Same. Till I remembered Oblivion and Fallout 3. Man the loss of that Data was like a kick in the nuts.

Thanks guys, i tried the reformat yesterday and it took four and a half hours but still the same, after a bit of research on the net i think the blu ray disc reader is at fault, it wont play anything, i checked my receipt and it seems the warranty expired 11 days ago pale Mad

Are the level ups not saved on a server?
Bugger that, save it to USB Six. Thats what I'm doing, getting ready to Transfer all my Data over to the new slim when I get it. Giving the Fatty to a friend.

Ah christ, that sucks Steve. You can either get it sent for repairs or whatever. You get yours through Gamestop? Mine was out of warranty too, but I went in and they took the old one and gave me another one on the spot, but had to pay the repair costs or whatever.

I bought mine from a store called Game, i have just got back from there and because the warranty has expired (11 days) they wont do anything about it Sad

That might be a pain, but on the bright side at least your sorted eventually. What are you going to do with the free time you now have?

Good Jesus I know more about whats happening on those things than I want to.

That would be nice just to replace it but i guess because it is out of warranty they may want to try and repair it first??

I said it over at MyRes, but I'll say it here too.
Your R2 data should be fine. Well, mostly fine. Depends on how much of your Co-op Data was from offline games.
Everything else is stored on the server. You'll just have to enter your same PSN Name and Password on the new one. That'll give you back your trophies, friends list, etc.
You will have to redownload any PSN purchased games you previously had. And, of course, your normal game data is gone. Sad
Now, if it isn't your hard disk that's fried, you can remove it, hook it up to a computer, and transfer all the data. Then just put it back in.
Either way, good luck to both of you, and I hope you get it sorted out soon.

The unlocks are not no. Unless they changed that in an update.
That's why there was such a big stir 3 or 4 months after launch.
I cant save anything. There is no access to the xmb. The light just blinks red. Sad

Most likely they'll send you back a refurbished one, but I cant say for sure.

Thanks Monkey

Did they fix that then? Because it didnt used to save to a server. Thats why I had to re-level so many times.
The games from the store I wasnt too worried as I knew they were just a download away, but I had a lot. Its gonna take a while to dl them all again.
The biggest loss in this is the 2 alt accounts I had that I handed off to each of the two younger kids. No way in hell Ill ever remember those e mail or passwords, and they love what trophies they have.
I havent figured out a good way to break the news to them.
Nate is gonna freak out.

Nate is gonna freak out.

After my--*sniffle*--tragic, tragic loss, I went back to play again, and everything was there except for the exp from offline games. Since you can't play ranked offline, my competitive data was fine. I just lost the 13 levels for my Soldier that I had gained offline, which sucked, yes, but could've been worse.
To check your hard disk, you just have to pry open that little panel on the side, take out the blue screw (careful, it's sorta soft and you don't want to strip it), grab the little gray part that sticks out of the bottom and slide it to the side, then pull. The hard disk will come right out.
Now, as for hooking it up to a computer...not sure. I'm sure you can find a tutorial to help you. It'd be great if you could save your data.

Tip: Record the kiddies email/passwords somewhere next time. Razz
I sense a big fit in your future. Condolences. Sad

Well, I just dismantled my machine.
Ive kept the hd and got the disc out. Sadly there were other losses.
Does anyone know, if i do get a new machine, can I just swap these hd's even though it would be downgrading in size?
At least I wouldn't have to go through all the downloads.

Hi Six

yes you can use the HDD in new machine, HOWEVER it will reformat itself automatically to match your new machine, so all data will be erased on your HDD

Right. That's why you gotta transfer it to computer first. Then to flash drive, then to new machine.

You'll probably have to redownload all paid content you want in the end. But at least then you can pick and choose what you want i suppose. I have some stuff i'd love to delete but that would require me deleting all the other stuff that its attached to.
