Use this tool to format a drive thats over 32GB as FAT32 Format,  HP USB Disk Storage Format Tool

 

or if you are comfortable with command line you can use Fat32Format


     Launch PS4 || Launch 60GB YLOD || PS3 Slim 1TB || Gaming since October 1977 (Atari VCS launch)

Does the four gig size limit apply to game files as well?
Also, the ps3 data (previous saves ect.,.) will still exist right?

Re: How to use a USB external Hard Drive on your PS3

I have a question.

 

I can use my usb for movies, photos and stuff.

 

I can copy the autosaves for my usb disk but no idea where can I chose to save the game data to the usb drive.

 

because just the gran turismo academy wants to save 8GB in my 12 GB console... 

 

and I can't seem to point it to save those in the usb extension. nor can I move it to the usb data

Well, I mean yes & no, I don't know what you're asking, but it'll work with any kind of hard drive, as long as it's clean and formatted in fat32.

I have done everything right, and the external hard drive shows in the Data Utility folder under the Games folder on my PS3, but the PS3 doesn't save in game data to it.  Why not.  If I try and install a new game, it still says my system is full and I need to save up space, but when I go into the new hard drive and click on Info, it says empty?!  Please help.
