It happened before but I ignored it since I was transfering files from a disc I figured it was the disk that had the problem

Now im trying to transfer 2216 songs from my ipod to my ps3 but it suddenly froze at 40 (1% complete)

its not cause of drive space because I checked if I had space before I started

Its been like that for 15 minutes now

I wouldn't call it exactly 'normal', no. I've transferred quite a few music files onto my PS (from CDs though, not iPod as it doesn't keep formatting from the iPod) and haven't had it lock-up yet whilst transferring.

Not sure what your issue could be though, perhaps someone more knowledgeable with hardware then myself could give you a better idea.

The same thing happened to me last night, I was moving songs off of a USB thumb drive and it froze around 30-40%. Nothing was working so I did a soft reset. When it came back on the songs that had been transfered worked fine, but I haven't played a game on it yet. I'm using a MGS 80GB bundle and I haven't updated the firmware yet.

what a terrible flaw for such a "power house"

It just freezes. Dead. Not even the ps button works. I have to manually shut it down with the power button( and even then that takes atleast 10 seconds) and reset it

no that is not normal.

i have transfered ~2,000 songs before and no problem.

i just did it again with my new layout which contains 1,690 songs.

while it did take a while, it never froze, there were times where it did pause for a moment (~5 - 10 secs) but it kept on going.

[QUOTE="HowlBridges, post: 0]It happened before but I ignored it since I was transfering files from a disc I figured it was the disk that had the problem

After updating the ipod's firmware it worked better, so you may want to try that (if you haven't already).
