I upgraded my internal hard drive.
Downloaded the 3.56 update. Put it in a PenDrive \ PS3 \ UPDATE folder, but I keep getting:
"The data is corrupted.(8002F225) "
I cant use my ps3 now because it.
SONY, PLEASE FIX THIS ISSUE.
Rename the PS3UPDAT.PUP file on the pendrive to PS3UPDAT.BAD
Download the update again.
If it fails again try downloading it from someone elses house (or work) just in case you have a bad file stuck in your ISP's proxy cache.
The problem only happens when I put the new HD on ps3.
When with the old hard drive(already have 3.56 installed), I get into XMB and use the file to update without problem.
But with the new hard drive, turning on the ps3, the screen displays a message saying it could not recognize the system and asking to insert the update on the stick. But then says that the data are corrupted.
The problem also is not in the HD. Surely this file from Sony that needs to be corrected as soon as possible.
I've got the same issue. Just put in a new HD. Of course I am in the US, not the EU...but this post came up on google so I just thought I would let you know that you arent alone.
I have exactly the same issue. This is not good! Maybe Sony made it illegal to replace the HDD on our PS3 :-)
Naw, Sony didn't make it illegal. I'm having the same issue, though, and I am furious. I talked to support... they've never heard of the data is corrupt error, and it isn't even in their system yet. Ugh...
Wow, same BS happened to me, I think Sony needs to come up with a new firmware that fixes this issue pretty quick. I can't believe it this new firmware was supposed to fix a "Security Flaw" what it ended up doing was locking us out of our ps3's, BS.
Hey guys I suggest that you call the support line so that we can get further info as to what is happening.
Same here, just upgraded to a new HD for the first time from the old 80gb one after succesfully updating the firmware earlier in the day. But when I went to boot the system I just kept getting the corrupted data error from the usb stick and firmware not found when I tried a blank dvd both with ver 3.56 in the appropriate folders of course.
Seriously hoping we get a fix for this soon as I'd very much like to be using my 500gb drive as soon as possible.
This is nonsense cus my HDD has 40gb. Well, I would like to play GT5 (8GB), DC online (16 GB), RE5 5GB), Metal Gear 4 (5GB)and I don't want to erase the datas and I can't simply change my HDD to satisfy what I want?
I read in another site that the models that has 256 internal memory ( only the old PS3's) is not having problems to change the HDD.
I think Sony have to think about the people that give the money to them like me cus I don't want to do nothing about piracy in my system.
I simply want to have a larger HDD to download games like Mass Effect 2, Prototype etc.
Sony fix it please.
As we all are seeing unwanted artifacts is generally also tried to change my 40gb hd and had the same error now and be awaiting afix from Sony!
It is small because despite what people think they are only human and it happens sometimes
a human thing would be to make an official post about it so people wouldn't worry
and a psn+ for inconvenience caused :p
in all honesty, who cares if its a small mistake or a big mistake, human or non human.... Its still a mistake and sony needs to get the fix out ASAP, as from my day of searching the internet trying to find a fix i have seen some pretty angry posts from users like us...
I do agree that they should have posted something to put peoples minds at rest and i think they should let people know when it is fixed sooner rather than later:Thumbs:
getting simillar issue but error code 8002f2c5 again upadate ver 3.56
so looks like different error codes for different models
this really is the UPDATE OF DOOM
we were woried on our forum that their were just a few of us but it looks like their are a lot more pepole on this forum
posting this so that pepole can check both for solutions and info
Well guys sony fails me agian.
I rang up sony australia agian yesteday. and they had no idea what i was talking about.
i guess we just got to sit and wait.
I sent an email to the guys at Kotaku AU to try and raise awareness and maybe ask Sony for something official. Will post here if anything is said.
Just rang Sony Support AU (general inquiries) they are aware of the issue and are working on a fix but don't have an ETA on when the fix will actually be out. He basically said to put the old one in and use that until they fix it.
