PS3 problem, Its not working

Ok so i was on GTA IV yesterday and it was fine, today i decided to go

and play on it again so i put in the disc and started up the game. I
was waiting while it was going threw that little load screen with Niko
next ot the crates and them policeman going up the stairs ect.

All was fine and then i got a pop up saying "error ocurred (50971)" so i
pressed X and then i get up another pop up saying something like "game
can not be loaded, the saved game is damaged".
Then my game started
at the begging... So i pressed start and then i was trying to load up
one of my saved games, it loaded succesfully but it wasn't the save i
wanted and all my other saved game were gone. So i decided to quit the
game and see if my other saves were corrupted and there was 1 corrupted
bit of data but the rest of my saved games were fine with was odd.

I then turned off my PS3 and left it for a while to and later i came back
after about an hour to see if it still had the same problems, this time
tough when i started up my PS3 it said something along the lines of
"Data utilaty is corrupted and must be restored" so at that moment i
was puzzled and i pressed X said something like "Restoring Saved Data
Utilaty, Do Not Turn Of System". It went to 100% and my PS3 restarted
and then again the message vame up saying "Data utilaty is corrupted
and must be restored", i repeated the process about 5 times and got no
where.

So again i left my PS3 to left and came back about
another hour later and everytime i started up my PS3 i kept on getting
the message "Data utilaty is corrupted and must be restored" and then
once i clicked OK i again got the message "Restoring Saved Data
Utilaty, Do Not Turn Of System" and it went up to 100% but then it
loaded up my PS3 and i still keep getting "Data utilaty is corrupted
and must be restored" and i get no where and its not restoring anything
im just going in circles!sad.gif

So my Question: Has anyone had this same problem and does anyone know
either on how to fix this problem or any advice to help me with this
problem?


Thanks, any help will be grateful.icon14.gif

 

P.S. I posted this thread on another forum section and it shouldn't be there so if anyone see's the same topic then yeah, sorry

hey man I had-- have the same problem.Mine is a 60gb ps3 which made things difficult but I had to send mine away to sony and it still hasnt come back but it wasnt as easy as that. After a load of fone calls to sony  I was told to go back to the retailer and get them 2 fix it... but they told me to get sony to fix it that went on for a wile (which was not nice cuz da shop i got it in is 20 miles from me!!) but in the end sony arrranged for it to be collected. I was lucky that the guarentee for it. The shop kept telling me that sony would send them 'replacement' 60gbs for problems like mine but evry time they got 1, acccording to the shop, it said 60 gb on the box but it was actually a 40gb console!!! Eventually i got irritated and sony finally took it away but it wasnt easy. Im still waiting 4 it to come back. Weirdly enough he last game I played was also gta4... I wonder if theres a link of some sort there???

 The messages and everything u described are exactly what i had trouble with and the main point in my story is that u will probably have to send/ get it collected by sony.Thats all I can tell u now... Wot gb size did u buy?? it could be less complicated if u had something like a 40gb.... Good luck m8.
