how to play mp3 on PS3?

8 replies 12049 views Edited Jul 23, 2007
Hi. I have a USB Flash disk. I copied a few mp3 songs on it and the tried to play em on my ps3. Although the system detects the  USB disk, but it does not play any songs.  I went to music then USB Device. It says "There are no tracks."
 Also I downloaded PS3 Video software and coverted a few a videos to de ps3 format. Still when I copied it to my USB flash disk and tried playing videos on de ps3 it said "There are no titles." The same problem comes with SD memory card.
Also I burned mp3 & the converted videos to a dvd still I was not able to play em. And again the system detected a data disc.
Does anyone know the solution to this problem? thank u  in advance.

I'm having the same problem and this didn't help me at all. I already tried Display All but all it displays is more nothing. It says my mp3 player is empty when I know damn well there is music on it

go to the USB, Press Triangle Then Display all . there should be a folder titled "MUSIC" if you open it and there is no tracks then try again Triangle and Display all..
