Error copying photos onto PS3


Active Member

I've searched and googled this to no solution.

I am trying to copy some photos from my laptop to PS3, but keep getting the error message 'an error occurred during the copy operation (80030416)'. I amusing usb memory sticks - I've tried 2 memory sticks in case that was the issue, but same error message each time. I tried putting the photos in folder PS3/PHOTOS but still same error. I wondered if the PS3 hard disk was corrupt so loaded a song onto the memory stick and that copied to the PS3 OK, which is odd.

I had Photos on my PS3 originally, I then upgraded the PS3 hard disk to a 320gb and since then I have not been able to load photos. I have been able to copy movies and music to the hard disk so I am confused.

Any Ideas?

(I replaced the 40gb with a 320 gb, been working fine for ages) loaded a song next to the photos and that did copy to the PS3 OK

Problem solved - when I turned the ps3 back on it said it needed to rebuild the database which fixed the problem and kept all my data.
