    Hi guys. I just got my jailbreak clone from Hong Kong and it seems to work as advertised. I have sucessfully backed up several games to an external drive and they seem to play fine.

    So last night I went to family video to rent a few games I have wanted to play and when I was installing these games I noticed that during the installation the message "Failure!!!" appeared by the progress bar. The game, Demon Souls, btw, continued to install as normal, but the failure message remained there until the installation completes. When the game installs, Demon Souls is listed in my backup manager and can be started and seems to play like normal. Since this happened I have been leaving my Ps3 on the TV while installing other games and I've noticed that almost all games I install display the Failure message at some point during install, but still seem to install completely

    A few questions I was hoping someone could answer for me.

    1. Has anyone else had the same thing happen while backing up games?

    2. If so, does the failure message indicate that the games failed to install properly and need to be reinstalled even if they start properly?

    3. Does anyone know what is the likely cause of this problem? Is is caused by a crappy laser, dirty/damaged media, the version of backup manager I run, or something else?

    Any help is greatly appreciated. Thanks.
