    How to Format External HDD w/ ps3?

    Ok guys I need some help. I bought a WD 2TB external HDD. I hooked it up to my pc, formatted...Only option it gave me was to format it to NTSF or whatever it's called.

    I couldn't format it to FAT32. I didn't know I could format it w/ the ps3.

    Anyways...I transferred all my files from PC to external HDD...I go to connect it to the ps3...but the ps3 doesn't seem to recognize the hard drive when I plug it to ps3 via USB.

    What or how can I re-format it using the PS3? Any steps or tutorials would help. Thanks
