Question about HDD Upgrade Procedure (Possible Multiman issue??)
Question about HDD Upgrade Procedure (Possible Multiman issue??) –
I am currently running 3.55CFW Kmeaw and I was going to upgrade the HDD. Original HDD was the 1st generation 40GB model.
I bought a 500GB hard drive and stuck it in my PS3 for it to be formatted.
It formatted with no issues.
I then put my original back in and ran the backup utility and that finished with no issues, copying to a 32GB fat 32 volume (hard drive with 32GB partition)
I then put the 500GB drive in and restored the backup to that new hard drive and it completed without issues.
So as of right now, my PS3 has the 500GB installed, with everything on it, and running.
I tested a few games (DOA 5, Crysis 3, etc) in Multiman from the 500GB drive and everything was fine.
Here is where the issue begins.
I FTPd into Multiman v04.20.00 and began to copy Mortal Kombat (BLUS30522) to the internal drive. I used Filezilla (latest version) and had it send 7 files at the same time during file transfers.
During the transfer (about 80% completed), it failed and I had to hard reset my PS3 because it had frozen.
Now it is saying that the HDD file system is corrupted, and when it finishes "restoring" and reboots, it continues to just say that the HDD is corrupted.
Could this be a multiman issue? Or a FTP issue? Or something else. Is this even the right way to upgrade in 3.55CFW?
I stressed tested the HDD before I used it, I'm sure it is fine.
Thank you in advanced!
That message happens when your ps3 crashes.. Usually doesn't mean anything. When it appears just hit cancel.
I usually use Filezilla in Passive Mode with 2 files at a time and it works fine. I remember I used to have problems with more than 2 files at a time.
Thanks for the responses!
I didn't think to hit circle, just out of the fact of frustration.
I will knock down my FTPing to 2 files at a time to be safe!
EDIT UPDATE: Hitting circle didnt do anything, X is the only button that causes something to happen, in this case it starts the restore.
