June 30, 2011 // 10:07 am - Hi, sorry for the delay in the updates I've been a bit busy this month however have found the time to add a small feature into the PSN Download Manager program which is now updated to version 3.93.

PlayStation Download Manager / Booster is an application designed to increase the download speeds of the PlayStation Network, it can install both free and paid content as long as you've paid for it.

In order to create a speed boost, it creates multiple segments which will draw data from the servers using multi-threading, this allows you to achieve the maximum speed of your line; unlike the PS3 which uses only 1 transfer.

Your PC can also be faster at downloading in general due to several factors, including it's connection method, processor speed, RAM and TCP Optimizations.

PSN Download Manager 3.93 Changes:

1) Added the Connection Optimizer
2) Reduced / Improved the code by around 20KB

You can check out the site, with the download from:

Setting Up Your Console:

1. Start Your Playstation Console
2. Under Network Settings, Choose Custom.
3. When it asks for Proxy, set it to Use.
4. Enter your IP Address given by running Internal IP.bat
5. Enter the port as 27
6. Save the changes, start PSN DM.exe

Using the Application:

1. Start a download from the PSN
2. When it says "Please Wait" Press Circle

You'll notice it is now displayed in the Download Manager, once finished, proceed with the following to Transfer onto the PlayStation...

3. Go back and Download the Content / File again, it should transfer from the PC...

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's use the following:

  • .PUP
  • .MNV
  • .MP4
  • .PKG

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.

Best Regards,

Pixolia Solutions LTD.

I would really like to give this a try. I can barely download 250mb demos on the PS3 yet on my laptop I get 5mbps speeds, up and down.

I also paid for a bundle pack on ps store and its 42.5 GB big so... I need help.

Ok, I might give that a try if it's a download manager as well.

Hi all,

I am fairly new here I am really in need of help in downloading game updates from PSN. Every time I download an update it stops at 99%

I am hoping that this app can solve my problem. Hope this works for current PS3 firmware?

Here is a link to, its the latest I can find at the moment (not sure if 4.0 Rev B is the same as 4.10 but I believe the author passed away so worth a try).
