    Vehicle : 9-3 Wagon

    Trim : Turbo Edition

    Engine : TID (1.9 16v)

    Year : 2010

    Mileage : 137000

    Default No, no, no, GT5 keeps freezing!!!

    I'm about 4000 away from Lv27 and in every race its freezing. Tried it on arcade, GT mode, connected online and totally offline and it keeps freezing. It seams to happen 2 minutes 31 seconds into a race. If I finish a race in under that time then all is fine. I've un-installed the game and reinstalled it and its still doing it. Tried it on COD and it works fine just GT5.

    Any help....................please

    PS, just to add, it only started to happen when I connected a GT wheel for the first time yesterday.

    A little bit of headway, the game was even freezing on pause at the real time of 2.31 minutes, so I had to find out if its a hardware fault or software. I deleted the game again but saved all my progress and cars on USB card just in case, well same again, so I deleted loads of other games that I don't play like MAG, GTA and so on but still keeping all the save points in hope its a memory thing and its freezing when the memory cant store any more replay data. Well that got me 8 minutes into the game but that's no good to me as my next race is a 90 laps race. Something I picked up from surfing the forums was problems when you make your own soundtrack, so I think I might have sorted it. I've deleted a song and just got 20 mins out of it before I turned it off.

    Just to note, i'm running Version 1.0 as when I reinstalled I disconnected from the Internet so no patches running at the moment. I'll do this endurance race and see how it goes. If I get through it I've save it onto USB card again and install v1.05 again and take it from there.

    PS, the GT wheel is pants IMO, the force feedback is far far to strong, even doing an oval in a F1 car is really hard

    Fingers crossed mate. A bit more digging shows the fault with using your own soundtrack seems to be a bit of a common problem.

    Ahh, you see, you need to use the new "official" GT5 wheel and pedal set from Thrustmaster, The new T500 RS Is officially licenced by Sony & Polyphonic, Due for release on 5th Jan (according to official Press release, although amazon have it listed as 14th Jan).

    It's realistically priced to sell aswell at only £450 it's the ideal accessory for a £35 game

    Seems a bit much to expect people to pay more for an accessory that can only be used with one particular gaming genre, than the actual console needed to use it on..


    London, December 23, 2010 — Thrustmaster® is pleased to unveil today the T500 RS wheel and pedal set specially designed for Gran Turismo 5: a racing assembly that lets gamers live the most realistic, powerful driving experience, with no compromises.

    With this wheel and pedal set, users will go farther than ever before in the thrill of the ultimate GT5 experience. Get ready for an extraordinary ride…

    · The T500 RS will be available at HMV & Amazon from 5th January at a suggested retail price of £449.99 (VAT included).
