iphone - PS3 connection. Is it possible?

20 Replies 38,512 Views Created 22-09-2009

ACTION - Connect iphone 3gs to slim PS3 vis USB

go to  Accessory Settings/Audio Device Settings\Input Device\iphone

 

So once connected the PS3 can see the iphone but no files can be read.

 

Does anyone know to get the two devices talking to each other?

 

Cheers

I've googled it to death... also tried the Apple support forums and app store. Even youtube vids!

 

NOTHING!

 

So I thought maybe going down the jailbreak road would lead me to the answer - NOTHING!

 

Surly some smart chap has the answer?

what are you trying to do? transfer files?

 

if so what you have explained in the OP is setting up a headset so there's no way in hell that'll work you need to go under music,video or photo and see if it shows up if it doesn't then as someone said get an app so you can use the iphone as a media server then use the ps3 to copy the files over the network.

 

if you are trying to use it as a headset, you can't

This is a video of the actions taken

 

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PbC2SV_Kcwo (it's not me in the vid btw)

 

I have a media server set up already - that's not my interest here.

 

What i'm trying to do is effectively turn my iphone into an external hard drive, so I can put videos/music on it from outside sources and then play them back on the PS3 via USB. 

 

Currently i'm using an APP called file aid which allows u to put any file onto the iphone - that part is sorted.

The problem is getting the PS3 to read the info on the iphone!

 

Any one with a big brain who can help would be much appreciated!

 

Cheers

that's to use it as an AUDIO device to talk to people, it won't work as i said you need to go to music/photo/video and look for it should be 2/3 down from the top.

 

i think you need to plug it into a pc/mac, go to itunes and select disk management and turn it on:)

Its impossible, the iphone has its flash storage locked out so its not possible...The only way is to use a media server..If that even exists...

Isn't there an App which makes the iPhone act like a USB pen drive. Will it not read it like that?

Cheers for the link jag10!

 

I reckon that's the only way to do it with Linux installed. Not so good for me if the slim doesn't run Linux tho! *****

 

Maybe a jailbreak APP will pop up which will solve this fairly obvious problem.

 

Cheers again jag10

With the solution I mentioned above, I can get my files off my iPhone onto a PC (I normally work on Mac), so 90% sure it might work on PS3. It just behaves like a USB stick.

Thanks for the input KnightsOfCydonia

 

You are right there is an APP called fileaid which when used with a PC/mac u can transfer files like u would a usb pen - fantastic!

 

The problem is connect the iphone to the PS3 and look for the iphone files - nothing.

 

It's possible the PS3 doesn't like reading the flash memory on the iphone as I read it only reads external memory in fat32.

Since the iphone is detected as an audio device, is it possible to use the iphone as a headset?

at the moment the missing link is an app bcz a hacker has manage to copy remote play settings from a psp and used them on a pc/mac an can control the ps3 on the pc as you would on ur psp.

 

now you say you want to be able to put ur music on ur ps3, what i did was use media server on the ps3 to pick up my windows media server (windows media player 11) so it will put up all your songs that you have on ur pc that u sync ur ipod to anyway, so u just copy n paste to ur ps3. now remember not all songs will work like 1's bought on itunes, only ur burnt cd's will.

 

also for ur ipod/iphone theres a free app to send pics to ur ps3 imediashare that turns ur iphone into a media server so theres pics n music sorted also the method for copying music works the same for video to but is tricky cz it cnt be a itunes film and it has to be supported file on the ps3
