PS3 Software cannot be run screen.

3 replies 94 views Edited Jan 17, 2013

I just formatted my PS3's hard drive(Restored the PS3 system) and now I'm getting a screen that says it cannot run the software. Says to connect storeage media etc.

 

 

I did such and it's a fat32 USB but it keeps saying "No applicable update data was found" I also made sure it was in folders"PS3"->"UPDATE"

What version is the System update file?  Did you just download it from the web site, or did you have it on your PC already?  The PS3 will not install a System update that is an earlier version than the last System update that was installed.
