Can I transfer my iPod photos to my ps3 system? If so how? Ive done clicked on every thing tryin to figure it out so, before I give up, can any one pleeease help :)


There are many ways in which you can put media onto your PS3, and although this is not a definitive guide on every single possible way, I will outline the most common ways one may put media onto your ps3!

*NOTE*
Im using the new Firmware, 1.90. I suggest you upgrade as well for maximum flexibility, and for consistency in this article.

I think that before showing you how to put media onto your PS3, you need to know what kind of files it will play, as only certain files can be played!

Pictures:
-JPEG (DCF 2.0/Exif 2.21 compliant)
-TIFF
-BMP
-GIF
-PNG

Music:
-Memory Stick Audio Format(ATRAC)
-MP3(MPEG-1/2 Audio Layer 3)
-MP4(MPEG-4 AAC)
-WAVE(Linear PCM)

*NOTE ON MUSIC*
If you have licenced MP3s, or any other kind of restricted material, then it most likely not play using the PS3s music software.

Video:
-Memory Stick Video Format
-MPEG-4 SP (AAC LC)
-H.264/MPEG-4 AVC Main Profile (AAC LC)
-MPEG-1 (MPEG Audio Layer 2)
-MPEG-2 PS (MPEG2 Audio Layer 2, AAC LC, AC3(Dolby Digital), LPCM)
-MPEG-2 TS (MPEG2 Audio Layer 2)

----------
Copy using Device
----------
Now that you know what kind of files the PS3 will play, it is safe to put them onto the PS3s HDD!

Transfering using a CD(Using Files), Memory Stick, Flash Drive(USB), SD Card External HDD*, iPod*, which will all be referred to as 'device':

It is important to know that you must(well, not sure if its a MUST, but it works better this way) have folder corresponding to what media you are transfering. For example, im going to transfer two songs, two pics, and two videos. So, on the device im using, I would make three different folders: Music, Pictures, Video. Understand? Great.

Now, once you have copied the media(files), and placed them into their corresponding folders, you can insert the device into the PS3. Switching to the PS3s OS(operating system), you can copy the media to your ps3 pretty easily, and its the same for pictures, music, and video. For my example I will use an SD Card as the device used to copy media:


Using anything but an external HDD or iPod:
1. Using the PS3 controller, find the appropriate tab (Music, Video, Photo).
2. Press the Down key until the device is shown. My device is a SD Card, so I will highlight it.
3. Press the triangle Button once it is highlighted, and select display all.
4. Press the X Button on the corresponding folder(Video for Videos, etc).
5. If copying more than 1 file, press the triangle button and press the up arrow on the controller until you highlight the 'Copy Multiple.' Press X. Now you can choose which media you wish to copy, or you can copy everything by pressing the right arrow, and choosing 'Select All' then Ok.
6. Watch as your media is copied to the PS3!

Using an iPod:
1. Locate the white USB cord that came with your iPod. In case you were wondering, thats also probably how you charge your iPod too. smile.gif
2. Connect the iPod to the PS3 using the USB Cord. Yes, you can do this.
3. Highlight the iPod using the controller, press Triangle. Then highlight display all and hit X.
4. Select iPod Control, Select the appropriate folder (music, Video, Pics), Hit X.
5. Hit the Triangle Button again, and select copy multiple. See step 5 above.

Using an HDD:
Ok, I admit, Ive never used an external HDD to copy anything to my PS3. But if you have read the steps above, I can almost guarantee you will have to hit Triangle, Display All, and then find where you put the stuff. Its important to be organized, so you should probably just have a folder that contains all music, all video, and all pics, broken down however way you like it. The steps to copy the media should all be the same as above. smile.gif

----------
Copy using "Search for Media Servers"
----------

Ok, this is a bit more complicated. The only way I know how to do this is using windows, so for everyone using linux, "Lawl." Im sure there are more ways to do this, im just showing you the way I figured it out. You *MUST* have a router to do this, or be on the same network as your PS3.

