So yeah, you either need to a FAT32 External HDD...or
Click start. Click RUN. Type CMD. Then type this. X: /FS:FAT32 then hit Enter. replace X with the letter of your external HDD. Depending on your Operating system, you may have to type in "format /FS:FAT32 X:" instead.
That won't work in all Windows versions if the partition is larger than 32GB. At least in 7 it will start and look like it's working but at the end it will laugh at you and say too bad. There are free alternatives out though like Easeus Partition Master. Unless you're running 64bit which isn't a feature of the free version but I just use it in a VM session and it works fine.
Anyway, my question is whether or not the Blu-Ray drive is accessible when using the FTP program. If not is that something that is possible to incorporate? Maybe have it mounted as part of the ftp startup. The terminology may be wrong but you get the idea.
Oh forget my previous question. I reread the readme and it states "• Full Read access to "dev_bdvd"" so I guess that answers that. I'm assuming that's the Blu-Ray drive.
Just a tip that I thought I would share with everyone, I decided to see if WinSCP (http://winscp.net/eng/index.php) would have an easier time communicating with the PS3 FTP server then Filezilla. After logon I have not once been disconnected by the server nor has the server frozen and had to be restarted. I have also transferred files to look at from my PS3 to my PC without any issues also. Not sure if anybody else would like to give this a shot if they are having issues with any other FTP Clients.
Can anyone please explain how to set up the PS3 to the PC through your lan?
I have a crossover cable but when i hook it up to my PC Its just says Unidentified Network therefore I cant get an IP Address to Work..
Can Anyone please Help on the steps to set it up if you have a crossover cable thanks...
The fastest way would be to just directly connect your PS3 to your computer. You PS3 and PC are auto sensing and don't need crossover cables to make a direct connection. Try this method and see if it works:
Connect PS3 and PC directly via Ethernet.
Make you PC static IP 10.1.1.1, subnet 255.255.255.0, gateway 10.1.1.0, dns 10.1.1.0
Make your PS3 static IP 10.1.1.2, same subnet, gateway, and dns as the PC. Make sure to enable UPnP.
I use FlashFXP for ftp and have it set up like this:
I think the payload that is used for the exploit is messing with these functions, cause after executing the exploit my 60 GB launch PS3 is not able to read ps2 disc's as they don't appear on the XMB, and all the memory card functions are gone. Of course they come back after a reboot if you don't execute the exploit again.
One of the things the patch does is change the file open from "category_game.xml" to "category_game_tool2.xml", causing it to read a different XMB configuration from flash (the one designed for the test kit that has the install package option). However, most likely this one doesn't include the PS2 features.
If you have write access to /dev_flash, you could probably modify the xml file to include both sets of options (although you run the risk of wrecking something I guess)...
It seems the ftp server locks up if you transfer a lot of small files with full speed. I just limited download speed to 500 kb/s and the server just downloaded a few thousand files without any problems.
I'm currently searching for a possibility to order the queue of Filezilla to get the small files first. This way i could download the small ones with limited speed and if Filezilla reaches the bigger ones i could deactivate the speed limit.
Like a few others here I was having problems getting past the "List" command in my FTP client. I was using my laptop directly connected to the PS3 via ethernet. I was also on the internet using my lappys built in WiFi.
After disabling the wifi adaptor in the Control Panel (NFI why I tried this!) my FTP client connected straight away.
