Check LAN Cable or Hardrive. It's not taking such long time to me to DTU. The longest time less than 4h on 160GB and full game on it. :)
LOL, I had to transfer an almost full 500GB hdd. Had to wait like 18hours or something. (Or even more cant remember, but it was REALLY long).

I think it does not only depends on the size to transfer but on the amount of files... So games with a lot of small files will take longer...

bro i know how to use the program, for now here is all my converted games so far, i don't why with some games i get those damn NPAAAM.SF and PARAM.SF as output folders
As it is written in the program, you need to choose PS3_GAME folder, then you need to specify a folder on PS3_GAME.

But NOT the folder called, for example: "BCUS98123-[Uncharted 2 Among Thieves]" or "STREET FIGHTER X TEKKEN [BLUS30722]"

That's why you posted this screenshot with the games? Open any folder with the game, and there you will see PS3_GAME folder. Here PS3_GAME this folder and it is necessary to specify how the program asks.

I wrote PS3GameConvert_v0.9 program so I know very well why there are folders with names NPAAAM.SF and PARAM.SF. This occurs when a user selects a folder instead PS3_GAME -> the game folder ex. "BCUS98123-[My_Super-Puper_Game]". Then, if the program can not find in this folder PARAM.SFO file and therefore gives the name of the folder: PARAM.SF and on this basis to give the name of the second NP folder NPAAAM.SF.

If you specify the correct folder PS3_GAME exactly as required by the program, then the program finds the file PARAM.SFO in this folder and takes from it the correct name Title_ID as BLUS12345 or BLES12345 and second NP folder NPUB12345 or NPEB12345.