For demonstration purposes, I will use music for my example. This will also work with pictures and video


1. Transfer all media to the My Documents folder, and put them into the correct folders.
2. Load up PS3.
3. Goto Windows Media Player 11(If you dont have it, DL it), Library, then Media Sharing. Select "Unknown Device" and hit allow. **DO NOT** 'Allow new devices and computers automatically.' This will let any computer connect to yours, and probably will allow them to upload some nasty Virus'
4. Go back to your PS3, and now under Video, Music, or Picture tab and now select the thing with the Windows Icon. *Note: if there are more than one, then select the computer you want to retrieve your media from, ie yours.
5. Select Music. Hit X. Hit down until you highlight Folders, hit X. Goto my Music. If you wish to copy the whole folder, hit triangle and select copy multiple, the select all and copy. If you wish to only copy a few songs, select the My Music folder, hit x, then triangle, then highlight the song and hit copy.

I have a ML640S and I want to know how to put music on it, I went to Playlist.com and I tried to put my 87 songs on there but it kept asking for a MP3 link what is that? And how do I put music on there? :)


MP3 players can only play music files in mp3 file format. You need to convert your CDs to mp3 music files onto yourcomputer or download them from the Internet and then copy them to your MP3player.
You can do this using Windows Media player and Rip the CDs - Media Player willcreate a MP3 music file for each music track.

How do i put music videos to my mp3 from limewire


if your device accepts videos, you have to make sure they are in the proper format for your player. Mp3 devices usually accept videos in .wma, .avi, etc..
you need to know what format(s) it will accept and then convert them. I recommend using media convert ( http//media-convert.com ). its online and free, so no software/viruses. upload your file, wait for the conversion, and download your file. I use it all the time for my iPod!
Best of luck!

Mp3


if it doesn't sync, don't worry just open the folder where the music files are stored on your computer, connect your Sony Walkman to your computer and highlight the music files you want to add to the Walkman and select (copy these files) a windows will open for you to select the place you want to copy to, select your mp3 player and click on copy to copy the selected music to your Walkman

NOTE: if you Sony Walkman has a specific folder for music files, you need to move the songs you copied from your hard drive's music folder to the music folder on your mp3 player for the player to recognize the songs in order to play.

How do you put music onto the samsung s5 mp3 player?


First you need to plug it in to the USB port, if you are running anything newer than windows 98 you won't need a driver. Double click on my computer and it shows up as a removable disc(usually drive letter f:), double click this drive to open it as folder. This folder will show you all directory's and files on your player, here you can delete any songs on your player by finding the file and deleteing it. From here you can also put your music onto the player by copying and pasting your music files from your hard drive. If you are not sure where your music is located you can run a search by clicking START>SEARCH>FOR FILES OR FOLDERS (if you are running XP click pictures music or video, check music then click search, each file will have it's location in small print below it's name, or you can right click each song and hit copy, then go back to f: drive and right click and hit paste, you can copy more than one). Hope this helps.

Samsung t629 memord card problem. PLEASE HELP!


ok, I have managed to use my sandisk 512mb card to put on music...even though I didnt know you had to format the disk in phone first (I dont recommend because all my music is individual clips and not in my music file), however once you see that the music is on the card via "my files" I went to the music player and hit options...then hit "add music from" then hit "memory card"...now you must put a check mark by all the music files you want to add to the music player (or choose "all" and hit ok) This will put your chosen songs off your card into the music player and you can see the song title at the top of your player screen and use the arrows to move through your songs/clips. Choose the song and hit play.

"Synch problem: Synchronise to continue your music subscription"


I would suggest formatting the unit and trying again, but this time do not sync it with media player. Plug it into your USB and got "My Computer", the player will show up as a removable disc usually drive f:, right click on the drive and hit format, quick format shoudl work. Once formated double click the removable disc drive, and then click and drag or copy and paste your music into this drive and see what happens. That player should support WMA files, but just to let you know, if you convert those files to MP3 it will take about half the space and therefot you can store more music at once.

Delstar 1GB MP4 with Music Player, Video Recorder and 1.3MP Camera


the way to download music on this device is complicated.
I only know how to put music on the mp4 player from itunes.

First, you plug in the usb cord to the back of your computer and to the mp4 player.

Next, you go to the start button and hit my computer.

Then, there should be something on the bottom right of the window saying "Removable Disk". hit that and a folder should say music.

If you use itunes then you copy paste songs into the folder.

If not, i'm not exactly sure how to do it. sorry.
