Could be the video format, make sure the video format is play-able on the PS3 and make sure the hard disk is formatted to a FAT32 file system.

I only have a flat screen tv. i want to veiw movies on it. i do not have any sorce enabling to use net flix. i would like to down load movies to flask,thum ar external hard drive from a freind computo


You'll need a connection to the internet on the tv to get Netflix to work. It would be easier to use a dvd player. Some TV's only use the usb port to update the software inside the TV. If you can use it to watch movies, then you have to format the movie on the thumb drive to whatever is needed by the TV. Example: .avi or . mov files. You should have that information in your manual.

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.

Honedownloaded amovie to watch on my ps3 put it on my portable hard drive from my laptop to watch on the playstation 3 the film gets 3 mins in then comes up with chavia message code 1


Cinavia is an anti-piracy protection embedded into the PS3 and it triggered by some codes in the audio track of the movie.

You cant play Cinavia protected movies on the Playstation 3 native player.

However If your Ps3 is jail-broken you can use a homebrew player to play those movies.

Hi, my ps3 stopped playing ps3 games but it plays


It will most likely be the hard drive in your PS3 as your games most likely use the hard drive a lot - I would try if you can to take the hard drive out and try and backup the data if you can and then whilst its connected to your desktop run a check disc - you may need to purchase a new hard drive and transfer the data over.

how to replace the hard drive

As you can see plenty of guides especially on youtube for replacing the hard drive as for the recovery of the data before you wipe or erase or run a checkdisk on the hard drive you will need a data kit which you can obtain from your computer store or amazon

If the link does not work then go to amazon or a computer website and type in

usb to ide/sata

then click on search and it should pull up some results that are relevant

Will playstation 3 play blu ray movies off usb memory stick? all other movies worked but blu ray one didn't work.


the PlayStation 3 can read just about any usb memory stick and play can movies from them, since a usb's bandwidth is significantly lower then the ps3 hard drive it's recommend to copy the movie to the ps3's hard drive.

also it matters how the movie was converted. some converted movies wont play on the ps3 no matter what codec your using to encode the movie with.

Playstation 3 wont read some cds or play downloaded demos.


I'm also having this problem as well, it has to do with the OS and it is corrupted. It seems like the "Game mode" has been corrupted preventing us from playing games on the hard drive or reading games.
