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.

Trying to connect ipod to ps3 and keep getting error code 80110108


If you are trying to play your music on ipod to the PS3, you will need to use a USB flash drive (format to FAT32) copy your music to the flash from your computer and then plug in the flash drive into the PS3. From there you can play your music.

Hi i get an error code of 8001050f when i go to play my video games can you tell me how to fix it so i can play my games


go to the play stations web site to find out what the code means.

if your ps3 has a message of trophy registration error sony will say you need to turn in your ps3 for service this is not true i fixed mine by saving my game data on a thumbstick then deleted the game save data shut off my ps3 then turned the main power (the switch in the back) off for a few minutes to allow the power to dissipate. Then i restarted the ps3 copied my game save data back and my COD modern warfare 2 played like a champ!
i did lose all of my trophies but the game saved data allowed for 12 percent of them to come back apon completing one special op mission.

What to do when the ps3 shows "invalid format"?


For games, it means you inserted a unsupported disc. This is usually the case when say, inserting a xbox game into the PS3, or when trying to play a copied game.

For videos or music files, the format is not readable by the PS3. In this case, you should convert to something that is supported.

Playstation 3 + ipod


Hey JodGamer,

Two of the most likely reasons why this may be occurring would be if the files you are attempting to play are in formats that the PS3 does not currently recognize, or if they are "locked" by iTunes' DRM protection. Unfortunately, until Sony or another third-party developer chooses to provide support for such files, you may not be able to play them through your PS3.

Please keep in mind that DRM protection generally only applies to files that were purchased and downloaded through a music service, such as iTunes. iTunes Plus files however, do not normally carry DRM protection. As such, they should be able to be played by any MP3-complaint device, much like songs copied directly from a CD.

Hope this helps you out.

Sincerely,
Aaron
