When i join a game i usually play fine. I can then leave the lobby to my own so i can invite my friends into and i cannot join a match and the only way to join one is by disconnecting from live and connecting again but when i do this i lose all my xp from when i have been playing :/ is there anything i can do to stop this? thanks

Usually, this is due to your friends inviting you then they enter a game so you can't join their lobby. Try talking to your friend at the same time and make sure they dont enter a game so you can get to their lobby once they've invited you.
If you are playing the same game as a friend, you can press the ps button and bring up their name in your friends list, press triangle and select either join game, or invite friend. But first you have to be inside a pregame lobby in order to invite someone. If however you are connecting via LAN which is linking two PS3's together then you have to use the LAN setting instead of online play.
I have experienced this several times and although it does not work every time it has improved since the first day. There will be released several patches for the online bugs.
Meanwhile you can try this to see if it works for you:
1. When you friend sends you invite, click the middle button on your remote which takes you to playstation menu screen. 2. Go to account management and click TRIANGLE 3. Sign off then sign back ON 4. Then go to your inbox or invite menu 5. Find your friend's invite and click join game.
Try turning off your console and turning it back on- that's what I did. Are you using a wireless adapter? If so, then it may have trouble connecting. Try moving it to an area closer to your router. Also, the cod5 servers **** lol, so it may clear up in time. If you haven't checked already, make sure his game isn't full.
from the opening menu choose online and then either play now, or goto lobby. If you goto lobby choose lobby, (for starters pick my skill level) and then you can click on someones name and invite to a game, or if the invite you it will say so on the scrolling info bar at the bottom of the screen, thier name will also have a lightning bolt next to it if they invited you. click on them accept invite and try and win. my ID is dannmidge on the ps3 if you want to add me and we can play.
If you have a Wirless connection, try resetting your router. This helps alot and is normally the solution to your problem. If not then it could be that your playstation console is to far away from your router. Try moving it closer to the router to boost the signal and stop the signal from been fragmented.
Hey there, this can be from multiple problems actually, from having the player requesting you as an "avoided" player or simply having the game lobby full and unable to join. if there is an avoided player in the lobby you are trying to join this can often lead to you not being able to join the lobby. Other more advanced problems could be caused by router/modem problems and/or restrictions set in place on them, but that is definitely beyond me. you would have to contact your internet service provider. One other thing, see if you can invite them to a game with you in it and see if they can accept. Hope this helped, Jared
after endless hours of trying to play online we finally found out what the problem was -
check your discs you should have a serial on there if one ends in uk & the other ends in uk then you should be able to play together
if one ends i unk & the other ends in us then this is why you cnanot join or you cannot connect to host
This is the FIX
create another user then create another playstaion account now you both need to creathe this in unites states with another mail account - fill out the address in florida californail post code 90210 - once this is done youshould then be able to join up in the call of duty lobby but unfortunatley your stats are afresh
