My ps3 freezes in the middle of the cod mw2 game and sometimes when i try to turn it off the ps3 actually freezes, and i have to turn off the ps3 in the back switch


Try this:
  1. Back up your PS3. You will need a PS3-compatible external hard disk drive.

    How to back up your PS3:

  2. Enter Recovery Mode.


  3. Choose "Rebuild Database".
  4. Choose "Restore File System".
Try COD MW2 again.
If COD is still freezing it may be a hardware problem - such as a Blu-Ray drive on it's way to failure. Call Sony.
  • If your system is still under warranty, the only cost will be $30 to ship your system back to Sony; otherwise, Sony will charge $150 to replace your PS3 with a refurbished system.

Save/load problem on ps3


You can try to reformat the entire hard drive, or you can buy a new hard drive.

To reformat the drive, in the PS3 menu:

NOTE: This will erase everything you saved on the hard drive.

1) Go to the Settings menu, then select System Settings.
2) Select Format Utility, then select Format Hard Disk.
3) Select Quick Format

To replace the Hard Drive, buy any 2.5 inch notebook hard drive that has a serial ATA connection. Then remove the old hard drive from the left side of the PS3 and install the new hard drive.

Saying hard disk corrupt then restores but game freezes


Is this a game on your hard drive or a CD? If it is on your hard drive then it quite possibly had a bad download OR your hard drive is on its last leg.

PS3 Randomly Reboots while playing Rainbow Six Vegas


Sounds like you've got a data issue related to the hard drive.

You should use the Restore to Factory Settings option under SYSTEM.

This should address the problem.

Also does the machine feel hot or does it sound loud?

PS3 freezes when booted up


This sounds like your hard drive might be bad. Try pulling the hard drive out of your PS3 then turn it on and see if it will turn on. If the system turns on then i would say your hard drive definitely needs to be replaced.
