Re: data transfer utility not working

Jan 2, 2010
I just got my new PS3 slim (UK) to replace my dated PS3 Fat, and had the same issue of the ethernet cable not being detected, even when I disabled the internet connection and media server connection.  My solution was to keep the internet connection enabled, however I changed the internet settings to Wired rather than Wireless to stop the wifi overiding the ethernet cable connection.  Worked a treat, transferring as we speak.

okay, so now that ive followed eloscurosecreto directions my transfer is FINALLY working. biggest things might be to disable internet on BOTH systems, and manually deactivate your previous system, and ACTIVATE your new system. the video wasnt activated on my new sys so that couldve been a problem. also check your media server connections in the network settings and make sure they are both disabled.

 again, thanks eloscurosecreto.  also, funny name.

tried all the above with no joy

 

Sony suggest I need a crossover cable but I have a couple (one made for me by a company and one I made) and they don't work - I wonder, I have a JP 60gb lanuch PS3, I wonder if this might be the issue?

IM NOT USING ALL CAPS CAUSE IM SCREAMING...I FINALLY GOT THE DATA TRANSFER TO WORK FROM A FAT 40 TO A THIN 120....HERES WHAT YOU DO

 

Sony says nothing about internet connection...you must disconnect from internet first.  go to settings then network settings then internet disable....then disable media server...go to settings network settings disconnect media server......this worked perfect for me..Transfer took about 13 minutes using a regular ethernet cable....Every bit of my data got transfered and everything is working great now.  I have to credit a previous post for this info, im just putting it out on another thread to spread the good news...GOOD LUCK message me back if it dont work.  Ive been trying to do this for about 6 hours so i know whats up

So it seems that a lot of people have confirmed that issue lies with the wireless port being enabled and connected. Disable your wifi and media server, restart and get transferring guys!

I was just about to do a transfer but I was wondering if everything on the older system gets transfered like PS2 saves and Game data?

 

Thanks

SUCCESS!

 

So if you have been reading my posts, most of you all are having the same issues that I am (was) having.

 

I gathered as much information as I could from the net and tried a few options that were specifically not listed in Sony's directions.

 

First off, DO NOT USE A CROSSOVER CABLE! I've seen a lot of people stating that you must use a crossover cable. I thought this would be the case since you are connecting directly to another system, but I thought it was a little strange that Sony would not mention something as crucial as this. I recommend using a category 6 Ethernet cable for faster transfer speeds.

 

Follow the Data Transfer Utility preparation instructions I modified to get me through this heartache:

 

 

PlayStation®3 System Software Version 3.15

 

Settings

 

Data transfer utility

 

Preparing the systems to transfer data

 

 

Before starting the data transfer operation, you must perform the following steps.

 

 

1. Update the system software of both PS3™ systems to version 3.15.

 

2. Prepare the PS3™ system that will send the data (the “source system”).
If multiple users exist on the source PS3™ system, you must perform the following operations for all of the users before starting the data transfer operation.


  • Create a PlayStation®Network account if a user does not have an account.
    Select (PlayStation®Network) > (Sign Up for PlayStation®Network), and then follow the on-screen instructions to create an account.
  • Deactivate the PS3™ system if the data to be transferred contains content that was purchased from PlayStation®Store.
    Select (PlayStation®Network) > (Account Management) > (System Activation).
  • Activate the PS3™ destination system
       Select (PlayStation®Network) > (Account Management) > (System Activation).
  • Back up, or "sync", trophy information on the PS3™ system with the PlayStation®Network server if you want to transfer trophy information.
    Sign in to PlayStation®Network, and then select (Game) > (Trophy Collection).
  • Sign in to (PlayStation®Home) before transferring the data if you have obtained reward items for use in (PlayStation®Home) on the source system.
  • Disable the Internet Connection on both systems.

       Select (Settings) > (Network Settings) > (Internet Connection)

  • Disable the Media Server Connection on both systems.
       Select (Settings) > (Network Settings) > (Media Server Connection)
  • Back up your profile information and stages you created in LittleBigPlanet™ to your saved game. You can then use the data when playing LittleBigPlanet™ on the destination PS3™ system.

 

 

This worked for me and hopefully it will for you! I have highlighted what I changed in the directions so that they are apparent. One or two of the additions may be irrelevant, but I am too lazy to go back to see if that is true. My suspicions are that if you have wireless enabled and connected, your system will ignore the Ethernet interface and therefore won't recognize the connection between the two systems.

 

 

Note: Try this at your own risk! If for some reason this voids your warranty or causes your system to behave out of the normal, I am not responsible.

 

Enjoy your new system.

 



 

 


bumping this thread beacuse is this is what i had to do to get my ps3s to recognize ethernet,figured it might help anyone who is currently having this issue
