Playstation 3 updating slow
First up, you’re going to need a USB flash drive with at least 168MB of free space on it.CECHA00/CECHB00 model PS3 owners can also use a Memory Stick, SD card, or Compact Flash to carry and apply the update.
Everyone knows how crappy download speeds on the PS4 are.Whatever storage method you use, you need to create a new folder on the drive called “PS3” and then download the new firmware to it.So, with Safe Mode activated and a controller plugged in, insert your flash drive and select option 6 “System Update.” Then press Select and Start at the same time to initiate the update from the USB stick.When connected via an ethernet cable that speed improved to just around 33mbps, which was better but still pretty substandard for 2017. (Before we blocked the IP, it would have taken several hours.) One thing to remember though: if you want to play games online, you'll have to re-whitelist the IP.When we blocked the IP address Lance used, well ... According to Mc Donald, the server was necessary for online play and it also hosts a lot of assets on the PSN store. And while Australians shouldn't have to resort to this kind of shenanigans just to get a console downloading at proper speeds in 2017, it's better than the rough 1mb/s we're typically accustomed to.
The console is still running fine and I can the frozen install at any time. I have tried deleting the game data and starting from the beginning with no luck. Note: Other materials, such as a paper towel or a T-shirt, may also scratch the Disc.
