God of War 3 backup from disc problem
God of War 3 backup from disc problem –
I've been trying to backup my copy of God of War 3 and i'm not having a lot of luck. It gets to 89%, and then won't transfer anymore. It doesn't freeze, since I can still abort the transfer etc, but no more data transfers and remaining time slowly increases. I've tried this about three times now and it always happens in the exact same place, on the /USRDIR/POS.PSARC file.
I've tried cleaning the disc which hasn't helped, and the disc has got no scratches whatsoever. I could download the game (since I own the actual disc copy), but the game is over 30gb, so i'd rather make that a last resort.
I'm not having any problems transfering any other game, and I backed up my copy of Final Fantasy XIII yesterday with no problem, and that was a 40gb game, so I can't imagine the games size being a problem. I'm using MultiMAN 2.00.02.
Does anyone have any ideas why this might be?
That PSARC suffix indicates a packed archive file, which often means that it is a HUGE file, taking lots and lots of time to transfer, especially if you are using an external drive.

How long did you wait until you gave up and stopped your backup attempt ?
And was it the internal HDD or an external USB drive that you were transferring the game to ?

The file itself is around 1.5gb, and there are other PSARC files on the disc that have transferred fine with no problem, which are actually even bigger in size.
I'm transferring it to my internal HDD. last time I attempted it I left it for close to an hour. I might try again in a sec and leave it for much longer, whilst I try and download it at the same time and see which one finishes first.
i had the same problem a few days ago
turns out it was just a dirty disc
wiped it off, an it was good to go
give cleaning it a try
