September 3, 2010 // 7:24 pm - Update: PS3 Download Manager / Booster 3.60 is now available, with more performance fixes as outlined HERE, followed shortly by PS3 Download Manager / Booster 3.62 and a PSNDM Plugin.

Today PS3 Download Manager / Booster 3.57 is available which includes some major improvements!

Please refer to this thread for a description and details about the application, includes links to versions before as well.

Download URL: PS3 Download Manager / Booster 3.57

Snippet from change log:
• Improved download system, to prevent overwriting existing files / downloading wrong file.
• Uses a folder layout to resolve conflicts with same filenames but different file.
• Enhanced range of Playstation Content support, (A bug stopped the program from accepting all file formats, like png)
• Improved stability of the application
• Outputs a Log.txt containing urls captured by the application, to allow you to add the file extension; if you want it to be captured in the download manager / booster.
• Now allows you to change to port the proxy uses by creating a file called port.txt otherise default of 27.
• Fixed bug, where a message keeps appearing on start-up; this will only appear when theres an update and will not display a load of garbage
• Fixed download issue, with files not being saved in the location given in path.txt
• Slight performance improvments by reducing the length of the code for several operations.

Known bug (Not really worth fixing atm, as it fixes it's self):
• When signing in for the first time, you'll get an error; however it should resolve it's self on the second attempt and work first time afterwards.
• iPlayer App Crashes proxy.exe but I think if you remove the file extensions from the ext.txt for the file types you don't want, it should fix it.

Hope you, enjoy the updates; you might need to look at the ext.txt as it depends on which functions you want, as some files cause issues.

Common User use the following:


Playstation Home Users use:

You might find more file types related to applications, in the Log.txt and if you do then simply add it into the ext.txt to use the download manager to handle this file type, remember some file types will cause conflict with applications on the console.

Another update, due to some major bug's in the design which would caused a Major performance issue, in terms of loading speed when caching items.

This was fixed with constant flow url's which fixes the bug of it only loading one item everytime you load an menu like "Whats New".

[3.57 - 3.60]

>> Added constant url flow, to fix several bugs and enhance performance.
>> Url detectection rate is now 100ms from 750ms for faster loading on high performance networks.
>> New option on bottom menu bar, right to display options (added Restart Server)
>> Support for temporary files, like an image for Content being cached.
>> Patched bug where client would freeze for a long period of time when checking for updates
>> Solved first time login issue, but disabling .TXT in ext.txt
>> Disabled .XML in ext.txt as it caused me to loose my iPlayer Icon, and cannot get it back.
>> More reliable url parsing to the download manager, to prevent files skipping the manager.

My experience since improvements of 3.57:

Vidzone now gains a massive performance boost, since it's data is now run through the booster.

Modern Warfare 2 showed signs of improvement in area's such as latency, my PS3 never finds a lobby of a ping < 90ms, and since using the PS DM 3.57 / .60 the lobbys are much better and have a latency reduction of around 10ms - 15ms.

Friends List seems to load slightly faster, and the Online XMB Content seems a lot smoother (In 3.60 / 3.57 had a bug - lack of constant url flow)

It caches most media in used in Playstation Home, and can save up to several Megabytes of data during the connection to the Playstation Network.

All users of the 3.57 and the version before that, will get a notification for a new update.

Download V3.60: at and make sure to overwrite all files, you will not loose any downloads, or progress on current downloads. (Unless you break something)
