Re: Unable to put in new hard drive after update 3.41

DIY Fix worked fine for me, took about a hour or so to copy from my 80gb

to a my new 640gb. Just need to do a quick format from the ps3 system

menu once you put your new one in & your ready to go again.

 

I wish backup restore didn't take so long, it took nearly 2 hours to

restore a 40gb backup. Smiley Sad

Re: Unable to put in new hard drive after update 3.41

My PS3 has life again!!!!

 

Would appear that Sony have fixed the firmware file, just download from the official link and it should work.

Re: Unable to put in new hard drive after update 3.41

People on the US forums are currently posting that they are now successfully installing the 3.41 FW on new drives, apparently the file may have been updated without any announcement being made. Can anyone confirm if the EU/UK firmware is working yet?

Thanks. I can also confirm it's now definitely working, I've just installed my HD & updated with no problems.

Re: Unable to put in new hard drive after update 3.41

sounds like good news! Smiley Happy

And a pretty quick turn around to get the solution out there too Smiley Happy

* YLOD? * *PSN Connection Problems?* *Blu Ray Problems

And we weren't even testing for that..

Hi folks,

 

As some of you have mentioned this issue has now been resolved.  More details can be found on the Offical PlayStation Blog.

 

Thanks for you patience.
