How many FAT32 Partitions Ps3 Can Detect ?
I am trying to have all my backups on the one USB 500gb drive but FAT32 only goes to 32gb, if i was to make 10 x 32gb Partitions would the ps3/multman detect all partitions.
Hi there, Fat32 goes past 32GB but you may need a separate Format partitioner tool such as this one: en.kioskea.net/download/download-127-hp-usb-disk-storage-format-tool
Then you don't need multiple partitions
Excellent. I don't have my PS3 here just setting up my drive for when it gets back. Will the PS3 recognise the drive OK, Do you use this format with your PS3 ?
I want to partition a 500gb into a 300gb FAT32 for PS3 and a 200GB WBFS for my Wii.
I want 3 partitions
1- 250gb - FAT32 - PS3 - Play Backups from this drive
2- 100gb - NTFS - PS3 - Files large then 4gb for transfer to Internal
3- 150gb - WBFS - WII - For my Wii backups
If i can do this i can swap and play drives between consoles.
Any other ideas....
Oh ok i thought it was just the one FAT32 partition you were after.
For multiple partitions like that i always use a program called Paragon Partition Manager 9.
It allows you to choose the size of each partition and also the format. I dont know if there is a free or trial version as mine is the paid version.
Also i am not sure if you will have problems with the consoles, primarily the wii console, finding the 3rd partition after the first 2 that are not WBFS - i dont know as ive never tried it.
