[Answered] Playing PS3 games from network or USB help?
So where do I find these tutorials for newbies like myself? I want to play my games off of a USB or network share since I have a 16 month old who likes to play with round, shiny discs. It seems God blessed me with someone who sold a 120GB Slim PS3 with two wireless controllers, five games and two BD movies for $100!
He claims he opened it to "fix something" but didn't say what. To play a BD I needed to do an update and I needed one originally for COD Black Ops too. I think the console was on a 3.xx something before but I updated it now to 4.20 to play the BD.
I ran the MinVerChk and it says 2.70 but I wonder if there's a way to find out if a chip was installed in mine without opening it? I read about the chip on eHow and I was looking for a tutorial about what CFW means (maybe custom firmware?) and whatnot. I want to play backup games, if possible over my network but USB could be a viable option, play 3D content (a must) and why is there no Pandora option like the Sony SMP-N200?
We love the media player, easy to use and has 3D which is rare for a network media player with tons of options and playback formats but the PS3 lacks a Pandora app and the browser sucks because they won't upgrade the flash version.
If it was a e3 chip you could tell because it would be poking out under the blueray drive , but I doubt there is a chip... Sad to say, but you updating the firmware to 4.20 has taken away your chance to play from a HDD/USB. You have to downagrade to atleast 3.55. But to do this, you need a chip (E3 flasher or progskeet)
