    Right, i think it depends on what model you got, not sure,

    but i have the 60gb one,

    anyway heres how i did it.

    my laptop has a wireless thing in it, if you have a PC with wireless thing that would work to.

    try and find media servers on the PS3 under, video, Music or pictures, and find your laptop or PC, Put what ever you want into a shared folder, and then find that folder from your PC, now transfer it, or stream it.


    If you dont have wireless, or cant do any of that,

    then yes a USB stick works.

    putting pics as wallpapers, get the pic onto you PS3 go to the pic, view it, scroll along the options while viewing till you come to set as wallpaper,

    if you have the internet on your PS3, use the browser to get pics, copy them to your PS3 and do the same, you cant transfer music from the browser though. i dont think so anyway.


    as for phones, connection, mines all pic up my phones bluetooth, by going to network, and going to accessories,

    this is all wireless feature wi-fi,

    if your PS3 model does not supprt that then the only way is USB stick


    Hope i helped

    umm tjere is usually a shared folder in my documents, if not make a folder then down left hand side of my documents window it says share this folder.

    thats me presuming you have windows xp. otherwise i dont know

    but if your PS3 cant find a media server then you laptop or PC must not have a wireless, card thingy

    well the card thing is actually part of the comp/laptop, so the PS3 picks up the laptop/comp

    the router is for well routing internet and stuff,

    im not sure if there is a way to access your comps files using a router, im not a computer buff just have some knowledge,

    but best advice i can give, is use a usb stick, or get pics from the PS3 browser.

    i think you can get music now, not positive, but u cud try.

    if u want personal pics from you PC - PS3 then try this.

    make a free account on www.photobucket.com upload images, from PC

    then go onto the same site from PS3 and find those pics and transfer them that way
