[Answered] Suddenly my backed up games freeze on load?
I have ripped some of my games to internal HDD. They all worked fine for some days, until today. Now only two games work, the rest freezes when i load them from XMB. The PS3 hangs, and I have to flick the powerswitch to get the console back up.
I can choose games in Backup Manager, and they will show in XMB, but will freeze after about a second. I have tried to reset the PS3, but still a no-go. Can anyone help me out?
Have you tried playing it without "jailbreaking it!" (ie with an original game) to test if it is the ps3 or something else?, I mean can you get hold of another jailbreak device to test that? Have you tried re installing the backup manager?
I had issues like this on my original install of backup manager. I'd get locked up on black screen after booting a game from the hard drive, and other games would just automatically launch (instead of going directly back to XMB after choosing which game to run). I downloaded the backup manager package (didn't even need to unstall the old one) and it solved all problems. I know you've already tried reinstalling it, but maybe get a version from another site and try that?
Whatever you do, DO NOT UNINSTALL BACKUP MANAGER. That is if you don't want to have to re-backup all of your games. Just re-install, and everything thing should be peachy-keen again. I had the exact same issue as mentioned in the above quote.
