What exactly are you trying to get your PS3 to read from the USB stick??? Music??? Videos??? Firmware Update??? Please be more specific as it would be a lot easier to answer your question.

If you are trying to get music off of your USB stick, it will have to be in a folder labeled "Music"
If you are trying to get videos off of your USB stick, it will have to be in a folder labeled "Videos"

SOURCE: PS3 USB ports won't work

Yes I have, a known good one. I can connect to my laptop and the controller charges.

I bought a new controller that connects wirelessly via the USB port. When I plug in the USB adaptor, I get a green light briefly and then it goes out.

You have to go into the "photo" menu and then press triangle while on the usb drive and select display all and it should show yours pictures and/or folders containing pictures.

How do i turn on my ps3 rock candy wireless controller


After installing batteries in the controller and inserting the usb stick into your PS3, hold down the home button (the round middle most button with a house on it) for a few seconds until the light on the controller illuminates. This is your indicator your controller is paired with your PS3 and should be assignable and usable at this point.

How do you download pictures to your ps3 from the internet


Hello
Unfortunately at this moment in time it isnt possible to download pictures from the internet direct onto your PS3.
You can however download pictures on your PC or Laptop to a USD stick and transfer the pictures that way.
When you plug a USB Memory stick into your PS3 it should allow you to copy across to your PS3's harddrive.
Hope this helps

Laptop will not read some USB Memory Sticks


Is it the older one that doesnt read the thumb drives? If so I actually had the same issue with my laptop and the fix was really easy. First do you have more than 1 usb port on the laptop or multiple usb ports? Have you verified that its all the usb ports on the computer or just one in particular? I found that a build up of dust can immensely affect the way a usb port will work with certain devices. Make sure you dont need to do a quick cleaning. If all is clean then it may be neccesary to go to the website support of each thumbdrive and get drivers for them. It should tell you exactly how to load the drivers to the usb thumb drives.

I am unable to play dvds. The system starts with


Try other discs to see if the system is reading anything.

If it isn't then take a can of air and blow some into the drive to make sure there is no dust or dirt on the laser.

After that, try again and if the system isn't reading discs still then that means that the laser is bad. You can either replace the laser or the dvd drive itself.

Good evening, was seeing if yoou just ahve to hook the usb from my camera to the ps3 to download the photos or does it need to be programmed to do it? thanks


There is a chance if you hook it directly up to the PS3 it will work via USB. Otherwise you will need to take the memory card out of the camera and insert it into the PS3 (if it's a format it can read) or put it on your computer and put it on a Memory Stick Pro Duo for the PS3 to read.

Hope this helps!

Will playstation 3 play blu ray movies off usb memory stick? all other movies worked but blu ray one didn't work.


the PlayStation 3 can read just about any usb memory stick and play can movies from them, since a usb's bandwidth is significantly lower then the ps3 hard drive it's recommend to copy the movie to the ps3's hard drive.

also it matters how the movie was converted. some converted movies wont play on the ps3 no matter what codec your using to encode the movie with.
