    Before you do anything, grab your manual and check if the server supports Fat32.

I would say try it to connect it first to your pc to make sure it works, if you can access your files and everything. Then the second thing i would advice is to back up all your files. (copy them to a safe location other than that hard drive) and format the HD to NFTS file system, test it by adding a video, plug everything and make sure your configuration in your USB station is working good. Hope that helps.

My WD My Passport external Hard Drive ! TB formatted for Mac is not reading my files


A Windows PC computer will not read files on the WD hard drive that has been formatted on a MAC.
The fix.
Copy your photos onto the MAC computer then remove the WD hard drive and connect it to your Windows PC and format the WD hard drive in FAT32 file system.
After formatting has been completed remove the WD hard disk and connect it to the MAC computer. The MAC can read and write to a Windows FAT32 formated hard disk. You can now copy the photos from the MAC to the WD hard disk. When copying is complete, remove the WD hard drive and connect the WD hard drive to your Windows PC and you can now copy the photo from the WD hard disk to your Windows PC.

Wie kann ich die neue Western Digital Caviar Green 3TB formatieren auf FAT32 ??


FAT 32 will require 2 partitions since FAT32 is limited to 1.99TB effectively. so when partitioning the drive, make 2 1.5 TB partitions then you should be able to format FAT32.
I'd use Disk Management in Windows to partition and format the drive since it is external.

Is the PC you've used before is the operating system is windows Xp? If you've using windows Xp before then you've plug it in a windows 7 Operating system, it means your hard disc have no problem the operating system of your PC is different than before. Try to plug it in a windows Xp operating system then recover it in there then format it in a windows 7 operating system then, the windows Xp and windows 7 try to make a network place in the connection then share the hard disc files that you've recovered then copy and paste it in the newly format hard drive that formated in a windows 7 operating system.

I have the 1.5 TB Western Digital my book--I did the proper steps to reformat it to have it work with my macbook. My playstation 3 does not recognize that anything is plugged in when I hook it up with...


PS3 can recognize only hard disks that are formatted on FAT32. Since now the disk is formatted to HFS (a format only Mac's are using) you can't make it work. Save all the files on it and reformat it to FAT, then put back the files and only then connect it to the PS3.

My Book essential 2 TB hard drive not recognized by PS3. It is partition with 2 ms-dos fat partitions. An ideas how to get the ps3 to see the usb mass storage device?


You must format the drive as FAT32

Note that your drive is too big to be formatted as a single 2TB FAT32 partition, its basically too big for PS3 usage.

but I think we should be able to get it to work.

You need to create one big partition off the drive, you can do that by connecting the drive first to your computer and then, right click on my computer or computer and select manage. Then on the right side of the computer management window you need to click on Disk management.

On the right side you need to find your 2TB externall hard drive, delete all the partitions from it so that its entirely free space or unpartitioned space, then create a new volume, full size of the drive, do not format it, if it doesn't let you pass without formatting then make sure its on quick format and fat32.

How can i format 1TB Toshiba Canvio portable hard drive to FAT32


Right Click on your new drive in the Computer


Choose a File System (NTFS is ideal most cases) and give the new volume a name if you choose. You might like to call it something like "Portable Drive," or "Removeable Drive." If not, just take the defaults and click "OK."


You will get one last warning that you are about to format your drive and erase all data. Click OK to proceed. When you see the process has reached 100%, you are done and you're new external hard drive is ready to use!

Hello, I bought WD My Book Essential 1 TB but whenever i connect it to my Samsung DVD player it doesn't get recognized. Any help? Thanks


Most probably the format of your hard drive is NTFS. Samsung DVD players only recognize FAT32 formats. If you have the patience and resources try to change the format of your hard drive to FAT32. Better yet since it is a 1TB try to create a partition one NTFS and one FAT32 because FAT32 cannot go beyond 4GB for files.

Hope this helps.

I have a my book essential 1 tb and i want to view my content on my ps3 but my ps3 does not recognize that i have the my book essential hooked up to it.


First, make sure that your PS3's firmware is up to date. You can do this by connecting it to the internet and setting it to update. Otherwise you will have to download the update, burn it to CD and then run the CD when powering on your PS3. Some updates can & will completely wipe-out\erase you saves, settings, downloads, & etc. Check out this web-page by Sony: ps3.com. Is your external hard drive formatted in FAT32? That is the only file format that the PS3 will recognize. Most likely, your hard drive is formatted in NTFS; which better supports large storage devices and you can use longer file names with it. I believe it is possible to format your hard drive in FAT32 (when attached to a computer), but the cluster size has to be set to a certain setting. I would suggest partitioning your hard drive into several partitions or drives, and then format those partitions in FAT32. Or just format part of it in FAT32 and the rest of it in NTFS. The PS3 should then recognize the partitions that are in FAT32. Please give feedback as to if this was helpful or not and choose a rating on how helpful you believe this information was.

USB station is not connecting to USB drive


Something similar happened to me. The solution for this was to unplug USB drive, and reset the device. Afterwards everything worked smoothly.

The other solution might be just to plug the disc drive into another port to see it there is some problem with that specific port USB port.

Good luck!
