Can PS3 Read USB Memory Sticks?

24 Replies 55,195 Views Created 30-08-2008
May be a bit of a dumb question but if I have movies or pictures on a USB memory stick can I upload them to my PS3?

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.
