Run Games through External HDD Problem
For about 3 hours I am trying to run this game through external drive. All these days I am using only copy from BD to internal drive. It is the first time i downloaded GT5 and NFS, put only NFS in FAT32 drive in GAMEZ folder, and the Open Manager 2.1-I doesn't show the NFS Game....
GT5 has a file that is 12 GB and cannot put in FAT32 HDD... But the NFS was normal...
Can someone tell me what I am doing wrong? Also with an FTP Manager I saw that my Open Manager saves the games at OMAN46566 folder.

make a folder named OMAN465666 on the external HDD and copy the game there... Also the Game shud be in its code that is for example BLES-000000... rep me if i helped...

Thanks for replying but still nothing... Open Manager refuses to read the HDD...
The LED of the external should light like on my Macbook?

EXTRACT THE GAMES!!
Downloaded games need to be extracted from their rars so your just left with the plain folders and files.

Yes the games are extracted. It is a folder BLUS-30566 and inside PS3_GAME folder, PS3_UPDATE folder and PS3_DISC.SFB file...
The BLUS-30566 in inside OMAN46756 folder, and the OMAN46756 is on the root... Also I would like to mention that my console is EUROPE.
What I am doing wrong?
