[Answered] PS3 3.56 not recognizing Fat32 help?
When my PS3 was on 3.50 firmware it had no problem connect my external 1TB hard drive but now it has 3.56 and it will read small flash drives, but won't even read or show my 1TB external hard drive formatted to fat32.
Is this caused by the update or what? please help!
That fix for 3.56 was related to replacing the internal HD though, so I'm not sure its a related problem but who knows with Sony's rushed buggy firmware updates.
My recommendation would be to back it up and try to reformat it using SwissKnife or a similar FAT32 partitioning tool. You may also want to do as suggested above and split it into 2 partitions. Out of curiosity, what do you have on it that you are trying to read on the PS3?
