On the USB stick icon, press triangle, then choose display all.

Exactly. Also make sure you are under the VIDEO tab. To this day, I sometimes forget to switch tabs when I switching between music, pictures, ect.
Anyway...Problem fixed?

done and dusted thank you marcusita and war0083,, works a treat,, just quick one,, now this is a ps3 thread, but is GOTsent the best to convert files for xbox360 ??

I've never used GOTSent, but it looks like it'd work just right. Me, I prefer more control and use MeGUI w/ AviSynth, but that's far more complicated than necessary.

There are a lot of one-step converters out there that work okay, and GOTSent seems like another one of them.

.cbr is no video container, it's a comic book reader file, just change the ending to .rar and you should be able to open it with WinRAR on your PC. It's an archive filled with pictures.

Xbox 360: Slim untouched with a faked 320 GB harddrive for XBL, phat with LT 3.0, played Halo early, so going on live would be an instand ban, also with a faked 320 GB harddrive
PS3: Untouched 160 GB Slim, 60 GB Fat with latest Rogero and 160 GB internal harddrive.
PSVita: hardly ever play it
GameCube: Black with a Viper chip installed. With gameboy player. Trying to get a Wavebird controller.

lol bumping a three year old thread instead of creating your own >.<
Anyhow, the only way you will be able to play those files is if you install Linux...

considering that MKV files are just containers... lol just pointing that out... as for cbr im pretty sure you either read them on pc or as marcusita pointed it out install linux on ps3 lol or use showtime on cfw to watch mkv
