Normally the srt text file containing the subtitles needs to be named exactly like the video file. I've had problems even with this though. What I've been doing is just re-encoding the file and just embedding the subtitles during re-encode then I don't have to worry about it not working. I get unsupported format when it should be working.

download the DivX converter from DivX.com and you can merge the subtitle file to the video during conversion.

Thank you, I've been trying to figure out how to do that... hopefully the loss of quality from converting it again won't be too severe.

Try software freeware AVIAddXSub http://www.calcitapp.com/AVIAddXSubs.php
You can add up to 8 subtitles to any Divx file without re-econding the video, you just need ~2 minutes per .AVI
From PS3, choose subtitle options from the "triangle" button, works like DVD subtitle behavior.
Also works on regular DVD player capable to play Divx files (like Sony DVD players)

This is the best alternative I found !

Here you have a good internet site where they show you in a easy way how to put the srt subtitle into the movie so that the ps3 can read the subtitle, on that site is also the link to the free program that you use to put the subtitle inside the movie. www.how2download.net
