PS3 freezing after failed Heavy Rain game install
PS3 freezing after failed Heavy Rain game install –
Hi guys new member here having some problems with my PS3 basically bought a brand new 320 GB slim the other week and used the jailbreak straight away.
Everything was working great no problems then yesterday i tried to transfer the game Heavy Rain to the internal HDD with gaia download manager it did not complete and stuck on 90% then i get the error message corrupted file HDD.
And now as soon as i put the Jailbreak dongle in it freezes the system up in the XMB and the icons take ages to appear just keep spinning if you play a game it keeps cutting out anyone else seen this???
Help would be appreciated
and does it work without Dongle ? if not try this :
try to rebuild database in Recovery Mode
Thanks amp for reply i was on FW 3.41 with a dongle i have tried doing a full format also rebuilding database in recovery mode.
Yesterday i thought i would try updating the FW now using the 3.55 without dongle still having the same problem but playing games in the blueray seems fine im so pissed that i wanted that Heavy Rain on the internal and its a brand new PS3 slim ??
OK make sure you have the latest PL3 on your dongle and then use Rogero Manager 7.8 .and see if its gunna make difference .
Now ive updated to the custom 3.55 firmware not using a dongle now bud

I ripped my copy of Heavy Rain using MultiMAN on 3.55 Kmeaw, and I never had an issue. I'm using a 160GB Slim.
Thanks Dark it was on exteral HDD tried to move it to internal and didn't complete and now i have gor all the freezing problems as its under warranty do you think a could do a full format and call sony or would they know about the jailbreaking on the PS3??
I had a similar problem withone of my new ps3's. Somehow the internal HD got corrupted. I tried everything, tried to repair the file system, reformatted through the ps3, removed the hard drive and formatted it with my pc, tried again to format it with the ps3. Nothing worked. I replaced the hard drive and it solved the problem. I now use the original hard drive as a backup drive in an external enclosure.
