    hi guys
    not sure if this is the proper section...
    but been having an issue with my gf's PlayStation 3
    We received it from her cousin awhile back
    it had a malfunctioning hard drive
    so I had found a spare I had for awhile and it was hardly used
    I formatted the hdd and placed it into the ps3 replacing the failed hdd
    when I tried updating the firmware to 441 it doesn't access the USB
    so just recently I decided again with the latest OFW hoping that will help but nothing
    I've done the usual 0:/PS3/UPDATE few times carefully in 4 sd-cards, micro-sd, 2 PSPs, and as well 3 usb flashdrives all in FAT32
    I dunno I think the system is completely faulty, I can access the recovery menu as well but it also doesn't read any of the storage medias there
    I've heard of the disc method but at the moment I'm not gonna waste the last DVD I have
    so I came here for help first and thanks who ever helps
