    When I copy files from PS3 discs to my USB stick (images and such), I use Awesome File Manager. I then put the stick in my computer and the files are not there. Not even showing hidden files makes them show up. Is there a way to get them to show up in Windows?

    its explained in the readme file with the program here i copied the section:

    --------------------------------------
    Known issues in 0.05
    - Not possible to copy/delete any files with spaces in it
    - When copying things to the External USB, the files are marked as system files. Windows will not display them unless you turn them on as explained in: http://www.mydigitallife.info/2006/02/16/r...es-and-folders/
    --------------------------------------

    or even google it. if you have windows 7 with god mode its super easy. anyway, hope this helps

    The version I had didn't come with a readme, so thank you for the help.

    Known issues in 0.05

    - When copying things to the External USB, the files are marked as system files. Windows will not display them unless you turn them on as explained in: http://www.mydigitallife.info/2006/02/16/r...es-and-folders/
    --------------------------------------

    * * How to >4GB file backupping (need at least 0.03). * *
    All files/folders copied from the internal disk (like /dev_hdd0/game/LAUN12345/GAMEZ/)
    to the external disk (/dev_usb .. ) which are larger than 4GB will be splitted in multiple parts.
    When copying the files back from external to internal, those files will be merged again.

    * Note: You still can't play games with >4GB files from the external directly! But now you can at least backup and restore them.

    * * Help, My files i copied to the external drive are not visible on my pc?
    The files are marked as system files, which windows default hides.
    Go to Tools > Folder options and disable the following option: Hide protected operation system files.


    * * Help, It won't copy
    On the screen you'll see 2 directory listings. The yellow one is your 'active' one. You can browse through them with the D-PAD and enter directories with the X. When you press the copy button, the selected file or directory will be copied to the other current folder of the other directory listing. So make sure the other directory listing is always in the correct folder (index of /dev_usb000 for your external drive).
