    [Answered] 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.

    Any ideas?

    Best Answer - Posted by Maximus87:

    All the USB Ports are OK because i use USB Sticks and Jailbreak. Everything work correct. Searching the internet somewhere I read that cannot read USB 3.0 without external power supply. My hard disk has only one cable to connect to USB. No power supply... Now I am trying to format again to Fat 32 with another program.

    Edit: Found a solution... PS3 does not work with USB 3.0 devices...

    The reply from Sony: "Yes, it does not work with USB3.0 devices. It's been stated in the article and in the User Manual of the PS3."

    Hope that this helps the others!!

    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...

    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?
