    Transfering files from mac to ps3
    Currently I am using eyeconnect to hook up to my ps3 and transfer movies from my mac to the ps3. Only issue here is eyeconect is making it's own folders and grouping my movies in alphabetical order. I don't like this cause I want all my snowboarding videos in a snowboarding folder rather than in an alphabetical folder with other types of videos. Does anyone know if eyeconnect will do this and if not, does anyone know a program that will do it for me. I think it's stupid to have all my seasons for a tv show in one folder rather than having folders for the seasons.

    I have never used Eyeconnect. You may want to take a look at PS3Media Server (AKA PMS server) that will stream and transcode on the fly from your computer to your PS3 if they are on the same network. It (if I recall correctly, it's been a while since I fired mine up) will allow you to "share" a folder with whatever subfolders you want.

    Okay so I was able to create folders on my ps3, but is there a way to make subfolders. So like south park. Then season 1 2 and so forth

    For how you're doing it, I don't know - in the PMS server I referenced it should use folder hierarchy.

    The reason why I'm staying away from the ps3 media server is that I have downloaded it and it has never been able to run. I cannot even open the application. If I could get it to work I would use it since it seems easy and does exactly what I want it to. Just haven't been able to get it to work

    That's weird, I never had a problem with it. Which version did you get? What OS version do you have on your Mac? Do you get errors when you try to run it, or what exactly happens?

    Hmm,

    I know it requires java, I assume you have java installed and fully patched.

    My next thought would be maybe to try an earlier version - if you have the current (1.10.5) maybe try the previous release (1.10.1)?

    You may also want to check this thread: PS3 Media Server • View topic - PS3 media server does not open anymore although it refers to a different system/os combination, it sounds like a similar issue overall.

    I use MediaLink. It cost 20.00 dollars and it allows you to view files off your mac on your ps3. The only problem is that sometimes you have to have a wire hooked up or it will lag when you watch movies. But it is the best thing I have found.
