Downloaded games does not install after PS3 system transfer

I have now completed the PS3 system transfer. I deleted some games and demos, because I was worried it would take a whole day if I transferred all 80 GB. So I only transferred around 40 GB, and was amazed it only took one and a half hour.

 

Everything seems to have been transferred or copied. The purchased downloaded games all works after I activated the new console in 'System Activation', the friends are there, all the messages, themes, and most of the console settings.

 

But, one big problem. Of the 40 GB I deleted before transferring, was two free games I chose after last year's PSN outage, Infamous and Little Big Planet. I redownloaded them, and tried to install them, only to see the message:

 

"You can use this content on a PSP system.
Do you want to copy it to a PSP system?"

 

This is unsettling. What do I do now?

Agreed in many cases there is a problem with the way the file downloaded for what ever reason and redownloading often corrects this.

 

I would also advise redownloading from your download list to ensure you are downloading the exact same product.

I've got exactly the same problem after a data transfer but Wipeout HD and Infamous aren't showing up in my download list at all (Whereas LBP is), I've also lost three DLC's from Fallout 3 as well (Which I actually paid for !).

 

Any help would be appreciated

an Update from me, i had this issue, but if was after id swapped my hdisk to a 1TB. what i quickly found out was that if you do any large background downloads they sometimes get corrupt.

 

if you dload in realtime dont back ground it, it worked 100% for me, this was even with the 14gb files such as little big planet racing etc

 

hope it helps somebody

I love how the Playstation service hasn't given any insight whatsoever on this topic. The same thing's been happening to me and I wonder: has anyone tried connecting their PSP to the system? Maybe you could play inFAMOUS on your PSP, lol. Anyway, it sounds to me that Playstation is going to slowly remove games from the PS Plus deal, starting with the Welcome Back games.

Call customer support and have them recredit it to your account and use transaction history as proof of ownership.
If they say no then persist and call up again or ask for supervisors etc. Use the regular price number if you can find it
