My ps3 cant update via usb

I tried many methods of updating my ps3 with upate 2.53 which is in my flash disks. I tried putting the file in folders called "UPDATE" and "PS3" but my ps3 cannot find the update. I used a 2gb Kingston Data Traveller and a 4gb Scandisk Cruzer and they both did not work. Please help. Thank you.

Hello

The Sony Playstation 3 suffers from software bugs like any other device. These bugs can cause the PS3 to freeze during game play, which takes away from the overall experience of using the PS3 hardware. In order to combat these bugs, Sony software team frequently sends out PS3 software updates that will defuse any major bugs as they arise.

Go to the official Sony Playstation 3 update website and download the latest PS3 software update. Each update that Sony releases fixes bugs and adds new features.

Connect a USB flash drive or memory card to your computer and create a folder inside of the USB drive or memory card named "PS3." Create a folder inside of that named "Update."


Save the downloaded PS3 update file inside of the "Update" folder on the USB flash drive or the memory card.


Pull the USB flash drive or the memory card out of the computer and connect it to your PS3. Select the "System Update" option from the PS3 main menu.


Select "Update via Storage Media" from the next screen and press the "X" button to install the latest PS3 update on your machine. This will fix any software bugs that are preventing your PS3 from working properly.

Every time its gets to 62% is says an error with (8002F997) ive tired the method by swiching the media sever to disable but that didnt work. what eles do i do


Error code "8002F997" means your PS3 is having issues updating your system software directly via internet. As a workaround you'll use external storage media, such as a USB thumb drive, to transfer the software to your PS3

1. Requirements

- A USB cable (not necessary if using a USB thumb drive)
- A PC with Internet access
- Storage media or a USB Mass Storage device such as a USB flash drive

2. Downloading and saving the software

- Plug in your USB drive to your computer, and create a folder on the storage media in which to save the update data. Create a folder named "PS3" on the storage media/USB device. Within the PS3 folder, create a folder named "UPDATE".

- Download the update data from

http://dus01.ps3.update.playstation.net/update/ps3/image/us/2011_0310_91ee193a2fa921a6fce780fc40236e3b/PS3UPDAT.PUP

and save it in the "UPDATE" folder.

Note:

Be sure to save the update data as noted below. If the data is not saved in the correct way, the PS3 will not recognize the update data. The folder name must be in all uppercase letters.

-> Location: Save in the "PS3" folder > "UPDATE" folder
-> File name: Save as file name "PS3UPDAT.PUP".

3. Updating the PS3 software

Note:

Do not turn off the PS3, or remove the USB drive, during the software update!

- Insert the USB drive/storage media into the PS3
- On your PS3, from Home Menu (second icon from the left) -> System Update ->Select [Update via Storage Media].

The system automatically searches for and finds the update data saved on the storage media or USB device.

My ps3 has error 80710723 and says it needs to update. when i try to update it i get the error and cannot connect to the network.


Download the update from your PC save it on a usb flash drive. On the flash drive create a folder and name it PS3 and inside of that folder make a folder and name it UPDATE. Save the download into the file that you named UPDATE make sure you name the downloaded file PS3UPDAT.PUP.
Put the usb into a usb port on your PS3 and goto system update and do the update via storage. Make sure the files and the downloaded contene named files are all in upper caps.

I Keep Receiving Error 80029C77 When I Try The Latest Update For MyPS3


I received this today and first I downloaded the update via the web on your computer to a USB flash drive. Once downloaded create the folders PS3 and the folder UPDATE within PS3. PS3\UPDATE. Move downloaded file into the UPDATE folder. (folders must be in CAPS). Then when the unit is off press and hold the power button until it beeps 3 times. A menu should come up on the screen. Select the option that states update system software (I believe its 6). The unit will update via the flash drive. After that the unit will restart and should be updated and working.

My PS3 wont recognise 3.15 update from usb, formated usb to fat32 nothing works. Trying to swap the drive did the recomended instruction change and the system wont restart the new drive,went through all...


tilz1

If your PS3 will not see the update most likely you did not save the file to the right place.

The link below is the the main instructions to properly do the install of the firmware update. However when you save the you will wanted to save the update in a folder named "PS3” on the root directory of the USB drive. Then in that folder make a folder called “UPDATE”. After you have done this then you will want to save the update in the “UPDATE” folder. Doing this should allow your PS3 to see the update.

Let me know if you have any more problems or questions

When i put a bluray dvd on my ps3 it said i need a encryption key


Create a folder on a CD or USB Thumb drive and name it PS3. within the PS3 folder, create a folder named UPDATE . Download the update and save it in the UPDATE folder. You can get the latest update via the following site: http://dus01.ps3.update.playstation.net/update/ps3/image/us/20090624_d69362743142953be7cb44a5fd5cc888/PS3UPDAT.PUP
Be sure to save the update in the UPDATE folder (this IS case sensitive by the way) or the PS3 will not recognize the update data.
Insert your disc or usb thumb drive and go to settings, then system update at the top, then press x. Select 'update via storage media' and start the update. once completed, your system will reboot and you will be good to go.
