Hi,

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.

Connect storage media at save destination


How much free memory is left, and how are you tying to download your data? Via internet, media server, or usb? For the bluetooth devices, they may not have the same signals as your ps3.

I am trying to download something on the my ps3 and it just keeps sayin connect storage media at the save destination and i dont no what to do


Sounds like what you are trying to download is too large for the space available, OR you are choosing to save in an area designated for external storage.

Try downloading again and when it prompts you where to save, ensure its in an area that your other files are at.

When i download a movie it says "connect storage media at sace destination"


It basically means two things:

1. You cannot save that file onto the PS3 hard drive through the PS3 Operating System (therefore, asks you for a different storage media to save it on).

2. You cannot run that software through the PS3 Operating System.

So what needs to be done is to get a storage device like an external hard drive or a flash drive to save the movie on.
