    How to copy games to external drive using Gaia ?

    Hi,

    Could someone please explain how to copy games onto the external drive using gaia. When it goes to copy, I just get an error message? Do I need to manually create folders on the drive first?

    Also is there a way I can make the external drive default for copying onto rather than the internal, if so how?

    Thanks.

    Uploaded a pic of the error, it is not just one line there are multiple lines.

    What I did... put the ps3 into jailbreak mode... then put a fat32 usb stick in and went to install packages and installed gaia manager, a message then popped up stating the default path (I believe it was the internal drive)

    Then when I load Gaia manager I put int a disc and press ciclre to copy then a message comes up asking if copying to internal, I say no the external option appears then I get pink purple screen with error messages?

    the external is 160gb... does it create it's own save path or do we need to... if we need to what should the path be?

    Thanks.

    just create a folder on external called "GAMEZ" no quotes and it should work mine is working file like that and the folders the game is doesn't have to be a specific name either.
