Ps3 cant update system downloads

  • justcureus Apr 04, 2009

    My playstation 3, is sort of doing the same thing, but it only updates to 32% and then I get an error and if I turn it off and turn it back on it does the same thing, I can't get to the setting screen. It is wireless connected to my linksys router, I've reset the router, I've turned all the wireless stuff off in the house and turned on the PlayStation 3 system, still same thing, I know why when I put the my network password in the settings on the playstation, I typed in the wrong numbers and now I can't get back to the settings to change the password. I can't believe Sony wouldn't make a system that doesn't have "Back to factory settings".

Download the system update from another place. Once the file on the PS3 is corrupted or incomplete it will only try that file.

You can install the system update using your PC by downloading the update to a USB stick or Memory Stick.

Get the system update here.

I cant download windows vista sp2 from windows update. where & how can i download this update

Here you go.

The SP2 download through Windows Update is very touchy. I cant even think about dowloading it. I have installed it twice already. No less than a day after I do, my harddrive freezes. I reformat/reinstall and have not had any problems at all NOT running SP2 for the past month.
