SOURCE: Brand new PS3 80GB - says I don't have enough HDD space!!!

this is a known big in the game , i listed the report below

We have identified a data loading issue with PS3 and Ratchet & Clank Tools of Destruction, which may affect users who boot the game up for the first time.

During the pre-game set-up procedure, game data is automatically saved to the PS3 HDD. It has been found that, on occasion, this data fails to copy to the HDD, with an on-scree message claiming that there is insufficient space to do so - despite the fact that there is in fact enough free space on the drive.

ACTION: For every 4GB of HDD space, there is a 540MB range that will cause the game to display a message indicating that there is insufficient space to create game data. This message will therefore occur when the following amount of free space is on the HDD:

- 4010-4550MB;
- 8010-8550MB;
- 12010-12550MB;
- at every subsequent 4GB interval (i.e 16010-16550MB, etc)

If the PS3 HDD is within any of these ranges when booting without game data created, this message will appear. After game data is created, this will never appear, so if a user doesnt encounter it at first, they never will. Any users who do receive this message will need to either delete data from or save data to the HDD, so that the amount of free space no longer lies within the range detailed above

SOURCE: Brand new PS3 says not enough memory to play game

If this is a PS2 game that you are playing on the PS3 you need to set up a internal seperate memory card for that game and that will fix your problem how to set up a internal memory card goto the icon that says game scroll up till you see memory card utility click it then click new internal memory card.

I downloaded a SoulCalibur IV demo and tried running Ratchet and Clank: Tools of Destruction again and it allowed me to continue on to the main menu this time.

SOURCE: Insufficient HDD space to play a game on a brand new ps3

This is a common problem (bug) with this game. Basically you have to delete something, anything, off your harddrive. If you have nothing on then download a demo or something then delete it. This should fool yr ps3 into releasing the space you need to play r&c.

My ps3 says i have 37gb free, i am trying to play a game that requires 16gb, but every time i try to start the game it says i need to free up more mb, i deleted everything i could and cant delete any more....


Hi,
Please run another knowing good game that requires more that 16 gb on your ps3. If it works, your game that requires 16gb is fail. But if still the same please increase the empty space of your ps3 to it works.

Good evening when I start my ps3 with no disc in it it freezes on the begining screen cannot move to ps3 system update or anything to figure out what the issue is I have an original ps3 120gb it stated I...


Sorry, i dont have a solution for the freezing, but, as for freeing up some space; If you have alot off music of videos on there delete them and run them off of a portable USB device (USB key works, but so does and iPod). Do the same with music. Another solution is to delete some of your saved game files. Under the games section on the XMB, there is something called game data or similar to that. Delete some of the files from games you don't play anymore. Also delete game demos you have finished with. These will be located in the very bottom folder under Games. Freeing up some hardrive space may also help with your freezing problem.

Hope this helps,
- Matt

Note - To delete, press triangle and select delete.

I dont not wy i can't play


many games load data on to the hdd to keep load time down. If your hard drive is full you can upgrade to a lager unit or erase the data you no longer need. btw all ps3 use a 2.5" sata hd with a 5400rpm speed. You can put in a 500gb if you wanted. You would need to back up all your data first. you can also setup the ps3 to use a external hard drive for storage.

Hello. Your games wouldn't run slow even if you only had 1GB of memory left. The only time the hard drive will cause a game to run slow is loading a saved game. Anyother time it would have no effect.

If you have doubts, run a PS3 restore/quick format. That will clear everything, even the hard drive. OR you can put in a different hard drive.

Most likely your laser is dirty, disks are dirty or scratched or the laser is getting ready to fail.

most likely your hard drive is full.
Go to Settings-System settings-System information. it should tell you free space on your hard drive from your total available space.
Your drive is probably filled with demos and saved data from previous games, maybe music or even dowloaded movies.
If still had the same issue after the restore there is a chance that your hard drive was swapped for a very small one. ckeck the system info first:

Free space : 12 GB/37 GB this is for a 40 gb

If that is the problem you need a different hard drive (SERIAL ata 5400 rpm ).. upgrading the hard is easy.. or even go with an external drive.
