I need help, my PS3 keeps going onto its favourite black screen and saying the following:

 

"No applicable update data was found.

Connect storage media that contains update data of version

4.11 or later, and then press the START and SELECT buttons

at the same time."

 

When I press START and SELECT like it says, it checks for a while and comes back to this.

What can I do to get back onto my PS3 properly.

Fat32 formatted memory stick. Update data in folder layout PS3/UPDATE/PS3UPDAT.PUP.

Create a folder 'PS3', inside that create a folder 'UPDATE', inside that put the update data. All names must be uppercase.

Re-check everything, it'll only work if it's exactly as I stated. 'PS3' must be top level directory, both directory names and the filename must be uppercase.

I tried all that and I was sure I had it saved correctly , I even saved it to sd card and tried with adapter, then on a DVD-R and a DVD+RW, still no luck , then I swapped out a hdd from an old ylod 40gb , still no luck, I played about with formatting and installing updates for hours . .... Then ... I also had a fat cech M03 ylod ( I love you Sony) this hdd had a lot of data on it ( gt4 oblivion ) so I was reluctant to put it in my slim as it would instantly format it and probably give me another error message ( cannot find hdd etc) ....... BUT ....I guess the Gamer Inside me took over and I unscrewed it from the fat hdd caddy and fixed it into the slim hdd caddy and inserted into the slim hdd caddy ..... As it formatted my heart sank thinking of all those years of game saves disappearing .... And all I was going to get for them would be an error message :( .....Formatting finishes , USB light starts flashing ..... Wait for error message....... UPDATE 4.11 Ready to install press ok ! it worked !
Summary : I think my 320gb died of corruption , I think the second hdd was also dodgy , I was absolutely certain I had saved to flash drive correctly BEFORE I attempted swapping drives .Try a different drive if you have a unimportant 2.5 Sata lying around or just buy a new 2.5 Sata hdd . Hope this helps someone .

You need to download your update from the correct website for your region. I'm in uk so got mine from Eu website , not U.S website.

Thank you so much, your solution worked like a magic ... Poeple listen up!!!! as mr/ms WowWowWeeWaa said, go to your own region's website (same region as your ps3), then download the software from there. For example: my PS3 is an Asian model (CECH-3006A) so i've redownloaded the firmware from SONY ASIA and it worked. Thanks to WowWowWeeWaa

Once you download the update file, transfer it to a FAT32 formatted USB stick. Create a folder called "PS3" and inside it another called "UPDATE". Place the update inside that folder and try to run the update again.

Yeah I had the same problem myself but I figured it out. I followed the instructions exactly from the sight, format into fat 32, make folders all upercased, and install the update into the last folder. But, sadly I had no luck and it didnt work. Then I went back to the last, which held the update, strangely the update had an extra ".pup" after the program in lowercased letters. So, I decided to re-download the update from the Sony website and it didnt have the extra ".pup" at the end. Try to check if it has ".pup" at the end of the update and if it does, get rid of it and it should work fine.

Thanks Guys! I'd been struggling with this problem for 2days (WORDS CANNOT DESCRIBE HOW I FELT!) It was soo frustrating. The applicable update data was eventually found after my 900th try lol (just a little exaggeration). I just kept trying different ways , pulling the power cable out & inserting the USB stick while the power was off, holding the button for 3 beeps, waiting for the Red power off light, holding the power button again for 1 beep & then a double beep to get it into safe mode and then scrolling down to system software updat but nothin worked. 

                To make mine work, i started from the off position with the red light on. Held on to the button  as explained above till i reached safe mode. Scrolled down to update system software insertd my usb stick with the latest update on it into the usb slot 1 on the playstation. Held unto/ kept pushing the usb stick into the slot with one hand while i clicked on the update system software with my free hand. Held on for about 20 seconds & PRESTO!!! UPDATE begins! 

                 Hope this works for you. My only Advice dont give up> check everything over. In my case i think the USB was loose. All the Best Guys.

You will need to use a pc/laptop , to put the update data onto a USB stick ,
Then you will have to put the USB stick with the data on in the usb slot on your ps3 and press start and select together .
The update data is found on playstations website .
There is a link a few messages above . Read up though . The data needs to be saved in a certain way for it to work . ( lots of posts on here about how to do this )

I had teh same problem. Or a message regarding corrupt file. What is happening is that the HDD you have is probably old and not working. Try a different SATA 2.5 HDD. This worked for me.

But this problem isn't solved. It needs to be re-opened. I also have the same problem the difference is I have tried all of your "solutions" and it still won't work, before you say it's my PS3 I'll add that I took my harddrive to a friends house. I took the drive I had used for 2 years and a complete blank one and tried to put the firmware on both.Turns out his PS3 does the exact same thing my one does and his works fine. As soon as he puts his HDD back in it works fine, now onto my question is it possible for me to buy a HDD with the firmware and update already on it and it'll work?

Don't get disouraged!! I had the same problem and tried everything.  Formatted my new HDD...didn't work...unformatted...didn't work...saved the PS3 update to the HDD and didn't work...finally with the HDD cleared (like new)...I downloaded the PS3 updated to an 8gb memory stick, placed it into the second USB input (the one on the right), installed the new 500gb HDD, and then restarted it....Boom....that worked!!! So, it would be my recommendation to everyone experiencing this problem to try this method first.  It was recommended earlier in this thread and it does work; trust me.  I was at the end of my rope trying to get this done, and I'm not that tech savy.  Restoring my back-up right now and looking forward to using that extra space.
