To quote: As most of you already know, there is a 4GB file limitation imposed by FAT32 hard drives. When using an external hard drive and trying to copy certain games with large files, problems may occur.
PS3Splitter has come to the rescue, allowing users to break up large 4GB+ files into smaller files. This app will automatically scan for large files that require splitting. Making things easy for the user to get their games working on external hard drives.
The method currently supports Open Manager and Gaia Manager. Also make sure to install Microsoft .NET Framework 4 Client Profile before using PS3Splitter.
• Automatic scan of selected directory including sub directories for files larger than FAT32 max file size.
• File split is compatible with Open Manager & Gaia Manager methods.
• "Delete original file" as option.
• AutoUpdate as option.
• Aside from progress bar for file split operation there is additional progress bar showing total progress - helpful if processing more than one file.
• Total progress is also visible in taskbar under Windows 7.
• Parts file size is set to 1024 MB.

sorry for this ignorant question, but is this like OpenSplit where the large FAT files are converted to the smaller 666xx and then enables you to copy the game from your external HDD into your internal; or is it different in that it allows you to play your game straight away from your external HDD?
"Making things easy for the user to get their games working on external hard drives."
I wonder how.. Probably he mean "internal", because for example HAWX 2 doesn't work with the +4GB files on external, I have to copy it in PS3.. Would be cool with the Gran Turismo 5, coz now I don't have any free space for that on my internal drive.
Just wondering about the state of NTFS drivers for the PS3. Does the jail broken environment provide enough support for writing a NTFS driver ? Then, when PS3 had Linux, was it not possible to access NTFS drives ?
