PS3 freezing after 4.40 update

I recently updated my PS3 to firmware 4.40. The PS3 was working fine all day Friday but when I turned it on this Saturday morning the PS3 keeps freezing when on the XMB and when loading games it takes considerably longer than usually. Also I am downloading Bioshock to and the downloading process has stopped at 9505 MB. My intetnet is fine so that isn't the problem but aside from the download the PS3 still freezes and unfreezes constantly. Is there any way to fix this problem without having to delete all my save files and game data i.e. all my DLC.

Yes, I have tried everything except restoring the whole ps3. I don't want to lose all my data. Even if I did restore it update 4.40 will still be there. I have even tried reinstalling the updat but it still freezes after it is finished so I will probably just have to wait for an updat eto fix this

This doesn't sound like it is related to the update and this is ore incidental than anything. Is the connection issue affecting every game or just certain games?

 

I would restart the router and modem, and re-establis a connection to the PS3 to see if this makes any difference.

Got most of my system running again after updating via USB, but now can't access my account management, the store, or home. Error is 80710D36. This began earlier when I was trying to download a new purchase - got to 94% and won't go further.

I have the original fat PS3. Didn't have any problems until 4.40. Now some of my games freeze at random points during play (NBA 2k 11, GTA IV, Episodes from LC). Sometimes the disc won't show up on the menu until I insert in several times. Never had this issue before 4.40.

This has to be either a problem with the update or with the PS network. I bought my machine model CECH-3004B in November last year and it was playing perfect until this damn update. Last weekend I bought NFS Most Wanted and 4 of the DLC packs from the Playstation store, 1st I couldnt find any of my cars from the DLC i bought, then when I wanted to go play online I had to get update 1.03 for the game which is 2060mb, the download started but the time left jumped to 940minutes and sometimes even higher. Once or twice I got it to start download with a better time of 180minutes but then every time it got to 60, 80 and 90% it seem to disconnect from the PS Network. I've been trying for the past week already to get the updates to download and wasted over 20gb of my internet bandwidth on trying to get the updates to download. I'm not sure if the game must connect before I'll get my DLC stuff but up to now I havent recieved anything yet.

Also since the update my PS3 has been doing more and more strange things, not ejecting discs not picking up my GTDF steering wheel some times, not switching on when i use my PS button on my PS3 wireless control and since yesterday after reinstalling V4.40 PS3 update my machine now also started freezing the whole time, just getting this message posted took me 4 tries already after having to reset because machine freezed up.

I have tried everything, started by restoring PS3 settings, then formatted my machine, uploaded new update data and yesterday I even got a new dsl router and got my ISP to reset and check my lines and conections. Cant SONY just revert us to the previous firmware used before the last update, when they fixed the new updates they can release it again? I'm at the point of returning my PS3 either for a new one or just to get my cash back, Im slowly starting to feel switching from PC gaming to PS3 was a bad decision, or that I should have just chosen to get a XBOX, if it wasnt for Gran Turismo I dont think I'd waste any of my time on Playstation3.

I too have problems like this, after the update which went rather fine I suffered from lag issues and system freeze up, also PSN lags and is jumpy nothing is smooth about it also when installing games it's freezes up. It seems the update broke the ps3.

i also having problems from this update what it means your system might not of installed the update properly so you have to try installing with a usb or try another hdd if this doesnt work we gonna have to wait the next update but i surprised this is happening with ss anyways try those safe mode doesnt because the update stays on the hdd let me know if anything works i contacted customer support they didnt even know that this happens they dont think that the update causes this

Hey mods, will Sony respond to our pleas for help or will they leave us hanging? Weeks later and still no fix for their stupid update.
