Uploading GT5 files?
Stupid question here. I am running kmeaw 3.55 on Multiman 1.15.02. I am successfully installed and played Fifa 11 and RDR. So I know the setup is working fine.
But I want to play GT5. But When I try to upload it to a FAT32 USB disk because i think there is a 4gb limit for this file format. The gt.dat file is around 11gb and dosent get uploaded on the drive or Ftp
So how do I manage to upload it to the USB drive or even FTP it on to the PS3 system?
You have to FTP it to your games folder on the internal HDD because of the 4gb limit on externals. Your other option is to use split4g or opensplit and split the gt.dat file and put it on your external and then move the game to your internal which should put that file back together again.
So Chesh, I would use split4g and then would multiman put the files back together or do i need to use open manager?

if you are just wanting to dump it on your internal then just ftp the game over and save yourself some time from having to split the file.
what is the problem happening when you have tried to ftp the file over? is your connection timing out on you?
Hey Lucid Blue... when i tried to upload the files from ftp It did the same thing saying file cannot be uploaded. likely because of file limit.

Am i doing something wrong here?
If you are using blu-ray drive on your pc to rip then just FTP it to the dev_hdd0/GAMES (this may be slightly different depending on what manager you are using) folder on you ps3 internal hdd. You can use your backup manager to rip it to the internal and play as soon as its done. If you rip to external you will have to copy it over to internal to load and play. Explanation being because externals must be formatted to FAT32 and are limited to a max of 4GB files. If you have the latest version of the backup manager it should do all splitting and rejoining for you. FYI i seen on the news flash in the forums that someone was working on figuring out the file system for the ps3 so hopefully soon we will be able to format externals to the ps3's UFS2 file system and wont have to worry about this file size limit anymore.ok i think i pretty much covered it all.
Not tryin to be a jerk but you should use the forum search because this one of the most commonly asked questions and has been answered several times.
Edit: BTW i think the name of the file is actually GT.VOL....I THINK!
