PS3 Not Reading Phone Or USB Drives
 

 
When i first got my ps3 it would read from the usb ports fine, i could connect my phone and my phone would show up as a mass storage device or a card reader with a microsd card and it would read from those fine as well i would have everything working, but after a few updates it seems to have stopped working. The usb ports work fine because they charge my controllers and work my ps3 eye camera, and it charges my phone but its not detecting my phone as a usb device or a card reader as a usb device any more

anybody else experiencing this issue ? has there been a fix for this? the only way i can put media on my ps3 now is if i stream it from my laptop

From what i've heard the 3.56 update disables the USB ports from picking up non Sony devices to prevent piracy. U might wanna follow up on it cause i'm not totally sure.

I used a Sandisk 4GB thumbdrive to watch Tron Legacy last night with no problems at all.

My OG 60 gig PS3 in my college apartment is looking more valuable every day.
Too bad its in a different city. This may be sufficient reason to travel and get it though. I didn't know it could read usb drivers and phones. I would have been all up on that s**t so long ago!

i used to charge my phone with the ps3 all the time but it never read the files, but it would say storage device detected. just tested my flash drive though and it works fine so idk what you guys are talking about.

ive had this same problem, and its on and off with my usb... since the new update it works when it wants too... so I think the 3.56 is trying to prevent the system from uploading from outside hard-drive
