I'm using TVersity to stream ~650 GB of media to my PS3. It works perfectly for music and video.
Also you can create "playlists" on your PC and import them to the PS3 over the network as well, which works out great!
I used to have the same problem intermittently with both music and video-- sometimes it would show, sometimes it would say there are no titles etc.
I just stopped using the feature.
- I'm not a Playstation fanboy. I'm a Micro$oft hater. It's different.
Heck yeah! LOL. I was about to return my PS3. I plugged in my Terabyte Western Digital My Book External hdd and it says, "There are no titles." I'm like what?! I'm pressing buttons but nothing. I must not have hit the triangle button because thats it! Right before that I also went in System Settings somewhere and Enabled WMV content because and now Im playing all my mpegs, mp4, and avi's just fine! Super dope! Ive never been able to play mp4's with my Samsung DVD player which is supposed to play them but is sooooooo picky with the encoding so none every work. This thing plays all of them! Loving it loving it lovin it!
Do yourself a favor and hit the triangle button and choose Display All. Oh yeah and my device is labeled 10EAVS by default and is FAT32. I had to keep it FAT32 to even work with my samsung dvd player (with usb input). It wouldnt recognize anything else. Love it! PS3 might have won me back! Now if only it were better for first person shooter games then the PC. Im gonna have to look into if I can get a high res mouse to use with it? Theres nothing like the accuracy of a mouse for FPS games!
Thanks, icemanfresh! Yours was the exact answer I needed. I had repeatedly tried reformatting my video into different formats, changing the file extentions on the flash drive, and still always getting the "There are no titles" message. I don't know why I didn't try the triangle button, but that did offer to display all and found them. And when I made a VIDEO folder and put them in there, then they showed up all on their own. Which with hindsight does all make sense. Even my Android system finds different media like that. But just needed someone to spell it out and hit me over the head with it. Thanks. :-)
