My problem is my own making so its very embaressing saying this, My USB ports stopped working when I decided to open my good fully working PS3 in the hope I could extend its life if I cleaned out the dust that collect inside making it very loud (could easily get mistaken for a XBox 360!!) I did this knowing it was still under warranty, I did not send it away for repair as I felt they may replace it with that dreadful thing called PS3 Slim!!!, Any way I was going to leave it was, as I could always get a Nas drive and access my precious media thru the ethernet connection, but for some reason I listened to the devil inside me and went against wisdom and done a System Settings Restore, which resulted in The Sony Welcome Logo being displayed, it then (dont laugh here) it asked me to connect the PS3 controller using the USB lead and press the PS button (it would have been okay if the USB posts were now reset and fixed as mentioned in another post) but my luck as usual this did not happen as USB still did not work, my PS3 is now a brick, it will now always flash that annoying message asking for the PS3 controller be connected via USB cable to USB which are not working!!!!! i can hear the song, if I wish I can turn back time..I would...but I sure cant....so sad I like the orignal PS3 now im gona end with a Xbox360 because I dont think i can get into bed with a PS3 slim!!!!!! thanks for the post but I am still looking for a the mirracle cure for my problem!!!!
