Hi van derb
You would need to convert MOV file into a format which PS3 understands.
This can easily be done with a simple conversion tool such as the 3herosoft PS3 Video Converter.
1) Download and install 3herosoft PS3 Video Converter. Once installation has completed, launch the program. Step
2 ) Click "File" and then "Add" from the top menu of the 3herosoft PS3 Video Converter program. Browse to the folder and location of your MOV file. Select the file that you want to convert to PS3 format and click "Open." Once selecting the file, it will be added to the conversion list. Step
3) Edit the file as desired. Modify fields under "General" in the upper left-hand corner of the program window. Changes can be made to video size, duration, frame rate, buffer size and more. Step
4) Click "Convert" button (red circle) to convert the MOV file into PS3 format. Locate the converted file and transfer it to your PS3 for playback.
You can download this software from following link. http://download.cnet.com/3herosoft-PS3-Video-Converter/3000-2194_4-10909133.html

Is there any tools that can help me convert HD MOV files from Canon 550D for Sony Vegas?


I use Pro9 as well. My 550D files playSMOOTH on my computer (Intel Core i7 920 2.67Ghz 12G Ram) but I still transcodethem to Sony Vegas preferred WMV video format because I often do some editingon-the-go. And the video converting software I use is Pavtube HD Video Converterwhich works well in my 550D clips.When you transcode those filesunfortunately disk space increases quite a bit...That's why I keep the 550DONLY for "creative & beauty" shots. And the output WMV is playedand edited quite smoothly and efficiently.Hope this helps.http://www.pavtube.com/hd-video-converter/

Cannot see pc MOV or JPG files on flash drive in Canon SX230


Thanks very much for responding to my problem.
It seems Canon will not allow edited pictures or video to transfer from PC to their digital cameras for viewing.
steps to my problem:1. my canon SX230 created all the parts for my WMV video in MOV format originally.
2. created a movie (WMV format) in Windows Live Movie Maker. Works well and plays on my PC (windows 7).
3. after WMV completed - converted to HD MOV format in 2 different file convert programs and with 2 different HD MOV resolution settings on Both programs. WMV resolution is 1920x1080 (HD). ALL 4 MOV videos play well on my PC in 2 different programs.

Steps getting Canon to see video in playback mode.1. copy MOV video from PC to Flash drive in my card reader in same folder as my original JPG & MOV files, then inserted into camera - does not recognize file.
2. copy MOV file from PC to camera with USB cable. Windows error message. Wrong format - would not copy.
3. Formatted flash drive in camera. Took picture to create DCIM folder, JPG image, and CANONMSC folder with M0104.CTG file .Deleted CANONMSC folder. Copied my MOV video from PC to camera (USB cable). this time copy successful. However camera does nor recognize file.
5. tried again except deleted M0104.CTG file but not the CANONMSC folder. no luck.
It seems Canon will not recognize any file that has not originated in the camera AND has not been altered. Upon researching answers on the NET - many other users of Canon cameras have the same problem with no luck.
