I've followed the steps that tell you to download two large demos, and cancel one and yada yada yada... And now I'm not sure if I'm downloading the demo again (from PSN), or if it's 'downloading' it from my computer.
It's going at about 1MB/sec, which seems fast for my internet, but slow for my network... and I really don't want to be downloading another large demo from the net. (I have a limited download amount with my ISP).
Is there any way to be sure that I'm doing this right?
If you use sithvegeta's method, the first demo will download from the PSN (it should be large, to give you time to do the yada yada). You can know if it is downloading from your PC, if the size of the second demo (which should select one larger than the demo to be installed) is reported as the same size of the one on your PC while it is downloading.
For faster download, try configuring your PS3 network settings to use cable connection instead of wireless. In this case your PS3 should be connected to the router via the network cable. In my case, this changed increased the transfer from 1MB/s to 3MB/s.
Unfortunately, it WAS downloading from the internet... which probably means I didn't do the steps quick enough... I might try again later and see how I go.
Thanks aldostools for the trick.
From my 2.35 fw, I can tell it works like a charm
I dont get it. Can someone make a video on how to do it? thank you
i had the same problem with installing demos through the ps3.proxy, but now i found that the problem only occurs while trying to install on a new demo game link downloaded from the playstation network (eg haze), to fix this just start downloading a older demo (like R&C Tod) and than use the "replacing file" method via ps3.proxy.server, and that should fix your problem.
What I'm getting from this is, this process is used to backup your demo's onto your pc. Has anyone tried to take these demo's and transfer them to a flash drive to be stored also?
