Background Download unavailable

5 replies 153 views Edited Oct 2, 2013

When trying to download a game bigger than 2 or 3gb . I can no longer download in the background. Not sure when this happened but I do know there was a time I could download large games in the background. If my internet cuts out and I sign out the download stops and can't be resumed.  Any Help would be appreciated.

 

This is what it looks like.

Please follow directions here to get into safe mode. https://support.us.playstation.com/app/answers/detail/a_id/1488/~/safe-mode-on-ps3

 

Choose option #3. Restart the ps3 and try download again. Did this correct the issue?

 

Please post back.
