You must create a folder named PS3 and inside the PS3 folder create another that is named UPDATE. Save the update file into the UPDATE folder. Be sure to make the folder names in CAPS

Camera keeps telling me to reinsert the memory card. I've tried to new cards. When I put the memory card I was replacing because it is full, it goes back into the camera just fine.

As a last resort you could copy the full card to a computer and then delete the pictures on the card and use that again.

Here is the error list from the camera manual.
This is all I can suggest from here.

"Reinsert the Memory Stick Error"

Insert the "Memory Stick Duo" correctly.

The inserted "Memory Stick Duo"cannot be used in your camera
(See below).

The "Memory Stick Duo" is damaged.

The terminal section of the "Memory Stick Duo" is dirty

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

Can't restore data after linux install

In my case the problem was that the USB device did not re-mount after the PS3 restarted. Try this:

Start the backup restore process.
Remove the USB device sometime after the PS3 starts formatting
Once the PS3 has restarted, re-attach the USB device.
Wait for a while to allow the device to mount (about 15-30 seconds) before pressing the PS button to continue!

I am not able to open my memory stick of data traveler 40 gb

You can do then please
!. Check the same Memory Stick on another PC (if possible then of same configuration as your PC)
2. Make sure your Pc has Updated antivirus.

If both are Ok then follow the steps
1.Backup the Memory Stick data on other PC.
2. Format the Memory Stick.
3. Paste the data back to the Memory Stick.
It will solve your problem.

How do I take saved data from 1 ps3 to the next

on the memory stick you need to make files, starting with PS3, then the name of where the file is on the PS3 consoll e.g game data should have GAME DATA

PS3 says not enough memory

you need 2 delete data or get a memory stick

The backup utility does not seem to work properly. I have a 40Gig drive and the backup function works as normal, but when I go to restore it says no backup data. I checked on my PC and there are five files...

In my case the problem was that the USB device did not re-mount after the PS3 restarted.

Try starting the backup restore process, removing the USB device sometime after the PS3 starts formatting, then re-attaching it once the PS3 finishes restarting. Wait for a while to allow the device to mount before you press the PS button.

I was on an online game (CoD4) and the screen went black, i managed to press the ps button and quit the game, but when i was on the home screen, no disc showed up under the Game menu, ive tried putting...

The only thing you can do is get it replaced or fixed, unfortunately. Take it to wherever you got it with the reciept and they should be able to either replace it or send it back to Sony to get it fixed. If you want to keep all of your data, you'll need to get it fixed - but you can copy all your saved games onto a USB device if you want to (I'd recommend doing this whatever you do, just in case something happens).

Cant upgrade my ps3

maybe you didnt download the update data to the memory stick, maybe you downloaded it to your pc. Next time download the update data to the memory stick and not the pc.
