When I connect my iPod to my PS3, I don't see where the PS3 sorts my music by playlist, artist and/or album. All I see is a mess of randomized folders. It looks like the PS3 only browses the iPod like a portable hard drive.

Please see below for screenshots that explain my issue better.

1. iPod shows up under "Music" ("USB Device - iPod")

2. I access the iPod options by hitting the http://i32.tinypic.com/s0ycl2.png button

3. Then choose "Display All"

4. Access your music by choosing "iPod Control"

5. Then choose "Music"

6. You then get a hot mess of tons of numbered folders, in complete random order - as seen here:

7. Like I said, complete random order. No sorting by artist or album:

So those of you with a PS3 and iPod, am I missing something or is this standard?

That's the way the PS3 works with any external storage device.

Unbelievable that the Microsoft Xbox 360 plays flawlessly with the iPod (the 360 sorts playlists, artists and album) but the PS3 can't. Boo :(

no, but it is believable that 1/3 xbox's crash, whilst 1 of 500 ps3's crash. hm?
not to forget the ability to put in a hard drive more than twice the capacity of the xbox 120gb hard drive for $90 less :)

you can just install "eyeconnect" on your blackbook (if you have wireless). it makes your computer a media server, and you can download/stream whatever you want

Yeah that's nice and all, but I still can't get my PS3 to read my iPod. While my Xbox 360 reads it perfectly.

Either way, I guess I'll stick to the slow wireless streaming to the PS3.
