Can anyone post a working options file for changing the directory in an ntfs drive please?

I don't use Cobra Ode, but does it read ISO games from PS3_GAMES folder?

I don't think what your asking is possible, as they are preset locations for NTFS drives and or depending upon what CFW you use. Have you tried changing the ini file yourself?

Basically all ISO Folders were preset and if your games are not iSO then they will appear in the GAMES OR GAMEZ FOLDER
