Hi,


I have tried 2 different enclosures (1 being NexStar.3 and ther other is Bytecc. The PS3 doesn't seem to recognize the Hard drive in them at all. Drive is a Maxtor 200gig.


Can someone let me know what type of enclosure they are using for their external drive? I think the enclosure might be the problem since it isn't registering at all in the PS3. External USB thumb drives work fine.


Thanks,

Format it with FAT. PS3 doesnt work with NTFS.


P.S. All of the USB-flash using fat, thats why you can use it without any problems. An one more thing, you cant write to the external HDD.

wait, if you save date from web browser, you can write it to external hdd, right? I dont think it will allow you to save it to internal drive...

Its from "PLAYSTATION®3 General Forum":

I use one. Get a USB 2.0 external HDD and make sure it's formatted in FAT32. No, you cannot install YDL to the external HDD because at install time there is no USB support. You HAVE to install YDL to the internal HDD.

Does your Wester Digital book power down automatically when the PS3 is shutdown? And can you definately save cds on their using the import function? I wouldn't mind getting another hard drive for a jukebox using the PS3
