I have bin trying to back up my ps3 to a External HDD and have bin haveing problems.

The HDD will not show up on the consol, It also tells me to plug in a device.

The HDD is a 465 GB, and is NTFS.

 

 

It also has some files from an older pc on it.

 

Do i need to make a partition on the Hdd or can it just not be used

From what I understand; For the ps3 to recognize the file system it must be formatted as FAT32.

You can connect the drive to a windows machine and use Aomei to resize the NTFS partition into a smaller portion of the drive ( I recommend to defragment the drive first ) then reboot run Aomei resize partition use windows to reformat the free space to FAT32. Make sure your not formatting the drive with your files on it to FAT32.
