Hey fyocksofresh,

If performing a system update with your PS3 fails, you may wish to try updating using a USB flash drive and your home computer instead. In order to do so, you'll need to create the following folders on the flash drive itself:

PS3 > Update

Once this is done, you'll want to visit the website I've provided below to download the most recent software version. The link should be easily found under the "Download the System Software" heading on the page.

http://playstation.custhelp.com/cgi-bin/playstation.cfg/php/enduser/std_adp.php?p_faqid=275

Once you've downloaded the file and transferred it onto the USB flash drive, connect the flash drive to your PS3 and choose "Update via Storage Media" instead of the normal internet option.

In the event that updating the software this way doesn't work, there are a couple of things you may wish to try before attempting again.

1) Delete all the cache files and cookies from your PS3's internet browser.

2) Power cycle your PS3 (turn it off completely, then back on) before attempting again.

3) Restore the default PS3 system settings. This should clear any potential problems that may be caused by your current system software version.

If none of these help, I'd strongly suggest contacting Sony for more information. You should be able to do so by calling their toll-free hotline at 800-345-SONY (800-345-7669) or by filling out an online repair request form.

Hope this helps you out.

Sincerely,
Aaron

Cant update system so i can play blue rays


You can update your ps3 without going online on the ps3. Go to http://us.playstation.com/support/systemupdates/ps3/index.htm on your computer and download the newest update. Download it to a flash drive. Insert this into the USB port of your ps3. save it to your hard drive, and then update your system from the XBM. Also, newer games (little big planet 2) have the firmware on them so if you buy/rent them, you can install from the disc.

We are trying to play a blu-ray disc in our PS3 and it is telling us we need to preform a system software update to renew the encryption key? What do we need to do?


If your PS3 is connected online it should have the newest update already. In the event it's not. You want to go to sony playstation support.com insert a USB thumbdrive into your computer. Download the newest update, insert thumbdrive into the USB of the PS3 under system settings select install update. It will take a few minutes then your PS3 is up to date.

Won't download update to play Call of duty 5


I saw a previous post online for when game updates don't download. Check your "Network Settings" on your PS3. Make sure that the "media server" option is DISABLED. That should work

Ps3 supports over 1000 ps1 and ps2 titles. Make sure you hook your ps3 up to the internet and download the latest firmware updates. Odds are your system will be able to play all or most of your ps2 games once you update the ps3 online.
