Xcross Media Bar will not show up

For some reason when i power on my PS3 the Xcross Media Bar will not show up. I have a 60GB version with all the latest updates. I can still play games, but the Xcross Bar will not show up when the PS3 boots up. I have no clue as to why this is happening? Any ideas will be appreciated.

Do you have it set to load the game on start? That's what it sounds like. Next time, hit the PS3 button to get to the xcross menu and change this option.

How to update version of psp


There are two ways to do this 1.For the latest version without having to use the internet,you need to buy one of the latest games then when you try to start it if your version is not high enough it will say ''An update is needed.Update now?'' say yes and follow it's given instructions.
2.You need the internet for this one.
Go to settings from the PSP homescreen,go to System Update you are given two choices Update via Internet and Update via Media Storage,choose Update via Internet it asks you a few questions on whether you want to update say yes to them all,then it should start downloading,when it has finished downloading (It might just ask you whether you want to install the update when it finishes downloading) go back to System Update and this time choose Update via Media Storage,it gives you some instructions and asks you to accept the license agreement then it will start installing,after it is installed go to games and Memory Stick and delete the update.
Good luck.

PSP not loading game


Hi,

I guess you must have updated your psp to more recent version while you were online. This i guess is one of the reasons why your psp games on your memory card is not showing on the screen.

You'll need to check the version your psp is running at the moment by going to System Setting > System Information, and you'll see the version that your psp is sunning on. Most versions above Version 5 might not play games on your memory card. You'll have to use umd's to play games.

Regards

Ps3 is choppy when online...why


This usually happens for a couple of different reasons.

Are you using wireless?

If so how's the strength?

I had a similar problem with mine and solved it by updating the router firmware to the latest version. It made it better, but if you want the least amount of chop then you've got to go wired for sure.

I cant play games from memory


Hi kalfan

What happened was that when you downgraded your PSP to -play game from your memory stick, that version was loaded onto your PSP for a reason. What you did now is install the latest firmware and that disabled you from playing games from your memory stick. You might have to get your PSP downgraded again with the older firmware version.
