    Exclamation Multiman external HDD help?


    I'm new to the ps3 jailbreaking scene and just wanted help on Multiman and external harddrive detection. Multiman seems to only detect games iv backed up on the internal HDD and not from external. Iv googled and googled but still nothing works.

    This is my options.ini

    # Backup games to these folders: 
    #Look for game backups recursively in these folders: # (leave blank for USB (usb_home) root (/) folder) 
    Iv tried replacing "GAMES" with GAMEZ, game, and the game id. I've tried naming a folder on root of external HDD called "dev_hdd0" so it would be /dev_hdd0/GAMES/Game_ID but nothing works. I'm almost positive it should have been working by now but no luck.

    Can somebody help me? tips?

    anyway i just thought about something. Maybe it's because my external HDD is NTFS? could that be the problem?

    You answered your own question, which means you're willing to learn.

    NTFS is not recognized by the PS3 in jailbreak mode, so you'll have to format that sucker to FAT32 until a driver is incorporated.

    Agree. No matter how you name folders or whatever you do with your HDD, PS3 won't recognize it till it's NTFS formatted, no matter if you use jailbreak nor if you don't and even if you install latest PS3 update it won't help.

    PS3 never supported NTFS and you should format your HDD in FAT32 if you want use it with PS3.

    See that's what i thought because I was sure i read that. Anyway I'm going to search on how to format it an easier way because it has a "autorun.ini" file in their and i can't seem to get rid of it without putting a my original windows disc in my drive -reboot, repair go into dos mode and manually delete that sucker. But i dunno any other way.

    Anyway I'm rambling lol Thanks for you're insight.

    hi... windows can only format up to 4 GB so try using fat32formatter tokiwa and you can format you hdd easily.
