^^^^I've had that happen in the Holland Tunnel (can't remember the GTA name for it) all the time usually when I'm westbound coming from Alderney.
So I just started a new GTA4 game last night so I could play through The Possible Trinity. After Niko gets in Romans cab I decide to see how many people I can run over on the way to the apartment. I get out of the cab a few times to pick up dropped cash. Once we arrive at the apartment (Roman is not happy with me at all) the camera pulls back like it does for a cutscene and...nothing happens.
30 minutes later I go back to my TV and its still stuck staring at Niko and Roman sitting in the cab. I am forced to turn the PS3 off.
Today I put the disk in and the disk isn't registering at all, I'm just getting a spinning icon. Uncharted 2 loaded right up and plays fine so...
I may have trashed my GTA file...anyone else ever done this or heard of this?
Update: The screen has gone black and the the disk sounds like its "clunking" around in the drive. The drive also makes the clunking sound with no disk inserted. No progress past that though.
Update 2: This is looking more and more like a corrupted hard drive, the PS3 won't even load the basic startup screen.
Update 3: Cannot start. The correct hard disk was not found. I've never swapped hard drives and I've been trying to access the "file restoration" option (never had to before) but no dice.
