Certain games copy gigs and gigs of data over during first install to speed up game play, otherwise you would be waiting forever for certain games to load.

GTA and Metal Gear take up a ton of space.

The best solution for you is to get an external FAT32 usb drive with at least 80gb of free space on it, backup your PS3 to it, and then upgrade your hard drive to a 250gb or 320gb SATA drive from Best Buy. They're going for $49.99 and below so it's a cost effective upgrade.

Once you've got the new drive swapped in you just have to follow the on screen prompts and RESTORE your PS3 from the backup you created earlier and you are good to go ;)

Hi my name is chris and I have a game that I bought last year and i am 11 years old. when i got this there was no scratches but when my family was moving and i was at school at that time my brothers were...


It is possible that your game is scratched up enough that you can't play it directly on your xbox 360... BUT you might still be able to play it is you can save it to your Xbox 360 hard drive. You might need to try it a few times to get it to read and work but try following these instructions for installing the game from your CD directly onto your Hard drive. You will still need to have the CD in your Xbox 360 to play but it will be reading from your hard drive if you can install it. Good luck:

To install a game on your hard drive loadTOCNode(2, 'moreinformation');
  1. Insert the game disc into the disc drive.

    Note After you insert the disc, the default option is to automatically start the game. If this happens, exit the game and return to the Xbox Dashboard.

  1. Insert the game disc for the game you want to delete from your hard drive.
  2. Go to My Xbox, and then select the game you want to delete.

the xbox does not allow this in order to stop piracy, you can enable your xbox to play games off a usb if you flash it. its not an easy thing to do but if you want to learn how, look it up on google

Your PS3 may have an error in the harddrive that causes this, I recommend that you buy a new harddrive that is cheap. and copy save data onto it then clear all memory on the original harddrive. It may also be a corrupted save.

Age of empires save game problem


I had the same problem several times with AoE Rise of Rome , when I try to load a saved game it crashes to windows with an error .. first I tried to solve it by saving the game more times in a row , like three or four times , but once all four of my saves were corrupted or whatever so I tried to save the game while not having any building or unit selected . So far it works fine , but some saves where I had sth selected worked also . DON'T KNOW if this is a TRUSTY solution , but as I said I had no errors so far.

Installing new "used" 20 MB Hard drive


there are only a few games for the 360 that require a hard drive in the first place (but without one you wont be able to save your game).
if you have one, the only possibility i can think of is maybe the hard drive is full, in which case you just need to delete a few things off of it. most games dont need very much space.

note: I'm not sure what you mean by new games and regular games. so if this doesn't help, make another post clarifying and ill see what i can do.
