    Best Answer - Posted by HeyManHRU:

    Following up on what moja said, make sure all the folder names are in "CAPITALS". The first time I tried updating my PS3 from a USB flash drive it took me ages until I read that it all the folders had to be in capitals.

    You can just burn the folder "ps3" containing the update folder and file to a dvd/cd and the console will check the Blu ray drive for the update file also.

    You should just bite the bullet and buy a new usb stick. I'm not sure about other countries, but here a 1gb flash is very cheap now.

    Did you try updating from the recovery menu or just the Update option in the XMB?

    I think if you try the recovery option it will search for all media options including the DVD/CD.

    I've found some USB drives do not work while others do.
