    How to transfer from PC to external HD?

    Hi Guys,

    Sorry if this has been answered a lot (i have a feeling it may have been) - i searched around, but seems the answer is to transfer to Internal.

    How do you transfer PS3 games to your external Drive. Is it as simple as plugging in your external Drive to your pc by USB, and copying it over?

    If i look at the games on my external through my PC - all the folders in the root have weird names...

    How do i go about doing this? Thanks a ton!

    Yes, it actually is. Depends what manager you use, but usually you would stick it on your external drive in a few specific folders, ie /GAMEZ/BLES00001/ or whatnot.

    However, the drive must be formatted FAT32 for it to work, and the game must also work via an external drive (some don't).

    don't forget you must jailbreak your console first.

    For information on how to jailbreak your console, please check the front page. It should not take you much time to do so.
