Modern Warfare 2 crashes on startup

Hello everyone.

 

This is my first post so I hope I did everything correctly.

 

Here's the situation: whenever I put the discs for Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare of Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 into my PS3 Slim, the inital animated logos begin to play as normal on startup, but then they stop, the screen turns black and I am returned to the main Playstation menu. Other games that I play like Motorstorm, Assassin's Creed and Modern Warfare 3 all work perfectly.

 

I am currently at uni and am using a wired connection through a 5-port ethernet switch. I had the same setup before christmas (same cable and socket) but minus the switch. I took my PS3 home over the holidays and used it on a wireless connection there. The games worked fine before and over christmas, but it's just since I've been back at uni that this problem has been occuring. I have tried taking out the switch and plugging straight into the wall like before, but the same problem keeps happening.

 

The games load as they should when the PS3 has no internet connection, but when I plug it back in to play online, the game returns to the main menu screen once again or crashes altogether. I took the games home last weekend to play on my dad's PS3 there and they worked fine. When I returned, MW2 worked for a day or two and then it went back to stopping on startup.

 

I have no idea what the cause of this problem could be, and it isn't one I have seen elsewhere when searching the internet for solutions, so I eagerly await some responses that could help me fix it.

 

Thank you for your help.

Ive had the same problems as evryone else, as recently as 5 mins ago.  MW2 appears to have been working online only on random occassions altho  It doesnt crash with internet connection diabled.  Last time i tried my pc (with utorrent) was shut down and MW2 still wouldnt load. will check if my house mates PC is on as I know for a fact he has utorrent and will report back my  findings.  Also i am in the UK but not at uni

I think this topic should be stickied disabling torrent seems to be the main fix for COD problems. 

 

Never had problems myself but never have and ever will use torrent apps.

I know this is a little bit late, but if your running utorrent or any torrent stuff. stop your downloads and exit it. then it started to work fine for me.

i called the playstation and they gave me simple steps and thank god it worked , first unplug the PS3 and the router for at least 3 minutes then put the power plug of router till the internet sign appears (means there is internet) , then connect the power plug of PS3 and turn it on , go to the game then multiplayer and enjoy (:

OMG! I've had this problem for about 3 months now and I had no Idea why! I tried everything I could think of. I don't even own MW2 I just borrow it from a friend. I thought It was broken when it quit working, but it would work in my friends PS3. Thank you so much for finding out how to fix this. I need to play this game so I can upload to Youtube, and now I can. Thanks again!

I just bought a PS3 3 days back. Just to play MW2. But this problem had been recurring randomly. Some times it works. But, Today I was trying every solution that was posted here. Nothing worked. And, by the way, turning off utorrent doesnt affect. I have a dedicated connection to my ps3. If anyone, had the same kind of trouble and found solution please let know.
