    do you have the very latest dashboard update m8? if so then you should be able to select your storage device form the dashboard and you should be able to scan through all the files until you get to the downloaded films.



    if you dont have the latest update you can download from www.xbox.com or just put in a new game and it should update auto.

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 how do i connect my external hard drive to my ps3 and watch films


Step 1. Connect your storage device (I usually use a pen drive) to your computer

Step 2. Copy Movie to the storage device

Step 3. Eject storage device and connect to your ps3 via the USB port.

Step 4. under videos an option of your storage device should be there but do not choose X button instead press triangle for options, then select display all.

Step 6. Locate your movie and select it using X button.

Step 7. Enjoy the movie!!!! This works with MOST movie files, you may find problems watching some movie because of the way they were encoded.

Step 8. Done.

Good Luck

I cant figure out how to update my xbox just to where i can watch movies off of the jump drive / flash drive


You must have a live account and access to the internet. Put the flash drive in the 360, turn it on, go to video library, select the movie you are trying to watch. If it is a supported format is will ask you to download the media optional update (supports most avi, xvid, etc formats).

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
