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

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.

Every time its gets to 62% is says an error with (8002F997) ive tired the method by swiching the media sever to disable but that didnt work. what eles do i do


Error code "8002F997" means your PS3 is having issues updating your system software directly via internet. As a workaround you'll use external storage media, such as a USB thumb drive, to transfer the software to your PS3

1. Requirements

- A USB cable (not necessary if using a USB thumb drive)
- A PC with Internet access
- Storage media or a USB Mass Storage device such as a USB flash drive

2. Downloading and saving the software

- Plug in your USB drive to your computer, and create a folder on the storage media in which to save the update data. Create a folder named "PS3" on the storage media/USB device. Within the PS3 folder, create a folder named "UPDATE".

- Download the update data from

http://dus01.ps3.update.playstation.net/update/ps3/image/us/2011_0310_91ee193a2fa921a6fce780fc40236e3b/PS3UPDAT.PUP

and save it in the "UPDATE" folder.

Note:

Be sure to save the update data as noted below. If the data is not saved in the correct way, the PS3 will not recognize the update data. The folder name must be in all uppercase letters.

-> Location: Save in the "PS3" folder > "UPDATE" folder
-> File name: Save as file name "PS3UPDAT.PUP".

3. Updating the PS3 software

Note:

Do not turn off the PS3, or remove the USB drive, during the software update!

- Insert the USB drive/storage media into the PS3
- On your PS3, from Home Menu (second icon from the left) -> System Update ->Select [Update via Storage Media].

The system automatically searches for and finds the update data saved on the storage media or USB device.

Download massenger in dsi


You cannot download a messenger but you can access one on the internet here are the steps to do so:
  1. Go to the internet on your dsi and go http:/mobile.microsoft.com
  2. Go to the little link that says "windows live" and it says " hotmail, messenger, spaces"
  3. Select the link that says messenger, then scroll down to the part that asks you for your so called mobile carrier and select the option that says "other".
  4. The browser will go back to the home page of the windows mobile page
  5. Select on the orange access link that says "access windows live messenger from your mobile browser".
  6. The messenger sign in page will then show up
  7. Add the messenger sign in page to your favorites so you won't have to go through it all once again.

How do you connect storage media


Storage Media is just an USB stick or any type of memory stick (xd card, sd card, cf card, even micro sd is considered 'storage media') If you are trying to update and it is asking you to insert the firware with the storage media, you will have to put the files on a usb stick or any type of storage media and then insert the card in either the memory card slots (if you have a original 60/80g launch model), or use a memory card reader.

I hope you understand. Please post a new question if you need further assistance or click chat on my page.

Can play online but says cant sign into messinger


The "Can't connect to messenger" error does not apply to in game chat or voice messaging, but only to the version of MSN that can be downloaded from xbox LIVE. Go to network settings, then test the connection to the internet. If it says that your NAT type is moderate or High, you need to do some port forwarding on your router. You can find how to do this on Xbox's main site. The port to be forwarded needs to be number 3074. (or something to that effect)
