Um, download the Playstation Network from your PC?

Well, at the bottom of this page, you can seethe PS3 System Update box. That has links and instructions on how to download the PS3's Latest System Software using a USB drive. And you need a USB drive, or a CD/DVD/Bluray, or a memory card.

But other PSN Stuff like games, game updates, game dlc, etc, you cannot download using a PC. You can downloading using the PS3 only.

What exactly are you trying to download?  If you want to download games, demos, etc. you need to connect your PS3 to the Internet and download directly from the PlayStation Store on the PS3 itself, it's not possible to download items on your PC and transfer them to the PC.

|Welcome to the PS Community.

 

golfergurl55, you cannot download PS3 downloable content (DLC) from the PSN store to your PC to then transfer to the PS3 console.

 

What you can now do is: access the PSN Web Store & purchase the DLC. Then, on the PS3, download this via your Download List

 

PSN Web Store

https://store.sonyentertainmentnetwork.com
