I did what you said and managed to load the game, thanks Portalcake. But the problem now is that I keep getting an error message "corrupted game file, you must delete game data before playing...." when trying to load the game from app_home, then I get directed back to the xmb. When I try loading the game from multiMan I get directed back to the xmb also.
I did try installing sleeping dogs update 1.02 but it still gives me the error message after the update completes. I tried deleting the game data, ignoring the 1.02 update, re-copying the files etc but nothing will work. Any assistance please!
delete all game data for sleeping dogs, install the 1.02 update and the run it with a disk in the drive (not from app home) it will start,
then it will black screen, but if you look at your ext.hd light it will be blinking, (not the one on ps3).
after about 2 or 3 min. the ps3 HDD indicator will begin to flash. and about 1 min later it will start.
if this don't work, the only thing i can think of is your download is corrupt, the solution is go buy the game and use multiman to back it up. it will definitely work.
the black screen and slow loading only happens the first time you play it.

Thanks! I will try that. The only problem is that I'm doing all this on a PS3 with a broken BD, I will have to swap it with a working one from spare parts. So is Sleeping Dogs even capable of running discless?
