Updating ps3 with flash drive

23 Apr

CECHA00/CECHB00 model PS3 owners can also use a Memory Stick, SD card, or Compact Flash to carry and apply the update.

Whatever storage method you use, you need to create a new folder on the drive called “PS3” and then download the new firmware to it.

Step four: Download the update from Sony's website and save it in the UPDATE folder on your USB drive. Step five: If the power indicator on the Play Station 4 is orange, hold the power button until the system beeps (approximately 7 seconds).

Once the system is turned off, connect the USB drive.

The fault seemed to be related to machines whose hard drive had been replaced, but other problems reared their head even if your PS3 continued to work.

The frustration this caused gamers was made all the worse by the fact Sony announced they were going to keep everyone waiting until June 27 to issue a fix.

Here's how to do it: Step one: Insert a USB drive with at least 1GB of free space into your computer.Step six: Boot the Play Station 4 in safe mode by holding the power button for 7 seconds.Step seven: Plug the controller in, hit the Play Station button, and select the "Update System Software" option.First off, download the firmware update to your Desktop or any place else that is easily accessible and make sure the full image downloads.From there, plug in your flash drive or insert your memory card.
