BLAMO! It is now loading Grand Turrismo 5 for me!!!!! TYVM!!!!! You ROCK!

The problem is you are using controller 2 or higher. You need to use controller 1 to ack this screen.  I had my guitar hero controller in still!

My son has been playing on gran turismo 5 and suddenly the ps3 is saying there is not enough space on the hard drive. Despite deleting data it is still saying the same thing. Error message is...


The message should tell you exactly how much free space you need to free up on your hard drive. GT5 takes up an atrocious amount of hard disk space, and it just gets worse with each new patch. How much hard disk space do you currently have free?

Granttirismo does not open on racetracs keep on loading but does not open


Hello educare have and welcome to FixYa. I see you are having issues with loading your game data in Gran Turismo 5 for the PS3. Sadly it appears that your game data has been corrupted and the data will have to be reinstalled but before we go with that method lets try this first.

1- Go to the Gran Turismo Main Menu and select Options on the lower right half of the screen.

2- Now you will have to scroll down to the bottom of the Options Menu until you see Advanced Options and select it.

3- Now you will see an option to Salvage Data. Select it.

4- Your PS3 will now attempt to recover your data. If the screen after a few moments says Data Recovered then you are good to go however if it says Data Recovery Failed we now have to take more drastic options.

5- Quit your game and return to the XMB menu.

6- Go to Game Data located in the Game Data section.

7- Find and select your Gran Turismo 5 file and press the SQUARE button.

8- You will see the option to delete the file. Select that option.

9- Now we have just deleted your Game Data file but not your Game Save Data file.

10- Return to your game and then retry loading your tracks. If all works out your tracks should load and all of your car collection data and profile will still be fully intact.

I hope you found this information useful and I wish you the very best of luck educare and thank you 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.

Only one controller can work at a time


You will need to pair the second controller. To do this power on your ps3 as normal with the controller that works, then plug in your second controller via usb and press the "PS" button. The red LED's should flash and then the second led should stay on.

You should be able to play normally.

GT 5/PS 3 frozen??


I had the exact same problem (and apparently many others did as well). I did have a Rock Band dongle plugged into the PS3 when the problem occurred. I don't know if that was a contributing factor or not. I unpluged the Rock Band dongle, then connected the (wireless) PS3 controller directly to the PS3 console with a USB cable, then I turned off the system and restarted it a few minutes later. I was then able to click on OK and proceed with the installation.

If this is Gran Turismo 4 you are talking about, then if you still have the save file on your memory card from Gran Turismo 3 you can transfer your credits and all your license data over to Gran Turismo 4. In Gran Turismo 4 go to Home>Status>and it should give you an option somewhere on the bottom on the screen to transfer data, I think you press the square button. It has been a while since I've played Gran Turismo 4.
