system. If it's X360, try restarting the console and try again. Same thing goes for the PS3. Restart and try again.
