Anyway, my question is whether or not the Blu-Ray drive is accessible when using the FTP program. If not is that something that is possible to incorporate? Maybe have it mounted as part of the ftp startup. The terminology may be wrong but you get the idea.
Oh forget my previous question. I reread the readme and it states "• Full Read access to "dev_bdvd"" so I guess that answers that. I'm assuming that's the Blu-Ray drive.
what files do i need to move to take backed up games from the internal HDD to move them to a HDD on my computer?
only limited room on my internal drive and this will let me swap and change backed up games (hopefully)
Just a tip that I thought I would share with everyone, I decided to see if WinSCP (http://winscp.net/eng/index.php) would have an easier time communicating with the PS3 FTP server then Filezilla. After logon I have not once been disconnected by the server nor has the server frozen and had to be restarted. I have also transferred files to look at from my PS3 to my PC without any issues also. Not sure if anybody else would like to give this a shot if they are having issues with any other FTP Clients.
Connect PS3 and PC directly via Ethernet.
Make you PC static IP 10.1.1.1, subnet 255.255.255.0, gateway 10.1.1.0, dns 10.1.1.0
Make your PS3 static IP 10.1.1.2, same subnet, gateway, and dns as the PC. Make sure to enable UPnP.
I use FlashFXP for ftp and have it set up like this:
Make sure passive is not checked, it runs much faster. I'm getting speeds of 24MBps.
ROFL! Found the debug:
"Thank you but our princess is in another castle."
CJPC, Why does option zero cause a system crash?
If you have write access to /dev_flash, you could probably modify the xml file to include both sets of options (although you run the risk of wrecking something I guess)...
It seems the ftp server locks up if you transfer a lot of small files with full speed. I just limited download speed to 500 kb/s and the server just downloaded a few thousand files without any problems.
I'm currently searching for a possibility to order the queue of Filezilla to get the small files first. This way i could download the small ones with limited speed and if Filezilla reaches the bigger ones i could deactivate the speed limit.
Like a few others here I was having problems getting past the "List" command in my FTP client. I was using my laptop directly connected to the PS3 via ethernet. I was also on the internet using my lappys built in WiFi.
After disabling the wifi adaptor in the Control Panel (NFI why I tried this!) my FTP client connected straight away.
Just something to try
Not sure why you guys talk about getting cross-over cables, most new equipment these days are Auto-MDIX. Including PS3.
