    Im currently sending NFS hot pursuit to the internal hard drive using blackbox ftp server
    the game says its about 6.6 gigs
    How long should it take for transfering games
    I left it all night from 11pm to 10 am and theres still 6gb left to transfer

    According to my calculations it should take 4.444 days to download the remainder of the game.

    Maybe I would have the games finished by now.

    Are you doing it wirelessly? If you have an ethernet cable, use that, the speeds are much better.

    Use a wired connection for much faster speeds. It took me 6 hours to transfer a 22gb file wirelessly (Which failed with only 30 mins left in the end for getting disconnected

    I assume that the difference is that the psp is a mobile device whereas the ps3 is a static one. You name a good reason to have multiple connections in the ps3 as well, but I doubt Sony had it in mind when they designed the fw.

    The debug firmware allows multiple connections which supports your reason to why they only have 1.

    Debug consoles probably require to connect to different networks by developers and its more convenient for them to easily switch between networks. I have switched to different networks about twice in my 6 months of owning a PS3 lol.

    It would have been a nice feature since some people (such as myself) like to carry around my PS3 to take to friend's houses.

    ^ Exactly what I was thinking. I actually have a few friends that brings their console systems whenever they go to a friend's house. Hell I bring mine too when I go to my cousin's house since he doesn't have his own.

    Hi everyone..
    I didn't wanna open another similar thread so here is few questions :

    1) If game is bigger then 4GB , can I play it from external HDD or I must transfer it to internal ?

    2) My external HDD is formatted to fat32. One of files of EyePet backup is bigger then 4GB. How should I split that file so that game works ( runs ) after splitting ?

    Thx.

    Does PS3 Splitter works only with Gaia or with all backup managers ?

    It should work with all of them. I've never used it since I'm using internal but you can give it a shot.

    The splitter is only used to transfer files from external hard drive to internal for example, you can't play games that have split parts.

    Just 1 more question, since I have EyePet Move E. that have 1 file bigger then 4 GB, I am wondering is there a maybe different "rip" that doesn't have so big file ?

    The same question applies for all other games, is there more versions or there is always only single one .. ?

    The reason why NFSHP(7GB) takes so long to FTP to your PS3 HD is that it's PS3_GAME folder contains over 18,000 mainly small files in comparison to GT5(13GB) which has only 12 files.
