With game systems such as the Wii, Xbox and PlayStation 3 having the ability to move beyond the simple function of game play, it becomes difficult to understand when an error occurs and for what reason. Is it a game disc? Or is it the internet connection in your house? The solution is never easy to discover, especially if the problem is unknown.

  1. 1

    Unplug any external hard drive that may be attached to the PS3.

  2. 2

    Restart the PS3, including unplugging it and plugging it into the power supply again.

  3. 3

    Format the file you are trying to save to be less than 2 GB in size. The main reason you are getting this error (game will not save) is due to the large file you tried to save.

  4. 4

    Connect the external hard drive to your PS3 again and save the file. The error should not occur again.
