    My PS3 started freezing after buying my MLB 09 The Show. Now it won't play any Blu-ray movies or PS3 games. It will, however, play DVD's and PS2 games without a problem. What can I do to fix this?

    the saved data for my ps3 "call of duty world at war" is corrupted...when I try copy the saved data, I get the "the data is corrupted" message...when I try start the game, it does the "loading call of duty", then does the ps3 beep, and just hangs with a black screen...other users can still play the game fine...have tried deleting the game data and re-installing with the same result...seems it's just the saved data for this one user...anyone have a way to fix it?

Kakashi is exactly right...I finally got that solution from Activision customer support (although it did take several go arounds to finally get it)...btw we had also ordered an updated map pack that got deleted when we deleted the saved data, but the ps3 store has an option where you can re-load things you have recently purchased, so we did that and it worked fine...thanx, kakashi

My Ps3 keeps freezing up but only on 1 game. I've already tried switching disc with the same game. Can you help?


If it's freezing with the same game it means either one or two things.

Your game data is corrupt, fix them by deleting all instances of the game under Game Data. Make sure you backup your game saves to an external usb drive just in case.

2nd possible reason is you've got a bad sector on your hard drive, if the above doesn't work then I would suggest you swap out your hard drive with a new one. 320gb drives from Best Buy for for $50 so it's a pretty cheap fix ;)

Corrupted data


It's possible that you're turning off the ps3 while it's saving, corrupting the save data.
Make sure when you turn off the ps3 it's not in the process of saving.
Try the above and if you still have no luck it's possible there's an issue with your ps3's hard drive, have you had any problems with any other games?

Also, if the problem persists, try deleting the MW2 gamedata, located under gamedata on the ps3's menu.
Best of luck to you.

My ps3 is freezing, is there anything i can do at home to fix this


Yes! You MAY BE able to fix your ps3's problem at home if you follow this guide. You need to RESTORE SYSTEM FILES of your ps3 to correct corrupt data that causes the freezing.

Normal 0 false false false MicrosoftInternetExplorer4 /* Style Definitions */ table.MsoNormalTable {mso-style-name:"Table Normal"; mso-tstyle-rowband-size:0; mso-tstyle-colband-size:0; mso-style-noshow:yes; mso-style-parent:""; mso-padding-alt:0in 5.4pt 0in 5.4pt; mso-para-margin:0in; mso-para-margin-bottom:.0001pt; mso-pagination:widow-orphan; font-size:10.0pt; font-family:"Times New Roman"; mso-ansi-language:#0400; mso-fareast-language:#0400; mso-bidi-language:#0400;} HOW TO GO TO THE RECOVERY MENU OF PS3 SYSTEM

1. Make sure the ps3 is plugged in (stand by mode).
2. Put out your usb cable for the controller and the controller itself (do not connect yet).
3. Hold down power firmly, ps3 will turn on and then turn off, release power button when t turns off.
4. Hold down power again, you will hear a beep and then a double beep, when you hear that double beep release the power button.
5. Now you should be seeing something in your monitor that say "Connect usb controller", do just that.
6. After connecting the controller press PS button.
7. You are now in the recovery menu.
8. To fix the problem of corrupt data you can choose #3.
9. If you want to format your hard drive choose #5. Be aware that this option will delete everything that is in your hard drive.
10. Remember that doing #3 and #5 is not 100% to fix the problem of corrupt data, I say about 70%.

Good luck!

My games keep coming up as corrupted data on my psp and i try to delete it and put it back on but it keeps coming up as corrupted data. Is there a special software for this if there is a special software...


Hard Reset procedure for the PS3 (as instructed by Sony CS). Be sure to backup your settings/games saves by doing a System > Backup on your PS3 or you may lose your game saves! Also, this is a last resort procedure prior to exchanging/returning to sony.
1. Power Off the PS3 via the power switch in back and power back on w/switch.
2. Hold Power Button on the Front until you hear 3 beeps.
3. Then go through the initial setup and then run a full Format via System > Format. (will take approx 3 1/1 hours). You may need to have our AV cables ready if your using HDMI (in case HDMI isn’t detected after initial reset).
4. Restore your backup you made prior to doing factory/hard reset (optional, if you created a backup).

**USE A FLASHDRIVE FIRST TO BACK UP YOUR SAVED GAMES**


Settings > System Settings > Restore PS3™ System

Delete all hard disk content and restore the system software to its default settings. Follow the on-screen instructions to perform this operation.

After the operation has been completed, the initial setup screen will be displayed. Follow the on-screen instructions to complete the operation.

Notices
  • When you perform this operation, all data on the hard disk will be deleted. Also, the system software will be restored to its default settings. Be careful not to accidentally delete important data as the changes cannot be undone. Data loss or corruption is the responsibility of the user.
  • Do not turn off the PS3™ system during this operation. If the operation is cancelled before completion, the system software may become damaged, and the system may require servicing or exchange.
  • During this operation, the power button on the system front and the PS button on the wireless controller are not active.
  • You cannot use this feature to go back to an earlier version of the system software.
  • You can shorten the formatting time by selecting [Quick Format] from the hard disk format methods. However, in this case it may be possible for some deleted data to be restored if a specialized tool is used. Select [Full Format] when formatting a hard disk that contains important or sensitive data.

Madden 09 ps3 game keeps freezing up


If you bought another copy of the game and it happens at the same exact place it's probably because your game data has become corrupted. Go to GAME, then Game Data Utility folder, delete the Madden 09 info and see what happens. It's probably a good idea to do a backup first just in case this doesn't fix the problem.

Ps3 freezes everytime i load a game


It could be a corrupted save file.  Something similar happened to me.  If your game freezes too much while loading a file it can become permanently corrupted.  You should back up your save data on a flash drive or other device.  As for your problem, i'm not sure the cause.  Perhaps you should try other games
