Question about Sony Playstation 3 (PS3) Console

1 Answer

Download issues We have been trying to download games to our PS3 and we get the following message: "insert storage media at the save destination". God love my hubby but he has thrown out all of the manuals so i can't look it up. If anyone knows what I am doing wrong, I would greatly appreciate the help.

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 try to download stuff off the internet but it keeps saying connect storage media at the save destination what does this mean


File formats that the PS3 doesn't recognize as something that it can play 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.

Sometimes called a thumb drive, a USB drive costs about $20 and plugs into the USB slot and is removable.

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.

Won't access hotmail


As far as I know, hotmail no longer works on the PS3 browser ever since Microsoft updated the site to that "Live" jargon. It used to work, but once they updated it, it no longer works, we must wait for sony to update the browser with an update, similar to the flash player problem
