We’ve been tipped off that there might be a small issue with the latest PlayStation 3 firmware, 3.56, which was pushed out to consoles yesterday. A number of users over on the EU community forums have signalled that the latest firmware has prevented them from changing the hard disk in their beloved black beast.
That’s all of the slimmer model units and many of the newer “phat” machines. Apparently, this is a recurrence of an issue that was first seen with an older firmware update which Sony were later able to fix so hopefully it won’t take them long to push out a quick fix for this one either. In the meantime, it might be best to leave that hdd upgrade until you hear more news.
