    Hi all,
    I have just got a ps3 key and would like to know how i can run games greater then 4gb from a portable hard drive?
    I have read that the ps3 will not read greater then 4gb files so how can i get around this?
    Can i run them directly from portable hard drive or do i need to transfer to ps3 internal hard drive?
    If do how can i do this?
    Do i need to run a network cable between my main computer and the ps3?
    I have a laptop that is right next to our ps3 so im sure i could use that.
    Hoping someone can help a noob.

    Cheers Shane

    you need to re-rip the game to the internal drive(using the dumping/loader menu). otherwise it won't work if greater than 4 gigs.

    i'm not sure about this filesplit thing you speak of. But the manager gives you to options to load or rip games to either internal or external drive.
