What is the capacity of the external hard drive? Is the usb version 3.0?Is the hard drive showing up on the ps3 xmb? I mean before launching Multiman?
If it not recognized by the ps3 at all, it may be due to the fact that the ps3 slim usb port lacks enough power to operate the external HDD. Which is odd cos some other brands of hdd of same capacity (usually 1Tb/terabyte) have been shown to work on the same slim ps3 console!
It had been reported by some gamers. Some say the same hdd would work on a phat ps3. Others say they got it to work on the slim console only by using an A.C. powered usb hub (that had it's own power adapter for plugging to power source). Amazon has such hubs.
