IF the sandisk is not formatted as Fat32 then the new PS3s will not recognize it. To format to fat32 follow these steps:
1. Transfer all the data onto a PC or another thumb drive.

2. go to START, CONTROL PANEL, ADMINISTRATIVE TOOLS, COMPUTER MANAGEMENT, and select DISK MANAGER on the left hand side options. Select the external drive and read the "File System" type. If it says "NTFS", right click the disk and select "Delete Partition".

3. Reformat the drive as FAT32

4. Once you are SURE the partition is FAT32, open "My Computer" and double-click on your empty external hard drive. Now, you will want to create a folder system identical to that on the Playstation 3. Right click to create a new folder and name the first folder "Photo". Do this for "Music", "Video" and "Game". When you are finished, you should have 4 folders total in the hard drive. Each folder should (at this point) be empty.

5. Now transfer your saved information into the correct folders, safely remove the drive, and you are ready to go.

When I try to load my Madden 25 files I get an error box that says, "The file you are trying to load was deleted or damaged and cannot be used." Anyone know how to fix this


Unfortunately you can't, unless you have uploaded a recent save to the PS3 cloud save data. If you have, just download the file you need and you should be good to go. corrupted data is never easy to fix, and you may have to just start over.

Why is my new game saintsrow the third keep frezzing and the sound keeps going in and out


Just like anything else that is mass produced there are sometimes defective parts. The disc that it was made from could have a defect in it.
I would suggest taking the game back to the store and exchanging it for another.
Most stores will let you exchange with a receipt.
And don't worry about your saved game data it will still be there!

I am on my 2nd Ps3 & i lost all my game progress when i moved the data from the old Ps3 useing an ethiernet cable and did a data transfer all my back grounds pics & music were on the new system but...


Quickest way is to put all gamesaves on a flash drive, most files will not take up a lot of space. Your profile can be retrieved through Playstation Network and all game updates and DLC can be redownloaded. Recommend that you also save your save files to your PC, to insure that you have all of them backed up in case you have any other catastrophic issues. Also, depending on the reason your ps3 is crashing, you can remove your hard drive from dying PS3 and place in current PS3 as well. There are several forums and videos on how to do this on the net. But make backup of game saves first! Hope this helps.

Only god of war wont work


Are you running the latest firmware 3.21?

If yes, I would try deleting the Game Data for GOW3 then try again. Hopefully it's just corrupt game data.

Let me know.

Old ps3 wont turn on, want to retrieve game saves for new ps3


You have the yellow light of death (YLOD). You won't be able to turn on your old ps3 until you get it repaired. OR you CAN put your old hard drive in the new system then do the backup option from the system menu. It will have you upload the data to an external usb drive or Ipod or flash memory drive. Then put your new hard drive back in and do the system recovery option. Hope that helps.

I have saved all my data from my 60gb ps3 onto mem stick but cant download to my new slim ps3 helpppppppp


what type of data if its game saves you accually have to goto game saves on XMB and look in mem stick then hit triangle to copy them to the HDD. videos and other stuff should just show up under videos. basicly everything you copied over you have to goto that area of the XMB to copy it back.

are you seeing the data just not able to copy it or what?

yes , these type of games are known as copyrighted games which dont allow you change , copy , edit thier original location.
there are two ways in which you can copy them mto a memory stick....
Either try to download the game to memory stick directly without installing it on ur PC or
Second way is to check whether the game is in a read only mode or not
There are illegal ways to copy them to memory stick...
There are hacking softwares available on net thru which you can by pass the copyright that is applied on the game . but....... not recomemnnded at all. ( Not recommended )
