Re: camt up grade my ps3

You must create a folder named PS3 and inside the PS3 folder create another that is named UPDATE. Save the update file into the UPDATE folder. Be sure to make the folder names in CAPS

Cant upgrade my ps3

I update my Playstation I update from a memory card reader and have never had a problem. Only 2 times it wasn't recognized, but that's because I wasn't doing it right. I went back to the library next night and did it again and it worked. It sounds like you did it correct if the URL was PS3/UPDATE/PS3UPDAT.PUP. I used a Sony pro duo card insert into my reader, then when I get home I pull out the card, put it in it's Standard Size Memory Stick Pro adapter and slide it into my card slot on my PS3 and it worked fine, no problems. When there was a problem, it was because I wasn't entering the folder names correctly. Just remember to use all upper case letters and do in this order PS3/UPDATE/PS3UPDAT.PUP. Make sure to save the file name in the update folder. I've never update via computer. There's not suppose to be the word folder after UPDATE or PS3UPDAT.PUP. The URL should read like this in your address bar: PS3/UPDATE/PS3UPDAT.PUP hope this helps John

Corrupt memory stick

It needs to be replaced.
You can try reformatting it but 9 times out of 10 that doesn't work. If you want to try it do this:
1. Remove the corrupt memory stick from your PSP.
2. Go to system settings and choose format memory stick.
3. When it tells you all the data will be deleted and asks if you're sure, insert the corrupt memory stick and choose yes.
Either way you are going to lose all your data from memory so make sure you go ahead and say yes to this.

No source will read my memory stick pro duo mark 2

  1. Try re-formatting your memory stick from your PSP console. A memory stick that is formatted from a PC or other hand held console sometimes cause incompatibility problem with the PSP.
  2. If your PSP still can not read the memory stick, try checking your memory stick by using your friends PSP and see if they can access the memory stick.
  3. If the memory stick can be accessed by your friends PSP then there is a problem with the memory slot of your PSP.
  4. The only way to check the contacts of the memory slot of your PSP is to disassemble you PSP and take out the mother board.

Can't restore data after linux install

In my case the problem was that the USB device did not re-mount after the PS3 restarted. Try this:

Start the backup restore process.
Remove the USB device sometime after the PS3 starts formatting
Once the PS3 has restarted, re-attach the USB device.
Wait for a while to allow the device to mount (about 15-30 seconds) before pressing the PS button to continue!

The only thing you can do is get it replaced or fixed, unfortunately. Take it to wherever you got it with the reciept and they should be able to either replace it or send it back to Sony to get it fixed. If you want to keep all of your data, you'll need to get it fixed - but you can copy all your saved games onto a USB device if you want to (I'd recommend doing this whatever you do, just in case something happens).

maybe you didnt download the update data to the memory stick, maybe you downloaded it to your pc. Next time download the update data to the memory stick and not the pc.
