What could cause every PSP save game to become corrupted?

  • What could cause every PSP save game to become corrupted? Memor-X

    I was setting up my PSP 2000 to my TV using a Component to HDMI Upscaler so that like all my other consoles, is connected to a single HDMI channel, how after that I had planned to start a new game in Shin Megami Tensei Persona 2 this time using a walk though so that I could do all the side quests (because a lot are apparently missable), to make it complete, I planned to delete the save games, install data and system config.

    Just as I was about to I found the first file in the list saying it was corrupted, I tried to look though to see what game it could have been but my guess was that it was my Black Rock Shooter Save as that was the last game I was playing on it and the save before was Black Rock Shooter, however I suspect it was the save I made just before I first met Nana.

    So anyway, after accepting that it probably was Black Rock Shooter I went to delete the system config file, right after that, all the save games but 3 became corrupted, the 3 was a Shin Megami Tensei Persona System Config File, a Fate/Extra Save and a Disgaea save, since the Disgaea file was my most recent one nearing the end of the game I thought I'd back up since I couldn't delete the corrupted data via the PSP and I wanted to back up the Disgaea file, however when I plugged my PSP into the computer and went to PSP/SAVEDATA there was nothing in there, my computer is showing hidden files and not hiding system files so I can see every file, also, in the properties of the removable drive the PSP became it showed it had more memory than what the PSP was saying.

    I've looked up how to try and recover the corrupted data, some suggested using the file system however since I couldn't even find the Save Games that was a bust, the other method use this Magic Save thing but reading it it said "Install like any other App", considering that I never installed an app and most likely would do it from PSN I would assume that this program was for a hacked PSP, with little option I had to reformat.

    I am wondering what could cause so much of my save data to become corrupted like that as it makes no sense, it doesn't seem to have done it again but I want to know what could cause this so that I can better prepare for the future since I've looked probably a total of 100+ hours of gameplay.

  • I was transferring the storage data for GTA 5, and my xbox froze. I had the message saying don't turn it off, but I didn't know what else I could do. Once I turned it back on, the data looked like it was transferred properly, so I didn't think anything of it. Until I tried to play the game, anyways. Any other time you would see the police lights and whatnot. Now, its just a blank black screen, but it tells me who's online at the time. How can I fix this?

  • I would like to record some game play and I have the required cables to do this on the PSP 3000. My problem is that my game saved game file is on a PS Vita and when I try to copy the saved game to my PSP 3000 it tells me that the data is corrupted.

  • My Xbox 360 USB stick came up corrupted after I tried to bring over my dad's Forza Motorsport 3 save files as well as the Motorsport Legends Car and Track Pack.

  • FFVII and Gran Turismo on it, using the same memory card for both. The card looks like the genuine Sony article, and came with the console. However, I have been having problems with the FFVII savegames becoming corrupted. I had to start over from halfway through the first disc not long ago because both of the savegames that I had been alternating between had become corrupted. (I now rotate between three savegames and have been saving at every opportunity). The GT savegames have not been corrupting, but I have a sneaking suspicion that this game could be causing the problem, as the FFVII games have

  • I'm spoiled by being able to back up all of my save/game data on my PS3, PC, Vita etc, so I'm a little concerned that there isn't a straight up "back up all the things" option in the Wii U settings. I've heard some icky backup suggestions like manually copying files. However, since you can move games/their saves over 100% to an external source (which I should then be able to back up), it seems like if all my game/save content is on an external device I should be able to back up that device and keep all my content, right? So if all my content is on an external drive can I really back it up

  • via Steam, and 10 bucks seemed a good deal in my book anyway. Also, I like the Steam platform. My save games and other data are probably going to be compatible two expansions up, so I'm not worried about those, but what do I do with my existing RCT3 installation itself? Do I need to get rid of that first before having Steam install RCT3: Platinum? ...I've had a retail copy of RollerCoaster Tycoon 3 since it first came out, which was several years ago. It's a great game. I don't play it as regularly as other games, but I still love it. The other

  • using the original CD which I bought back then from a retail store. The problem is, my time at home is rather limited and I was really glad I found the 3 hours to install it in the first place. Most.... Is there a way to revert the install to before the patch (which I installed last) without installing all 3 again? I did all installations in one go, so there are no Windows backup points I can use... reinstalling would change anything. So I was hoping someone here could help with such problems. Could the CD have gotten invisible damage because of the long storage without ever using it? This damage
