    Thumbs Down External HD via USB problem

    Hi,

    I have a problem then I connect an External 2.5 HD via Usb on my Hd flashes the red Led. The power supply go on and off.

    I suppose that the problem is the partition. Does it possible ?

    If your power supply goes on and off , thats has hardly to do anything with your partition
    Anyways be sure not to have something like NTFS on the drive, PS3 cannot handle such file system

    hi,
    i think your problem is as mentioned above the power supply. the usb port provides a limitet amount of current. if your harddisk needs more you need an external power source for the harddisk.
