Im not sure this is a solution.
However it seems one of the reasons you get a corrupt save file from this dlc is because you are doing things in the normal game,

Ive had confirmed that corrupt files have happened when

A 160 wanted posters have been collected (my corrupt)
B. Completion of 15 chapters on normal ( 2 or 3 friends )
c. Collection of all Play boy magz ( my brothers corrupt)

So i would say that you just stick to one side of the game.
I know the dlc only takes 3 or 4 hours to do but its still not nice at all.

This might not help you and you may still get a corrupt file.

So are you saying that its best to get the full 1,000 on the game and then start on the dlc without going back into the original story?

Thats what I did and I didn't get the 100 headshots when I should have, got everything else so far though (except 1000 miles havn't attempted).

Back up save and store al save files on a usb stick and back that up
Never lose saves then

Usb image tool works well for backup and recovering the usb ..

1000 miles is a pia elastic band method is by far the least tedious..

Great tip dude!!! after i had finished the original 1000 i then downloaded the dlc I never went back into the original story and so far i have received every achievement even the 1000 miles explorer achievement. All i need now is the 1000 kills,"CARNAPER",and beating the game:woop:
