PS3 3.0 firmware screwed me

I was going to play cod waw online and it said that i needed to download 3.0 firmware. I downloaded it from storage media and when the installation was done, it said that an error has occurred and i had to rebuild the hard drive and when I did, the entire ps3 was formatted. Is there a way to recover data because I didn't back it up. I also want to know if I was just un-lucky or if it was a common problem.

I've Noticed Elseware Someone Said It Was Impossible To Recover Lost Data On The Formatted HDD, Relating To The 3.0 firmware formatting the HDD, This Is Not True, As The PS3 Uses A Standard 2.5" SATA Drive, And There Are Companies That Sell/ & Have SOftware to read the PS3's .PSF & .PSU Formats, And restore The Lost Data, What Happens Is When The PS3 "Auto-Formats" The HDD It Does A Quick Format Leaving What Was Once There Still Accessible With The Right Software. I Know This 'Cause I Had To Do It With Mine When Firmware 2.80 Formatted Mine, And I Lost All My Music, & Friend Messages, Etc.

Hi,

I am sorry to hear regarding your problem. Once, formatted, you cannot recover data. I have seen this problem with many people, still it is not Very Common.

Hope i helped you.

Thanks for using ' Fixya ' and have a nice day!!

I just got cod waw game but computer doesnt support vertex data am i wasting my time. I have acer L3600


Hello there,
COD WAW has a minimum system requirements of the following:
CPU: AMD 64 3200+/Intel Pentium 4 3.0GHz
RAM: 512MB (XP) / 1GB (VISTA)
HDD: 8 Gigabyte
GPU: 256MB Nvidia 6600GT/ATI Radeon 1600XT
One main reason why you cannot play the game, is that Intel GMA 3100 is not capable of rendering the vertex shaders that has to do with lighting.
  • In order to play the game, you need to buy at least greater than the PCIE video card mentioned. It's that simple.
  • For example buy an ATI HD 4670 512MB or Nvidia 9500GT 512MB consider the memory.
  • Click the link for PCIE Video card installation procedure. Installation


Hopefully you will enjoy COD WAW third person shooter game.

My PS3 wont even start the latest system update, COD WAW (Error)


First try to update the PlayStation software itself and then update the COD.
Due to specs of PS3 soft none of updates will allow background download. and make sure that your internet connection is uninterrupted, I sugest u to use wired connection rather than wireless, and while update is in progress try to keep all other internet connection requiring equipment offline for smoother process.

Update me about your progress

Good luck
