[Answered] Ps3 file transfer
i would like to know how to transfer games from external hard drive to the ps3's internal drive, (via direct connection i.e usb)
i've heard of ftp, but it takes a little longer.
FTP - A sort of bypass the 4GB limit . Example (HAWK 2[16GB])
External HDD (FAT32) - You only can transfer maximum of 4GB File at 1 go into your ext HDD...So if 1 files is more than 4GB and you cant split it, means you cant transfer it... So FTP is the only way to by pass it...
If you transfer by ext HDD, 1st create a folder call "GAMEZ" (w/o quotes) at your main folder and put your game folder into GAMEZ folder... The folder which you should transfer should be call "BLUS30488", the numbers will be different..
inside that folder, should have 2 more folder...PS3_GAME and PS3_UPDATE...If is inside, you have done it correctly...
By transfering by FTP:

and install the FTP.
Onces install, open the ftp program and start its service...You will see your IP and ports at the screen..
Back to your PC and download Filezilla
C:\Documents and Settings\nasukiz\My Documents\Downloads\Programs\FileZilla_126.96.36.199_win32-setup.exe
Open it and connect to your PS3
Login IP : Your PS3 LOCAL IP

Port : 21
Put your games folder into the below directory
Exit your FTP program, proof and you'r done
