Try switching your on/auto/off power switch to ON when connecting to the PS3.
The built in power management feature may be causing read/write lag issues with your
drive-PM-unaware PS3.

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.

How do i format to fat32 using windows 7


Windows 7 will format an external partition to FAT32, as long as it's 32GB or less. "Control Panel -> System and Security -> Administrative Options". Right click on "Computer Management", select "Run as an Administrator", double-click on "Storage" then "Disk Management", the right click on your external drive. Select "Shrink Volume", shrink it by 32GB or less, then right click on unallocated space, select format, and "FAT32" will show up as an option during the format wizard.

This is a way to create a small bit of space on an external hard drive for copying some files from Mac OS's to Windows.

My terabytes have gone i just brought it


Hello,

The reason it "lost" size is due to the limitations of the FAT32 file structure. This system cannot address the entire drive because that is larger than it knows how to organize.

You can either format additional partitions(using a PC) into similar sized FAT32 drives and make the space usable by creating 4-5 drive letter or you can format all of the remaining space as NTFS using windows if you don't need the space for the PS3.

Unfortunately FAT32 simply won't support a single drive letter that large.

Hope this helps FixYa,

I am trying to format my lacie 4big quadra raid drive for FAT 32 so that I can use with Mac and Windows. My windows machine won't recognize it so I am not able to format and use with both Mac and Windows....


You cannot format a 4GB drive ALL under FAT32, it is NOT mathematically possible IT will be possible to Break Up the drive into Partitions, and then Format them FAT32. You need to keep each partition under 1GB.

Hello i plug my lacie 1tb external hard drive into my ps3 and it does not get regconise but when i plug it into my pc it works perfectly


ps3 is designed to take certain drive formats. I'm no sure which ones but you could test. Just back up all the files and reformat it with FAT32, FAT...and if it doesn't work just restore the files because gaming consoles were never designed to take externals used by computers.

I replaced my hard drive with a new Hitachi 500 GB and it only reconizes 32 GB.


What format did you use? it must be at least FAT32 to recognize more than 32Gb.
Check BIOS settings too.
