Try to RESTORE FILE SYSTEM on your PSP.
Follow these guide.

HOW TO GO TO THE RECOVERY MENU OF PS3 SYSTEM

1. Make sure the ps3 is plugged in (stand by mode).
2. Put out your usb cable for the controller and the controller itself (do not connect yet).
3. Hold down power firmly, ps3 will turn on and then turn off, release power button when it turns off.
4. Hold down power again, you will hear a beep and then a double beep, when you hear that double beep release the power button.
5. Now you should be seeing something in your monitor that say "Connect usb controller", do just that.
6. After connecting the controller press PS button.
7. You are now in the recovery menu.
8. To fix the problem of corrupt data you can choose #3.
9. If you want to format your hard drive choose #5. Be aware that this option will delete everything that is in your hard drive.
10. Remember that doing #3 and #5 is not 100% to fix the problem of corrupt data, I say about 70%.

Hello

To solve the freezing issue I recommend you do a factory reset on the console.

First back up your settings / game saves by doing a system -> backup on your ps3.


1. power off the ps3 via the power switch in the back
2. turn the switch back on
3. Run a full format via system -> format, it will take around 3 to 4 hours. you may need to get your other video cables in case the hdmi is not detected.
4. then restore your backup if you took one

that should solve the freezing problems.

Ps3 keeps freezing after i updated it when i go play mw2 the whole thing freezes im thinking about getting and xbox cos they dont have these problems


Hey, there are a few reasons this could be happening first of all you might have to little memory available if you are someone like me that never deletes there messages it adds up and slows down your ps3, second what could be happening is the lazer that reads the disk is broken or simply your mw2 is scratched hope this helped:)

I can't play online ps3 games


it could be what type of router are you using? Are you able to sign into the playstation network? You could try setting up a static ip address on your ps3 and setting it as a dmz server. This will open up all ports for your ps3 and should enable you to play games. It should be a workaround for upnp. If you tell me what router make and model your using i can tell you how to do this.

My ps3 freezes in the middle of the cod mw2 game and sometimes when i try to turn it off the ps3 actually freezes, and i have to turn off the ps3 in the back switch


Try this:
  1. Back up your PS3. You will need a PS3-compatible external hard disk drive.

    How to back up your PS3:

  2. Enter Recovery Mode.


  3. Choose "Rebuild Database".
  4. Choose "Restore File System".
Try COD MW2 again.
If COD is still freezing it may be a hardware problem - such as a Blu-Ray drive on it's way to failure. Call Sony.
  • If your system is still under warranty, the only cost will be $30 to ship your system back to Sony; otherwise, Sony will charge $150 to replace your PS3 with a refurbished system.
