I have a 80gb PS3 with USB connection. I want to hookup a 1tb drive with video, pictures & music to display/play through the PS3. As a test I took a 120gb WD portable USB drive, made a MUSIC folder under the root, and copied a bunch of music there. Under that I have 'Genre' folders and under those albums. When I hookup the drive to the PS3, I see the first folder, but just a few songs in that. I assume it is picking up the first subfolder (the genre ones) as Albums, and only looking for MP3s inside those folders, ignoring the actual albums.
1st question - is that correct.
2nd question - is there a way around that - using my own file structure? Problem is that with thousands of songs and hundreds of albums, the root-album-song structure would be way too slow to navigate.
