Question about Sony Playstation 3 (PS3) Console

1 Answer

Playstion 3, Windows XP Networking

What do I have to do to enable my Sony Playstation 3 to be able to see and access my music and photo files on my Windows XP Home computer. I have an ethernet cable connected between them, but the Playstation 3 says it cannot find the "Media Server".

    Thanks for your reply. I had already gone through that page and tried all of it.



    I now have it working, and found that it was another VPN application I had running.



    To fix the problem, I had to disable the security policy on my "Checkpoint VPN Secure Client" application.

How to put movies on ps3 harddrive?


Hi skillet3716,

Format a USB drive as FAT32 file system (NTFS will not work with PS3), create a folder called "VIDEO" (without "s), put the video in there.
name new folders "PICTURE" and "MUSIC" for those types of files as well.

The PS3 will also allow you to access a variety of media file formats from the video, music and photo menus of the Cross Media Bar.

VIDEO
# MPEG-1
# MPEG-2 (PS,TS)
# H.264/MEPG-4 AVC
# MPEG-4 SP

MUSIC
# ATRAC (.oma .msa .aa3)
# AAC (.3gp .mp4)
# MP3 (.mp3)
# WAV (.wav)

IMAGES
# JPEG
# GIF
# PNG
# TIFF
# BMP

Regards
R.K.

I get dns error 80710102 and im using wireless i have a 80gb


If you're using a router make sure you've got the latest firmware.

Also make sure you have PNP enabled on the router.

If you don't know what I'm talking about please refer to the router's tech support site on how to access your particular router. They're not all the same.

I have a 100g usb hard drive that i have my music on.. i was wondering how to connect it to my ps3 like a flash drive does?


here you go


Connect the hard drive to your computer using a USB cord.

Check what the "File System" type is by going to Start, Control Panel, Administrative Tools, Computer Management, Disk Manager. Select the external drive and read the "File System" type. The file system type must be "FAT32" in order for the Playstation to recognize it.

If the file system type is "NTFS", right click and select "Delete Partition" or "Delete Volume" for Vista.

then recreate the partition but do NOT format it. Make sure you assign a drive letter (for this Tutorial, we'll use h:)

If you are running Windows, format the drive by going to the command prompt (Vista, right click on command prompt in start menu and click "run as administrator")and type in "format h: /FS:FAT32" (without the quotes). You may need to substitute your drive letter. (note this might not work on XP for a large hard drive - you may have to use a third-party formatting utility like SwissKnife; however, it does work under Vista - just be sure to use the format command from the DOS prompt, not from Windows Explorer)

If you are using Mac OS X, open /Applications/Utilities/Disk Utility.app, pick the drive, and click on the 'Erase' tab. Pick 'MS-DOS (FAT)' for the file system type, and click on the 'Erase' button. This will reformat the drive in FAT-32.

Open "My Computer" and double-click on your empty external hard drive.

Create a folder system identical to that on the Playstation 3 by creating folders labelled "Picture" (not Photo), "Music", "Video" and "Game".

Load all the music you want into your music folder, all the video you want into your video folder, and all the photos you want into your picture folder. Your game folder should still be empty.

Disconnect the hard drive by clicking the green arrow in the icon list and the bottom right hand corner of the screen and select "Safely remove..."

Once your computer tells you "XXX drive can now be safely removed", unplug the hard drive from your computer.

Connect the hard drive to your Playstation 3 and use the extra space to save information and access all your extra content saved on your external hard drive

Hi there,

You will need a ethernet cable, this can be done aswell through wireless, all you have to do is install windows media player 11 or above, then search for media servers on your ps3 and the ps3 will find it, voila,,, any photos,videos,music etc..... can now be accessed through your ps3, if not wireless connect ethernet cable to your ps3 or modem/router for online gaming but not for accessing your pc files.
