    Default Error 8001002B

    About to throw this Gran Turismo 5 Academy Edition disc. Keeps getting to 8 percent install then spits out an error 8001002B.

    Google says this is a dirty or scratched disk. Have cleaned dusc with isopropyl alcohol and while it does have one or two fine scratches, these are no worse than any other second hand games I have bought.

    Anybody gave a similar experience and possibly some tips?

    I can remember having trouble downloading the patch for God of War: Ascension. To solve this, I turned on Automatic Updates on the PS3 and when the patch was downloaded in this way, it actually downloaded properly without any issues.

    Handy tip. Not sure it helps for disk install though.

    I didn't realise it you were having a problem with a disc install. I have no idea how to get around that, sorry dude.

    Maybe try something with a big install, like MGS 4 to rule out system, HDD and lens.

    It's just to check if other games give the same error. Other option is to try the disc in another PS3.
