How can I access my PS3 Hard Drive?

by BillyBee4 / June 9, 2011 11:22 PM PDT

I am presently wirelessly streaming video from Windows Media Player and Vuze on my computer to my PS3 and watching it on my new Samsung PN59D8000. It generally works well but there are some small freeze-ups and I'm wondering if I can load these videos right onto the PS3 hard drive (320GB). I can't find access to the hard drive anywhere on the menu.

Can anyone help?

You have to go to the video section on the ps3 the hit X the got where the media is and hit X, with me its tversity on "computers name" X then folders X then movies X. Then pick the film highlight it and press triangle which give the option to copy multiple at the top of the screen or copy and information at the bottom of the screen all on the right hand side.
