3ds updating please wait
I'll try to explain everything as thoroughly as possible.
I was given a Playstation 3 slim by a friend of mine.
I'm also more interested in Playstation Vita stuff so I wanted the console to be on the recent firmware. The update was stuck on 99%, so I put the latest firmware version on a USB drive (with the correct folder structure and formatted to FAT32, yes). So I took the drive out, formatted it on PC and reinserted it, hoping it would reinstall the firmware this time. In safe mode as well, it hangs on the "Checking, please wait" screen.Using this console again is like being in the dark ages, everything is so damn slow, accessing the store, selecting downloads, it's all awful.Gladly though 11gb only took me a little over an hour so at least their download service is good but then again no one is on the network so you would expect fast downloads lol.My flash drive's lights flicker, so it does try to access it, but after a while it stops and it just hangs.I have tried swapping the Toshiba internal drive with a totally new one, with a Samsung EVO SSD, it doesn't change a thing.Hi everyone I've been trying to fix this issue for a year now, with no luck.I've lost track of how many Google searches I've done.It's frustrating to have 0 visible hardware defects and still have it fail.While automatically updating Windows 8, for the past 30 hours the message "please wait" has appeared on the screen and I can't get it to do anything.For some reason everyone recommends the right most usb port when attempting to update via flash drive.I guess one other thing you could try to do is, if you have the money, buy an E3, backup your consoles NOR and try to update it that way?
