In the words of the Shark Tank investors, "I'm out!"

You simply want to complicate your life by not being willing to learn about (and follow) safe computing practices. Here's the thing: The rest of the tech world is going to keep moving on, and sooner or later various websites will stop working on your PS3. The browser isn't going to see any more updates, so as sites evolve you'll find more and more will have various incompatibilities. Heck, I'm surprised Facebook actually works on it (though no idea if it's easy to upload files from the PS3 browser to it)

Is there a flash drive adapter where my 1998 memory stick will fit into it like this one. Will my 1998 memory stick fit and work in this or other flash drive since flash drives DO WORK on a ps3 USB. (Probably not fit? Need to find a pix of both front and back of memory stick Pro HG, i guess the back(metal bits at end of stick that gets inserted into slot) won't be the same as back of older stick so therefore older stick won't fit)-



1998 memory stick-

Facebook works easy and fast with Javascript OFF, takes forever or doesnt work with Javascript ON since ps3 uses older browser. I could buy on ebay with ps3 with Javascript ON, but can't check out and pay for the items on ebay .com/.ca, must go to a european ebay in a different language in order to check out and pay for them through my ebay account, hahaha. My ps3 can log into my paypal account directly but when i click any icon on my account to check details they don't work. I guess paypal also kind of discriminates or is prejudice against computers or ps3's with older browsers. PS4 will be my next baby that cant get attacked by viruses. Lap tops or computers needs to learn from them.

well....that flash drive with hg, umm HG memory stick is compatible with PS3 USB, so i thought other versions that do include the 1998 stick would be too but no. Just saw Dumb and Dumber To on dvd. They took something great 20 years ago and made a great remake. I think thats what i was trying to do to, but instead i became Dumb and dumberer, ah ha ha, but no i dont agree'er.

I emailed a seller on ebay and asked if his All in 1 adapter would work with a PS3-

dumber- "Will this work with a PS3 through USB?"

dumberer- "We aren't sure."

Or you could learn about the differences between consoles and general purpose computers and why the limitations of the former make attacks difficult. My super-duper HP calculator can't get viruses either - doesn't mean I'm going to write emails on it.

Reading the posts from the OP hurts my brain.

Also, where did anyone say that USB would be obsolete?

Post #16, if I could like it more times I would.

Anything that has a USB port can be hacked with computer viruses. That's how the CIA hacked Iranian centrifuges.

Well, Exdilbert mentioned libraries, schools are starting to disable USB ports on computers so people can no longer connect by USB,why?

Sorry my posts made your brain hurt, i think its because i over analize every post i ever made with endless thoughts and edits after edit after edit after edit- see i did it again.

Best things about getting on line with a ps3-

From what i experienced, my ps3 doesnt get serious viruses that will disable it like my 3 computers.

Rca video audio out allows me to record anything i want on dvd or cd.

Rca out or HDMI allows me to comfortabilly remain in my couch after playing a videogame on my large 30" full screen color tv and get on line anytime i want without ever needing to go to my desk with a boring small monitor.

But THANKS for the help gents, i'll transfer the memory stick files to my flashdrive using my father's computer, then use the flashdrive on my ps3 anytime i want.

USB ports are sometimes disabled to prevent the spread of malware and viruses or to the prevent theft of files.

If you just want to take the pictures off the memory stick, then just ask a friend, relative, or classmate, go to their house, stick the memory stick in their device, computer, or what ever, then burn the pictures to a cd or dvd, there you have a permanent copy of them and you dont have to worry about the memory becoming obsolete

^^^ You'd only have to worry about the CD/DVD getting degraded/destroyed. And ponder the rather interesting question of which technology will go away faster - optical drives or USB.

USB flash drives fail as well. There is no such thing as 100% reliable or permanent storage. That's why backups are always recommended, preferably two or more backups stored on two or more types of media in two or more locations. If a NAS or backup server is being used, I'd recommend configuring it with a RAID1, RAID5 or RAID6 drive array. Cloud storage (OneDrive, Dropbox, Google Drive, etc) is a good way of storing backups off site.

You must mean RAID1 [Dual Redundancy] rather than RAID0 (Doubled Capacity, Faster Access but NO Redundancy):

People who use Win10 with Norton Anti-Virus installed as an EXTENSION to the Web Browers are pretty much IMMUNE to Viruses....and you will be ALERTED when you want to run something suspicious (i.e. new to Norton)....at which time YOU decide whether you KNOW it's probably OKAY....or TAKE THEIR ADVICE and KILL whatever Executable you downloaded (or other file CONTAINING a hidden Executable).

Reportedly, most Viruses are piggypacked on GAMES, APPS and some Movies that a USER chooses to download from Sketchy websites [despite A-V Scanner warning that it's a SKETCHY Website]...and very rarely on Music and Photos if you check to make SURE that they actually have Music or Photo File Types (i.e. *.aac, *.mp3, *.jpg, *.png, etc).

And then there are those users who don't even BOTHER to use A-V software.....
