I was able to Fix this problem with a couple games by messing around with the PARAM.SFO file. Make a save of the game you want to try and fix on the ps3, then copy that file to a usb stick. Copy it on to your PC and open the PARAM.SFO file with a hex editor and open the "corrupt" or file that is not working withthe hex editor too. There are going to be a couple lines in that wont match up, try changing those and save it.
Be sure to back up the files your going to be messing with.
(If you don't have a USB stick get a ftp server prog for your PS3 and a client for your PC I think it's in the hdd0\home\savedata or something)

SOURCE: games cannot be played.data corrupted

possibly because it is. assuming you have your data backed up, and your memory card is not broken, reformatting should fix this problem.

SOURCE: My Playstation 2 memory card has corrupted data.

well, if it only does this error for one game then maybe the problem is in the game itself? Is the CD a real one? or is it copied with a golden back?
if it is copied then such things can definitely happen.

When i try and play call of duty modern warfare 2 it says " registration of the game trophy information could not be completed. the game will quit." (8002291A)


This could be a problem regarding your game data/save data. You could try deleting the game data and save data of CoD: MW2 on your system. Go to Game Data Utility and Saved Data Utility and delete everything pertaining to Cod: MW2 including any corrupt data. Once that is over, try running the game again.
You should also make sure that your game is updated. If you start up the game and the game is asking for an update, then you should update your game and try running it again.
If you game is not updated, try updating it before doing the game data/save data. If it works, you no longer need to delete the save/game data.

What does this falt code mean? 8002291A and how do i fix it?


Trophy Error 8002291AIt thinks that you are using a save file that no longer matches the trophy data. Essentially your save file or the trophy data is corrupted and no longer accessible. Usually, you just need to wait for the game to update.

If that doesn't work.

Easy fix, delete your saves...hard fix, try and fix the corrupted data.

Memory Card Corrupted


you cannot save another file until you delete previous one.Corruption occurs if the memory card is removed from console or if you reset the game while saving or loading game remember this also happens when you are saving or loading game and electricity turns off.
