Sorry guys! Run into some health issues so hadn't had a chance to get back with an update.
I re-installed the 3.41 firmware but that didn't appear to correct the problem. Should I update to 3.50 and then check to see if I can copy files to the PS3 from that firmware? That would at least eliminate the firmware possibility as the problem.
I can then downgrade back if necessary for jailbreak. I just want this issue resolved some way or another. I don't understand what's happening here from XMB. It's like a mystery or something. Let me know whether I should update to 3.50 to check and see if it still exist. Thanks!
After conversing with a few people from other forums, I was told that this shouldn't be a firmware issue. Others are claiming to be able to copy saves from flash drive with 3.41 so what good does it do to update to 3.50 anyhow?
It's like this PS3 is from outer space. My problem appears to be a very isolated one indeed. I know there are differences in the fat and slim PS3 models but this is ridiculous. Somebody has to know where the problem is with XMB on this console.
Sony has given me a bunch of bull for sure. It's always about copyrighted saves from them. These aren't copyrighted saves people. They're supposed to work. FTP doesn't work with them either though. Boy, my PS3 is a weirdo!
