Ethernet external hard drive
Ethernet external hard drive –
Is it possible to use a ethernet external harddrive connected through a ethernet switch to backup games with? I imagine it would be much faster than USB.
No as in it's completely impossible due to the methods for backing up games or no as in you personally would be too lazy to create a driver for the ps3 to view the harddrive as removable media?
who knows. like streaming mkvs using ps3 media center... maybe while connected to the media center (in xmb under videos and photos tabs you can see the network drive) you have to check while seeing it, if in comgenies file manager there's a reference under those dev_xxxx things
No, because the PS3 doesn't look to ethernet to find a HDD. It has no samba support, it has no FTP client support. Not to mention, it'd probably have to be FAT32 (that's assuming that the only way to connect to it would be to do a redirect on one of the USB ports to eth0) and most NAS's don't support FAT32. And, it's not exactly easy to create a driver for a system that's completely closed source.
There wouldn't be as that's making a UPnP connection. Completely different. There's nethost support (if you've ever used IRMon for PSP you've used this before) built into dean's MultiMan. That's about the closest you're going to get. BTW: the only devices that I know that support nethost are old Linksys NAS drives and that was only by hacking linux onto them and then creating a cron job to continously run nethost.
