so i was just playing Bioshock 2 and i savedand than it froze while saving, i pressed the buttons and the guide button and nothing. and also unplugged the controller and opened the tray and STILL nothing. so i turn off my 360 and turn it back on and when i try to load up that save it says it is corrupted.

i want to know how do i fix it? cause i dont want to restart the level over from the autosave.

PLEASE HELP!.

You can't fix it. You're going to have to start again from the beginning.

The only thing you can do is have multiple saves. You should have an auto save along with your regular save, correct? Use that once for now if you still have it, it should pick up at the beginning of the level. If you saved over it there isn't anything you can do.

Have multiple saves, and if it freezes in mid save there isn't anything you can do about it.

ok so have 2 save files and 1 auto save, and should i just delete that corrupted file or save over it? or will that make things worse?

Save often. That is the best way to do it. I had 2 XBLA games become corrupted, they were both really good ones to :(

Delete the corrupted file, it won't do anything bad to your game, but it's a waste of space. Use the auto save, it should pick up in the beginning of the level. And no, I don't think it will happen again, just bad luck.

Yes, Fallout 3, sure, whatever. This isn't Fallout 3, you shouldn't have the same problem.

Unless you don't take care of your disc, or your Xbox.

well it froze again, not durring the save but while collicting adam of the corpse in the brothel place. i think it may have frozen because there were too many enemys, i had the rumbler and thug after me.

The game does suffer from freezing. Try to bare with it, it is a very good game.

Same thing happened to me.. at the very end of a level, and had to do it all over again, wasn't pleased.. Just alternate from 2 saves each time you save, so if you do loose one you have a back up not far behind.. Save often!
