I don't know why, but my PS3 returns nothing but Client Error or Compute Error on all the WUs it downloads:

My PS3 has been doing Distributed.net projects about a year now with absolutely no problems.

I think you are using the wrong Boinc Client. There is a specific Boinc Client for the PS3.

Go to the 'Home' page. Scroll down, look for the 'Click on your system and follow the instructions..'

The PS3 page has the full client, and instructions.

Experience is a wonderful thing: it enables you to recognize a mistake every time you repeat it.

I followed the instructions on this website to the letter. The PS3 is back to work for distributed.net.

How dare you to think your playstation is valuable and actually deserves to help science. You must help debug this buggy amateur folding@home wannabe of a project and waste your money (on electricty) and time and folding credits on a project that seems to have little chance of actually doing anything worthwhile. How dare you sir! Us voluteers (ie suckers) should just be greatful when the stars align perfectly and we actually complete and get credit for a workunit.
