I am having a problem transferring my gamesave from a mates console to mine. I have only ever played one game on my PS3 and thats COD:MW2 but I got playing RDR at my mates and took a liking to it. I got quite far and have bought the game for myself, I thought it would be easy to move the gamesave across but I am having issues.
I was using my own user account (not PSN) on his PS3 and it is the same name as my user account on my PS3. I have successfully copied the gamesave files onto USB and onto my PS3 but when loading RDR it has an error which says the gamesave was made by another user.
"the save file "*insert name here*" appears to have been created by a different user and cannot be loaded. if you continue the save will be overwritten at the next autosave point."
On neither console was I logged into PSN as we prefer not to update the FW and have third party controllers disabled, and as we do not wish to update the fw we cannot logon to PSN to sync my game saves.
Does anyone know of a fix? I have tried simply copying the gamesaves to USB and data transfer utility via ethernet where my console is formatted then all my mates HDD is copied over. I have tried deleting the game data and starting a new campaign, completing the first couple of missions then overwriting the game save.
