    I have the same error, and this is the only page I can find where anyone else does, too.
    Obviously, you guys fixed it. May I ask how? I'm completely at a loss, here.
    And no, I didn't download the game to my Hard Drive.

    try not signing in before you start the game and when it brings up this error press the big X button (not the blue x but the big one in the middle) and it should take you to your dash settings, sign in and go back to the game see if this helps

I think it's just down to second controllers of any type, so make sure they're unplugged.
Hence why on your main controller you can't seem to press red or green.

I experienced the same issue. To resolve it, I performed the following steps (I'm not sure which step did it, so I'll include everything):

1) I uninstalled the game from my hard drive.
2) I unplugged all controllers (including Rockband guitars, etc) except for a single wired controller.
3) I powered up my 360 using the controller.

I was then able to play GTA IV as usual.

The problem is that GTA4 only recognizes the first controller. You most likely have two controllers plugged in and you're using the second controller.

Ensure you're either signed into controller No.1 or you unplug all controllers but the one you are using.

NOTE: You do not need to delete the game form your hard drive or clear your cache.

I have the same problem, but I have an iMac (BootCamp - WIN 7), and I use only one controller, which is a Magic Mouse (+Bluetooth keyboard).

What should I do?
Please help...

Cant sign in

This is a known problem with the recent update.
As many others have reported this bug occurs when you are supposed to earn a trophy and nothing happens. Somehow user accounts get corrupted :
- Trophy Syncing won't work (Error 8022D11)
- PSN games tell us that the system is not activated.
- Other games will not work either, telling that the data was created by another user and we would have to restart the game.
The only way to get rid of this problem is by deleting the current user and creating a new one with the same name. This however ruins most of the save games because the games won't accept them as ours!! Here is some gathered information :
- It can happen with every games supporting trophies.
- It happens since 2.50 and still happens with 2.52.
- There still is no official statement that this bug exists!
HERE is one link for more info...

Whats happened is you have started from a new game while an existing save was there. There is no way to save your current progress, however the origional save will still be there. You can either turn it off and start again from the previous save (by selecting the top option at the first menu) or if you want to start right from the begining and be able to save you will need to delete the old save file. I believe the reason for this was that so many kids losts their game that may have taken month (or years) of playing by a friend or sibbling trying to play the game from the start and then save - which would delete the other game save.

Well in your game sometimes it will automatically save the game but some want you to press start and then goto save.

some games it takes a hour into it before you actually hit a save point for the game some are right after the title screen

if you create a new game in the game then chances are if it shows a progress bar as well then its been auto saved there at the start of the game.

let me know what game you are trying to save on and ill let ya know what should happen

SAVED GAME FOR GTA IV


sorry to hear your game save is corrupt.

while i haven't heart of any save problems with gta 4.... no game is perfect.

If it continually happens with gta 4 and possibly with other games, it could be a sign of hard drive failure.

Hd failure is a common problem with other models.

Just a heads up.
