PS3 Firmware 3.41 Issues Arise for PlayStation 3 HDD Upgraders


Sponsored Links
209w ago - Today Examiner.com (linked above) reports that numerous users who opted to upgrade the PS3 HDD are now experiencing issues with the recently released PS3 Firmware 3.41 update.

It is not yet determined if these issues are related to the PS3 Firmware Patches Sony instituted beginning with PlayStation 3 Firmware update version 3.41, however, there is currently a [Register or Login to view links] on Sony's official board covering the issues.

To summarize, quoting from [Register or Login to view links]: "The problems being reported are the following: PS3 owners are unable to update their system to firmware 3.41, HDD upgrades aren't being allowed, systems are crashing, and after installing a new HDD the system isn't fully downloading the file and then prompts users with a message stating 'no applicable data found'."

Sony did respond to online inquiries regarding this topic with this response:

"We apologize for any inconvenience you are experiencing with upgrading Internal Hard Disc Drive (for PlayStation 3) on your PlayStation(R)3 computer entertainment system. The information available to our Consumer Services Department does not suggest that this is a problem PlayStation(R) owners are likely to experience when upgrading the HDD with 3.41 update. Sony Computer Entertainment America (SCEA) strongly supports the quality of its products and backs them with full confidence."

Sony is currently recommending affected users update their previous PS3 HDD first to see if the update works with it, followed by updating from a thumb drive formatted in FAT 32 with the 3.41 PS3 update.

The thing is, some who have upgraded their hard drive have reported updating to 3.41 without issue... so like most new PS3 Firmware releases it appears the problems are isolated to specific users or configurations at this time.
