Hello, unfortunately there are only two ways to perform a system software update. Via internet, or system storage device. I would advise taking it to a friend or relative's if they have wireless internet? Here is instructions on how to set up your wireless internet. On the playstation main menu, go to settings then network settings. Select wireless then select scan, select the access point you wish to use. Then check the SS-ID for the access point, select the security you wish to use. Enter the encryption key and when you have finished this a list off connections will appear. Save your settings, test the connection and confirm the connection test results. Your ready to update the console. Any further questions please feel free to ask. Thanks for using fix ya.

How to perform system software update to renew encryption key on my playststion 3


You may have to renew the AACS encryption key to play content such as movies on commercially available BD video software (BD-ROM). If a message indicating that the encryption key needs to be renewed is displayed, update the system software to the latest version. The encryption key will then be automatically renewed.
AACS (Advanced Access Control System) is a copyright-protection technology that is used on Blu-ray Discs. The copyrighted content is protected by setting an encryption key on both the disc and the device used to play the disc.
An AACS encryption key expires in 12 to 18 months and must be renewed. There may also be other times when the key has to be renewed. in the manual

How do i do this to play this bd, you must renew the encryption key. perform a system software update to renew the encryption key.


Do you know if your PS3 has been updated to the most current firmware? In your XMB on your ps3 go to settings.. The very top option is system update. Click it and it will ask you to select a method. Update via internet. Go through this you should be good to go. Sometimes the key just has to be renewed, they usually expire 12-18 mos. Heres a link to the manual..
