Sorry to add. But I also have a question on the whole erase data reload or reconfirm thing rockstar posted on there help forum. Is that honestly the only answer. I did all 12 steps they posted on turning off update and online turn off and every thing does nothing as far as improve load of game. Same problem after a good hour of deleting and redownloading for nothing to be gained. I'm an avid gta5 fan and its a stress relief. Honestly though there has to be others having problems i do.
Hi. I'm having a problem with my unit its a four USB fat ps3 as pictured above. I try to play gta5 and either my hdd light becomes solid color fan picks up speed and unit freezes on load. Or it will freeze yellow hdd light but images on screen during loading keeps going but never loads. I changed hdd with two separate hdd and same problem. I can use Youtube but no games. I thought maybe take hdd out check the plug in on unit where hdd goes. Looks fine. I took top off unit cleaned out still same. So now I'm wondering since its a 2011 unit or older should I clean laser? I will have to tear down again and follow your steps above to get to it. Also I have two slims that I used there hdd to check my fat ps3 they have no power when plugged INS checking disk in separate unit is not available for me. I may just have to face facts and trash it. Buy a new ps4. But the cost…..thanks for advice if you have any. Jason B.
