I believe it has to be formatted to FAT32 instead of NTFS, that is probably your problem

I think those are the same, so not sure what your issue is then... it may be that 64gb is just too big of a flash drive for it i guess. Hopefully somebody else here will know what the deal is

Does the drive have a "U3" partition? U3 is basically a way to auto-launch software from a USB flash drive.

If the drive has a U3 partition, and it's the first partition the PS3 may not recognize it. If you don't care about the U3 stuff you should be able to fix it by deleting all the partitions reformatting the drive with Swissknife.

Everyone thinks I'm psychotic (except my friends deep inside the earth).

Can you give us any information at all on what kind it is or who manufactured it? All I know is that you have a 64 GB drive. At any rate, apparently some people have had trouble getting the PlayStation 3 to recognize certain USB flash drives and hard drives.

Alright, I have a few things to try to help. First, after checking that there's only the one partition, make sure to do a full format, not a quick, on it. This may or may not do the trick. Second make certain things are using the proper file structure. ie VIDEO folder et all. Umm yeah, that's about it from me.
