I just got a fat PS3 (40GB) from a friend, but It wont read any games. I looked into that and read the ps3 recovery menu could possibly fix this. So my problem is, I have a firmware from before the recovery menu was implemented, But id like to stay below 3.21 for linux. Is there any way I can upgrade to a specific firmware without getting the newest one? Also, a PS3 noob question: Would the newest firmware kill my backward compatibility?(If I even have it) Any help would be appreciated. Edit: Upgraded to 3.15 via USB. Tried the recovery menu, Still wont read discs.
