do i install both pkg's ? i got a ps3 with 3.41 with a ps3key 4.5 -- so it shows 3.55 FW in system, i need a ftp to acces my ps3, this will work or not?

nvm got it all fixed and running works good -- but singstar doesnt start, just a black screen when i mount it - and then load. wtf.

HA ha you're trying, as you know i never said that. For the last time! 63MB/s. pisses all over your speeds. lol. gutted.

ok so you're saying, just to be 100% clear, your WD caviar blue hard disk is either reading or writing at 2.4Gb/s (or 300MB/s).

That's pretty funny

No I don't think my drive runs at 3.0Gb/s, thats what it says on the drive, nor did I say it did, its 2.4 Gb/s like I posted before,And m8 LOL you have nothing to explain to me, I can see in all your posts you've made in the last two months, you have nothing to offer. And now your saying.

"I said around the 25MB mark because thats about normal". Ow so you didn't know this from your own test then? Its the norm you say, well it's not the norm, then you say its the Ethernet thats the bottleneck, so what is it? the drives. the network, or the PS3, or just the norm? Come on please explain to me which one is it now? End Of!

I said around the 25MB mark because thats about normal, if you get more go you. but i've given up trying to explain hard drive speeds to you. you just carry on thinking your hard drive runs at 3Gb/s and its the gigabit ethernet that's the bottleneck lol

No1 I never said I was trying to fill that gap in your pipe, you said it was down to slow hard drives.

So I am saying your wrong, and its getting boring now.were are you getting 25MB/s max from, thats slow as fooook and, and please don't tell me I am not getting 63MB/s, on my setup or tell me that, you can not get the speeds I'm saying when I have done this many a time. 63MB/s is 504Mbps, which is actually 1/2 the size to fit in that Pipe on my PS3 1000 base T network card.

Generally 60-70MB/s is what you get on Gbit normally , and I have done for a year or two now, since I had the kit to make the loads and so on.

Barry M8 it's you that don't get it!!!

no the sata connector on the end of your drive is capable of 3Gb/s thats not the actual throughput of the read write heads!, that's irrelevant when you look at the read write speeds of a mechanical drive. you're really not getting this are you, that hard drive will never fill a 3Gb/s pipe.

"Average read and write results of 74.5MB/sec and 48.1MB/sec place the 500GB Caviar Blue near the bottom of our benchmark table" -- Taken from

And those results aren't bad for a mechanical hard disc, the things were designed in the 80's and haven't really changed since. Your 63MB/s transfer speed might be right i'm not argueing i'm just saying it's nowhere near 100MB/s or the equivelent 800Mbit speeds you originally stated

I'm sorry Barry but I still don't understand your logic, you say "the hard drive is nowhere near capable of reading 3Gb/s". The spec of the drive, says it can. So the native transfer rate of 3.0 Gbit/s, with 8b/10b encoding buffered in 16megs of on board ram, will give the maximum uncoded transfer rate of 2.4 Gbit/s = 300 MB/s. The theoretical burst throughput of SATA 3.0 Gbit/s is roughly triple that of the ps3's 1 Gbit/s = 100 MB/s network card.

Don't forget Barry, the new 3.0 Gbit/s SATA devices we upgraded, in our PS3's are effectively the top end of the SATA drives now, or the bottom end of the new 6 Gbit/s drives = 600 MB/s Barry, wow thats fast. SATA also has NCQ that improves the performance.

So I really don't think the hard drive would ever come into the equation of FTP speeds, because it's 3 times as fast as the network card. I forgot one more thing,because I did this ages ago, was I created my own drives partition's and changed the starting sector, before installing win7, because it gives me 70MB/s , all day long. So my 63MB/s is true, because thats what I get.
