I searched to find out how to download your music from your Ipod to your PS3 but came up short handed. The only thing I found was how to play your songs. So after a couple of minutes of messing around with it I finally found out how to download your songs to the Playstation 3. I hope nobody has already posted this but if they have I am sorry. Like I said I tried searching for it and couldnt find anything. Anyways for those of you that are interested I will proceed to show you below.
#1: Plug you Ipod into your PS3.
#2: Go to the music section and scroll down to USB Device (Ipod)
#3: Press triangle then click display all.
#4: Click Ipod Central then wait a second until you see music.
#5: Press Music then you will see F00 proceeding by F01 and onward.
#6: Now click F00 and you will see a list of songs.
#7: Now scroll over the song you wish to download and click triange.
#8: Now a menu will come up. Press copy.
#9: Now your song will download to your PS3. This should take less then 3 seconds.
#10: Now press circle and proceed to do the same for the rest of the songs you wish to download.
#11: When done click circle until you are back at the main music section.
#12: Disconnect your Ipod and you will see all of the song listed by albums.
The only thing that sucks about doing it this way is that you can only download one song at a time which can take a while if you have 500 songs like me. I bet sony did this on purpose so that you wouldnt take up your whole hard drive if you have a 30 gb Video like me. You can speed it up by downloading the whole folder or multiple songs from the same folder.
For example: While scrolling over F00 or any other folder press triangle then click copy and it should download everything in that folder or (my favorite) while scrolled over a song in the folder press triangle and then press up. You should see (copy multiple). Click it and select the songs you wish to download from that folder then click (OK). You should be good to go.
If you want to download your videos all you have to do if follow these same directions. Even direction #'s 4 and 5. (you have to click music) wierd I know. When you go into the folder and select the video watch it to make sure you know which video it is first. With mine the names were all messed up.
If you wish you can sort everything by artist. To do this you must scroll over one of the albums (any one) then click triangle and press up. You should be scrolled over (Group Content) if you are then press right and click which option you choose to search your music under. Press X and you should be good to go. The same should be good for videos. Except it should say (sort by) instead.
If you wish to edit the information that the song/video has posted then scroll over the song you wish to edit then click triangle then scroll down till you see (information). Click it and scroll down each item and press X to edit that information.
Everything I have shown you here today is based on my setup. I have a 30gb Ipod video, a PS3 60gb, and a USB connector cord.
This is all of the info I have found so far. I will update it with more info as I find it or you can help out and post what you have found.
I hope this is very valuble to everyone who has read it. I know it is long but it is definetly worth it. Please dont delete this because it took me like 45 minutes to write and I missed South Park.
