add your PS3 compatible-video to a PS3 supported external device and connect it with PS3.
PlayStation 3 supports so comprehensive external devices including Video iPod, Sony Memory Stick, CF Card, SD Card, Mini SD Card, Hard Disk and USB Flash Drive. It has a Memory Stick Card slot, a SD & Mini SD Card Slot and a CF Card Slot.
If you have a memory card, for example, Sony Memory Stick Card, you should create a folder named as “VIDEO” in you Memory Stick Card. Then, transfer your PS3 compatible-video to the folder from your computer. Finally, insert your Memory Stick Card to the Memory Stick Card Slot on PlayStation 3.
PS3 would automatically detect the device and display it in the “Video” menu on PS3 system interface as bellow:
Select “Memory Stick” and click button on PS3 controller, your videos in the “VIDEO” folder in your Memory Stick will be displayed.
Note: If the videos on your Memory Stick and other external devices are not in “VIDEO” folder will be not detected and displayed by PS3. However, you could find them by yourself: you could select your device and click button, then click “display all”. All folders and PS3 compatible-video files would be displayed.
If your device is Video iPod, hard disk or flash memory, you can connect it to PlayStation 3 by USB port. That’s to say other operations are the same as the case of memory card.
