Updating ps3 via memory stick
But a media center with limited memory would be pretty pointless, so I yanked that tawdry little 80gb drive and replaced it with a hulking 250gb drive. You could spend more money on a drive that's capable of 7200rpm and 3.0gb/s, but the PS3 will only utilize it at the aforementioned speeds, so its pretty useless. If you use a butter knife for a screwdriver and rush through it....yeah, you'll probably screw something up. Precision Screwdriver Set - Really, don't try to use that big screwdriver in the junk drawer.
Upgrade to a 7200rpm hard drive or a more expensive 2.5-inch SSD, though, and you'll see significantly improvements to load times.
Load up music, movies, and photos There are a few ways to get music, video, and photos from your computer to your PS3: wirelessly stream it; burn a CD with the data; or use a USB thumbdrive.
Streaming is a great option if you want constant access to your PC's media library, but often the experience is tainted by lag and a spotty Wi-Fi connection.
The trick is to organize the media on the USB flash drive into folders labeled MUSIC, VIDEO, and PICTURE.
Then, when you plug the USB drive into your PS3, you'll see the media in the folders appear in the Cross Media Bar (XMB) under their respective categories.
