Re: 3.56 Hard Drive Upgrade Problem

If you have an upgraded HDD and still NOT updated to 3.56, you can update that it will work(update with your original HDD inside the console).

 

If you have updated to 3.56 BEFORE inseting the upgraded HDD and have formatted your orginal HDD, unfortunately it won't work and you are in the same boat as us.

Re: 3.56 Hard Drive Upgrade Problem

I reckon we have to wait until 3.60 is released....it will probs come out just before Killzone 3 and Marvel vs Capcom 3....So maybe one more week without PS3.

Re: 3.56 Hard Drive Upgrade Problem

heres a website i thought people may find useful

 

it has the MD5 of every firmware released and release dates

 

http://www.eurasia.nu/wiki/index.php/Ps3OsRels

 

hopefully it will indicate when a new firmware is released without you having to download the PUP file yourself and checking the MD5

Re: 3.56 Hard Drive Upgrade Problem

Bazzziz GREAT post!!!!

 

I will share with you guys my latest e-mails received:

 

Hello!

I'm not doubting about your aknowlege, but this is not true as I always used the US firmware and my system always worked fine. And I've played my ps3 with the US FW 3.56 (before my HDD brake) perfectly.
And I've tried the mexican FW and it still does't work. And the FW file in the US an MX website are exactly the same.(As MD5 and Hash files are the same)

Regards,

Luciano da Conceição Junior

Re: 3.56 Hard Drive Upgrade Problem

I now doubt that a third version of 3.56 will be released....reason being that if they concentrate on a third version of 3.56 the next firmware (3.60 with cloud saving) might be delayed.

 

Its likely that they are fully testing 3.60 at the momment and have stopped all work on a 3.56 fix.

 

Especially as they would not benefit from this or any problem affecting the launch of Killzone 3 and Marvel vs Capcom 3.

 

p.s: Luciano, I appreciate your efforts in contacting Sony and then posting their reply on this forum.

Re: 3.56 Hard Drive Upgrade Problem

I don't worry if I have to wait one or two more weeks. The really problem is that our ps3 can be repaired.

Sony not pronunciates about problem, firm 3.60 will work throught USB update? This is the important question!

 

(Sorry for my english)

Re: 3.56 Hard Drive Upgrade Problem

at this time there is no way of knowing as to whether 3.60 will fix this issue. the problem lies in the fact that the faulty firmware is installed on the NAND is not letting the PS3 reinstall the firmware on the hard drive. the worse case senario is that the faulty firmware will not allow any firmware to be installed on the hard drive regardless of its version

 

if that is the case i expect Sony to admit its their fault and either fix/replace all of our PS3s free of charge

 

unfortunately we wont know this until Sony either officially responds or releases 3.60

Re: 3.56 Hard Drive Upgrade Problem

well id better hear something today otherwise im selling up. At least when the xbox fails, microsoft do something about it and help. Sony just keep denying stuff and telling me itl be sorted soon which isnt good enough after not having a working console for 8 days.
