USB Port Difficulty
Do any of you have any difficulty getting a good connection through your PS3 USB ports?

I'm not sure why, but I can only get a consistent connection through port #3 (counting from left to right), and intermitently from port 2. It feels and sounds like I get a good connection from the other two, but they wont recognize anything connected. I began noticing this when charging my controllers. Thank god the controllers don't need frequent charging.

Other than that minor issue my PS3 works flawlessly. I don't enjoy the idea of shipping my PS3 off for service, so I've lived with it okay. I was just curious if some of you have had similar experiences with your USB ports, or if you had any suggestions to help me fix this.

Nope, mine are fine.

Now that I think about it, I haven't used the other three ports, just the first one. Oh well.

Can't think of any way to fix it.

um, dust will cause it but it sounds like a ps3 issue. check the power cord and all that, and you will need to give sony a call.

trading in the ps3 is painless as long as you have something to back your stuff on and 3 weeks to be apart from it. i seriously would recommend swapping it for any sort of an issue.

if you got it from a shop, remove the harddrive and box it up, and get a new one.

If you complain enough they will let you keep it... I've heard few stories.
