    Put your games (ex. BLES#####) in a folder named "Gamez" and multiMAN should detect it, if it doesn't refresh the games list.

    Make sure the folder named "Gamez" is in the root of your External HDD.

    The games have to be extracted in order for them to work, and the folder named "Gamez" shouldn't be in any other folder. (ex. F:\Gamez)

    So after you Extract the game it should be a folder that looks something like this: BLUS12345.

    Move this folder (the game you extracted) in the folder named Gamez which is on your external HDD. (ex. F:\Gamez\BLUS12345)

    Is your External HDD formatted to FAT32?

    Go to "My Computer" and highlight your External HDD, it should tell you the File system on the bottom.

    connect it to your computer and open it in Explorer right click while in the root of the drive (X:\) and click properties
    the window should show you the storage unit type and file system... like this (attached image)
