How to watch DVD movies and videos on PS3?

Sony's new PS3 system with a 250GB hard drive hit store shelves on November 3. This PS3 250GB system has the same slim look, feel and features as the 120GB system, but with a 250GB built-in hard drive for $349.99. With a larger storage for more multimedia files than ever before, we’ll have even more room to save and play your digital videos on the PS3 anytime we like.

Here I'd like to share all of you an easy way to play DVD movies and videos on PS3. The way I use is to convert DVD movies and video to PS3 accepted MP4 video with a DVD and video conversion tool. I find a DVD and Video to PS3 Converter which is easy to use and works well for me. Here I make a step-by-step guide on how to play DVD movies and videos with this Wondershare DVD to PS3 and Video to PS3 Converter.


Step 1: Load DVD moives and videos

Frist, we need to download this DVD and Video to PS3 Converter, install and run it. Then we can select any DVD movies or video we want to play on PS3 and click “And Video” or “Load DVD” to add these files to the program.

Step 2: Select PS3 MP4 video

Then we elect PS3 video( in MP4 format) from the categorized output formats list in "Profile" drop-down list and specify the output directory to save your converted files in "Output" drop-down list.


Stpe 3: Start conversion

Next step is to hit "Convert" button, and all the selected videos will be converted to PS3 MP4 video automatically.

Step 4: Transfer converted PS3 video to your PS3

The last step is to transfer the converted PS3 MP4 video to PS3. Aftering connecting PS3 with computer, we can click "Copy to USB device" button to transfer videos to PS3.

Sony Playstation 3 (PS3) Console My PS3 hard disk is corrupted, It say to restore i put restore and nothing had been restored Bid


Corrupted hard disk? Lets see....

You could attempt to boot up the PS3 in safe mode and restore the file system (should delete any corrupted data). Describing how to start up your PS3 in safe mode would just be confusing, so instead here's a link to the official page on the PS3 Safe Mode feature.

Follow the instructions, and then I'd say try options 3 (Restore File System). If that doesn't work, try 4 or 5 (Rebuild Database or Restore PS3 System).

If that fails, you could just replace the hard drive. The PS3 uses standard 2.5inch SATA laptop/notebook hard drives (5400 or 7200 RPM). They can be found online at any computer parts website; for example, Tigerdirect.

If somehow the new hard drive doesn't fix it, or you don't feel like buying a new hard drive, you could send the PS3 back to Sony. If you're under warranty it's free; otherwise it's expensive (150$ I believe).

If you request the repair service, they send you a box, you put the PS3 in it and ship it back to them. A month or 2 later they send you a fixed/different PS3. Simple, but takes forever to get a working PS3 back which is why I suggest you try a new hard drive first.

Anyways, hope you get it working soon!

ps3 hard drive


New hard drive on the system what size hd do you have? I can get you a good deal on a sony hard drive, If you dont know how to pull the hard drive out check the manual it should show you. (go to an electronic store and tell them you want to upgrade your ps3 hd and they can guide you to 20gb hds to 250gb just for the ps3)
Let me know your progress, Should not be to much 60gb is about 50$ better then 150 via sony!
If you dont want to bother with it let me know I do purchase these systems and can get you a new/used one cheap!
