    Go to the Recovery Menu and choose Rebuild Database. There's a tutorial here - http://www.ps3trophies.com/forums/tr...ter-speed.html

    well... talking about borderlands is a problem of the game that could happen,so nothing wrong in your ps3 but I thought the GOTY had eliminated this unsightly problem!! to bad ,but you can make backups of savedata on a usb stick.

    The USB stick needs to be formatted as FAT32. You can do that in Windows, or download EaseUS Partition Master Home Edition. and do it using that software.

    Keep in mind that some game saves are copy-prohibited, meaning they won't copy to USB. If you have it, upload protected saves to PS+.

    I didn't know that as well, so thanks. I always put my saves on a USB-stick but I haven't formatted it to FAT32.
    So if the USB stick isnt't formatted and my PS3 gets the ylod, I won't be able to get back to my save files (not tech savvy either)?

    Anyway, I'll try to format it when getting home.

    If the PS3 is detecting the USB stick, it's already FAT32.

    USB drives are formatted as FAT32 by default so in most cases, there's nothing to be done. Just plug one into a USB port and if the PS3 sees it, you'll be fine.

    I always used my old school 80 gig iPod to do my backups. it works effortlessly without me having to reformat anything. Try that out if possible.
