    ps3 v 1.81 upgrade

    i have no network facility at home to upgrade the ps3 - but according to the site i can download it on a pc, burn to disc and the machine will udate from that - so i have the update - the disc goes in - and it says no data - i even put it on a usb stick and still i get no data - the data is there but its like i cant find a menu to select the data from - i have tried update from media and it says no data present - am i being thick or what?

    Observe the masses and do the opposite

    I dunno how it works, but do u have to burn the data as an ISO image or maybe you download it as a .ZIP or similar and you need to burn the extracted data and not burn the .ZIP file...?

    ALL SORTED - half arsed way to do it - have to have it in a folder called ps3 and in that folder a folder named update in capitals - then burn to cd/dvd/usb stick - the ps3 then recognises it in system update from other media

    i think all the 1.81 update did over 1.8 was to fix the RGB thing, cuz it kept turning itself off everytime you switched the PS3 off i beleive...

    why are you not enjoying online play at home!!?!?

    Use google, crack your setting and use a linksys router/modem
    USB modems suck big time.
