When I connect the PS3 by the usb cable, the PS3 does not recognize my hard drive.
Does anyone know how to get the PS3 to recognize the mp3 files on my hard drive?
I think the PS3 does not recognize NTSF formated drives. My guess is that this is creating your problem. I believe it recognizes FAT32, but you may want to check out their website to be sure.

If you have your ps3 on the same network as the computer that is connected to your hard drive, you can use Tversity (a free program on the net) to access the mp3s via Tversity. Like I mentioned, you can also get photos and video via the same program..

Yes, thus far it is FAT32 only so you need to use a streaming software package..alas no samba then I run mediatomb and it works likea charm. I'm VERY interested in replacing the hard drive though from 60 to 500 or more. My wife would be thrilled too, we could load our cd collection on the PS3 instead of having to stream.

I have virtua fighter and assassin's creed. I have only played them a bit though, mostly playing ps2 games at the moment. I have to say the PS3 was the best birthday gift I have received in quite a long time.

I have 2 thick and 2 thin PS2's. Now that there are some awesome PS3 games out, resisting the PS3 is becoming harder!

My son has a Gamecube and a Nintendo Gameboy Advance. He want's a Wii. Next X-mas I predict him getting one.

Combined we have almost 100 games total.

Sword fighting isn't as interesting as kick boxing for me.

I also got King of the Fighters and Guilty Gear but it was like stepping back in time and I didn't want to play old 2D games anymore.

So far I like VF5. It has the best graphics I've seen and the blocking and counter punching is pretty responsive. Only thing I would criticize the game on is that all the fighters move differently with a wide variety of fighting styles. You get small tiny and gigantic fighters. You almost have to change your fighter depending on who you fight. Because one fighter does alot of high kicks, which works great with a tall opponent, but with a short one you always miss their head. I would prefer if everyone was just a karate fighter with a small variation of moves. Sometimes you press the kick button a couple of times and the fighter does some combos moves, but I prefer they just do one simple move twice. But overall I think it is definately worth the $40 bucks I paid for it.
Cool, thanks for the comments. The things you don't like are actually what I think makes VF so great.

I really enjoy having to totally adapt my fighting style depending on which fighter I am against, and even depending on which human opponent I am against. Last year a few friends and I played literally thousands of fights, and I still feel that there is a lot of improvements I can make in technique. The game is so deep it's a little intimidating for me.

I am waiting for PS3's update to DivX so I can play all my DVD's on the HDD. I am enjoying Blu-Ray's 1080p and 7.1 Dolby TrueHD. I also have it tied to my computer via wi-fi so I can stream videos and music from it. Also I just bought a PSP GPS which is very helpful to me because my old GPS broke and don't want to spend $100+ for a GPS. I am still exploring the unexplored features of PS3 and PSP. I am currently playing Uncharted and Warhawk on PS3 and Metal Gear and Vice City Stories on PSP.
Just out of curiosity, which HDD do you have? I'm looking to upgrade my laptop HDD but I can't find anything over 250GB.

post #22 of 259
I wish I had my headphone setup hooked up to it to tell, as far as I can say...I don't hear much of a differnece but my HT system is far from audiophile-grade.

Well it's advertised as 320GB but I only got 305GB out of it. It's Western Digital Raptor. WD Scorpio 320 GB SATA Hard Drives ( WD3200BEVT )

Through optical down converted DSD to DTS is alright for casual consumers but through HDMI, it's great but not as good as my Sony ES SACD player.

Just out of interest how many of you PS3 owners have installed another OS (ie Yellow Dog Linux)? I would consider buying a PS3 if I was sure that I could utilize the Cell processors multiple cores to encode music.

I purchased a PS3 20GB used and it's been fantastic. I got it so I could rent Blu-Ray movies from Netflix. It's played every one of them wthout any problems. Unlike my Toshiba HD-XA1 which doesn't like any HD DVDs from Netflix. They have to be brand new discs without any scratches or wear.

I do not have mine running Yellow Dog, but I am curious what kind of encoding you plan on doing. The PS3 can rip CDs to its hard drive in a few different formats.

does the PS3 play PS2 and PS1 games effectively, or even better? Does it use software emulation or is there a PS2 chip on there somewhere? It would be great to be able to play PS2 games with more horsepower, because some of them slow down no matter what you do.

Right now I have to keep my PS1 plugged in because the PS2 (2 of them so far) won't play FFT music without artifacting.

From what I have read, I do not believe that the new $399 model is backward compatible, but the rest of them should be.

Just the usual Ogg vorbis with FLAC backups but also DVD conversions (to .avi for my clix), I was wondering if the PS3 can use all seven cores (or even two) under Linux as this would be alot faster than my current 2.4GHz P4 which takes over two hours per DVD.
