there is a safety brake wire that needs to be hooked up. If it was installed professionally, have them explain it to you.There is not supposed to be any video players in view of the driver while in motion. Stop your car and put on the parking brake. If you installed it yourself, you probably didnt hook up the wire. Look inthe install manual for DVD safety wire.

A ps3 start up frezee


finally !! solved the problem :)

unfortunately the story has not the best ending ...
i had an old non-working laptop with 80Gb hdd.

I took the PS3's hdd out and replaced it with the laptop's one. Playstation did not recognize the file system and suggested to format the hard drive. Formatting was done in 10 seconds, after that system rebooted and logon screen appeared again :)

all saves from games, all music, pictures, videos and downloaded stuff are lost :(

fortunately you can re-download all purchased games from PS-Network for free.

now I have a 80Gb PS3 istead of 60Gb ..

hope this will help you too.

P.S. i've seen that Linux has support of PS3 file system. maybe this will help to restore all saved data.. but this is just my assumption
