246w ago - 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:

.PUP
.MNV
.MP4
.PKG

Playstation Home Users use:
.PUP
.MNV
.MP4
.PKG
.PNG
.JPG
.GIF
.XML

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.

Rob if you click Start then right click on my computer and then move down to manage, then a window will pop up and you should see Event Viewer, there is your logs, in there it will tell you why its crashing.

Also can you pop to a command prompt and type this.
path >> c:\robpath.txt

Then goto your c: drive and you should see a file called robpath.txt, then open it and past it here, if you like. if that helps so we can look and see if your paths are right. Just a thought.

no psn games wont be activated with this method, but if someone figers out how to set QA Flag on theses consoles like Mathieulh did then we should be able to get them working.

Hi, robe36.

That would most likely be the cause of the problem, as it's not compatible with the client version due to a dependancy on a few dlls

Hope it's too much trouble for you to install the full version,

I hope this helps.

And Hi, uklee and tommasi (Merged your question as one, hope you don't mind).

I'm aware 3.62 may connect but it has bugs, patched by 3.71 and there shouldn't be really any reason it's not working unless you've not got the full version of .net?

You may find your downloads corrupted, by the old versions however the latest release will allow you to download psn games from the store and they'll install (as long as you've paid for them) the psn has changed a lot since 3.62 was released and it may look suspicious on Sonys network if your using old connection methods etc and not there most up to date url's etc.

I highly recommend you update to 3.71, for your own safety you should be able to find everything you need on this thread.

>> Make sure you have .NET 4.0 Full (Not Client)
>> Tried disabling Windows UAC
>> Right click, run as admin.
>> A fresh install to a path containing no spaces (BAD = C:\Users\Im Dave Hi\Look at this space\ | GOOD = C:\MyPSN\Yay.exe) some people are lucky and it works anyway.

If it doesn't work still, can you post a copy of the error to see if it matches robe36's error? cheers that way I can locate the issue, or at least understand an exact cause.

yeh i used this app when it first came out to download all my 78 psn games. we need someone to make a tool that makes a new licence for them to work again i tried PKG and ELF Toolkit but it wont load the eboots from them or from the game folders that i ftpd them out of ps3 so they all need new licence now don't think the ylod has removed something from the files because they need new license now or make them into ones like the debug ones.

Hi, I'm afraid that I'm unable to help you robe36 as this issue seems to only be affecting one person, to attempt to fix it could break it for everyone else.

Can you clarify your using .NET 4.0 the full version or the client? cheers

Sorry, I can't be of much more help other than to recommend a fresh install of windows.

I would of tried to spent more time helping but our main key server is being ddos'ed by LOIC over 30 connections...

Have a good day,

Hey Jordandyckes,

I deleted the psdm dir and unzipped to f:\ and issue still there...of course it crashes and I didn't see if the error message is the same. I also tried uklee's comment and set the compatibility mode with both xp sp3 and vista sp2 but still didn't work. Had admin mode set on both xp and vista mode as well

Thanks
