Question about Western Digital MyBook Studio 1 TB USB Hard Drive
Because the drive wouldn't allow me to write to it, I formatted the drive with my Mac and it works fine now but it cannot be seen when plugged into the Sony PS3. I think it is formatted in Fat32(?) but how do you know and why won't the PS3 work with this drive?
If the drive is Fat32 then you should be able to plug it into a PC and recognise it. Being mac formatted it may be formatted in HFS or HFSX
Apparently the PS3 NEEDS fat32 to reconise it
Perhaps using apples disk utility will help you see what file system the drive is.
