A lot of corrupted data files

Hi, after formating the MS by the PSP, hundreds of curropted data files shows in the MS, Saved Data Utility, Music section and the Photos section. however when opening the MS using USB the Game folder, Music folder and Photos folder are all empty (no Files). tried deleting the files from the PSP it gives the "Delete failed" message! Note: copied games into the MS and it runs fine, the irritating part is that i have to scroll hundred corrupted file down before selecting the game file. Please Help...

My ps3's data got corrupted and it said i could restore it.i did, but now my online friends list is gone and so is my other data!please help me!

Unfortunately, if you did a full system restore without backing up your data, it's gone. Sorry, man. However, if you sign into your PSN account, you'll still have your trophies. I know it's not much. Sorry I couldn't be of more assistance.

How to download psp games into my pc

Hi there, I came across an article which explains how to transfer PSP Data to your PC.

The PSP can function as a USB Memory Stick Duo reader. Using this functionality, you can copy pictures, audio, and other content to and from your Memory Stick Duo. To access the Memory Stick Duo in your PSP from your PC, you'll need a USB cable that has a "Mini-B" connector (common for digital cameras) and a "Standard-A" connector (common for printers, etc). Plug the Mini-B side into the top of your PSP and the Standard-A side into your PC. From the PSP software, navigate to the top of the settings list and select "USB Connection." Your PC (Windows/Mac/Linux) should detect a new "Removable Disk Drive" that you can then access.
In order to be able to use your new memory stick on your PSP, you'll have to format it. When you format your memory stick, the formatting will create a set of new folders on your PSP: GAME, MUSIC, PHOTO, and SAVEDATA.
This process will greatly depend on which software you use to extract zip files. WinRAR for instance offers the "extract here" option, which will simply extract the contents of a zip file to it's current directory.
Just copy the folder you have just extracted, and paste it into the PSP's "SAVEDATA" folder. But, BEWARE!, to any folder overwrite warnings! Because the PSP save game folders use the same names for the same games, copying folders into these locations could lead to lost data. For this reason, we recommend that you backup your old save games before overwriting them. For Example, I would simply rename a folder like "ULPS0004" to "ULPS0004_backup."
Because your PSP has been in USB Mode throughout this process, just push X to exit. Then you can safely disconnect your PSP from your PC.
To verify the integrity of the SAVE GAME data you have just transferred, use the PSP's built-in Save Data Utility. Select it from the "Game" menu.

I have a corrupted data file on the saved data utility. How can I get rid of it?


If you are getting the corrupted hard drive message and the Playstation 3's repair does not repair the drive then you may need to format the drive with a computer. The link below will help you do this. Note if you still have trouble with the drive then you may need to replace the drive as it is having hardware problems.

Let me know if you have any more problems or questions.

Corrupted data

I am pretty sure that your MS card is a fake one as these are the symptoms of the fake asian cards. Don`t forget that most of the cards on the web that are sold very cheap compared to the prices in shops are fake...

Psp and getting video output

Hi, my advice would be to make sure you are putting videos that are compatible with psp. In some cases if you try putting a video in a format not compatible with the system the data will appear as corrupted. So, how do you get all videos to the psp. Simple you have to use a video converter before you send videos to your psp video folder. Check this page out for a free video converter:

Corrupted data

If you switch off the power while on autosave, your data will corrupt and no longer exist and still show up. When you format it, the system will not detect the corrupted data. You need to visit a electronics repair cenre to fix it without having to manually format it so it deletes all. Manual formatting is a risk to your PSP's warranty. Good luck anyway.
