Can someone tell me if this can be used too? i've made some picuters of it. if you zoom in u can see the details of the ATChip, its an ATMEGA 2560 + ATMEL MEGA 128 16MU0907. If this can be used too then i buy it and try this and let you know how it works.
Don't think so, as the mega 128 has a different page size. Still you could try it (edit: even though I can' take responsibility for whatever will happen).
I want to connect a 3.5 hard drive to the internet sata port in my ps3. I want to power this from a wall socket or something so that I can swap it between my desktop PC and the PS3.
I have multiple internal sata 3.5 hard drives and do not want to use a USB one.
So, where can I find a power cable for sata hard drives? I can't find them for some reason. I would appreciate any links if anyone knows where I can find this.
You can get a SATA/Power extension cable which should work (connect the male end inside the PS3 in place of a normal drive, connect your 3.5" drive to the female end of the extension) for $10-20. Then when you disconnect the drive it is just a bare drive, however, which increases the chance it will be damaged moving it and requires you connect it internally, so you'll have to open up your PC.
Another option would be to get a 3.5" external enclosure for ~$20-40 with ESATA support and a female SATA to ESATA cable (around $5-10) to connect from the PS3's internal header (and the back of the drive bay) to the external enclosure, then plug the enclosure in to the wall. Then you can just move the enclosure between your PS3 and PC, and leave the ESATA converter cable plugged in to the PS3.
Either of these options will require that the drive in question (which won't be in the PS3, as it can't fit, obviously) is connected to the PS3 for it to function, so they're not exactly ideal.
You're probably better off just buying a larger internal 2.5" drive for your system and using a separate USB drive to move things.
Did you put the backup manager file onto a separate USB drive to install?
Thank you that did the trick, backing up mw2 for further testing.. for other people that just starting today , make sure there are no other device hooked up to the other usb when loading your psgroove device.
