Why wont my wd elements 1 tb hardrive work on my ps3??


1) It needs to be FAT32 PLUS it needs to be externally powered. I found out the hard way that the PS3's USB ports do NOT provide enough power for a standalone USB hard drive, so you need to add your own power supply.

Maxtor external hardrive will not boot up onto my mac


Hi,
Try a more reliable brand. Maxtor isn't. You don't want to take chances with your files!
Here are two options:

1 www.carbonite.com this company will back your computer up automatically for 50.00 a year unlimited.

2 here is a much more reliable external drive at the link below.

Capactiy of external hardrive


That's normal. Storage manufacturers consider 1 GB at 1 billion bytes (1,000,000,000 bytes).

Computers, however, use base-2 arithmetic, and one kilobyte is 1024 bytes, one megabyte is 1024 kilobytes, and one gigabyte is 1024 megabytes. This all multiples to 1 gigabyte according to the computer is 1024^3 or 1,073,741,824 bytes.

Take 320,000,000,000 and divide it by 1,073,741,824 and you get 298.023223876953125, so your computer says your "320GB" drive is 298GB.

There's a standard for base-2 (binary) measurement terminology (gibibytes, mebibytes, kibibytes, etc), but few people seem to use it.
