Question about Sony Playstation 3 (PS3) Console

PS3 Memory Slots

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?

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.

Cant upgrade my ps3


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 John

I am trying to format a micro sd card card for my psp. i read that i could format it as fat 32 but it doesnt work. i also read that i can save a game on my computer from an already formatted sd card and...


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.

No source will read my memory stick pro duo mark 2


  1. Try re-formatting your memory stick from your PSP console. A memory stick that is formatted from a PC or other hand held console sometimes cause incompatibility problem with the PSP.
  2. If your PSP still can not read the memory stick, try checking your memory stick by using your friends PSP and see if they can access the memory stick.
  3. If the memory stick can be accessed by your friends PSP then there is a problem with the memory slot of your PSP.
  4. The only way to check the contacts of the memory slot of your PSP is to disassemble you PSP and take out the mother board.

I can not put music on my psp


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!

Green light to yellow in 1 sec then blinking red light


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.
