    My PS3's Slow Start Up?

    My PS3 suddenly has a pretty slow start up. It takes a while for the user names to pop up and when I click my name it takes a while for the XMB to load. Once I get the XMB all is back to normal though. Does anyone know what the problem could be?

    PS3 80 GB 4 USB, PS3 80 GB 2 USB, Samsung 40'' LCD TV 1080p, XBOX 360 Pro, and Nintendo Wii.

    Perhaps a firmware update is required? Your PS3 is version 2.41 right?

    Sorry,I don't know what else could be wrong.

    I tried to update it from the internet and it said my PS3 is up to date. I'm just a little worried because it never did that in the past. This isn't really a major problem but something bad may happen in the future. =/

    same thing happened to me yesterday, tried logging in the my psn account, and it wouldnt show my friends list, then it would log me out. i had to keep turning it off until like the fifth time i did it, it worked, then fine from then on. Did **** me up though as i had clan matches lol.

    It could be your HDD or the PS3 looking for a network connection. Might be worth doing a backup>format>restore. This is just a thought though.

    I've looked the issue up on google and it seems to be becoming more common now. Only problem is that no one seems to know an answer for it.

    Nevermind the post above! The new firmware update fixed my issue!
    It said my HDD was corrupted and it fixed it. Now I still have all my saved data with the fast PS3 I use to have. I love you sony!
