I have been trying to backup this game on my internal HDD and it gets to the "ms2.psarc" file at 97%. It transfers 31% of that file and it skips to next file. This is the file that is >4GB, which prevents it from backing up on the external.
This is strange because multiple sources state this game is working fine from the internal. For those who have backed up this game successfully, what's your secret? Which backup manager did you use?
I have 64GB left on my internal, so I have plenty of room. I have also backed up other games to my internal with no problems.
Thanks in advance!
A new turn of events: I inserted the Motorstorm: Pacific Rift disc into my PS3 without it being in dev mode. I started it and it loaded up. I went to start the first game on it and it froze. Stayed that way for about 30 minutes.
