PS3 not working after Version 4.11 update

[ Edited ]
14 Replies 5,374 Views edited 19-02-2012

I downloaded the version 4.11 update recommended by SONY; however it has ruined my PS3. Now, when I switch the thing on I get the message "Connect controller using a USB cable, and then press the PS Button". This being done, another message is displayed:

 

"The system software cannot be run correctly. Press PS button to try and restart the system. If the system cannot be restarted, you must reinstall the system software.

Connect storage media that contains update data version 4.11 or later, and then press the START and SELECT buttons at the same time. For information on how to obtain update data, refer to SCE web site for your region."

 

I have downloaded version 4.11 from PS site; however after inserting memory stick into PS3 and completing the above instructions, it states "No applicable update data was found".

 

Can someone please help?

On your memory stick create the folders PS3 > UPDATE > then place the update.pup in there and the ps3 should pick it up

Hello,
I have got the same problem and i tried to fix this proplem as recommended by born2destroy but it doesnt work.I always get the same error message:
Connect controller using a USB cable, and then press the PS Button". This being done, another message is displayed:
 
"The system software cannot be run correctly. Press PS button to try and restart the system. If the system cannot be restarted, you must reinstall the system software.
Connect storage media that contains update data version 4.11 or later, and then press the START and SELECT buttons at the same time. For information on how to obtain update data, refer to SCE web site for your region."
 
The version 4.11 was downloaded from the official PS site; however after inserting memory stick into PS3 and completing the above instructions, it states "No applicable update data was found".

 

Any idea what can cause this problem ?

Did you use CAPS for the file names PS3 and inside that UPDATE with the PUP file inside that?

Re: PS3 not working after Version 4.11 update

ohh its okay now i used my blackberry to create the same folders and put the download into that folder then inserted the USB into the ps3, so for anyone like me who doesnt have a memory stick then try using your mobile phone :smileyhappy:
