    I have a problem then I connect an External 2.5 HD via Usb on my Hd flashes the red Led. The power supply go on and off.

    I suppose that the problem is the partition. Does it possible ?

    If your power supply goes on and off , thats has hardly to do anything with your partition
    Anyways be sure not to have something like NTFS on the drive, PS3 cannot handle such file system

    Does your external HDD have a seperate power source?

    i think your problem is as mentioned above the power supply. the usb port provides a limitet amount of current. if your harddisk needs more you need an external power source for the harddisk.
