Re: SANDISK CRUZER USB STICKS

have an 8gb one and it's fine.

 

is it a new one you're trying or an old one that used to work ok?

 

if it's a new one, ensure it's formatted as FAT32.

 

if it's one that used to work, does it work ok if you plug it into a PC? (just to check the usb stick still works and you can access the files)

does the usb slot work ok in your ps3?  e.g. can you plug the controller charger in there and it charges ok?

Re: SANDISK CRUZER USB STICKS

ive got an 8 & a 16gb, both not recognised by the ps3 ive had to resort to using a old 2gb stick of a different brand luckily it recognised that and as for the rest of your questions they all work in my pc and yes my ps3 usbs are working fine, ive been doing a bit of research and looks like other users are having similar problems, they suggest deleting the u3 utility off the sandisk sticks, havnt tried this yet but odd that my ps3 used to recognise them
