Just finished talking to sony 1-800-345-7669. technician said alls I had to do was download some pictures or a cd. well I put in a cd of the eagles and hit the triangle button, clicked yes for import cd, and viola, tools of destruction loaded. it may depend on the cd size, you may have to do more than one but it worked for me. I had a new ps3 out the box yesterday for xmas....

I had the same problem with mine right out of the box. The solution I found was that you need to add some files to your hard drive and eventually it will work. I simply copied 7 cds to the hard drive and it worked. Found that fix on the net. It was driving me crazy. There is a problem with the Game not the system. It needs to see some type of memory change before it will play.

Hope that helps.

We have got the game working now. we put in another game and had to do a couple of updates using other games. first we put in Resistance and got an update of 2.3 then we tried Tomb Raider Underworld and the PS3 updated to 2.4. I am not sure what my husband means but the updates can only be done by putting in a more recent game he says. Ratchet and Clank then worked fine. Sorry I am not that technical minded so hope you understand my speel

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.

Ratchet and clank will not play on my ps3

Get a music CD and put it in the machine, then press the triangle and select import. You may have to use more than one CD to get it to work. There are some files missing that are needed for Ratchet & Clank which are on music CD's.

It worked for me.

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
