Won't download update to play Call of duty 5

I tried playing call of duty 5 online. When I click to play online it tells me I need an update, so I click ok. My Ps3 turns off instead of updating. I went to check for system updates and it says there is no update necessary.

    same problem here. it says we need to update it, but when we do it does nothing and the screen turns black. unfortunatly our media settings were already disabled so we renabled it a disabled it. THAT didnt help. so we're stuck.

I saw a previous post online for when game updates don't download. Check your "Network Settings" on your PS3. Make sure that the "media server" option is DISABLED. That should work

Hi. You probably only have a silver XBOX Live membership. In order to play online multiplayer, you need to upgrade your account to a gold membership. For details on how to upgrade your account, click here.

Cant download the update


See if your test connection is "open" if it is not then it is your provider and will have to change. Typically schools such as uiniversities block xboxlive because it takes up bandwidth. 
Please post further detail about your problem, thanks.

I think because it was a BETA. They just wanted feed back, so they can tweak with the COD 5 game. That same thing happen when Halo 3 BETA came out after several week you couldn't play it no more. I have the same problem, ask your online buddies and see if they can get on. Hope that helps.
