Hi, I'm in the middle of the process of installing all my games after my old fat model YLOD'ed on me.

You are watching: Ps3 freezes when installing game data

Got myself a new bundle package and install a couple of games just fine and then L.A. Noire decides to stop halfway through.

I can press the ps button on the controller and move about the menu just fine.

The only possible solution I've heard about is after an hours worth og google usage is that I have to shut it off, delete the game file and start over. The only problem is that I've read elsewhere that this might be bad for the PS3.

Anyone ready to calm my tits and tell me how to handle this?

Hi this happened to me (Super slim model) when I was installing Batman Arkham City. Try the power button. If it doesn't work you''re going to have to unplug it. Leave it for 30 seconds plug it back in.

Your ps3 is going to ask you if you want to restore the corrupted data. I chose not too but it is highly recommended you choose yes however if can take a couple hours depending on HDD size.

If everything is okay so far...

Go to the game data utility and delete any data related to the game that froze during install. If it a digital game I recommend deleting the game as well and redownloading.

Best of luck. Feel free to post an update I will try to help however I can.

All right, I have to pop out for 30 min or so. I'm gonna leave it installing and see if it picks up.

If not, I'll use your method.

All right, I tried your method and deleted everything related to the game and the game installs and takes me to the main menu... but, the game freezes a few seconds after that and I had to turn off the console, delete everything related to the game from game data utilities and the same thing happens over and over again.

Leave it running and take a nap, if still stuck restart it. It hasn't boned my system yet.
