    Windows can see EXT3, there was a file in another similar topic to this one where a poster uploaded a file that would make EXT2 and EXT3 readable under XP.

    ext3 would be the best way to format the drive. I would format ntfs (from windows since most of you out there probably dont use linux much) and try it. I keep reading that the ps3 cant read ntfs. But i dont see how that would effect linux. The PS3 has usb port linux can mount usb drives. you should be able to type mount -t ntf /dev/sda (or sdb) /mnt/mydirectory

    First you would need to make the directory. type mkdir /tmp/whateveryouwant

    Although YDL may not know what "ntfs" is. I'm sure you could add it. Or use the fedora image, i know it can mount ntfs.

    For those of you at the command line and get no permission and such type: sudo su
    It may ask for root password. Then you should have full controll of YDL. To make directories delete files etc...

    And to the one with the backup problem. your device /dev/cdrom <-- i thought i read it was located at /dev/dvd but i would have to double check my ps3 to be sure.

    Hope this helps someone.
    fyi to you. NTFS in Fedora is read only. Even if you can recompile YD5 to support NTFS, you will not be able to do anything with it. Sorry.

    I see that a lot of people are trying to view EXT3 formatted disk in Windows. Have you consider scp from YD5 to your Windows? that way, you don't have to bother moving disks around. It might be a bit slower, but will also work.

    This is how I did a blu-ray dump because I didn't feel like hooking up an external drive, so I just mounted a windows share and copied it to their like this:

    mkdir /mnt/share

    mount //<shareip>/<sharename> /mnt/share -o username=user,password=xxx

    dd if=/dev/cdrom of=/mnt/share/dump.iso

    I would suggest to mount the EXT3 partition under Windows using the following free driver:
