A number of issues can cause the error codes EFEAB30C or 4B538E50 to pop up in NBA 2K24. We will list each problem and explain the solutions so that you have a clear understanding.

Latest Downloadable Data

The most common cause of these error codes is the lack of the latest downloaded data. It can be the latest patch or an update for the game. You must wait for the data to download on your device, and the time it takes can differ depending on the file size and internet speed.

Once you finish downloading the data, a pop-up message will appear, instructing you to return to the game’s main menu to implement the update. Next, you should be able to play the game without further issues.

Playing a few games in “Play Now” mode can help trigger the download. When you finish a game in NBA 2K24, the game will tell you to go back to the main menu. When you do that, you’ll see a loading screen where the update gets added. Once it’s added, you’ll go back to the main menu automatically.

Account Verification

Verifying your account via NBA 2K's official site can also help solve the issue. Here are some simple steps:

  • Visit the NBA 2K website
  • Locate and select "Sign In" located in the upper-right corner of the screen
  • Provide both your MyPLAYER account username and password
  • A successful login automatically verifies your account during the login process

Number of NBA 2K Accounts on Console

On a single console, you can make up to five NBA 2K accounts. If you make more than the allowed number, a security rule stops all but the first five accounts from going online. This may cause the error codes EFEAB30C or 4B538E50 to show up. There’s no way around this, so you can only use the first five accounts for online play.

Third Party Software Blocking NBA 2K24

The error messages can also appear if you’re having connection issues. You can perform a PathPing and a TraceRoute to check for any problems. Here are the steps:

  • Use a computer connected to the router you use for playing NBA 2K24. Now, open the Windows menu and type “CMD” then press Enter. This will open the command prompt.

  • In the command prompt, type: pathping -n 104.255.107.131

  • After a few seconds, the command prompt will display some statistics. To copy the output, right-click anywhere in the window, choose “Select All,” right-click again, and select “Copy.” Then, open Notepad and press Ctrl+V to paste the copied text.

  • Return to the command prompt, type “tracert 104.255.107.131,” and press Enter. Wait until the window says “Trace Complete.” Copy this information as well.

  • Send both of these documents to the NBA 2K support team here.
    This will give the support team more information about your problem and help them resolve any connectivity issues you may be experiencing.

Game Data Out of Sync

If your game data is out of sync, it can create error codes EFEAB30C or 4B538E50 in NBA 2K24. This can be a common problem if you delete your reserved data. Here's how you can fix it.

  • Just pick "Play Now" and wait on that menu until you see an update message. It might take a while, even hours.
  • When you get the message, go back to the main menu. You'll see a loading screen, and it will apply the update. Then, you'll go back to the main menu automatically.

Deleted Reserved Space

You can get a number of different error codes if you were clever enough to delete your reserved space. We have a detailed guide on "Userdata" Corruption error, which can help you restore the deleted reserved space.
