PS3 Data Transfer Utility - Stuck?

24 replies 6948 views Edited Feb 5, 2010

So after getting YLOD and fixing it mytself, I went and bought myself a Slim and thought it'll be a good idea to use this feature. However, it's been 6 hours now and after finally reaching 95%, 11 mins left, its stuck. It's been 2 hours now, and its still stuck. The dynamic background running in the back is still moving, and the HDD is still blinking, so I'm sure nothing's frozen in terms of the PS3 itself.

 

So what's going on? Anyone that's used this feature have this issue? Since its at 95%, I'm guessing I won't be able to access anything till te full 100% is done transferred knowing how downloads go about.

 

Advice is much appreciated!

I'm right with you.  I'm stuck at 98% myself with no signs of anything wrong.  Heck, I can even turn on and off my controller just fine with the PS button..

 

I started a thread just recently as well..

I just did a transfer tuesday night and it would occasionally hang and started out saying it would take an hour and ended up being 4 hours. When we did my brother in laws he finally gave up and went to bed, woke up the next morning and sometime through the night it had finished the transfer.

I'm hoping that's my case.  It's been taunting me with "8 minutes remaining" for closer to 8 hours, now..

Surprisingly, it finished overnight.  Hopefully the OP's did the same!

I'm kind of in the same boat. For the past hour, my screen has stayed at 67% completed, and 1 hour and 12 minutes remaining.

Should I just leave it on for a few hours and see if it moves? And, if so, what should I do if it doesnt? D:

Horrible first post I know, but yeah. I'm a little worried =/

Leave it on overnight if you have to.  Let it finish, or let it error.  If you stop it, you may run the risk of losing data or copy-right info.

Alright thanks. Hopefully this won't happen, but any tips for what to do if I wake up tomorrow and it hasn't moved? =/

Probably just start over huh, and hope nothing bad happens D:

Bumping this thread -- did everyone in here find things eventually succeeded?   I'm at 80% complete with 1 hr 10 minutes to go for the past 3 hours.

Thanks.
