Welcome to the forums jhalifax. Hope you find some answers here.
We do have a policy here not to post the same question in different forums. It is called crossposting, and causes confusion on where to answer you. Therefore, I am going to close this thread.
Your other thread was in Gen. Hardware, but I've moved it to the Console forum, where questions about PS3's really belong. If anyone has some answers for jhalifax, please post them in that location, which can be found by clicking this link: http://club.myce.com/f98/playstation-3-a-317838/
Sorry for any confusion on where to post, but this should have things settled.
