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..

    The same wont start, and my PS3 system is updated

    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!

Ps3 won't play dvd once it is inserted


Is it a regular DVD? Or a burned one. It is possible, that if it was a burned copy, the format might not be supported. If it is a regular DVD, than only 2 options it could be. The easy one is, check the DVD. Are there any big scratches or smudges that would cause it not to read. If it is a new DVD, than there is a real possibility that your Blue-Ray disk drive is on it's last leg and will need to be replaced.

Putting old hard drive in new ps3 to get game saves error


You cannot switch a hard drive from an old ps3 and put it into the new one. The new ps3 will know that a new hard drive was inserted and offer to format it.

To get the games off the old hard drive, put it back into the old ps3. Insert a USB flash drive into a USB port on the PS3 and you should be able to copy saved games from the hard drive onto the USB flash drive. You can then plug the USB flash drive into your new ps3 and copy off the saved game info,

What to do when the ps3 shows "invalid format"?


For games, it means you inserted a unsupported disc. This is usually the case when say, inserting a xbox game into the PS3, or when trying to play a copied game.

For videos or music files, the format is not readable by the PS3. In this case, you should convert to something that is supported.
