To do a system update on ps3, create an new user and do the download from another country. I had this problem for the longest time, so that's what I did. I'm in the US and ended up doing the update from Australia on the first try. I attempted to go back on my normal user name and tried the updates from the US from time to time, and sometimes they work and when they don't I use the other user. There isn't a problem with the PS3, it's the Playstation servers (where Sony stores their information like updates, and connecting to play on line gaming). I hope this helps and good luck!

Update it via storage media. Do that by going to the playstation website and put your flash drive in. After that, create a folder and name it "PS3" and then create a folder and name it "UPDATE" and put that folder in "PS3" There is a button on the website that downloads update data. When that is done, put that data in the "UPDATE" folder. Then put the flash drive into the Playstation 3 and go to "system update" and chose update via storage media

    Did you name the folders? Make sure you name the folders so you can find it when you plug it into your PS3

Try uninstalling the version you have now and reload it. My guess is the One you have downloaded now is corrupt and The new update wont overwrite it.

My bush mytablet 2 wont update apps, what can i do? I downloaded games fine but now they wont update.


Perhaps you first have to remove the old apps, before you can install the new ones?
I'm used to iOS, There he apps are updated almost automatically as soon as they are available. On my devices I have some updates every day and never has anything going wrong.

Wont play burnt dvds


Hello i have the same player and i had to do a Firmware Update to update my player so it won't cause this problem (also it could play the recent new blu ray movies). Go to www.sharp.net.au for Australia or www.sharp.net.nz for New Zealand. go to Support, Downloads, put in your Model number then it should have a list of updates you can use. If it says for USB then download it to your USB and then plug it into the back of your player. Go through your operation manual to how to do Software Update, then follow the instructions. If it says for cd/dvd then burn it onto the disk first.
I hope this helps. I can play burnt dvd's on mine with no worries.
