i have formatted my external hard drive to ext2. do you know what the command would be to dump a game to it? thanks.
The magic word is SEARCH. If you searched the forums around you would be surprised to notice the answers are right there! still in any case you lazy enough to look around here's the guide: http://ps3.ps3news.com/
or better yet, here's the command for it: dd if=/dev/cdrom of= /mnt/exthdd/ps3disc.iso
I have been searching, but have found nothing that works, that is why I am here asking if anybody knows. As for that command I used it and it did not work. Does anybody know if it is because it is in EXT2 and not in EXT3?
Correct. it's ext3 not ext2. to format the drive in ext3, this is the command you use:
xxx= drive name
& then dump your games using the command above
