Reformat External Hardrive To FAT32, NTFS (PS3)




What do you think about this video?

ScarletFierce: will i lose my data? I got my laptop data backed up on the hard drive.

ScarletFierce: how much should i split between the memory of my laptop and the ps3? My laptop is 4gb and my ps3 is 80g. But maybe i want to put more memory onto my ps3 so idk how much to split it.

Camara Joao: Amazing, it works just fine, and easy. ;-)

dublinbred: i have a wd 2tb ext hard drive,will i be able to convert it over to fat32 as one single file as i do not want to partition it,i just want to store films on it mostly 1.5gb files and watch on my ps3,also i have a 1tb iomega ego 3usb and i converted it over to fat32 and it plays on both my old ps3 and my slim. 

504age: Good vid helped alot...

MrDeathSmiles: Great video, Ken. Thank you so very much. :)

Jacob Yanda: Hey you made this super easy man, thank you.

Andrew McAwesome: Awesome video.Very good job

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 for me. Great video, well explained.

Rene Romero: thank you very much for the info.

Dominique Wilson: Thanks man this really helped me out a lot.

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 :)

az lan: thanks..

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 Zancan not Zancant: 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 Maxblast 5.

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 free?

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 can.

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 this helps.

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 my pendrive

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.. very helpful

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.

harveypaulinopogi: I have a fat32 usb, and it works on my ps3... why does my fat32 external 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 good...
