Error Code CE-30776-3

18 replies 3615 views Edited Nov 15, 2013

I installed a new TB Seagate drive, specs are at the bottom. I've booted up in safe mode and try to update the system with the larger firmware patch (around 900 mbs) on  a flash drive. I'm getting the error code CE-30776-3 when I press a button to update. Any help with this? I google searched and I can't find the error anywhere.

 

HDD Specs - 

Seagate 1TB Solid State Hybrid Drive SATA 6Gbps 64MB Cache 2.5-Inch ST1000LM014

I'm seeing the same error. Does yours pop up immediately?

I played my system last night with the new 1.50 update, today I got a 1tb hard drive (samsung) and installed it. My system can't seem to use the USB to update. I've made the proper folders and all. Even if I attempt to go back to factory setting on the new hard drive it gives me error CE-30787-5. If i attempt to add the updated from a USB in safe mode it gives me error CE-30785-3 but it does get to 100% for copying the update file. I have a hunch this is a hard drive issue for me.

So, I switched out USB drives and it didn't work right away. Upgrade software was giving me a critical error screen. So, I picked the bottom option, reinitialize ps software. Went through that and I'm good to go now. Setting up as I type. Hope this helps.

Same issue.  The PS4 in safemode did not like my external drive/enclosure (USB3 enclosure with a msata ssd  and a msata/sata adaptor,)  when I switched to a more traditional drive things went smoothly.

Hey guys! I've been trying to get my Seagate 1TB SSHD to work and install the PSN 1.5 update FOR OVER AN HOUR!! And FINALLY I got everything to work sesmlessly.  Make quadruple sure you download the CORRECT file update from the website (it will be over 800KB, almost 1GB) and put it on a USB that will go to the PS4. Also make quadruple sure your screws on your hard drive are not too tight. Do all these steps, then select the bottom option on the PS4 safe mode screen and follow the steps provided. Then BAM!!! You're all set! Good luck!

Did not get a 1TB HGST Drive (5K1000 HTE541010A9E680) to work at first - turned out that it seems to be a problem using a 32GB stick, with a 16GB Stick it worked fine (Both FAT32) :-)

I don't think the size of the USB matters... I used an 8GB. You just have to be extra careful that you download the correct update. I kept using the same USB, and finally about the eighth time it worked perfectly. It's just really touching and tries to be difficult. Lol

I actually disagree, I'm seeing this error on a Corsair GT 64GB stick formatted FAT32.

I've broken the volume down into a 31GB partition and it's still not working.

 

The machine firstly says the USB stick is not connected, then restarts itself.

The next time I tried it said the same thing.

Third attempt it said "please wait" for about 2 minutes with the circle spinning then crashed completely.

Fourth time it did the above but gave the "CE-30776-3" error instead of crashing completely.

 

I will try with a smaller sized volume but it appears my PS4 is now currently a brick because it can't handle the simple task of reading a USB device that works flawlessly on other computers.

 

This, yet again is most disappointing.
