After a week of e-mails back and forth, various checking, and calling as asked, I was told nothing could be done and to post here for more help...which is what I'm doing.
More or less, even though I 100%'d everything myself, I am unable to transfer my LBP1 data to LBP2 due to the fact that it says it won't import copied data. I originally played the game on my dad's PS3.
I already tried transferring it back to transfer it to LBP2--but I get the same error. I have tried backing up and replacing the current LBP1 data, I've tried deleting and reinstalling the games, I've tried deleting the LBP1 saved data and then importing the backed up one. Pretty much everything I've done has yet to work.
Does anyone have any suggestions on what to do that doesn't involve starting over in LBP1?
And as far as I can tell, the saved game is associated with my PSN and my PS3 (thus why I still received the error when putting it on my dad's) So I'm not sure what the problem is.
I also was able to import my data during the LBP2 Beta just fine. :/
I am confused. So you played the game on your dad's PS3, transferred data to yours, and then now you are using your dad's?
If this is the case, it reminds me of San Andreas on PS2... my brother first played it at a friend's, and then borrowed it. He saved the progress on memory card. Later he bought a copy of it for himself - and me hehe. Our most played game by the way, hehe. Anyway we soon found out that the data saved from the other disk could not be used with our copy, so we had to start all over.
So perhaps LBP1 data was copyable, but to import it back to the original with LBP2 may be the problem. Maybe LBP2 doesn't allow copied data from the first one becasue some people may buy LBP2 and not have played LBP1.. so they take a friend's profile and copy. Maybe this is to prevent that and force people to buy the first one? Maybe it assumes you are 'cheating' and this is designed to prevent it. Just a theory.
If this is the case, maybe you do have to replay it on the same machine you plan to play LBP2 on. Ugh!!!
No, I'm using my own PS3 now. First part is correct though--I played on my dad's first.
That's the reason there's the whole copied data thing to begin with...which really is silly because who would want LBP2 without playing one? Similarly, who cares if some people have fake trophies without earning them? It's screwed up to punish those who did and for whatever reason, had to transfer their data, and not let them be able to have what they should.
I already know -why- it isn't, I'm asking for a way for it to let me because there's no -reason- it should. And I already tried playing it on my dad's PS3 after this and I received the same error.
If you know why it is, then there's no way around it! Why answer so rudely with the dashes like I-am-dumb? Like wow I just wanted to help...
And people may get the second one as a gift or something... I have games where I haven't even played the first ones.
Except it doesn't make -sense- why it is. And there's other people with the same issue just because they -changed their e-mail- among other silly reasons. And I wasn't answering rudely or calling you dumb, so please don't make assumptions.
Well, I don't know many people who just play a sequel of a game and have no interest to actually get the first and vice versa if they really enjoyed it. :/
Not to mention I said in my first post I wanted advice -besides replaying the game-. ._.
That works since it gets rid of the "copied" message--I already know that though which is why I'm looking for a fix that won't need me having re-100% everything, remake a bunch of things, among other issues. :/
I don't care if I still can't earn trophies (as frustrating as it is), I just want to be able to import my data.
