Kim Lacey: took me a few goes but I got it, now I can play movies from my usb hard
drive on my dvd player... thank u :)
DillanOttawa: Today at 5:40 PM
Thanks for this! Super helpful. The best advice was about using USB 2.0
and not 3.0 – this is why the first external drive I bought was not
recognized by either my PS3 slim (160 GB) or my older PS3 (40GB), even when
formatted to FAT32. Also, many of the PS3 slim models do not appear to
provide enough electrical power in either USB port to power even a small
portable 1TB external drive with USB 3.0
For use with a newer PS3 slim, I’d recommend finding an older external
drive with USB 2.0 and a separate power source. That’s what finally worked
Great video, well explained.
moozeex1: YOU ARE MY HERO
Kenneth Sims: @Jimmyoll1 I assume if you reformat the drive and it does not work, you can
always reformat it back to NTFS and return it. To be safe you may want to
ask the stores return policies.
UnOwenWasHere: This was very helpful now I can gladly send my PS3 in for repairs if it
even needs any now that I've backed everything up
Kenneth Sims: @SmashXZ I am not sure of your question, please restate if you still need
help. Add or subscribe if you can.
Kenneth Sims: @nufcdazzla it sounds like you have the right idea. Did this work correctly
for you? Let me know if I can help more. Also like/subscribe if you can.
Arturo Skat E Zancan: Hey mate could you please show me how to install linux on the ps3 after
formatting a drive to fat 32? would be a great help!
TOMMY95215: That's impossible though O_O PS3 can only read FAT32
Kenneth Sims: I hope this worked for you. Let me know.
Kenneth Sims: @sethisagod No problem, glad I could help. Subscribe if you can.
Kenneth Sims: Did you locate the link?
Kenneth Sims: @lechetoni the link was really long, so I suggest searching for Maxtor
Mitchell Hogue: I downloaded the latest maxtor maxblast and after installation I start up
the program and it says before I can use it I need to purchase an upgrade
or some other seablast product. Is there anyway I can use this program for
Kenneth Sims: Did you get this to work?
Nikhil Kumar: Can we transfer downloaded games on external hard disk to internal of ps3
Kenneth Sims: @JoshyXAngels no problem, glad I could help. Please like/subscribe if you
theDRIMYR: However, after Googling a few more remedies, I tried to simply plug in a
different 1T Western Digital 3.0 USB hard drive with is formatted as the
default NTFS, the light actually comes on! Still nothing shows up on my
PS3. Weird, right? what can I do??
Kenneth Sims: @MrSupernovachild I have not tried to save updates but if a game system
does not have the updates for a game, the system will notify you once you
try to play the game on that system. At that point just download it. Hope
JackC HD: Mine keeps coming up with "unallocated" ? help?!
twinklestars1: @TechTwoYou . Hi there, thanks, I downloaded and reformatted the portable
drive successfully. Would you have any videos on how to then copy game
saves/trophies from ps3 to the portable drive. Thanks a lot!
Kenneth Sims: @harveypaulinopogi Glad you were able to get it to work. I felt the same
way when mine failed the first time. Subscribe if you can. Thanks!
hemi0389: Why is it asking me to buy another software i thought it was free
Kenneth Sims: @awsomeboy231 In my experience the true answer is both yes and no because I
have two Ps3's and NTFS worked on one but not the other. If it is any help
to you, it was the newer one it did NOT work on. Hope this helps and please
like/subscribe if you can.
Atomcitypasi: @TechTwoYou It didn't worked. But not a big problem,my tv can play mkv from
Nimeatt: I would just like to thank you for this vid. For some reason, after I would
format it to FAT32 with other programs, my PS3 (MGS4 80GB) would not read
the hard drive. After following your steps, it worked!
harveypaulinopogi: I fixed my problem XD my wd was 3.0 so the ps3 cannot detect it... I
miraculously had a usb multiconnector that is 2.0 I connected the wd to one
of its tentacles, then connected the head to the ps3, it worked... sorry
for the hassle... thanks for this vid by the way! :)
Seth Williams: Most clear and simple tutorial for FAT32 formatting for ps3 i have found..
Kenneth Sims: @allhotnewmusic I have not tried this with xbox but I assume it would work
the same. Let me know, and subscribe if you can.

hdd dont work? :( it works well on my pc... please help!! :(
Juan Yi: hey my friend, ur movies was very well done. but help me out into moving my
movies from my external hard into my ps3 internal hard drive????
Kenneth Sims: @TanjianWei92 So far FAT32 is the only one I have been able to use. If you
find more information let me know. Also subscribe if you can.
MrSupernovachild: @TechTwoYou Thankyou, i also wanted to know can you save PS3 game updates
on to the ext hardrive, because that is what takes up most of the memory.
Patrick Doan: Thanks mate, just what i was looking for :)
Kenneth Sims: @twinklestars1 You could try Seagate.com in the download area, or google.
Hope this helps and like /subscribe if you can.
tiopira emmerson: my usb is fat 32 but do i have to insttall stell
Sham Winchester: Hello, I have a problem. When I open the maxblast and when it try to anylze
portion, it say "To use the product, at least one Seagate or Maxtor device
should be installed in your system". Can you please tell me where do i get
those device and how to solve it
leeraym: Best video on YouTube. It showed my seagate drive but didn't show any
files. I had to highlight USB Device and then press the Triangle button and
click show all. Then it showed my movies. Thanks.
harveypaulinopogi: I have done what you did... my WD 500 GB external is now FAT32... but it
still does not show up on my ps3... why??? :( the usb connections are

allhotnewmusic: i did it but im using a xbox 360 and its still not showing up.. why is this
it says its fat32
Kenneth Sims: @italianmale6008 I will need to know a little more information such as,
what size is the drive? How much of the drive did you partition? What size
is the game? Let me know.
sirtinycreep: It says 'no drive found', even though the external drive was plugged in.
JoshyXAngels: I would just like to say a big THANK YOU!!!!!... I've been trying for ages
to have this play on my ps3, i've watched so many bullcrap videos... but
yours is truley a work of art... once again.. Thank you
Shane Finbow: you legend, it has taken me all day watching videos of people doing it
wrong, and u go and do it in 8 minutes-thanks!
nufcdazzla: OK i've done mine (the External HD i've used is a 1TB WD Elements), I also
read elsewhere that you need to create a file system with folders named
"Picture", "Music", "Video" and "Game, that way the external HD is readable
in each sub menu (apart from game where its accessed in the Memory Card
Utility). What i'd like to know is if that is it all done?, will it now
automatically use the External HD as a spillover for any new material?
(e.g. when CoD MW3 requires a major install) Ta in advance
