Cant play blue ray movie. wants to system update. how does this work


There are some firmwares that support playing movies on the game, if the files are not complete, then the ps3 will not be able to play any movie, and some times it might affect game discs as well.

So when next your playstation 3 wants to system update, allow it, so it will automatically restore the files that are necessary to play a blue ray disc.

Systems update is done online, so you must have an internet connection either wireless or by connection for the playstation, and if it pops up the system update message next time, allow it. It will install new firmwares for the playstation 3 and you will be able to enjoy better services on the game.

Take care and good luck
Hope this was helpful

Ps3 bought in 2006 will not play ps3 games It

May sounds like a silly answer, but, do you have your PS3 hooked up to the internet. If not, there are many updates for the system which you are missing and therefore the new games will not play because of missing system updates. Hope this helps you out.

Installing games

If you see an error #8001020F, or you are having issues with your trophies you have run up against the current global issue with the Playstation Network. Most PS3 games will check the trophy status online before they load whether you are actually playing online or not. Sony is aware of the issue and is working on it. The problem is apparently limited to the older PS3 units. The slim units can still connect online. They have not released an ETA at this time. Sony is currently updating their Twitter page with their progress. You can check the following link for updates:

I have the latest update on my ps3 which is 3.01 and every time i play games a system update flashes up which is 1.04 so its been done ages ago. also can't get online as it says i need to update but when u...

The latest PS3 update should now be 3.10.

The updates the games ask for is a game update, and not a system update.

You should only have to do the large game update the first time you play a game, and then it may have smaller ones later on.

I cant Play online

Make sure both the game and system software are updated. The game will prompt you to update when you first start the game. To update the PS3 Software, go to the [Settings] menu and select [System Update]. Then give it another go.

My PSP3 is not reading correctly games and movies

I am not sure if this is the actual problem but as with many PS consoles, they go through many firmware updates. By now they should be around 3 or 4. After Firmware 2 they, hopefully temporarily, dropped PS2 and PS1 compatibility. PS2 had 12 different firmwares 12 being the firmware for the PS2 slim. I am guessing that with the firmware they have right now for the PS3 that there are still bugs to work out. There are 2 main reasons that I am holding out on getting a PS3. Firstly, it is too darn expensive. Within a year or 2, with blu-ray winning the HDVD war, prices for Blu-ray players as well as associated technologies will go down, including the PS3.  And Secondly, The Firmware is way too new. The current firmware, as far as I know is not currently compatible with older PS consoles and still has some problems with it's own games. This might account for your problems with updates. It would be awesome, and if you want you can pose this possibility to Sony, to have flashable firmware so you can update as new firmware is introduced. Given the things I just said, you have 2 options, Either you can continue playing realizing that the problem may be with the game update and just play without it, or you can return your ps3 and wait for newer firmware to come out. If you have the money, and are willing to do some surgery on your ps3, first try resetting the internal harddrive. I am not sure how you do that. You will have to look that up online. If that doesn't work you can try buying a new hard drive (Western Digitals Scorpio Blue 500GB is a good one, i've heard. I am currently running it in my laptop. Also has a looooooooottttt of memory space for game saves. After the PS3 software is installed you have like 440-460 GB of free space). If nothing else works, just take back the system and wait for newer firmware to come out. I recommend waiting for update 7 or 8. hopefully by then, they will have added back backwards compatibility so you can play your ps2 and psone games as well.

Ps3 is have a error 8002f997 i cant update

This issue caused major problems for me. I reformatted the drive/os twice and was about to put this in the trash as I could not update firmware nor get game updates. I went hard wire as well as wireless. I powered down everything overnite as some fixes suggested. I down loaded onto a USB thumb drive several times all failing to the grand 8002F997. All to no avail. I tried one last thing I hopped onto a local wi-fi that was free and not password protected. Bada Bing, firmware took, game updates took and I am downloading all the previous games I purchased online. Funny thing is that I do not have a problem playing online games on my network ?!?!?!?!
