Copying stuck at 98%

Hi there

I've been trying to copy a film (3.5gb) from my USB stick onto my PS3 so I can watch it on the big screen. The problem though is that the process gets stuck at 98%.

I tried it twice and waited for about 1/2 hour but it doesn't move.

Any ideas?

Thanks.

Does it play properly on your PS3 without copying? ie playing it on your PS3 directly off the USB stick
If it doesn't the file might be corrupt or something.

Spot on! I just tried to play it directly from the memory stick but it doesn't work.

It's probably because I used mkv2vob to make the file size smaller so I can put it on the USB, but obviously that failed.

Any ideas how I can successfully transfer a 4.7GB film from my PC to the PS3? I tried using PS3 media server but it keeps cutting and lags a lot.

Thanks.

As far as I know, you can't transfer files over 4GB via USB to the PS3.

The only option is to transfer/stream it over either a wired or wireless network connection, or break the file down into smaller files under 4GB. :thumbsup:

Doesn't TXmuxer let you split files (needed for mkv2vob)?
I've never used it before, but I was reading up on how to split/join files the other day (wanted to find out how I'd be able to join the extended LOTR films into 1 file as the Blu-ray's will be split) & I'm pretty sure I read TXmuxer could do it.

Try Vuze to convert it to a ps3 format. Download vuze free on your pc/laptop, then when it's converted go to the vuze folder from your ps3 and copy it from there on to your ps3 or watch it directly from there.
Let us know how you get on x
