Question about Sony Playstation 3 (PS3) Console

1 Answer

Will not download updates for games, etc

Whenever I have to download an update for a game or home, the system begins to download and it stops for no good reason. After a good 5 min it completely stops and says that an error occurred during the process. It only works on occasion but it is very inconvenient and annoying most of the time. Does anyone know what might be wrong?

I cant get my dsi to play games with r4 card,,even had r4 card downloaded with new games


The DSi has several system updates specifically designed to block flashcarts such as the R4. Check the R4 website to see if they have information on what to do if your DSi has blocked the cart. You might be able to do an update to the R4 to fix it. Another option is to get a different cart that has a work-around built in, such as the "SuperCard DSTwo" which has a small chip inside it that other carts don't have and has a file you can download directly onto the memory card that goes into the cart to update it whenever that happens.

Whenever i try to load a saved game from any game my xbox 360 freezes and when i try to load a saved game from fallout new vegas it told me something weird. it told me that i have downloadable content...


Sounds like your hard drive or memory chip that has a corrupt file that has affected it. Normally problems like this are only isolated to a specific game's save game files. If you have never had your console connected to xbox live then none of their updates or game patches would be present on your system; however other newer games you may have played, you might have noticed a you will need to update your system before you can play this game message on your screen. There are only 3 steps I can suggest the first is to reformat your system this will erase/revert everything to its default settings as if you're playing the console again for the first time. The 2nd would be to clear the concole cache and erase all updates. You do this method by going into system/memory/press y button/then press xx, left bumper, right bumper, xx if you do this correctly it will ask if you want to perform maintenance select yes. The 3rd option I have will erase any faulty updates which may have not completed etc. that may be causing an error, you do this by holding the synchronize button (just to left of power) then turn the power on, continue to hold the sync button until it loads completely then release. You will not receive any message or indication but any failed updates will now be removed from your system. Hope this helps, I would try these steps from 3 to 1 if I were you to, so hopefully you don't have to wipe all your saved games

I am trying to use a USB stick in safe mode to update the system software on my ps3 to 3.50. im doing it this way because it will not update via internet without stopping and encountering error 80710723. i...


The fact you're using a Macintosh system should have absolutely no bearing on your memory stick displaying the data for your PS3 to see. What may be the cause, though not very likely, is the format of the memory stick itself. You must first make sure you didn't accidentally change the format from FAT32 while saving the update to the storage. Another possibility is that memory stick may not have been formatted as FAT32 to begin with, which isn't very likely.

Check this first before continuing on. Once this part is settled, or if there are no changes necessary, proceed to the next section.

The next thing you must do is properly and immediately back up your game and save data before applying the update just in case something goes wrong. Once you've completed this part DO NOT enter safe mode again, instead, allow your PS3 to start normally and load all settings and data before proceeding to the next step.

From this point go to Settings > System Update > Update via Storage Media. Press X on the next screen when the system "sees" the data, accept the User Agreement, then start the system update.

I can't connect to xbox live 'cause of an udate loop.


You could maybe chalk it up to bad connection or maybe the box is banned. You could try downloading the update from Microsoft's website and update that way.

Here's the link

My son saved money and bought a Xbox 360 Arcade. He did not realize that he could not play his xbox games on his new system. Is there an upgrade to allow old xbox games to be played on on the xbox 360


Some game are compatible with the new xbox 360. They are called backwards compatible and you do need to flash upgrade the OS on the new xbox 360 system.

You need to go to the xbox website and go to support and download the flash update then burn it to disk and put it on the xbox to update the software. Again not all old games are compatible with the new xbox system. If your buying used games like I do make sure it says bc next to the title before buying them.
Here is the link to the upgrade
