Kind of a followup to this thread. I uninstalled EVERYTHING but the problem seems deeper...
When im booting my console without my ps3key and with original game (ac3) in player, the game doesnt show in "game". I have to eject and reload the disc.
When I press the ps-button to quit the game, xbm shows fadely and then its locked. Have to pull the plug. I have tried to start and stop the console to get a "clean" bootup and shutdown but once in a while it wants to send failure report to the sony-team.
Recovery menu, install firmware, reinstall 3.41. Sounds like something is corrupt to me, this should fix the problem, but remember you should only write to the firmware some 1000 times... so don't do it over and over, if it doesn't fix your problem its the hdd.
