[Answered] External Hard Drive for PS3 questions help?
Hi guys. I got 6 games today for PS3 and I wanted to copy them to my PS3. I copied the 2 of them and then PS3's memory got full and I couldn't copy any other games on internal drive. So I want to copy the others to an external hard drive.
I have a 500GB hard drive that I use for my PC and I want to add those PS3 games in there. But I need that hard drive for the PC too coz I have important files inside and I don't want to delete them nor I can move them to another hard drive. So, can I have both PS3 games inside that drive plus other files that I use in my computer (videos, pictures, songs, files, etc)?
I tried to connect that hard drive to PS3 but it can't detect it for some reason. And yes, it's fat32! Do I have to manually create some folders inside the hard drive? PS3/GAMES/...etc? Or maybe the external hard drive MUST be clear in order to work with PS3? Which would mean I can't use that drive for both my PC and PS3.
Also, after I manage to make the hard drive work, how can I send some games that I have already copied on internal hard drive to the external? I don't see an option on multiman to transfer the games to another drive. Or I missed it somewhere?
Thanks for your time!
You have to reformat with default cluster size for its capacity with FAT32 file system , ps3 is quite fussy about it so there is no easy way . Once HDD is seen by ps3 you can use option COPY in multiman it will ask if you want to copy to from internal to external usb
