SOURCE: my ps3 will not go to the dashboard and this error pops up

Your harddrive is loose, on the side, there is a panel that you can slide, and that will give you a acesse to the hardrive, underneath the playstation there is another panel located near that, flip that out and you will find a blue screw in there, unscrew it and you can now remove the harddrive, simply remove it , clean the dust off it, and gently slide it back into place

This is usually the result of the hard drive in your PS3 either:

* Has come loose or not making connection.
* Has crashed and will have to be replaced.
* Connectors or motherboard is damaged from hard drive.

Cannot start the appropriate system storage was not found


Sounds like a bad internal hard drive in the PS3, as a hard drive is used for the OS and data storage after it boots up. Or the unit crashed and could be recovered to factory defaults or something but without system storage, the unit is a boat anchor.

Unless you are technically able and willing, I would not recommend trying to replace the drive yourself - it is possible to do but does require a certain skill level and a lot of detailed and careful work; it might be cost-effective to have the unit repaired but you'd have to ask shops and price it out, or else think about getting a refurbed unit for way less than the price of repairing this one. Sorry not to be any more helpful but that kind of failure is very often not for the non-technical to repair.

I try to download stuff off the internet but it keeps saying connect storage media at the save destination what does this mean


File formats that the PS3 doesn't recognize as something that it can play can only be saved to a USB storage device, or a memory card. You can't download anything to the PS3 hard drive via the browser that you couldn't copy to it from a USB storage device. That is what the error message means. You have to connect an external storage device, because the PS3 won't store this file format on the internal drive. This protects the integrity of the system. If you connect a USB drive or memory card (you will need a USB adapter for the memory card if you don't have a launch PS3), then you can download anything that you want using the PS3 web browser.
