copy downloaded games from PC to PS3

11 Replies 8,613 Views Created 15-07-2010

Hi,

 

I have purchased a classic PS1 game (to play on PS3) from the Playstation network and downloaded it to my PC as I do not have a ADSL line at home. I would like to install this game from my PC to the PS3 however it doesn't even see the files when I insert the USB memory stick. THe USB is working as I did a system update using this method.

 

Can someone please provide the procedure to get this working?

 

Kind regards,

 

J

as far as I'm aware, the PC version of the PSN store can only download via PC to PSPs, not PS3s...

but I could be wrong!

Correct Mr Deggs - the mem stick/ cvard needs 2 be formatted 2 FAT32 which is what the PS3 works on and when its in ur PC it will run to Windows/Dos which causes an un reconcilable conflict betweeen the 2 - the PSP can deal with this the PS3 cant - go figure but ( and im NOT a PSP techy @ all so am ready 2b corrected by better informed) I think the PSP works 2 a diff file format which is why

I think you're on the right lines there Cruton - although a PC will happily read a FAT32 formatted stick / drive :)

Think the problem is purely that the PSP expects to copy / install games from a mem stick, whereas the PS3 simply doesn't / can't / isn't configured to do it that way.

Thanks all for the info, In other words: there is no way for me to download a PS3 game from PSN to a USB (via PC) and then install it onto my PS3.

 

Kinda sucks. thanks again.

Which downloaded content? As discussed above, nothing from PSN can be transferred from PC (you will need to redownload on PS3)

The revised question should be in a new thread to avoid confusion.
