FAT32 has 4 gig file size not partition size. And i think someone said cod3 was about 6 or 7 gigs. There is a way to split the file in linux but i dont know what the command is.
ext3 would be the best way to format the drive. I would format ntfs (from windows since most of you out there probably dont use linux much) and try it. I keep reading that the ps3 cant read ntfs. But i dont see how that would effect linux. The PS3 has usb port linux can mount usb drives. you should be able to type mount -t ntf /dev/sda (or sdb) /mnt/mydirectory
First you would need to make the directory. type mkdir /tmp/whateveryouwant
Although YDL may not know what "ntfs" is. I'm sure you could add it. Or use the fedora image, i know it can mount ntfs.
For those of you at the command line and get no permission and such type: sudo su
It may ask for root password. Then you should have full controll of YDL. To make directories delete files etc...
And to the one with the backup problem. your device /dev/cdrom <-- i thought i read it was located at /dev/dvd but i would have to double check my ps3 to be sure.
Hope this helps someone.
fyi to you. NTFS in Fedora is read only. Even if you can recompile YD5 to support NTFS, you will not be able to do anything with it. Sorry.
I see that a lot of people are trying to view EXT3 formatted disk in Windows. Have you consider scp from YD5 to your Windows? that way, you don't have to bother moving disks around. It might be a bit slower, but will also work.
