Trophy Save File Error Caused By Changing Password/Login

Warning: Changing your PSN email or password via the PS3's XMB account management tool will corrupt your save files! Sadly, PlayStation 3 Firmware Update 2.53 does NOT resolve this issue.

This is extremely irritating as for over a month now, i havn't been able to play several games. Including, GTA4, Pain, Pixeljunk eden, Wipeout HD, Far Cry 2, and Resistance 2. Even though there are multiple forums out there full of people with this problem sony has seemed to fully ignore it. I'm gonna have to call them soon threating to supply every person with this issue a 360, my treat. Then maybe they'll pay more attention :P. Anyone else here encounter this issue?

ezcex3216d ago

can't you change it back to the way it was before? maybe it will work then. I remember when I made a new account and with a new name and copied the save files over from old to new, it wouldn't let me play some of them.

Oh well, lol. The problem is real and PS3 gamers need to know what's going on. It seems like this is nothing a quick FW update couldn't fix, but Sony must first agree to take it seriously. It's unfortunate that it has seemed to really come into the light after the latest FW.

thebudgetgamer3216d ago

and i changed the password a bunch of times and nothing happened

:)

It got approved because the other time i tryed to post it, it was just a forum post i was linking too.

Beleive me the first thing i tried was to change to back but it didnt do anything. Maybe it has something to do with certain ps3s. IF you look up some forums via searching "Ps3 error 80022d11" on google you will find that lots of people have this problem.

vitz33216d ago

This article is BS. I've changed my password many times with in the past few months for game-sharing and such. I've changed it 6 times in the past few weeks to share Home with friends too.

Lame article is lame.

Wow, that is a serious error. How the heck do you get corrupt files?

If I get a Yellow Light of Death, at least I can get it fixed. I get a corrupt savegame and I'm f**ked! Got to go backup my savegames...

This is happening to some people. Happened to me. It will say you've "copied this file from another person".

If you want a fix, save all your data on a usb stick. activate your account, delete User, make a new User, link it to your PSN, and viola. Works for me for LBP. Do it on your own risk. Never tried it for other games since LBP was the only one stuck.

I've done this multiple times after trophies have launched. I think you just have to be unlucky.

Sharingan_no_Kakashi3216d ago

I JUST CHANGED IT THIS MORNING!!!!!!!! I HOPE MY DATA ISNT GONE I HAVE TO GO CHECK IT NOW.

PS3Freak3216d ago

I don't understand why people don't seem to beleive this is true. I'm telling you RIGHT NOW, go and search "PS3 error 80022d11" on google and you will find MULTIPLE forums full of people with this issue. Do your research before you discredit me.

They aren't saying that you're completely BSing this, but you're not considering all the facts here, and that this may be more of an isolated case than this article is making it out to be. They're also talking about their own experiences and that it hasn't affected them just yet.

If this IS factual (no reason to believe it isn't and yeah, people might want to make sure they're not underplaying this before saying their piece), then I hope Sony fixes it soon, but I think your overreacting over what the comments are saying here.

Marceles3215d ago (Edited 3215d ago )

It might be true, but the post makes it seem like no PS3 owner at all can change their PS3's password unless they want corrupted files. That's why everyone in this thread is running around like a chicken with their head cut off...you should at least make it clear that it doesn't happen to everyone.

I changed my email address from a Yahoo address to my ISP address without a problem. Freak, what model do you have? I have a launch 60GB console, and was wondering if it was a model(s) specific issue. I appreciate the heads up, even though I've had no problems.

A little off topic, I did the same thing on my 360, and all is ok, but I still have to use my Yahoo address (which no longer exists btw) to access xboxlive.com. I checked on xboxlive.com and the email address they have listed is my ISP address, but I still have to use the old one to sign in. Anybody else experience this, and is there something I'm missing?
