238w ago - Here is OpenSplit v1.0 to split 4+GB files via PC for Open Manager on the PS3 followed shortly by version 1.1 which includes some bug fixes and version 1.2, and deanrr shared a similar app called Split4G which he detailed HERE.

Download: OpenSplit v1.0 / OpenSplit v1.1 / OpenSplit v1.2

* What is this? *

This little tool lets you split the BIG files (bigger than 4GB) in your games on your PC, so that you can use them with Open Manager 1.0 for the ps3.

* How do I use it? *

- Press "Split BIG files to .666xx" in order to select a folder with your games. OpenSplit then will search the folder and all its subfolders for BIG files and split them according to Open Manager 1.0. All game folders that contained BIG files will be renamed accordingly. (example -> "BCESXXX" to "_BCESXXX")

- Press "Merge .666xx files to BIG" in order to select a folder with your games. OpenSplit then will search the folder and all its subfolders for .666xx files and merge them to BIG files. All game folders that contained .666xx files will be renamed accordingly. (example -> "_BCESXXX" to "BCESXXX")

- Check the checkbox "Don't delete splitted BIG / merged .666xx files" if you want to keep both BIG and .666xx files.

You can choose your whole GAMEZ directory, then all games will be processed.

I have attached the program to this post.

An important issue: PLEASE DON'T TRY TO MERGE .666xx FILES ON A FAT32 HDD! There files can't be bigger than 4 GB! You will only encounter errors!

Another issue: IF YOU START A SPLIT/MERGE PROCESS, ALWAYS WAIT UNTIL THE MESSAGE "All jobs done!" APPEARS IF YOU DON'T WANT ANY PROBLEMS!

Enjoy!

Oh, didn't know that Comgenie's splitter is compatible (filesize and extension). I tried his file manager on my ps3 and it has copied stuff much slower than Open Manager. Perhaps that is why I didn't use his other creations...

Old news, as for me. Comgenie Awesome Filesplitter was out from September 25-26 I think. And it does the same thing (even with this .666xx extensions). Weird...

3.50 might take looong time (if ever) but purchasing the new PS3 right now while those on stock are still bellow 3.42 might be the better solution

This basically allows you to store your 4GB + file games on your external when your not playing them. When you're ready to play one of them, swap it to the internal and play it. This is useful for people out there with small internal HDDs, since you can easily move your games to/from internal. Combine this with the PS3 Game Ripper to rip unnecessary videos, and you can effectively manage your space.

Open Backup Manager has this feature built-in, but its nice to manage things from a PC also.

This is an excellent temporary solution until we can use a different filesystem on external drives.

Great app, when you have the best devs and good ideas, who needs NTFS?!

Nope, can't play the games with splitted files from external hard drive.

Yes - you'll need to copy them to internal one.

It has a little to do with Open (or any other for that matter) manager - PS3 simply has NO native suppport for NTFS hard drives and on top of it even if someone would try to code support for it it woudl be not as easy plus it's not exactly the best file system to choose - there is more file systems out there than just FAT32 and NTFS

It's just bug in the FTP server app reporting incorrectly filesizes for larger files (over 4 GB).
