I've bought a 4 TB USB 3.0 Seagate hard drive, and have converted it to FAT32 partition using Seagate's Discwizard program. I have created folders 'MUSIC' 'PHOTO' 'PS3' 'PS3\UPDATE' and 'VIDEO', and it is externally powered. Computers recognize this hard drive, yet when plugged into my PS3, nothing shows up. Does anybody know of any other reasons why this may not be working on my Playstation?
I doubt this is it. Previously I've been using a Sandisk memory stick in that USB port, I know it works and works well. I'll try it, but I'm not expecting anything to happen. I've heard of certain ports not working for people, but I'm not sure if this is the case
So I've just plugged it into both USB ports and got the same thing. I'm wondering about something though. When I changed the partition, there were standard installation files and things that were deleted. Does the PS3 require some sort of hidden start up files to run? I'm pretty sure there aren't but I'm running out of reasons why this isn't working
EDIT: I've found this in another forum "if you formatted the drive for FAT32 , rename the drive (fat32 HD) to -> (PS3) and then this artical for folder naming" Does anybody know what this is about? Can you translate into non-10 year old-**bleep** speak?
