PS3 60gig XMB & Update problems

I've got a problem to use my XMB. It freezes and doesn't want to return to the gaming screen. Cannot switch off or turn on my console using the XMB. When trying to update gaming software, it quits the game and doesn't want to start downloading. It just freezes and I have to switch my console off, manually.

My playstation 3 freezes in the middle of a game on MLB the show 10 Problem


Hi,
Turn your PS3 on, and have your TV on the correct input. Go to the "GAME" icon on the XMB, and select "GAME DATA UTILITY".


***NOT SAVED DATA UTILITY****
Find the game that you are having trouble with and press triangle, then select delete. (You are not deleting your game information don't worry, its just the update for the game).Start the game back up like you normally would, and re-download the update that is prompted when starting the game. You are done!
