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

1 Answer

Msg4 just won't start

So i insert my brand new copy of msg4 into my ps3, and all i get is a screen that says something along the lines of "this game saves automatically at different points..please don't turn off system while hdd icon is flashing", and in the corner is the the "x" button symbol..and then nothing. absolutely nothing...
i went to gamestop yesterday, and the guy working there told me i just needed to wait, like, 30 minutes and everything would load properly...
well, i left in on all night...woke up the next morning...and nothing. still the same screen.
i've tried it with two separate copies of the game, and neither work..
what am i missing here?
any help would be greatly appreciated..

    I haev the same problem, and my system is fully updated. Ive even reset all settings to factory settings.

    I'm not happy!

    I just ran the system update and it didn't help. I cannot move past the screen that advises me not to switch the system when the HDD access indicator is flashing...

    Any of you have found a solution? I see that it's quite a frequent problem and apparently changing a disk does not solve it. However everybody has a fully functioning PS3 (so do I) - other games ran fine, i browse internet, watch dvds, etc,

    thanks in advance!

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.

Make sure all controllers are connected to the console. If that isn't the problem go to quickplay or start new game or something along those lines and when it comes up make sure there are two controllers on that game menu
