Hey guys hope someone can help me out there. Just got a new 3tb western digital external hard drive and have partitioned 1.5tb to FAT32.
copied across all files from old external and plugged it in to the ps3. multiman reads it and tells me how much free room it has but will not display any of the games i have on there and cannot copy anything to it through multiman. any suggestions or help would be fantastic.
you don't need to bother changing the partition. You can use all 3 tb of the harddrive if you want. You just have to have it as FAT32 and change the cluster size of the hard drive using whatever program you're most familiar with.
FAT32 only use a 4GB file size and there for we need the splitter. I read that there are way's arround this but not from the apps from. With which block/byte size it is formatted? Maybe they use a bigger one in case of it is a 3TB disk to enhance read/write speed?
On your external hdd make sure you have a Games or Gamez folder with all your games in either one of them. Multiman looks for those directories in order to read the games on the external drive. Let me know if you how it goes just make sure you have either one of those directories and put your games in it.
Also make sure you are putting all the games in the 1.5tb FAT32 partition and if it still doesn't read it just go to Refresh under multiman and it should pick up the games. hope it helps
Thanks guys but none of the above is helping. all files are in the right place and the partition is FAT32. I have reformatted a few times and then copy and pasted all files from old hdd to new hdd but games still not showing even after refreshing with multiman, but under usb#1 on multiman it does show the free space left on the new hdd. Even tried to copy a disk across but nothing happens till i unplug drive then it starts to give me the copying screen for about 2 seconds then aborts.
