Question about Video Game Consoles & Games
The mesage means that there are certain file formats that the PS3 doesn't recognize as something that it can not play and that it can only be saved to a USB storage device, or a memory card.
You can't download anything to the PS3 hard drive via the browser that you couldn't copy to it from a USB storage device. That is what the error message means.
You have to connect an external storage device, because the PS3 won't store this file format on the internal drive.
This protects the integrity of the system. If you connect a USB drive or memory card (you will need a USB adapter for the memory card if you don't have a launch PS3), then you can download anything that you want using the PS3 web browser.
Please let me know if you need more information.
