[UnAnswered] PS3 doesnt proceed to main screen after updating v2.20
Hi, my ps3 wont go into any kind of menu when it boots up, it just has that stupid gay waves and nothing else. no errors reported that it cant find a hdd or anything. this all started after i downloaded and installed the latest update 2.20. Im alittle unsure what to do.
Some more info about my ps3, its a Australian (Europe i guess) ps3 which is 60gb's. It has a custom mod which has the local hdd bay hooked up to an external (internal) hdd which is 1tb in size. I honestly had no problems with this up until now. I tried just simply unplugging the hdd from the ps3 and it does report on screen that the ps3 cannot detect a hdd if that helps.
Please help as i may have to take my ps3 back if i cant get any help
Edit: Hey, ive managed to get the ps3 booting up on the original hdd, however if i try putting the ext (int) hdd into it, it wont boot up at all. So im suspecting the hdd is corrupt and may need reformatting. How should i do this if it cant be recognised by the ps3? Should i format it in fat32 and try again?
You are correct- the 2.20 update has a bug which corrupts external drives larger than 250GB (Confirmed by [H]ard| & PS3Fanboy). I would not format the drive just yet- there is a chance that Sony will issue a patch for that.
Not too long after I installed v 2.20 all my settings reset and my PS3 wouldn't load up games but go to a blank screen. I manually unplugged the power cord and plugged it back in and now it works. I haven't had that problem since but I find it strange that it happened.
