Copying divx movies to my PS3

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
Ok - so I am going out of town for a few months for the army, and I have made a bunch of rips of my favorite dvds that I have. My intention is to put them on my PS3 hard drive so I don't have to bring any DVDs with me, which will save space. How exactly can I do this without using a USB flash drive? I have tried burning the files to a DVD in a folder called "VIDEO" and the files are not showing up on the DVD once it is in my ps3....Anybody have a way to do this? I don't have a flash drive larger than 512mb right now so that option is out.

Any help would be appreciated..

Also these files are mostly MP4 format.

Its simple. Do you have an external hard drive? On your external hard drive put all your divx movies in a folder (name it something like 'Divx movies').

THEN plug your external hard drive into the ps3 (the external hard drive must be formatted in FAT32; the ps3 won't recognize NTFS).

Once you plugged the external hard drive into the ps3, the hard drive should show up under Video part of the XMB (you will see the hard drive in pictures, music, video on the XMB but you're only concerned with video).

So go to the hard drive in the video part of the XMB. Hit triangle on the ps3 controller and choose 'Display all'. This should list all the folders on the external hard drive. Go to the folder ('Divx movies' on the External hard drive), hit triangle and copy. The folder will now copy onto the ps3.

On your ps3, the copied folder will be re-named by the date it was copied (so if it was copied today the folder would be something like March 16 2011). To rename the folder hit triangle, pick properties (i think that's what its called) and rename the 'Information' (i think that's what its called). Changing the 'information' will change the folder name.

Oh btw, this is important. If you have an existing Video folder on the ps3 (for example called 'PS3 Divx movies') and you want to add videos later to that existing folder.... rename the new content 'PS3 Divx movies' (same name as the existing folder on the ps3) and the ps3 will merge the new contents with the old contents.

I burned a DVD full of Divx files and it worked fine. They weren't in any folders, just straight on the disc.
