Exclamation Anyone having trouble with PS3 System Update 2.3

Hey everyone, was planning movie night for today but it seems as though my PS3 can't find the update. I get error 8002A212 whenever I try to sign in. When I prompt for an update I get the I have the latest update message. Weird huh! I tried downloading on my PC and every time I put it on a my USB while copying I get a corrupted file message. I have downloaded it 4 times already. Anyone know what's going on.

Thanks
sufs

Odd. I haven't downloaded it personally, but I imagine it's a popular update. Many people who bought the PS3 don't do every system update. The server is likely just busy. If trouble persists, I can mail you a data CD. But by the time it got to ya the servers would likely calm down enough to download it.

Have you tried downloading it directly to your PS3?

You mean through the internet browser, did not think of that will give it a try. No need to send anything but appreciate the offer chances are it will work by the weekend.

As for the PC ordering my 2 graphics cards next week have some relatives from the US coming to visit so they will bring it with them. As for the rest I'm just going to a wholesale shop, BTW liquid cooling worth it or just hype. Heard thous cards get really warm and have fried some gear.

As long as you don't overclock anything, and the tower is in a well ventilated place, you'll be fine.

Liquid cooling in PCs is like "spinner" rims on a car. It just makes it look cool to some people, but those who know better understand that it's just fluff.

I guess it MIGHT be need for uber ultra PCs, but I don't think you'll need it.

Also, if it's not too late, look for a power supply with inputs on the back of it instead of wire harnesses, that will help tremendously with ventilation.

No wires:


Wires (most have about twice as many as this pic)


Those wires end up cramped up in the tower, take up a lot of space and aren't good for airflow. I'd look into getting a power supply without the wire harnesses for ease of use and better ventilation.

Not the internet browser. There should be a prompt that takes you straight to it when it tells you there's update available. It's how I always do it.

If there isn't a prompt that takes you to it, look for it in system settings. I'll fire up the PS3 later and see exactly where it's located.

I do hope that was a bad joke. Spinners on a car add no performance value, liquid cooling on a PC does.

While I wouldn't recommend liquid cooling (water + expensive electronics just don't mix) I wouldn't knock a well tuned PC with it as having "fluff."

Maybe a bit of a stretch on my behalf, but I don't see liquid cooling being worth the time and money.

Performance fans and proper installation does the job just fine on high end PCs, just as performance rims do the job on fast cars. Spinning rims and liquid cooling are not needed IMO.

Depends on how you look at it. If you're taking a cheap pc setup and overclocking the hell out of it then yes liquid cooling is worth the time and money. If you're just running stock speeds then I wouldn't say it's worth it.

Liquid cooling isn't just OCing. Some Liquid cooled PCs the designer's choice was noise reduction.

My old Thermaltake VA1000 had 9 fans!!! That SOB was loud! fully loaded Northwood would hit 32c, but boy was it loud.

And going passive cooling those heatsinks are massive, expensive, and I question them not bending the motherboard.

My buddies cooling system is much louder then my fans, but what do I know. I've fried up 2 processors and a mobo in the past 12 months OC-ing.

I swore to myself never to over clock again.

I think Kamspy exaggerated a bit to make a point that it is not as important as some make it out to be. Anyway I asked an engineer friend of mine whom worked at Dell before and he said to follow Kamspy advice as it was on the money.

Anyway good news regarding the update, had a friend download it and it worked just fine although Sony changed the file as it was 3MB smaller then the one I had downloaded. I think the update was working fine on the newer PS3's and not the old 60 GB systems, that's why many were not having problems with the download. Just a theory anyone with a 60 GB PS3 download the update via PC before the 17th? Router is down trying to fix it to download MGO beta.

Just watched Cast Away on BD in DTS MA and what a disk. Demo material no doubt, one of the top 5 audio/ video presentations in HD. Highly Recommend it if you like the movie.

I have a 60 and have done both with updates, download to USB thumb drive, then copy to PS3, and direct download from PSN to PS3. Honestly, it sounds like the download got corrupted for some reason. Maybe has something to do with the fact that your router's down??

I have a 60Gb also and did not have any problems and I DL directly from my PS3 as I always forget to DL updates to my thumb drive...

Glad to hear you got it working though!!

Thanks guys I guess it was the router and not Sony. Should have figured that out, no way they would put up an update for download without trying it on one of four SKU's.
