Solution:

  • Remove and re-insert the external storage device and attempt the operation again.
  • Check that the connection between the external storage device and the PS3 system is secure and that any connecting cables are not damaged.
  • If the problem persists, try transferring data from a PC to the external storage device to ensure that it is functioning correctly. If your PC is also unable to write to the external storage device, the device may need to be replaced.
