You can only copy to a MP3
but to do that you need to connect it to the ps3 with the usb cord
and hopefully it can read it if it does then select all the music you want to transfer then select the "USB device" it should say then it should all be on there

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.

Hi i have a archos 18 vision and i can not get my ps3 to conect with it so i can down load music


Does the MP3 player charge when it is plugged into the system?
if not then you may need a different USB lead, if it DOES charge, it may be the case that the device is formatted in a way that prevents computers (or playstations etc.) accessing music without certain software. my personal solution for this was to put all of your music from your computer onto a USB stick and copy it over to the PS3. You can copy music from iTunes by selecting tracks and pressing CTRL+C, I believe the same applies in windows media player

How do i download music on my mp3 player?


Hi

Well it all depends on what you want to do. Do you want to take the music from a cd and put it on your Mp3 player, or do want to directly download music tracks from the internet on to your Mp3 player. If you want to get music from a cd onto your Mp3 player, you will first need copy your cd with windows media player or another cd playing software. You will need to change the format into "Mp3" format by "ripping" it. "Ripping" a CD is basically copying music to your computer.
After you have the files properly formatted on your hard drive, you can remove the drive from your mp3 player and plug it into a "usb" port on your computer. You then go to your hard drive, find the files you copied, making sure they are in the proper format,and then move them to the drive of your Mp3 player.

OK lets say you want to download music directly from the internet. You need to see if any special software is required to assist in the downloading process. Normally you wont need any. You just hook up your device to a "usb" port, go to your settings and look for "usb mode" or connect. With some devices you wont need to do anything, because they will automatically be detected as a removable hard drive.

Next you will need to find out where the files will be stored. Depending on which music download vendor you choose, some will allow you to buy one track at a time, if this is the case you can download one track and see where on your device the file was stored, and then proceed to buy further tracks and choose the same location to store them. If not, the files can be stored in different locations and the device will find them once you disconnect from the port.

Downloading music to your Mp3 player is easy and fun. Depending upon the capacity of your Mp3 players hard drive or flash drive you can store hundreds of music tracks, giving you hours of listening pleasure. Once you download music for the first time you will find out how easy it is. You can visit my web site, and choose from a variety of the top music download vendors, many offering free music.

Thanks.

HOw do I download music from my computer to my MP3 player


Hello

If there came any software CD's with the device, i would suggest that you install it, otherwize, just connect the mp3 player with your computer, go to my computer and your device should be listed.

Now just double click on the mp3 player and copy the music you want on the mp3 player to the music folder on the mp3 player, it should work now.

Best regards

Iv put some music of a cd on to my mp3 but it skips it why??


ok im sorry if this next part is ignorant of me but im just trying to eliminate all the posobilitys here, If you just copyed the music straight from the cd to the mp3 player it wont work, you have to convert the cd to mp3 format and then copy it to the mp3 player, second if you did do that make sure you put it in the devices music folder and not just to the root directory of the device you can use windows media player to do all this for you with no problems just open up windows media player and insert your cd, click on the rip tab and copy the music, after its done there will be a library tab open that and then connect your device, once its recognized by windows media player then from your library select the songs you just copyed and drag them to the sync bar on the right hand side of the screen once thats done then click on the sync button and there you go windows will handle the rest

Won't play songs


If you used Windows Media Player to copy the Cd's to your PC the default setting is to "copy protect my music". To change that go to Windows Media Player>Tools>Options>Rip Music and uncheck the "copy protect my music" box. You will need to delete the previously ripped music from your device. Then re-rip the Cd's and transfer them to your device. Best of Luck.

Downloading


I would assume that the music is copy-protected and that the device will refuse to play it because it can't go out to the internet to find a license. If you ripped the music from a CD in WMP, look for an option within WMP that says ''copy protect music'' and make sure it is NOT checked.
