Yes. You may have to press Triangle or something if the files don't show up straight away.

PS3 can read any memory stick unless it not formatted to FAT32

 

You can't move patchs to the stick only images , songs etc

You can move saves if there not copy protected

Yup I think you have to press triangle and scan the USB stick for all the data to appear.

You can't "install" files to the PS3. The PS3 will only read/copy Music, Videos, Images, Saved Game Data, PS3 XMB Themes, and backed-up content from USBs.

 

 

p.s. He (or she) is mine!
