167w 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!

Not to overtake the topic, but couple of weeks ago when Comgenie released his Awsome Filemanager I created a small win32 application to do the PC side split. It doesn't require java or NET or anything. It supports both split naming conventions and I decided to share it anyway.
Here is the requested version of the split4G application. It now has additional drop-down-list option to select the split filename format:
Guys, I can't launch splitted files in internal drive? What I did. I copied a splitted game with a _blesxxxx into my external fat32 usb drive inside the root folder. I didnt put it in the GAMEZ folder. Then i plug my external into the ps3 and copied the game using comgenie awesome file manager into the openmanager 1.3 Gamez folder Oman46767 or something.
When I try to launch the game using Open manager 1.3, I can see its being greyed out, it says splitted files cant be launched. My question is..how can i merge splitted files? or does the open manger do it automatically during transfer?
I very much hope both are compatible. Once the splitting system was astablished by comgenie in his file manager, everyone else did it the same way to retain compatibility.

Ok, it seems the crash happens outside Java. So it's probably an issue of your hardware - something Java can't deal with, perhaps. You could report that crash to the link in your message, to help sun make Java better.
