can't get rid of ghost images on XMB
can't get rid of ghost images on XMB –
a while back i was runing Game data Mode so i could play some of the old psx pkg games from my usb hard drive instead of the internal. they worked great but sadly the hard drive i was using them on didn't fair so well and died on me. so i got a new hard drive but now i have a bunch of ghost images on my xmb as the hard drive they were on is now gone.
if i try to delete them it comes up "system storage cannot be accessed"
even tried reinstalling but the ghost stay as they the name the ps3 gives to the usb is different from the old hard drive.
is there a way to get rid of these ghost images??
What is "Game data Mode"?
its the program so games that normally can be played only from internal can be used from external instead
Just run the game, it won't run, and it will probably reboot your XMB or PS3 and the icon will be gone. And then repeat this with the next one and so on.
Or, go into your Recovery Menu and run a reset database or rebuild database--that will get rid of all the ghost icons in one hit. It will also wipe out your customized folders for the games and etc, so make sure you remember what they used to be called before you do it, so you know how to rearrange them. You won't lose your games nor the ones installed on your Internal HDD. But make sure you have all external HDDs disconnected before you do this. Also eject any disc inside your tray before you do.
But if you do have another external HDD with PSN games, then I would suggest to not run Recovery Menu, since it will clean out those icons as well, and you will have to reinstall just the "fixes" pkgs for each game so they return in EXT GAME DATA mode.
