That is enabled on the X-Box 360, but with the PS3's settings, their is No way to play music while playing a video game on the console. If you want, just go to or And install one of those. It is a free Legal music downloading Program. If you don't feel like downloading them, just go to And stream. Only thing is the I-Pod, if you need that, just plug it in to your computer and either. A) Listen through Headphones or B) Listen through I-Tunes. Hope this helped.

SOURCE: My PS3 now will not play PS3 games but still plays PS2 games

You're blu-ray drive has partially died. It's a three part laser (cd, dvd, blu-ray). The most important part of yours has died that's why you can still play dvd and PS2 games because they use the dvd laser and not the blu-ray.

I have recently purchased a ps3. I have played games on it, I would like to learn how toi use the other sections like the photos. Is there an instruction manual that would help?

All you need is the USB adapter for any device that you would like to connect to your ps3. A camera can be connected (using its normal USB cord for a computer) to the PS3. Then you just go to the option of devices and it can sync to the PS3 no problem. You can upload the photos there; you can also upload music from an mp3 player or ipod to the music folder by connecting the mp3 player/ ipod to the PS3. Hope this helps.

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.

Will not save music once we put a CD in.

I want to say that this feature is through the game and not the actual playstation. The only game I've been able to add my own music to is MLB 09.
