    Hello everyone
    I have a wd passport HD with 320gb... Now I went ahead and formatted from ntfs to fat32, and ended up with about 128gb or so of hd space. Why is that? Reason why I'm doing this is to add an external hd to my ps3

    lol that's what I used... For some reason nothing works. I get the same results even if I reformat with ntfs through the os. Then formatting it again with swissknife.

    I had to use Swissknife in SAFE mode to get my external portable USB powered HDD to FAT32. Everything else I tried...the HDD stayed at NTFS.

    LOL I even tried the same guide.... Well now that I think of it, I really don't need the external space right now, besides its my backup.

    Thanks for the info though....

    Question:
    Any type of brand of HD you recommend with the ps3?
