    I'm backing up my libary of games onto a PS3 I got rebug lite on. I'm using NPS to backup my digital libary. When I download a game it dumps it on my PC as 2 folders "Packages" and "exdata" I'm aware I have to put the exdata folder onto a usb and run ReActPSN what I'm not sure of is do just dump the package folder into the ps3 GAMES folder or can I just split them into folders with corresponding games. example: Yakuza 5 pkg file to folder HDD0/GAMES/Yakuza 5. The folders in the GAMES folder all have the letter "B" and numbers following so I'm not sure if I gotta follow some sort of naming convention. appreciate the help

    PKG files go in HDD0/PACKAGES. No naming convention. and you can repack the end installation into one pkg using a computer.

    thanks appreciate the input any links as to how to repack? I take it that doing so removes the need to do the ReActPSN step. For clarification I can puta folder titled yakuza 5 with the yakuza 5 pkg into the GAMES folder as is and be able to install it correct?

    No that's not correct. A PKG has to be converted to folder/ISO format and not every PKG game works, and you do usually need a .rap file which is the ReactPSN step. Yakuza 5 only the Japanese version with English subtitles work. Where to find that in 2020 I have no clue. Then you have to follow a tutorial like this to convert it

    Edit: after re-reading your first post, you may be trying to do something other than what I thought. If you're trying to install just the PKG, that should work. But if you're trying to convert Yakuza 5 to ISO/Folder format (again not all games work) that would require the link above.

    That's correct.I'm using NPS for certain games and the download is in PKG format. I was trying to find out I just drag and drop the pkg into the GAMES folder on the PS3 HDD or do I have something else? sorry it I wasn't clear.
