168w ago - Here is OpenSplit v1.0 to split 4+GB files via PC for Open Manager on the PS3 followed shortly by version 1.1 which includes some bug fixes and version 1.2, and deanrr shared a similar app called Split4G which he detailed HERE.
This little tool lets you split the BIG files (bigger than 4GB) in your games on your PC, so that you can use them with Open Manager 1.0 for the ps3.
* How do I use it? *
- Press "Split BIG files to .666xx" in order to select a folder with your games. OpenSplit then will search the folder and all its subfolders for BIG files and split them according to Open Manager 1.0. All game folders that contained BIG files will be renamed accordingly. (example -> "BCESXXX" to "_BCESXXX")
- Press "Merge .666xx files to BIG" in order to select a folder with your games. OpenSplit then will search the folder and all its subfolders for .666xx files and merge them to BIG files. All game folders that contained .666xx files will be renamed accordingly. (example -> "_BCESXXX" to "BCESXXX")
- Check the checkbox "Don't delete splitted BIG / merged .666xx files" if you want to keep both BIG and .666xx files.
You can choose your whole GAMEZ directory, then all games will be processed.
I have attached the program to this post.
An important issue: PLEASE DON'T TRY TO MERGE .666xx FILES ON A FAT32 HDD! There files can't be bigger than 4 GB! You will only encounter errors!
Another issue: IF YOU START A SPLIT/MERGE PROCESS, ALWAYS WAIT UNTIL THE MESSAGE "All jobs done!" APPEARS IF YOU DON'T WANT ANY PROBLEMS!

I like your tool as it doesn't require Java or .Net. Can you also add the "Join" function? One time I accidentally split to file.#.part format and deleted the original files. Now OBM cannot combine them.
I'm really stuck and hope that someone might be able to help me, i've split COD4 with open manager on my windows 7 pc, then i copied the 7 folders. All with .66600 up to .66607, over to my Fat32 external hard drive. When i jail break my PS3 and open up open manager there are no files on my external hard drive so i am unable to copy them over to my PS3 can someone please tell me where i am going wrong.
this is so you dont have to ftp your games across from pc to PS3. some games like motorstorm2 only run from the internal hdd. uncharted to which has a pak22.psarc file needs to pe split up so you can put it with the split files on an external hdd and this game runs from the external drive and internal.
i dont know why some games only run from the intenal drive. but this tool helps those who dont want to ftp games across.
i am running psgoove 1.1 and OBM 1.13 and uncharted2 runs fine split up on my external hdd.
