    [UnAnswered] PS3 JailBreak External HDD Problem?

    I am having problems with backup manager detected backups on my external.

    Fat ps3 with ps3key boots & plays from internal perfectly. invested in an external to speed things up but backup manager just wont show any games.

    I can backup games from disc to the external & they show up but it just wont show any that i transfer from ps3 to usb HDD.

    They are placed in folder GAMEZ. any idea what i could be doing wrong?

    thanks

    There are 2 reasons it might not work:

    1. Be sure that you formatted it in FAT32! NTFS DOES NOT WORK!
    2. The folder must be all uppercase ( " GAMEZ " )

    Hope I helped...

    hi kelbie, just a tip if your external needs to be formatted windows wont let you do anythink over 32 gig so use a prog called swissknife thats wat i used.

    its defnitely FAT32 & named GAMEZ. it just let me backup Gran Turismo onto it and shows up in Backupmanager & boots. I formatted using an old HP Usb format tool as i know windows7 uses exFAT. I will try again with swissknife and see if that helps.

    thanks

    SwissKnife doesnt work on windows 7 x64

    Don't use Swissknife! Use built in tools!

    Just right click on drive and select FAT32 and default allocation size. Format it. Mission Accomplished.

    SwissKnife worked fine for me on Windows 7 64bit.

    swissknife worked for me on win 7 64 bit also, this is a great free prog fat32format just google it. it's a prog by ridgecrop that definitely works as swissknife worked for a 80 gig harddrive but not my tb one i don't know why.

    I think you game folder as to be called like BLES00763 (example) to see them in open manager !
    I use NZHawk's Awsome mountpoint manager to mount games with different Name (My dirt 2 folder is called Dirt2 instead of BLES00763).

    Try with NZHawk's Awsome mountpoint manager, awsome tool !

    And for the fat32 formating tool, I use fat32format: (softpedia.com/get/System/Hard-Disk-Utils/FAT32format.shtml) which is easy to use, no need to install, it s just a command line tool !
