    I had to reformat the drive recently and I changed the file structure to NTFS because it wasn't letting me transfer big game files I had over 4GB, I am pretty sure I moved everything in the right spot but they aren't showing up on the PS3 to let me install them, I made an "install" folder and put my pkg files in there but it's still not showing up.

    How do I fix this?

    Did you set multiman to read NTFS?


    Haven't tried this myself but I hear Irisman works. This is a tutorial from someone on gbatemp from another topic.

    I install from NTSF drive using Irisman.
    I use Irisman to Mount and Close. Then it appears in the pkg installer folder on the PS3 XMB. You can then Install from there.
    No need to split files and/or copy to internal memory first before you install with this method.

    You can press start once Irisman boots up. Then go to file manager. Locate your NTSF drive, find your pkg file and press circle, choose Mount and Close and thats it.
    Then Install from XMB. It saves time and memory space.
