Ps3 My Mistake

Discussion in 'AnyDVD HD (Blu-ray issues)' started by, Apr 11, 2007.

  1. :doh:
    Any way to connect Ps3 directly to my computer or on a network to use the reader to burn blue ray dvds to my computer hard drive using any dvd. It appears as a device when I connect it to my network but I can not access it.:confused:

    You need to hack the hell out of it though. do a google for PS3 at the tech republic site for pictures of step-by-step how to do the hack, and get the drivers from DG.
  3. Did a search can not find article ?any help appreciated :agree:

    Option 1:
    First of all DON'T DO THIS IF YOU'RE NOT SURE WHAT YOU'RE DOING. The PS3 is an expensive system to mess with for this. The pictures are good, even great, but make sure you are paying attention.
    You'll mount your drive inside your computer like a standard internal drive. You can get a converter from most local computer shops for the connector if you need to.
    The drivers for recognizing the drive are available on DriverGuide's website.

    Option 2:
    Buy or download PSLinux3 or PS3Linux. Both include the PC-Out tool which will let you read your BD and HD drives off a computer as an external removable drive, via USB or SATA. You'll still need to crack the shell to install the cables, but if you buy the boxed software it will include the adaptors in the box and the windows/mac/Linux software/driver CD. You'll cut a little hole in the back of the case for the wires to pass through.

    You're getting into the realm of advanced system mods with these though. Despite its shortcomings, the PS3 is probably the most advanced computer you can get your hands on at the moment. Moving things around and swapping cables and adaptors takes time, care and knowledge so you don't fry both systems. If it's to much you can always use a popular mod-site and send your system in to be converted (average US$50) or ask around the local game shops to find someone who can do it for you.

    see above post.
  6. Thanks that is what I needed;) Do not worry I have been here before ( taking things apart that is, putting back together though is another story... :doh: just kidding have a great day :clap: :bowdown:
  7. Your absolutely correct:policeman: I have a large investment in my own dvds blueray discs and there is nothing more frustrating than to have to replace them because of a scratch etc I make backups of my own discs which I have purchased:)

    I wouldn't worry about losing any Blu-ray discs to scratches. The Durabis protection layer on them is actually very, very good. It's ridiculously difficult to scratch that.

    Why do we have to take apart the PS3?

    Won't the PS3 / OS accept an external hard drive through the USB port?

    That would be neat. Burn to an HD via AnyDVD and simply plug n play into the PS3!
