    I would stay away from MyBook [As it has that Security Feature] you need to disable this to use a mybook and format to fat32
    You are better off with WD Element, if Western Digital is the brand you want...

    PS3 is not USB 3.0 compatible, but since the HDD is backward compatible I cannot see why it should not work...

    To format use the HP Format tool... Just search it, shouldnt be hard to find
