Question about Konami Metal Gear Solid 4: Guns of the Patriots

2 Answers

Metal Gear Solid 4 froze up on installation on my PS3

It has been installing for 5 minutes, and hasn't advanced past 30%. It says it still has 8 minutes to go. There is a flashing CD icon with a question mark over it flashing in the upper left corner of the screen.

    I tried restarting and realized that my 80 gb hard drive was full. I then installed the game with no problem. I watched the opening scene in the game and when it gave me control of the character I crawled under a truck (as the game sugested), the screen went black and the flashing CD symbol with a question mark appeared flashing in the upper left corner of the screen. I had to shut the unit off after it beeped at me (I think 3 times).



    This is weird. Should a PS3 have trouble with PS3 games?

It sounds like your disk is scratched. The easiest solution is to go to a video rental store and have them re-surface it (most likely for a fee) or you can go to a store and look for a dvd scratch repair kit (cost between $15.99-$30.00) if neither of these work you will most likely need to buy a new disc

Hi!
Wow, that stinks! A foreign object broke off BD and is affecting your BD drive or the damaged BD itself damaged the drive. Hopefully it hasn't damaged it permanently. Repair center time. Good luck.

I've just bought the Soldier of Fortune payback game, and have installed it on windows 7. is there any patch to make it run on windows 7? are there any other options to do this? thanks in advance


right click on the program icon (Soldier of Fortune) then click the option "troubleshoot compatibility", windows 7 will adjust the settings compatible with the games, a window will appear, click "start the program", should the program run, save the settings.

Res evil 5 no load.


I think the problem is the PS3's HDD. I "upgraded" my HDD about a year and a half ago, and had no problems until now. I can't seem to install anything, games or demos. But the PS3 can read the disk just fine, even play games just fine. I would see if swapping the HDD does anything.

Ps3 wont play games


Go to the BD Settings and try disabling one that says 24GHz or someting. It worked for a lot of people because their 1080p TV doesn't support it.
