    Actually I have but for some reason it seemed to me, it wouldn't work. However I will try that. There is a 140MB image ready to be used with BD-J available here:

    I'll give it a try ASAP and will let you know.

    According to [Register or Login to view links] it should be supported out-of-the-box!!! Great idea! Thanx a lot Transient. I'll start testing ASAP.

    as doubtful as it may seem, that's how holes are left open for exploits.

    Progress information - using DVD-RW instead of BD-RE

    Sponsored Links
    I have started some preparations. It took some time to create and tweak to create DVD-RW with BR contents so that it is accepted by PS3 as AVCHD (or something like that). Here's summary:

    1) Took BR image from [Register or Login to view links]
    2) Added BD-J stuff available at the same site.
    3) Burnt the stuff as UDF 2.50 using Nero Linux (I am Linux user primarily and haven't yet found a way to do this from command line - I am still pretty lame in Linux).

    At this point PS3 was still seeing the disc as DATA (on attempts to play .m2ts file from it or copy the whole disk the PS3 hanged up). Started to look around what the reason could be. I found something similar here:

    The solution to similar issue is to replace Index.bdmv and Movieobject.bdmv with Nero ones available here:

    http://www.ps3news.com/forums/attach...chmentid=14569

    This made the disk accepted by PS3 however it only plays one of the videos (there are 3 or 4) and I couldn't get to any menu or get BD-J to start. However I think with some tweaking (probably those 2 .bdmv files need to be re-created somehow - have to read some stuff on BR authoring) I will get it running as BR disk. Any suggestions are welcome.

    Hey.. goood idea here. Did the BDMV work for your ?

    In Nero 8. There is an option to make BluRay DVD. Maybe you can try that and see if that works for you ?

    If one of your primary goals is to access the PS3's file system, have you considered just using custom PS2 code? While I do not own a PS2 game that utilizes the hard drive (to see how and where it places files and data) I do know that Final Fantasy XI is fully supported.

    This means that PS2 code can both access the hard drive in some fashion and also access the network (again I do not have the game to test this but that is what it says on the official bc support page). I have not bothered to try it, but it seems fairly easy to run custom PS2 code on the PS3 by either using the swap magic method described in the forums or the hardware switch method (if you want to use this method, make sure to be careful or you will burn out your laser).

    If the BD-J method works, it may have greater access to the file system but the PS2 method would not require a BD burner.

    ps2 additional file

    Kinda makes me wonder.. There was a file on the ps3 store that was an addon file to let you use the ps3 harddrive for ps2 games that use the hdd. Do you think that the file just converts the ps2 data so its compatible on the ps3 or do you think that it just creates a partition on the hdd?

    That would require me to know PS2 coding which I do not. However I am quite good with Java, reversing it, coding for it, etc... That's why BD-J is far more appealing to me.

    Not having the BR writer is a bit of issue but I started to look for ways to overcome this and I found one. One option is the DVD already discussed. There is another one: I only need one BR media which contains valid BD-J code that allows you to download some other BD-J code and run it. Such media are (even freely) available and I already signed up to receive one. If I do not get one for free I will just get the image and will have someone write one such BD-RE for me to start testing. So I hope I will get it up running soon.

    Jabber,

    can you tell me where to look for such option? I haven't found it there. There is an option to burn DVD disks, there is option BR disks, but not "BluRay DVD".

    RexVF5,

    Try this.. [Register or Login to view links]

    The format you are trying for is called BD9. Hopefully this will help.

    Also, for the option in Nero i think youneed the BD_TEST plugin enabled. Not sure how to get that anymore. As i cant see that option in my home computer too. I saw that option at my work comp where i had that plugin enabled at one time.

    GREAT, GREAT, GREAT!!! The image from the re works in PS3 and contains BluRay file structure. I will try to add BD-J code to see if that works.
