thx for the replies. i use the original backup manager, 3.41, maximus usb and this game always black screens on me no matter where it is. i'm kinda skeptical about switching managers when soo much is under this one. i'm scared it'll mess something up. thx for the help though.
Adding MultiMan will not damage you existing games at all, and will give you a much better interface and compatibility. You can either leave the original Backup Manager on your PS3 or use FTP to move your games to dev_hdd0\GAMES and delete the old BuM. DO NOT delete the original without moving your games or you will loose them.
