    I downloaded Gran Turismo 6 and wanted to put it on a USB to transfer to my PS3, but there was a file that was too big for the USB to handle. How can i split this file? (it was not an ISO, rather a Game / PS3_Game / USRDIR

    IIRC there are 2 ways, one is extract the big file (it's a container) the console will read the extracted files just fine
    second way, there was a way to split the big file, and you needed to copy it into your internal hdd which multiman would join back togueter the files

    this is all i remember, wait until someone can give you more details

    Its not a container, but rather a ''GT.Vol'' file

    You could always try formatting the USB drive to NTFS and using IRISMAN's file manager (which supports NTFS filesystems) to transfer over the game to the HDD. I have done this many times with my >4GB PS2 ISO files and it works perfectly without any hassle at all.

    USBs formatted to NTFS can handle files larger than 4GB, so it's worth a try.

    If i format the USB to NTFS, can i also still play games from the USB? (without transferring to the PS3 first, like i can now?)

    When you need a ps3 game split (like the one you described) and you don't want to use NTFS for your usb drive, google ps3 splitter. Yeah, you have to install it but I just scanned it with Bitdefender and the downloaded file came out clean (no viruses... yeah I know it's called viri). Mine has never given me any trouble either. By the way I got mine from Karmian.
    Good Luck :)
