SOURCE: PS3 won't recognize disks after update

You can back up ANYTHING you wish to keep via the backup utility what I'm about to tell you to do will essentially erase your harddrive. After backing up any data you wish to keep, restore your PS3 system and to a FULL ( not quick ) format of your harddrive ( this will probably take a couple of hours ). After that, if it still doesn't work call SONY.

Hope that helps..........

If your PS3 is connected online it should have the newest update already. In the event it's not. You want to go to sony playstation support.com insert a USB thumbdrive into your computer. Download the newest update, insert thumbdrive into the USB of the PS3 under system settings select install update. It will take a few minutes then your PS3 is up to date.

How do I play a blu ray DVD on my PS3. I am not hooked to the internet. It is saying that I need a new encryption key. What can I do to watch this Dvd?


You need to update your PS3 software, which should also update your encryption keys. I understand that you don't have internet, but do you have a friend, etc. with internet where you could take your console to?
The reason for this: encryption codes are updated to enhance security of the discs (in an attempt to prevent copying, etc) but also new codes are added when new movies are released.
Unfortunately, these updates are periodic, and will probably need to be done once or twice a year. Good luck.

I need to renew my ps3 BD encryption key to watch blue ray movie


Some newer blu ray discs require that your system be updated to view the movie. This is due to a security "encryption" set by various movie companies. (they are trying to prevent people from copying their movies).
If your PS3 is connected to the internet this should be done automatically when trying to view the movie.
hope it helps

I tried to watch a blu-ray last night and my playstation said it could not be viewed until the "encryption key" was updated. What does this mean and what should I do?


Hi,

You need to update the system software so the encryption key can be renewed.
You will need an internet connection to the PS3 for this otherwise you will not be able to view the latest Blu-Ray movies.

From what I can remember it is in settings > system update.

Once the system is updating DO NOT switch off the PS3 or mess with the controllers until the update is finished and has rebooted the PS3.



Regards.

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
