    Hi Guys,

    I'm downloading PS3 games from the Internet, but most of the games are larger than 4 GB so I cant copy them to my FAT32 HDD, is there anyway to copy them inorder to play on my ps3 ?

    One option is to FTP the files from your PC over to your PS3 using the direct connect method (Ethernet or CAT5 cable from your PS3 to your PC, wifi is much slower).

    You can find a tutorial on it by searching on Google.

    doesn't that will make a confit since the drive is fat32?

    Well, you're not transferring from the Fat32 drive though, you're transferring from the PC (which most likely has a NTFS drive in it) directly to the PS3.

    Anyway, I've updated my post to be more specific, because I wasn't specific enough when I had in quotes, "cable from your PS3 to your PC", apparently.

    nvm, i forgot that the ps3 uses other filesystem.. thought the HDD on the ps3 was fat32...

    anyway yeah, he should use exfat.. ethernet is slow :/

    I think you're talking about put the game on HDD, if that is the case it's not a problem since most PS3 games run in a decompressed folder, not .iso or something like, fitting perfectly in a FAT32 since the files are split up.
