I'm running an original PS3 on 3.15 and I'm using on of the latest PL3 payloads. I keep trying to backup GOW3 but it just hangs at 4.57 gbs everytime. I've tried cleaning the disk (the few light scratches it has are almost invisible) and copying it to my external HDD instead, same problem.
I've backed up a few other games without issue so I don't understand why its doing crapping out on this particular title. I've tried Open Manager 2.1I, Multiman1.08, and Gaia 1.03.1 (it just crashed on my ps3, I don't think my payload is supported). Is the game the problem or are there any other ideas?
I have no problem playing the game off blu-ray
Try a different copy of the game, I coped that game successfully with ORIGINAL open manger and a ps3break v1.0 while waiting for my board to come in the mail 2/half months ago... played it and beat it from beginning to end no problems.
That Game can only be downloaded to internal, do not waste your time on ext. Your manager is not your issue , you dongle or boad is not your issue, nor is your payload.
