Connecting K-x to Playstation

I'm not having any luck through PS3 support for connecting the camera to the Playstation3. Does anyone here upload their photos from the K-x to the Playstation3?

I have no problem transferring photos to PC, but the Playstation is another story. I'm not sure if I have to set something on the camera (perhaps the USB setting?) or if the PS3 just won't except the input. I do know the memory card has to be formatted in FAT32 and the SDHC in the K-x is.

Can you be more detailed as to where I do this? I've heard this before but cannot tell where I am supposed to hit triangle. It's not intuitive, telling me that maybe I am not seeing the same PS3 setup. thx

I need to figure out why when I go to the Photo section, I do not see USB device. Only choice is Photo Gallery.

Still no luck. When I go to Accessories configuration, Camera, it doesn't see the K-x and the square button in the Photo section does not help. If it were a PC, I would say the PnP drivers aren't there.

Anyone who has had success with connecting the K-x to the PS3, can you provide some checkpoints that I can use to see where it is going wrong? Let's say I'm with the PS3 on and I have just connected the K-x and turned it on...

I'm 90% certain the K-x behaves as a standard USB mass storage device. (Although can this mode be changed??? I own a K20D, not a K-x) USB mass storage is heavily standardized so such devices don't need a drive on any operating system newer than Windows 98.

Of course, if you want to avoid running down the camera's batteries (maybe it's a charge level issue???), just use a separate SDHC card reader. SDHC readers are usually much faster anyway. I don't even know where my K20D's USB cable is at this point, I've been using a card reader for so long.

I would agree with the card reader if we were talking about a PC (although my card reader is already out of date and only handles SD). Here, though we are talking of connecting to the PS3 wich can run the photos to a HDTV. It is supposed to plug in through one of 2 USB ports on the front. This is the slim PS3 and I understand the older models had a card reader.

In the Set-Up 2 menu, you can change the USB connection mode from MSC (mass storage) to PTP. That's on p. 265 of the K-x manual. The K-7 has the same option, same menu page. I don't know what the different connection modes are used for.

Are you saying PTP works whereas MSC does not? Can anyone connecting to a PS3 confirm this? thx
