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.
Solved! Go to solution
Create a folder 'PS3', inside that create a folder 'UPDATE', inside that put the update data. All names must be uppercase.
have done exactly what youve said to do but still keeps commin up with with same message above
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 .
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 )
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.
