Zune/ iPod/ MP3 player playback

6 replies 15 views Edited Oct 28, 2010

i was thinking, how awesome would it be to just plug in your zune or ipod or mp3 player into the PS3 using the USB port and be able to play music on it and even while playing a game. I just thought it would be a good idea to impliment it in

That'd be sick man, but unfortunately I haaven't heard anything about any of that stuff happening. I hope that somehow Sony will try to do something like that over the course of the next year or two years

You can get to your music with the iPod, but not with the Zune. I'd be suprised if they ever added that feature.

There's another option called "plugging it into your TV's audio output".  *gasp* what in the name of god's creation is that?

Calm down Stormrage...

 

I don't believe they actually added iPod support.  The iPod Classic can work as a mass storage device, and if formatted to FAT32, the PS3 can access it's folders and playback your music.  But iTunes stores the music in random folders with randomly named files.

i've tried to play my iPod nano on my PS3 but all i get is a ton of random confusing files with numberical titles, and no recognizable track names. The system doesn't play the files and all my music videos show up as "corrupted data". I would not completely blame Sony for the problem with iPod playback. It seems to me that actually Apple's more to blame, seeing as how they tend to make their products and files only compatible with other Apple products (such as the old iTunes DRM music format that could only be played with iTunes and on iPods).
