Corrupted save files

My FIFA 2005 and 06 data was corrupted due to the fact that I had hot-swapped mem. cards and used a 3rd party or aftermarket card to save the data and not only the career ,squads and tournament data were screwed up but my entire games were too. any help with what i'm experiencing (it happened about 16 months now and it simply won't stop!!!)

Unfortunately, there's not much you can do to retrieve your corrupted data. This happened to my entire memory card at one point. This usually happens if you take out the memory card or turn off the power when it's saving but memory cards can possibly fail on their own as well. Since you've had the problem for six months, simply reinserting it and trying again probably won't work (but it does in some cases). Your only hope is to reformat it and start over... sorry.

I'm not sure what you mean about the entire game being screwed up, this wouldn't have anything to do with the memory card data.

How do you restored formatted pictures back to the camera

I have had success with this photo recovery program... Download the program

You have to use a card reader either on your computer or an external USB card reader. Put the card in the card reader, open the recovery program, then select the drive where files are deleted, then press "Start" and wait for it to do it's magic.

Can I rescue deleted photos ?

You can often successfully recover deleted files from a PC, phone or camera memory card or USB Memory stick, it just depends on what's happened since the files were deleted.
When you delete files the data itself isn't deleted, just the index entry that says where the data for those files is located. The space containing the deleted files is also now marked as free space so it is available to the system for any new files to be written there instead.

If and when that happens, then it becomes too late to recover your deleted files so it is very, very important to not save any new files or data to the device concerned.
If the deleted files are on a memory card or USB memory stick, just don't save any new files to it.

One of the easiest ways to see if you can recover deleted files is to try some file recovery software. Recommended this data recovery as it saved my life many times.

Memory card reads saved data, but will not save games...

if the specific game save data is corrupted while saving(turn off the system while saving or electricity goes off) it can happen.

simply start the system without any disc in it, got to browser, u can see memory card , go inside it you can see the save files try to delete the files and the system config file also. if you cannot delete the it is done using 3rd party software which u can buy it in the websites

thank you

Hi whilst playing fifa 10 on my ps3 i turned it off and it didn't say it was autosaving, it deleted that file and now i can't save a new file on my fifa 10 and on viewing save files on the system it says...

there might be no space on the memory card, Take the game out and load up the playstation then if the page is full then you have no room left, it happend to me. After that all you have got to do is delete some stuff, if you dont want to then buy another memory card and put it in slot 2.

Our memory card has corrupt data how do we get rid of it.

There are a lot of reasons data on a ps2 memory card can get corrupted. There is no way to completely get rid of them, but they barely take up any room on the card itself. The only risk is that there is a hightened chance that anything else you put on there could be corrupted at some point.
