External HD on console are limited to Fat32 filesystem and as such have a maximum filesize of 4gig per file so you can forget about BR rip on external HDD. Even your DVD will have to be compressed to fit that limitation.


The best way is to use them as media extender and stream your media to them via network from your PC with a media server application like TVersity or PS3 Media Server.
