I would like to upload pictures, music and NCAA rosters to my PS3. Is it possible to link my laptop to my PS3 via bluetooth? When I try to detect my PS3 with my laptop is says there are no devices detected. Am I doing something wrong/is this possible? Thanks for the help.
Is there anywhere I can find a good guide to using the PS3? Or is the unofficial guide on this board the best resource?
Yes but I am talking about the ability for the PS3 to recognize a wi-fi device (such as a wi-fi equipped notebook, desktop, PDA, etc.) and being able to network with it without having to install software. I have yet to come across networking software that lets me transfer files from my PC to my PS3, they all seem to not work.
"Isn't copying from PC to PS3 using a media server wirelessly a wi-fi transfer?"
Not exactly. The content is being streamed in real time, x amount of kilo/mega bytes per second, and disposed of as soon as the video/audio information has been rendered to screen (minus some buffering). Wi-Fi transfer allows the capture of media from storage device to storage device using a file system approach.

When I said Copying I meant exactly that. Media servers such as WMP not only have the ability to stream, in which you are right, after it displays the data on the monitor it's lost, but also the ability to copy files from PC to PS3 hard drive thus a capture of media from storage device to storage device using a file system approach. .
