PS3 Firmware 3.41 causing HDD problems

UPDATE: Gamers complaining they can't upgrade

UPDATE: Sony has issued a response to the claims, and offered advice to those looking to upgrade their HDD after downloading the new Firmware.

The latest PlayStation 3 Firmware upgrade is reportedly causing issues for users attempting to upgrade their hard drive.

PS3 users have informed CVG that they are also having difficulty updating their system to Firmware 3.41, and even experiencing system crashes.

The few that have managed to install a new HDD are greeted with an error stating that 'no applicable data' can be found.

The latest firmware was initially thought to contain just a "You May Like" section, however we later learned that the firmware may have introduced a new patching system.
