Question about Sony Playstation 3 (PS3) Console

Open Question

Hi, I have been having trouble with downloading DLC of sizes 1.9gb, and another of 1.7gb. When I download it and keep the screen on the playstation store screen (to see how much time is left), the files download completely, but then i get the error message 80010038. When I cancel that screen I get a brief flash of the your connection to the server has timed out. When I download the files as background downloads via the XMB, either the file will completely download, then appear on the game menu, only to receive the same error message (and the file then appears as a corrupted file), or the download gets most of the way thru, then starts switching between "downloading" and "pending", and nothing further happens. I have been able to download DLC in the recent past (of 1.5gb), and even downloaded a demo of 690mb succesfully last week, but these files wont download. Can you help? With thanks, Mark

SOURCE: playstation 3 wont read some cds or play downloaded demos.

I'm also having this problem as well, it has to do with the OS and it is corrupted. It seems like the "Game mode" has been corrupted preventing us from playing games on the hard drive or reading games.

1).Shut down the system from the switch on the back.
2).Place and hold your finger down the on/off power button.
3).Turn the switch on the back “ON”, while still holding down the on/off power button.
4).Release your finger from the on/off power button, after you hear 2 beeps.

SOURCE: a ps3 start up frezee

ok my name is Juan I got 3 solutions for you the problem you have is with the VGA chip under the chip there is about a 100 small pins directly connected to the motherboard and one or more of this connections are not making a good contact some ps3's they don't turn on at all some turn on but they freeze right away and here is your 3 solutions
1._ trow your motherboard away
2._ buy another motherboard or ps3 I have motherboards on sale for 70.dls on ebay
3._ send your motherboard to me and I can fix it the only way to fix this problem is to put the motherboard in an special oven controlled by computer the computer will bring the temperature up to the point of melting the joints under the VGA to make any broken connection make contact again this is why the temperature has to be controlled by computer to bring the temperature up to the melting point of the solder and don't cause any other damage t any of the electronics and if you have saved games they will be there after your motherboard gets fix but if you buy another motherboard you will lose all of your games let me know what you think about it

It sounds like you don't really have a 'problem' per se, instead, you sound just curious as to why the size is different. I would proffer the idea the software you are using incorporates DVDShrink within it which is the usual method for DVD burning. I think the software is compressing and decompressing all by it's self. Am I close? Or is there something actually WRONG? As you said, the DVDs you make are fully functioning, so just gave an idea best I could to your query.

Here is the link to download the drivers for your printer-
Software & Driver Download for HP Deskjet 2480
Click the drop-down box and select your Operating System before downloading. Once the download is finished, double click the installer icon and agree to any on-screen prompts. Once the installation is finished, your printer should be properly configure for use.
If you are using a Windows computer but are unsure of what Operating System you have, click on the START icon at the bottom left hand corner of your screen, then click on "My Computer" or "Computer". Once you click, find a link that says "System Properties" and in the new screen that pops up, you'll be shown what your operating system is.
