Thread: My PS3 can't see my USB HDD
My PS3 can't see my USB HDD
First one sry for my bad english ^^
I have a USB HDD. I Plug-In with my PS3 and wait and wait and wait, bud my ps3 dont see it.
hi ... you must format your hdd to fat32 and then plug it to your ps3
hmm... can i make 2 partition ?
one fat32 and one ntfs ?
no. ps3 only can see fat32. you better make one partition and use it.
When i use the first partition @ FAT32 and the second partition @ NTFS ?
Whyle i have Files they are bigger then 4 GB.
I could never get my drive to be read by the ps3 when it had 2 partitions on it. I was doing the same, 1 fat32 and 1 ntfs. Now that im only using fat32 its fine! Just hope sony see fit to add ntfs support in an update! Its a pain being restricted to filesizes of under 4gb
I have managed to use a drive with two partitions (1 NTFS 1 FAT32). NTFS partition is of course not visible for PS3.
fat 3t and ntfs are microsoft property
i doubt they will let it use ntfs that would be unethical, maybe they should let it read linux ext2 partitions i would happily reformat my external to ext2.
i made my usb drive fat 32 and bingo
I know most OS's (other than windows) can't write to an NTFS partition but they can read them.
I wonder why Sony does not want NTFS reading.
I can understand not writing to NTFS, but the PS3 should at least be able to read NTFS.
