Question about Sony Playstation 3 (PS3) Console
I purchased my PS 3 in February of '08. I never performed any updates.
I just rented Gran Turismo 5 from Blockbuster.
The screen stated that I had to perform updates. I followed all ons creen commands.
the screen now is frozen at:
Accessing game data
Please do not swith off the PS 3 sysytem while the HDD access indicator is flashing
the OK is flashing the arrow is on the OK
When I press X (or any other button) nothing happens
What do I do? I know I am not to turn off the PS3.
I had the exact same problem (and apparently many others did as well). I did have a Rock Band dongle plugged into the PS3 when the problem occurred. I don't know if that was a contributing factor or not. I unpluged the Rock Band dongle, then connected the (wireless) PS3 controller directly to the PS3 console with a USB cable, then I turned off the system and restarted it a few minutes later. I was then able to click on OK and proceed with the installation.

This happened to me and I just turned off my PS3 and turned it back on. I did do some updating to the system as it's brand new but then I went back to GT5 it worked

Disconnect the console from any internet links, then try it again. Other then that, I would call sony to see what to do.

a 6ya expert can help you resolve that issue over the phone in a minute or two.
best thing about this new service is that you are never placed on hold and get to talk to real repairmen in the US.
the service is completely free and covers almost anything you can think of (from cars to computers, handyman, and even drones).
