    Thanks, I had already deleted evrthing after backing up files. I still had no memory. I ended up reformatting the HDD and gained back 47 GB.

Okay just to tell you the PS3 has 5 gbs already taken up on it.
I think its because the memories of the Saved Files you have on the Ps3 is usually a big amount of room on the PS3. Btw the Ps3 has updates so if you have a low amount of GBs its probably cuz of updates you should have about 48 GB of room left on the Ps3 try deleting the saved Files or try looking at how big the saved Files are.

Have a 12gb PS3. Why does it indicate not enough memory?


You need storage, not memory. Memory clears out every time your turn the device off.

Ps3 keeps saying not enough memory for grand theft auto 5


This means that you only have 3031 mb of memory left, but the game requires that you have 8000 mb, you can get more by deleting games downloaded that you don't play anymore, delete a few and try again.

Hi,

Did you save music files on phone memory? If yes , it is time to move it to your memory card. Also check for other big files that still keep in phone memory. If able , just move also your theme files to memory card. Move / delete also old messages files, games (if any), etc in phone memory.

Like computer, your phone need enough space for caching.

Hope this helps.

Good evening when I start my ps3 with no disc in it it freezes on the begining screen cannot move to ps3 system update or anything to figure out what the issue is I have an original ps3 120gb it stated I...


Sorry, i dont have a solution for the freezing, but, as for freeing up some space; If you have alot off music of videos on there delete them and run them off of a portable USB device (USB key works, but so does and iPod). Do the same with music. Another solution is to delete some of your saved game files. Under the games section on the XMB, there is something called game data or similar to that. Delete some of the files from games you don't play anymore. Also delete game demos you have finished with. These will be located in the very bottom folder under Games. Freeing up some hardrive space may also help with your freezing problem.

Hope this helps,
- Matt

Note - To delete, press triangle and select delete.

My PS3 freezes up shortly after start of game, won't run movies


I believe you may have little or no memory left...
you can upgrade it with a 500 Gb HDD from SATA (2.5' 8or 16" MB Cache make sure it is 5400 RPM ) You can buy it at best buy..
I replaced mine... and it works great now.. when you replace it you can download the software into your external hard drive and transport it back into your ps3..and itll instantly upgrade it for you

Ps3 hard drive is saying its full when it shouldn't be


When you install a game it can sometimes install the whole game so theres no loading issues. (e.g grand theft4 3gb ish) if you go into saved game data it should tell you what games are installed, if you hit triangle and select info. it will tell you the size of the file. delete any games you dont use, and dont worry about your saves as they are in the game saves section.

Ratchet and clank will not play on my ps3


Get a music CD and put it in the machine, then press the triangle and select import. You may have to use more than one CD to get it to work. There are some files missing that are needed for Ratchet & Clank which are on music CD's.

It worked for me.
