[Answered] Getting a modded PS3 - Int/Ext HD help?
I'm likely soon going to be selling my normal PS3 and buying a modded one. What questions should I be asking/What should I be checking?
The people tried to sell me an external hard drive to go along with it, saying it's faster if I put my files on there, instead of an internal one.
That sounds completely wrong to me, but just in case - what's the truth of the situation? Is a USB HD really faster, or are they just trying to sell the extra?
External HDD are slow in PS3, because of FAT32 filesystem.
You can actually see this by loading a certain game like Hatsune Miku Project Diva F in external HDD and loading a single game takes extra 15-20seconds while when you compare it the same game stored in internal HDD, the game loads much faster like it loads about 5-7seconds.
Either way, the Mandatory Game Data Install will fix this external HDD read slowdowns anyway.
