I'm having the same issue with the latest version (3.4 official), that I was having with the redsquirrel87 version v3.3.312 and up.
Which is: videos do not play from external drive, it just tells me that the ram or the cpu is too slow, it shows nothing but a black screen with no sound, then the PS3 crashes and I have to restart it.
The latest release which is working for me is still: v3.3.307 (Dec 06, 2011) from redsquirrel
If any anyone is encountering this same issue, and somehow find a way to fix it. Please let me know.
I wonder if anyone can help me with a issue I've recently had with showtime. I had about 20gb of video files in the xmbvideo folder and never had an issue playing them. Yesterday, for some reason all my files mysteriously disappeared.
I transferred a single video file from my usb stick into the xmbvideo folder and played it. After playing the video, then exiting showtime I re-opened showtime and the same video I just finished playing was gone as well leaving me with a empty xmbvideo video folder.
I ftp'd into my ps3 and checked the folder thinking maybe the files are just being hidden, all my video files were gone. I did not mistankely delete any files whatsoever, they were just deleted for some reason. Has anyone had any experience with this?
