PSN Download Manager 3.97 is Now Ad-Free with Improved Code


145w ago - Today I have released PSN Download Manager 3.97 which is now ad-free and features improved code among the changes outlined below.

Download: PSN Download Manager 3.97 (Under products, PlayStation Download Manager or link on homepage)

The PlayStation Download Manager 3.97 has been released with something you've all been wanting

It no longer displays the annoying advert however for anyone copying this, please don't hotlink or post as attachments. Use the provided adf.ly link as this help's fund web hosting and cover the cost of resource's like bandwidth which is costly in the UK (Rural Areas).

The issue with the application not starting has also been resolved, and seemed to be people missing the latest, Java, .NET and IE.
so make sure you've got the latest versions or follow the troubleshooting instructions; this should run better than older versions

1) The advertisement shown on start-up has been removed
2) The premium membership has been discontinued as it serves no purpose any more (It's ad free)
3) Further improvement to the code as the premium account check has been removed
4) Adjustments to the threading to prevent the application from freezing when checking for new versions (Very rare glitch)
5) Definitely working on firmware 3.66 (Older PS Download Managers may not due to changes in the PSN)

Have a good day,

PS: blazr, you need the latest version from our official site linked above.. and it can install PKG file's without any errors

downloads the files to your computer...?

Yep I've got a bad internet connection, so I just go on the Playstation Store load up all the content I want downloaded and then pause it; take my portable hard drive into College and download it in about 20 minutes while doing some work :S (Naughty, but come on; My internets been down all day, and it's slow when it works.)

Ah, the proxy doesn't support standard web requests as it's built to capture playstation content and will crash if you try the internet browser.

As for the Madden 11 Demo, it is normal for it to say "Please Wait" just back out of the menu and feel free to use the console until the download has finished on the computer; I like being able to play another game while somethings are downloading, unlike the standard ps3 downloader which stops when your in a game.

As for the 12 Minutes to download it, could specify your connection speed and the file size as your segments might not be configured for full speed.

1 and 1/2 minutes to transfer to the PS3 is about normal, and even faster If you connect it to a PC and use ICS (Internet Connection Sharing) but it requires 2 ethernet ports. (1Gbps which is about 15 - 20 seconds for a 1 Gigabyte File)

Sorry about not being able to use the Internet Browser on the console when the proxy is enabled, I've developed a skill which allows me to quickly enter network settings and turn the proxy on & off when needed in about 10 seconds.

P.S Should something crash the proxy or are not sure right click on the bar containing the total download rate, and choose "Reboot Server" you shouldn't loose connection to PSN also click just above it in the segments area and you'll get access to options such as a scheduler, maximum segments and min segment size + some more

[EXPERIMENTAL SETTINGS]
Set the Minimum Segment Size = 1024000
Set the Maximum Number of Segments = 4096 (4 Gigabytes, could be more)
Set Retry Delay = 10
Set Max Retries as Infinite = 0

This maxed my line out to the point I couldn't even browse google, it sucked every drop of internet available, but has massive speed spikes and a massive speed drop for about 10 seconds of the download towards the end and then speeds back up again.

250 Megabytes in 6 Minutes 40 Seconds on a 5Mbps connection, which is about right

jordan it still keeps giving me the proxy error. this is a clean instal, i started with 3.57, started it, it ran fine the very 1st time i used it. I was checking to see if u could use the internet on the ps3 and that is when the proxy error happens. so then i updated to 3.62. works fine until u try to pull up the internet.

also just tried to dl madden 11 demo, all it does is sit there saying please wait. then i tried madden 10 it starts and i can see it listed in my download manager but it also keeps saying please wait. ok i see the percentage going up on the puter but it still takes about 12 minutes to dl it to the puter and then anther minute and a half to transfer back to ps3.

Hi, Phantom1999.

Are you running proxy.exe? If so don't, start it with PSN DM.exe as the port might already be in use and PSN DM.exe will correct this for you.

Otherwise try a clean install, did you change any files? Let me know if this helps

I'll try my best to sort this for you

Below is some sourcecode for developing an extension app, Use it to create something useful, like an automated game update downloader which downloads the updates for games, ready for when you go online and need to update quickly.

I tried to develop something like above, however couldn't provide enough bandwidth to give decent speeds, for distributing url's to the game patches and alerting clients that an update needs to be downloaded; also the structure wasn't very stable and hopefully someone can make something more useful for the Download Manager.
