No. you need a memory stick or a flash drive (also called thumb drive or USB drive).
The Ps3 cannot save programs or files other than music, pictures and videos on the internal Hard Disk.

Connect storage media at save destination

How much free memory is left, and how are you tying to download your data? Via internet, media server, or usb? For the bluetooth devices, they may not have the same signals as your ps3.

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

and save it in the "UPDATE" folder.


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


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.

When i download a movie it says "connect storage media at sace destination"

It basically means two things:

1. You cannot save that file onto the PS3 hard drive through the PS3 Operating System (therefore, asks you for a different storage media to save it on).

2. You cannot run that software through the PS3 Operating System.

So what needs to be done is to get a storage device like an external hard drive or a flash drive to save the movie on.

Dont know how to download pictures

You can do it one of 3 ways.
1- Use the sony media manager and connect to your computer using usb cord. Sony Media manager found here-
2- Connect PSP to computer using USB cord, then go under my computer, and select the psp memory card(whatever its called). Then make a folder titled "PICTURE", and drag pics from your computer into your folder.
3- Over the internet on your psp. Go find an image on internet, put cursor over it, then click triangle. Go to file, then save image. That will download the image to your psp memory card
