My son's file on ps3 COD modern warfar 2 game says "file data is corrupted". Is there anyway he can get his saved game back? He's been playing it since Christmas and it totally crushed that he lost his game out of nowhere. : (
Any ideas on if it can be fixed? Or does he have to start all over again...

Yea, this is crazy. mine has corrupted 3 times, so this forth time, every time I'm done playing,wait 30 seconds/ i sign everyone's gamer tag out/ go back to the main menu of call of duty/hold the middle button of the remote controller/ a list pops up and you click QUIT GAME/ then you get to your home page and you wait for 30 seconds at the home page/ then you simply hold down the power button at the front of your play station until the light on your play station turns red/ then you hit the main power switch at the main back of your console.
this method has worked for months
currently i prestiged 5 times and on level 44. not to brag or anything
hopes it helps

He will have to start all over again.

Help him think of this as a good reason to replay the amazing singleplayer of MW2.

If it makes him feel any better, I lost 10 games worth of data the weekend before Christmas when I got the Yellow Light of Death and I stupidly took out the Hard Disk Drive. I'm still waiting for the repair guys to fix it.

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.

Hi i get an error code of 8001050f when i go to play my video games can you tell me how to fix it so i can play my games

go to the play stations web site to find out what the code means.

if your ps3 has a message of trophy registration error sony will say you need to turn in your ps3 for service this is not true i fixed mine by saving my game data on a thumbstick then deleted the game save data shut off my ps3 then turned the main power (the switch in the back) off for a few minutes to allow the power to dissipate. Then i restarted the ps3 copied my game save data back and my COD modern warfare 2 played like a champ!
i did lose all of my trophies but the game saved data allowed for 12 percent of them to come back apon completing one special op mission.

My ps3 has seemed to delete my Modern Warfare 2 Game Data files, but every time i go back on the game it starts up as if ive never played it before, anybody know whats wrong?


If you lost your save file it sounds like the file for the save got corrupted. I would recommend that you go through the link below to format your hard drive after backing up your other save files. This will cleanup any problems with the data on the drive. After doing this and you still have trouble then you will need to look at replacing the hard drive.

Let me know if you have any more problems or questions

Data keeps getting corrupted for the offline profiles on Modern Warfare II

I got corrupted data by turning off my ps3 during an update. Remember not to turn off during an auto save or to suddenly hit the switch in the back. always best to turn off from the controller or the thing next to eject

Call of Duty Modern Warfare 2 for PS3. Getting

if you have a usb flash drive.
copy your game save files to it and delete the whole game including the saved games.

re-install and you should still have your saved game on the usb stick

copy this over and it should work.

if its the game save itself that is corrupted, then i'm afraid you have to start the game over again

Search 'how to copy ps3 game saves' and you'll find plenty of good step by step instuctions
