[Answered] FAT 32 partition limited at 32gb?
A while back, i was helping a friend upgrade his 60 GB PS3 with a new 250 GB hard drive. He had already maxed out his hard drive and he didn't want to lose any data. So we went to the store and bought a 500 GB external drive for the backup (i needed it for my computer).
When we hooked it to the PS3, (Via USB) it didn't recognize, so i figured that we better reformat it. We unplugged it and hooked it up to my vista computer and we tried to format it to FAT 32 all 500 GBs of it. It didn't work, after a Google search we found that the max partition size for a FAT 32 HD format is 32 GB. So we made the partition and did the back up and everything...
My question is : How do people have these huge hard drives formatted in FAT32 if i'm not able to format more than 32 GB of a hard drive to work with the PS3?
I used PARTITION MAGIC and partitioned 500 gig of a 500 gig drive then it will ask what type of format you want which is wicked m8 easy life.
Just windows is crap
All the best.
