Hard drive compatability ???

2 replies 53 views Edited Aug 1, 2012

Is this external hard drive compatible with my PS3 ???

 

toshiba 593561-AO

 

I'm having issues with my ps3 recognizing it's existance..........8*(

 

I'm also having a helluva time re-formatting it to a fat32.

 

Any help will be very much appreciated.

It won't work on the PS3 unless it's FAT32, so figure that out and then see if the PS3 recognizes it.  How have you tried to format it?

Yes........we are having issues with getting our computer that runs Vista to format it. As soon as it is through putting the hard-drive back to it's original settings, were gonna try another program called...........

 

formatfat32exe.

 

We have been trying to format it for two days now and apparently it "partially took" on one of the attempts. As soon as it gets through putting it back.............we'll see how the program I mentioned works.

 

Thanks for the response.
