    Is you PS3 conected to the Internet? if so go to they system setings tab on the XMB and go to system update and update you firmware, that is the first thing you should do, it fixes bugs in the PS3 OS!

    Yes very complicated... I took me 18 hours to get it right, and I don't know how I managed to do it! That is god that you are hounest, if you want to pay $99 you can get the actual disk and istall it, that is probably alot easir!

    Okay, when I do go to set that up, I may be bugging you's for some help. I did most of it, like choose login name and password, and right near the end it said connection not detected. I will try again tomorrow nigth or something though.
