    [Answered] Copying a PS3 game to external usb help?


    I bought the last of us, and decided to back it up to my external usb drive connected to my PS3.

    However, the transfer is extremely slow. The estimated time remaining is 700 mins. It's at 7% since I started it about an hour ago.

    I am using multiman 4.46.01 and habib 4.46 2.05 if that's important to mention.

    It does take some time to back that game up because of how big it is. Thanks.

    That is very slow. I backed up 'The Last of us" to external hdd in less time than that.

    What brand and size of hdd is it?

    On an external Novatech caddie

    I tried to play the game, but it is incredibly slow, managed to get to the main menu, now its just stuck on loading, with the LED on the external drive flashing, so it seems its reading it very slow as well.

    Try software for testing speeds on direct HDD and when is on caddy this will exclude either this or this

    It's normal for the game to take a little time loading the first screen (I have it on internal) but all the rest should work normally ...

    Since both copying and playing the games took too much time ... maybe it's a problem with your HD ... does your caddy have it's own power source or does it takes it's power from USB only?

    You can run into slower transfer rates when you split any of the usb ports on the slim. There is only so much power to go around, lol. I would try to use a y cable possibly and using both usb ports in the front to power your caddies. Maybe even looking into using an external power supply for them as hilongo mentioned.
