The File is Corrupt (C0-11138-4)

Hi Guys i have been using Vitamin 2.0 to backup all my physical vita games to VPK files as i now have a 128 GB SD card and the SD2 adapter. Using Disgaea 3 as an example, i uploaded the save data to online storage and then deleted the Disgaea 3 bubble and all data from my vita. I then install the VPK file from Vitashell and it appears as a bubble in my home screen - all fine so far. However when i try to start the game i get the following message:

The File is Corrupt (C0-11138-4)

This is the UK version of Disgaea 3. I have also tried with UK version of Virtua Tennis and same problem.

Any ideas what the problem is? Do i need to go into Vitashell and delete any of the previous Disgaea 3 files perhaps?

Try using maidump too dump the cart? the "backup" methods that exist right now are horrible so there are a ton of incompatibilities but sometimes using the other tool gets it working.

Cheers for the reply and I will try using Maidump. I also downloaded my Disgaea 3 save from online storage and I have read elsewhere on the internet that this could cause the error as the cartridge save file is encrypted and won't work with the vpk game unless you decrypt the save file.

Any thoughts on that?

Anyone on the forum know the easiest way to decrypt a physical vita cartridge save file so that it works with the vpk game?

Cheers, FD

Thats not how that works and your saves will work fine.
Its updates that need to match the games encryption but no not saves.

I have used Maidump to install the UK Disgaea 3 plus the update but when i download my cartridge save from PS Online storage i am still getting the "The File is Corrupt (C0-11138-4)" message. How do i get rid of this error so that i can use my old save file with the Maidump rip? The rip is not from the cartridge, i downloaded from another site so is that causing the issue? Would it work if i use Maidump to rip the game file from the cartridge?
