    [Answered] Internal vs External PS3 HDD?

    Hey guys,

    What is the point of using a internal drive rather than a external usb one? Aren't external drive's cheaper and easier to use?
    Best Answer - Posted by Yaddayadda:

    It's WAY faster to rip games to the internal drive (minutes instead of hours), and as currently PS3 only supports FAT32 for external drives, there is a filesize limit of 4GB in place, meaning that some games simply can't be copied to an external drive.

    Internal drive can handle files which are bigger than 4 GB file.

    Yes, untill they update backup Manager so it supports the NTFS filesystem it's alot better. Internal harddrive will always be faster sience externals are USB 2.0 (480Mbps.)
