Re: data transfer utility not working

Jul 12, 2010

thank you very much for the posts on this topic. i had an old 40gb ps3 that the laser died on and i wanted to get everything onto my new slim 120gb. i was getting the message that there was no ethernet cable attached and for the life of me could not figure out what was going. i must have messed around with the network settings for 2-3 hours before finding your helpful blogs.

thanks guys! (only at 5% right now so i guess i probably jinxed myself pretty good if this doesnt work)

Thanks for this and related posts - I was going bonkers until I saw them!

I agree that it's crucial to disable Internet connection and Media Server connection on both machines.

I couldn't activate destination PS3 until after transfer was complete, but apart from that I followed the same steps as you guys. Thanks again!

3944 Views for this thread now and that's for a reason - after an hour of trying to get the ethernet cable to be recognised and reading every 'official' playstation instruction manual (online and hard copy) I finally find this thread.

eloscurosecreto thank you so much for your posts and a solution to a problem that's obviously been an issue for many Playstation3 users - you'd think Sony would have updated their online manual by now to include your edit

  • 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)

Thanks again though - finally working and currently 33% complete

wow, it's 2011 and Sony still hasn't amended their page with the directions. Same as everyone else, I couldn't figure it out until I found this thread. Way to stay on top of your game Sony

I think you may be right. The PS3 may be recognizing the wireless connection, and ignoring the ethernet connection. I kept getting that error, but after disabling the internet and media connections it worked just fine!
