    try windows 7 disk manager(if you on win 7)... it may just not be active... you should see it in the manager program if it does show up itll either be raw/need a partition... or not active, worth a look

    were did you get your 1tb drive... how much was it...?

    i just bought a 760gb external 43... argos direct

    i just got seagate 1tb for 69 in tescos, its a 2.5" drive

    there was a 1.5tb there for 79 but it was a 3.5" and had a hidden backup partition. i've had one of these drives before and the ps3 wont recognise it because it always sees the undeletable Backup CD drive first. cant delete the backup cd drive cos its not on the disk its on the controller card. (sucks).

    i'd have got the 1.5tb if it wasnt for the risk of it having one of those undeletable Virtual CDs

    the opartition was just comopletely gone, the drive wasnt recognised at all. since then i have assigned it a drive letter. and thats it its now showing as unformated raw data on drive G: thats as far as i dare touch it at the moment. dont want to risk losing the files.
    serves me right for using my ps3 game drive to store other stuff.

    i'll give that a go too, once this 1tb has formatted, its been doing it for 30 mins and done 2% looks like its gonna be another all nighter lol

    you should always keep an eye in tescos, i got a 1tb from there 4 months ago for 49 and about 5 months before that i got one for 55 , (the one with the CD partition)

    i dont know if they get priced up wrong or what , but they often get strange bargains instore.

    just dont buy an hitachi lifestudio, cos thats the one with the cd drive built into the controller card

    NICE 1 ... will keep away from that hitachi... i thought they had the wrong prices on there drives... but i'm not complaining

    use swissknife for new drive for ps3... some software wont format correct with certain sized drives i think there's a limit with fat32

    once again... good luck... enjoy ya drive...
