Hi all, newbie to these forums,oldie to multiavchd..hi dean!
I actually signed up for this forum because i was having trouble with my newly modded ps3 running multi 3.55 kmeaw 1tb internal upgrade..
All of a sudden my external Ntfs drive that i was using to transfer games to the internal,WOULD NOT SHOW UP no matter what i did..
I thought i deleted something because it happened like mid transfer of a game-the game didnt fully copy to internal hdd, then kicked me out..
So i go back to File manager and the external ntfs is gone.. (not being recognized-no matter HOW MANY times i restarted)
And Btw,ALL multiman was doing was the Circle of arrows, REFRESH REFRESH REFRESH REFRESH
every single time i went back in multiman,and like FROZEN! I had to turn off and back on ps3 like 18 times!
Obviously my first step was to redo the pfs ntfs permission thingy to no avail...like 5 times.. i freaked!
Next,i uninstalled reinstalled the same ver. of multiman to no avail.. then i REALLY FREAKED!!!!
Next i thought i may have deleted the USB.CFG (because the ext ntfs drive wasnt recognized) so i re-put another one back in the devhdd/80608 thing,. nothing still..
FINALLY after a lot of googling,i came here,found this thread,and SO THANKFUL to DeanMan,i saw this thread (His post) about too many files/too long names in MUSIC VIDEO ETC ETC..
BUT,i didnt have any files in MUSIC,VIDEO etc etc BUT,in the RECYCLE bin right next to it (this is on my ext. ntfs drive) and in the recycle I HAD LIKE 100GB of GARBAGE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Deleted it,problem solved !!! thank god once again for dean!!! Thanks man... And BTW Get some damn sleep! Sheesh! i Bet youre on your computer on the toilet!! HAHA
some more info about the problem here.
My PS3 have:
two groups of pictures (diff dates)
* first with 170 pics
* second with 150 pics
two groups of videos (diff dates)
* one with 200 videos
* other with 170 videos
Only in XXMB the MM freeze.
When MM starts I change the view (R1) and everything works fine, I play the games whit no problem.
If you need more info let me know.
in VIDEOS exists files with the same name, but diff dates.
How many games you have?
If you leave it in XMMB, can you check which icon is flashing in the upper right corner when it locks?
I have 62 games.
in XMMB at GAME list has no problem at all too.
but if I change to the VIDEO, the two icons flash (refresh and video) then PS3 freeze, only pushing the power button to turn off.
Here is one final attempt to fix this issue:
multiMAN ver 02.02.00 UPDATE (20110713-154000).rar (1.77 MB)
Please install it over your current version and give it a try.
Let me know if it fixes the issue.
now only the refresh icon spin,
the poster of videos not showed.
there is a log/debug file to send to you ?
No, there is no log. Posters not showing is normal (I changed it). Does it lock or just icons are spinning?
everything is locked.
sound stops, spinning icons frozen
Ok, finally I managed to replicate the problem with freezing/lock/exit-to-XMB during multiMAN's launch (in about 20-30 seconds). All fixed now:
* Fixed a major issue with lock/exit to XMB during scanning of XMMB columns
* Increased number of entries per XMMB column to 3200
multiMAN ver 02.02.00 UPDATE (20110714-142900).pkg (1.07 MB)
