We are trying to play a blu-ray disc in our PS3 and it is telling us we need to preform a system software update to renew the encryption key? What do we need to do?

If your PS3 is connected online it should have the newest update already. In the event it's not. You want to go to sony playstation insert a USB thumbdrive into your computer. Download the newest update, insert thumbdrive into the USB of the PS3 under system settings select install update. It will take a few minutes then your PS3 is up to date.

Trying to upgrade my hard drive to 250gb. PS3 will not recognise new hard drive even after I format it to FAT32 on a computer. When I put new hard drive into the PS3 it tells me to format hard drive and if...

If your PS3 is telling you to format your hard drive, then it is recognizing it. You have to reformat the hard drive using the PS3, not your computer. If you don't have the option of formatting your hard drive then you may have to download an update from Sony and then run that disc to format the hard drive. Some of the updates will completely erase all saves, downloads, & etc when done from a disc. So be sure to use this with your new hard drive in the PS3, just to be sure not to lose all your stuff on your old hard drive. Sony has a "walk-thru" on these things on their website.
