GTA 5 wont install on PS3

First off all some info of what i have tried so far and a small story.

 

The PS3 is the old fat one, i belive its the 40GB version but someone has installed a 150GB HDD.

 

So First i got a disc from grainger games, this wouldnt install, it loaded and did all the cut scene with the police stars ect.. and then ran onto the install screen. the MB counter moved but slowly, originally i thought it would take a hour or two to install as that is what i had heard, so i thought it wasnt strange that it was moving slowly. but it turns out everyone i know it has taken theirs no more than 30 minutes to install.

 

 

So, first off it started installing slow, got to around 3600mb and just froze. the picture stopped panning and changing and the MB completed didnt increse and the small loading circle that rotates stopped, so the whole process just froze.

 

I cleaned the disc properly and made sure it had no marks and it installed to another number, probably 5000mb or something but again froze up.

 

i swapped the disc for a new one from grainger games and hoped that would sort the issue but with no avail it still did the same thing, a friend reccomended to leave it running overnight to see if it would unfreeze itself, which didnt happen.

 

 

Then it started installing for what must be the 10th time and the number got to 600mb from completed and just stopped increasing, unlike before the picture changed, and the loading sign still spins around but the number was stuck on the same number for about 2 hours so something wasnt right.

 

 

I formatted the HDD. still wont install and still installs really really slow

 

I updated the PS3 to the latest version via the Safe mode. It still installs really slow.

 

I finally reset the PS3 back to factory settings. It still installs really slow but up to yet hasnt frozen. at the minute im on 5250/8486 and counting.

 

Do i need to re-update the PS3 after resetting it to factory settings at all? or should it have kept the update?

 

 

Other than the PS3 being knackered i cant think of anything else that could possibly be wrong with it. i think its a YLOD surviver so may be on its way out, fans are constantly on when installing and could do with an external setup or cleaning out which will be the next thing on my list to fix to keep temps down.

 

 

Any help is appriciated guys and this is my first time on here so be nice :)

 

Video of the install speed, its never changed speed or got any faster at all, every time i try to install it this is the speed the data moves at. this is REAL time speed.

Hi guys, 

 

If your having trouble installing GTA V first thing to do is make sure that you have enough free space on your HDD. Its quite a big install so check in the System Settings that you have space. 

 

Next ensure that the disc is not dirty or scratched. 

 

You can also try Safe Mode options 3 and 4 which will correct any issues with your HDD file system. 

 

If your still having issues there may be a fault with the system, you can try tweeting @AskPS_UK for direct assistance (Operating hours are Wednesday to Sunday, 2:30pm to 11:00pm GMT) or contact Customer Support.

Mine installed ok, but everytime i try to play the game it will let me play all the way up till it's time to get in get a way truck from bank robbery it does not load next scene. It just stays on black screen with little loading thingy in bottom right spinning. I left it like that until i got done eatting supper and nothing.... The game disc is brand new so i have no clue what is wrong with this game. To me it seems to be a waste of money for a over priced piece of crap game.
