Re: saving data on xbox360

Have you tried a different hard drive/memory card? It could be that your hard drive/memory card is not writing the data correctly.

Can you continue a game with a different disc

Hi Jason,

The answer is yes! Whether it be purchasing a copy, renting it from Redbox again, or borrowing it from a friend, any disc you use to play that specific game will be able to access your save data.

This goes for downloaded content as well. Everything is saved to your hard drive.

Happy gaming and thanks for using FixYa!

I put in the game Gran Turismo 5 into my PS3 and instead of loading in the game the screen pops up and says (Accessing game data. Please do not switch off the system while the HDD access indicator is...

This means it's loading your Game Data. There's nothing wrong with this appearing on the screen, it's common and simply indicates that it's loading your last saved state.
If it's stuck on that for a long period of time and not taking you into the game, then you need to go into the Saved Data Utility on your PS3 and delete your saved data file for Gran Turismo 5. Something might be corrupt.
Gran Turismo 5 uses a lot of the PS3's power, so having longer than average load times doesn't mean something is wrong with your PS3.

Nba live Game data

Unless the game data is being saved to a memory card, I would say the hard drive might be going bad on it. Try swapping out the hard drive and then try playing the game again and see if it saves the data properly.

Saved data on Batman is saying its corrupt

you probly upgraded firmware to 3.0 this broke alot of games if you havent already started a new game( this will erase the old saves ) do a system update even if it didnt tell you to, to see if update 3.01 is available. If your already at 3.01 then you may need to start all over or just google ps3 game saves and find one that is about the same level as yours although most are either 50% or 100% complete

PS2 Memory Card slot error! Data may be corrupt.?

as of right now there is no true fix to the problem. deleting the file does nothing to stop the future failing of future saving. the file is indeed not corrupted, however, there is something corrupt with the game and it doesn't matter if you buy a new one because it will happen again. it is the game! it is not the memory card, the save file, or your PS2. i recently purchased a new hobbit game to see if it would solve the saving issue, it did not. as soon as i got to a certain point during the Barrels Out of Bond chapter, it sent an error message first stating there was not enough room on the card, then later on it stated that the data was corrupt. there was enough memory and the file was not truly corrupt. as far as we know, there is no solution to this problem. many people have had this issue though and it would be nice if the game's developers would address the issue.

Madden 09 xbox360

This seems to be a wide spread problem with Madden 09. This is not a hardware issue but just bad software programming it seems. Other people have had luck saving after each game. then exiting back to the dashboard then starting the game again. This seems to clear the "memory leak" or whatever is causing the game to lock up.
