From the included Version 2.0 - March 23, 2011 changelog, to quote:

  • Added an internal "retry system" designed to reduce failed transfers for small files
  • New git for v2.0 and later: [Register or Login to view links]

General Usage Tutorial : Just a small tutorial on the basics.

Prerequisites:

  • Custom Firmware (tested on 3.55, but should work for all)
  • A network connection

Installation:

  • Extract the pkg files from the archive and copy them into a USB drive
  • Connect the USB drive to your console and select the pkg file under the "Install Package Files" menu (found under Game)

    Note: The pkg file that you select should correspond to the custom firmware you are using. For example: if you have installed geohot's 3.55 jailbreak, use the file "openps3ftp.geohot.pkg". If not, use "openps3ftp.pkg". Users of CFW 3.55 kmeaw can use any pkg.

  • OpenPS3FTP is now installed!

Usage:

  • Launch OpenPS3FTP (found under Network)
  • Wait until you see text on the screen.
  • Connect to your console using an FTP client (such as FileZilla) with the IP address and port shown on the screen with user root and password openbox.
  • Now that you're connected, you can browse through and manipulate files on your console as if it were a folder on your computer.

ok so you're saying, just to be 100% clear, your WD caviar blue hard disk is either reading or writing at 2.4Gb/s (or 300MB/s).

That's pretty funny

No I don't think my drive runs at 3.0Gb/s, thats what it says on the drive, nor did I say it did, its 2.4 Gb/s like I posted before,And m8 LOL you have nothing to explain to me, I can see in all your posts you've made in the last two months, you have nothing to offer. And now your saying.

"I said around the 25MB mark because thats about normal". Ow so you didn't know this from your own test then? Its the norm you say, well it's not the norm, then you say its the Ethernet thats the bottleneck, so what is it? the drives. the network, or the PS3, or just the norm? Come on please explain to me which one is it now? End Of!

I said around the 25MB mark because thats about normal, if you get more go you. but i've given up trying to explain hard drive speeds to you. you just carry on thinking your hard drive runs at 3Gb/s and its the gigabit ethernet that's the bottleneck lol

No1 I never said I was trying to fill that gap in your pipe, you said it was down to slow hard drives.
Even with a 30cm cat6 crossover cable direct from the PS3 to the PC you'll never get close to 800Mbit/s (100MB/s) you'll tap out in around the 25MB/s (200Mbit/s) mark, maybe a little higher maybe a little lower, normal hard drives just dont work that fast, and the ps3's is particularly slow no matter what type of drive you have inside it.

So I am saying your wrong, and its getting boring now.were are you getting 25MB/s max from, thats slow as fooook and, and please don't tell me I am not getting 63MB/s, on my setup or tell me that, you can not get the speeds I'm saying when I have done this many a time. 63MB/s is 504Mbps, which is actually 1/2 the size to fit in that Pipe on my PS3 1000 base T network card.

Generally 60-70MB/s is what you get on Gbit normally , and I have done for a year or two now, since I had the kit to make the loads and so on.

Barry M8 it's you that don't get it!!!

no the sata connector on the end of your drive is capable of 3Gb/s thats not the actual throughput of the read write heads!, that's irrelevant when you look at the read write speeds of a mechanical drive. you're really not getting this are you, that hard drive will never fill a 3Gb/s pipe.

"Average read and write results of 74.5MB/sec and 48.1MB/sec place the 500GB Caviar Blue near the bottom of our benchmark table" -- Taken from pcpro.co.uk/reviews/hard-disks/252141/western-digital-caviar-blue-500gb

And those results aren't bad for a mechanical hard disc, the things were designed in the 80's and haven't really changed since. Your 63MB/s transfer speed might be right i'm not argueing i'm just saying it's nowhere near 100MB/s or the equivelent 800Mbit speeds you originally stated
