    won't work because psp does not come on due to crashed upgrade ( bricked ) so this will only work on psp that actually powers up / thank you for trying / what i really need is a magic memory card that will install 5.00 straight away / the version i have is 3.80 & when i try to run it- it says it can't load nand file

    Can you be more specific: where you updating through the internet, UMD disk or you download the file from your computer and saved it to the memory stick duo.

How do i turn on my ps3 rock candy wireless controller

After installing batteries in the controller and inserting the usb stick into your PS3, hold down the home button (the round middle most button with a house on it) for a few seconds until the light on the controller illuminates. This is your indicator your controller is paired with your PS3 and should be assignable and usable at this point.
