    was your filename to long? or your total path to long? I could happen when you're working @ your desktop instead @ C:\

    Thumbs Up 4GB+ Files on external accomplished

    I have successfully achieved a way to have large files on the external, and it was quite simple honestly.

    I only tested this on a 160GB drive, but I assume it works on any drive.
    This is what I did....

    1. Took a 160GB hdd and hooked it up internally.
    2. Allowed the PS3 to install it's proprietary files, format, fix file system.
    3. Booted to hack, filled up the hdd with games.
    4. Put the drive in an external case and hooked it up via USB.
    5. It works.

    I did this 2 days ago and looked around to see if anyone else already did this. I found nothing.

    NZHawk's Awesome MountPoint Manager v1.0 used with this method is great. It isn't hard to figure out what else to do. Naysayers will want proof, I'm not looking for recognition. I am just sharing what I discovered. I was curious, tried it and it works.

    I do have a question though.... How hard would it be to make a homebrew app that would install the PS3's file system on an external without having to go through this process?

    The ps3 doesn't format so its recognised in windows so as far as i know for it to show up it would need to be fat 32 for the ps3 to see the games after putting them on the hard drive in windows.

    I FTP'd the games to the hdd while it was hooked up internally.

    Sorry for the double post, but yes the PS3 does format. If you hold down the power button until it beeps then shuts off, then do it again.... a menu pops up with options to format, fix file system and other things.

    I'm sure that someone else will try that as well and either confirm or deny if it works and - it was already suggested around here and in the +4GB file on external hard drive news thread to do so and I must confess that I've already dismissed that as not possible. I'll stay behind my opinion for now but I'll be more than happy to be proven wrong

    Okay I've got killzone 2 to work with this now. Here's a screenshot of the directory USDIR.

    I made the first tutorial and it works, Uncharted 2 runs from HD.

    Will we ever see NTFS / HFS+ support in the near future, and avoid playing with files? I'm hopeful
