Save game file corrupt!

Howdy! For some reason my save games are getting "corrupted". I am not online with my xbox360. I'm using a refurbished 20Gig HD. The problem would only really occur on occasion (after I'd put about 80 some odd hours into "oblivion"!) after i'd hooked up the HD.

any ideas would be appreciated!

thanks

If you have a search on google youll see your not the only one and ive had the same too. This problem seems to occur after a long amount of time has been played. The only thing I can recommend is to try and start again. Couurpted files cannot b repaired. But make sure you save it often and make sure its outdoors. If you can try and get some updates for the game through the net you dont need live subsription. Also try to keep your inventory small.

Save file corrupt when started playing my game


Once a file is corrupt it cannot be saved. (I have dealt with numerous Fallout and Skyrim corrupt saves on Ps3 if I could have saved them I would) Assassins creed black flag is known to have some problems with corrupts but i thought that they were patched (check to see if its up to date)

It keeps telling me a file is corrupted. ive restarted & everything but every time i turn back on the message pops up. Do u know what i can do?


If you get a corrupted file, there really is not anything you can do. Corrupted files are generally caused by somehow forcing a process to stop while it's writing to a file, and that file becomes corrupted. For example, if I am playing a game and I try to save, but then get bored of waiting and turn off the console while it's still saving, the file will become corrupted and unusable.

Don't fall for online scams of tools trying to recover corrupted files, there is really no way to save a file that's been corrupted. You should just delete the file and move on. If it's DLC you can redownload it, if it's a game save you can work your way back.

Our memory card has corrupt data how do we get rid of it.


There are a lot of reasons data on a ps2 memory card can get corrupted. There is no way to completely get rid of them, but they barely take up any room on the card itself. The only risk is that there is a hightened chance that anything else you put on there could be corrupted at some point.

Fall out 3 game keeps freezing


It could be a corrupt game save from way back when you started. Try copying all the game data for Fallout3 onto a memory unit and start again. Although it may take some time to get to where you are up to, once you are there again try and do the mission again. If it works, you know it was a corrupt save.

You could try loading from your first save and see what happens from there but it could be the corrupt file is corrupting the other files too. Remove/Move it from the storage device it is on to another one.
