The Micro SD and Memory Stick Pro Duo slots dont seem to be working on my ps3. It has a 60gig HD, is fairly new, and had been well maintained. They've worked fine in the past, but now when I insert a card the yellow light blinks a few times then goes solid, but the card icon never shows up on the XMB. External USB drives show up fine but nothing I put into the card slots. Any ideas?

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 update my Playstation I update from a memory card reader and have never had a problem. Only 2 times it wasn't recognized, but that's because I wasn't doing it right. I went back to the library next night and did it again and it worked. It sounds like you did it correct if the URL was PS3/UPDATE/PS3UPDAT.PUP. I used a Sony pro duo card insert into my reader, then when I get home I pull out the card, put it in it's Standard Size Memory Stick Pro adapter and slide it into my card slot on my PS3 and it worked fine, no problems. When there was a problem, it was because I wasn't entering the folder names correctly. Just remember to use all upper case letters and do in this order PS3/UPDATE/PS3UPDAT.PUP. Make sure to save the file name in the update folder. I've never update via computer. There's not suppose to be the word folder after UPDATE or PS3UPDAT.PUP. The URL should read like this in your address bar: PS3/UPDATE/PS3UPDAT.PUP
hope this helps
I don't know if this helps, but the PSP does not use SD or micro SD cards, it uses Pro Duo cards only, to format one all you need to do is put it in the PSP and choose Format Memory Stick from the System Information tab of the Options menu. I hope this helps in some way.
Ok, plug your mem. stick into your computer. if you don't have a slot it fits in, then leave it in your PSP and plug the PSP into your PC with a USB cable.(You cannot put music or anything else for that matter without a Memory Stick Pro DUO and a computer or PS3. If you dont have a USB cable or a slot for the mem. stick, this wont work.) Click on the start menu, go to My Computer, look for the REMOVABLE DISC J: (or K:, at least that's what mine says.) Double-click on the icon. when it loads, right-click, go to new, and select folder. Type the name "MUSIC", all caps. Open the folder then drag your music tracks into the window. You're done!
Hrm, is it well ventilated? Is it in an enclosed space? Try putting it out in the open so all the vents can properly breath. If that still fails to work you may have to get it serviced. You can contact sony at:
Hope this helps. Also be sure to rate if it did or not.
