You have a corrupted file. Somewhere on your hardrive there is information from your game, and since its corrupt, you can't install the information.
Are you able to download it and have you installed it before, matters greatly in this example though.
If you've tried every safemode option including in your settings, then you 100% need a new hardrive, or delete everything on your hardrive. This is not a function Ps3 has in its options, nor will they tell you.

Somewhere on your hardrive is old info stored and corrupted and that is why you can't play. You must remove every bit of it.

I have a problem with my ps3 (ntc j ) it is 8001002b i need i solition plz think you

Hello moho16
This error refers to a problem regarding external storage devices. Try the following steps:
1. Try removing then re-inserting the storage device.
2. Try an alternate storage device.
If multiple storage devices produce the same error message, then you probably have a hardware problem, which will mean sending your PS3 in for servicing. If your PS3 is still under warranty, take it back to the retailer you purchased it from. Otherwise, check with your local Playstation website for instructions on how to send it back to Sony directly.
Hope this helps, good luck.

Error 8001002B

That is the common "dirty disc" error. If it happens with every game, it more than likely means that your Blu-Ray diode is dirty. Do you have the PS3 in a dusty environment? Be sure to clean the vents on the side, above the USB ports and on the back of the PS3 on a daily basis. A quick swipe of a soft cloth will do.

You can try several solutions for your problem, the most common to buy a can of air and blow it inside the disc drive in hopes of cleaning the diode. You can also try a CD/DVD cleaning disc.

If it happens with every disc this could also mean a dreaded Blu-Ray drive failure, or in your case, one that is in the process of failing.

If cleaning it does not work, I highly recommend you give Sony support a ring.

I get the error message on my ps3 :8001002B

I Believe that this means you have a dirty disc. Try cleaning it and starting again if you haven't. IF that doesn't work then the disc has corrupt info on it or is damaged!! I hope this helps!!!
