Have you updated your PSP yet?
If not, do it.

If this still is the problem, you have to wait until a new updated firmware updates the flash player.
you can't update the flash player on the psp.

I don't like the fact that you have to like to see video then it takes forever to get the video to play. I have to keep starting & stopping. I want it back the old way IG was easier.


Are you talking about Face Book? On the PS3? Just to let you know, the PS3 might be a great gaming platform, but when it comes to doing anything on the internet, it is very weak. You can't update JAVA, or the Flashplayer, so some web pages can't even be seen.

I try to download stuff off the internet but it keeps saying connect storage media at the save destination what does this mean


File formats that the PS3 doesn't recognize as something that it can play can only be saved to a USB storage device, or a memory card. You can't download anything to the PS3 hard drive via the browser that you couldn't copy to it from a USB storage device. That is what the error message means. You have to connect an external storage device, because the PS3 won't store this file format on the internal drive. This protects the integrity of the system. If you connect a USB drive or memory card (you will need a USB adapter for the memory card if you don't have a launch PS3), then you can download anything that you want using the PS3 web browser.

Why can't i download flashplayer


There are 2 ways you can do it.
1. From Adobe website, click Download now and it will self install: http://get.adobe.com/flashplayer/
2. If you are behind a proxy, it may not work, so you need to get a standalone version from a software website like Softpedia for Windows: http://www.softpedia.com/get/Internet/WEB-Design/Flash/Macromedia-Flash-Player.shtml

Theres a new system update for the PS3, Version 3.40, which doesn't work. After 8 hours it was at 50%, another hour later it stopped downloading. The option for the mediaserver is off, but still doesn't...


Hi

Just had the same problem and solved it this way. Download the update fromn the sony site to a pc. Use a USB stick and create a folder called PS3 and inside this folder create another called UPDATE (capitals important and the details of how to do this are on the web site). The turn on the PS3 in safe mode by holding the start button until you hear three beeps. This should take you to a screen with 6 options. Got to option 6 system update and follow the on screen intstructions and you should be ok.

Do need the internet, just go into your settings tab on the intro menu for the PS3 and hit system update. Use the via internet option and it finds the newest version...2.70. Takes a bit to download but, when it's done you get to enjoy watching the otherwise $30 drink coaster.

Cant watch movies or tv shows from the internet.


This isn't possible with the PS3's browser.

The ONLY way you can watch the Netflix movies is by downloading their special software and using Internet Explorer.

As far as ABC and flash goes the PS3 should be able to play "most" flash embedded videos as long as you have the latest firmware update (2.60)

Because the way the PS3 is designed you're not able to modify the browser in any way so you can't add any of the special software these websites use to distribute their content.

Your only "solution" would be to setup a linux partition on the PS3 but unless this is your cup of tea I'd stray way from things like this.

Hope this helps.

Let me know if you have any other questions and please don't forget to rate my solution.

Thanks!

PS3 80 GB - Error Code 8002991


Hi tomdonnatim,

If your PS3 is brand new, you most likely have to update the system's software to a more current version in order to properly play many Blu-Ray discs.

In order to update your PS3 system:
Go to the home menu, move to the "Settings" tab (the 2nd tab from the far left), scroll down to "System Update". It takes about 5 minutes to download and fully download the update, but it should solve the problem.

More information on the system update can be found below:

I want to enter specific sites on my wii internet channel and some sites ask to download a flashplayer but i cant do it ,why?


Consoles that support internet such as the Wii and PS3 do not support flash player becuase the PS3 browser is not supported by Flash player. You can download Yellow Dog Linux for Ps3 so that it will be able to run flash player, but no such thing exists for the Wii.......yet.
