Its high time that you take backup of your usb drive and format it. Copy the data back to the USB once format is finished.

It seems to to me that your USB is about to die.

My PS3 have error code 8002f334


I've seen this error code going around for the older PS3's. From what I can gather, it's a HDD issue that can't be cured easily. Here are the steps to take that I found, that seem to work for all PS3 systems.

  • take out the hard drive
  • connect hard drive to pc (running windows 7 64bit, but any windows os should work without other software)
  • open up disk management - in win7 it asked me to make a master boot record, so I did.
  • format in NTSF - that's right, NTSF - don't use quick format
  • shut down pc, take out hd, take usb drive too
  • put hd back in ps3, put usb stick in ps3
  • boot ps3
  • a screen will pop-up saying the hard disk have to be formatted
  • hold start + Select for 5 sec.
  • After formatting the system will restart and the update will start installing
  • configure your ps3 setup - done
  • Remember to get the latest firmware from SONY onto the USB drive.

The hdd is not recognized by the pc, evrytime i plug in the hdd it ask me to formated


Are you using EXTERNAL HARD DRIVE, which means the hard drive is in a box, and you connect it to computer with USB cable? If so, do the following
1. Try to plug and unplug and plug USB cable at the port on computer. 2. While plugged in, try to shake the plug a little. 3. Try to plug the USB cable to USB port at the back of the PC case, not the port at the front 4. Check the usb cable, buy a new one, or borrow one (its cheap) 5. Still does work? bring it to Customer service, there must be an error on the box itself.

Asking me to format but when i try my computer won't do it


It reveals that previously this device was formatted by the highest operating system other than you are using. For example if one floppy formatted within windows 95 it will recognized by the other operating system but if the floppy formatted in 98 that would not recognized by the windows 95 and the operating system will ask for format as you already experienced.

Unable to access files


To access the files off the hard drive another way - remove the hard drive from the case and connect it to an USB hard drive adapter and then plug it into a working computer's USB port. If the computer see the hard drive as an external hard drive/storage device and you can open the folders and files then backup your data. This also indicated the hard drive is OK and the Western Digital case/electronics is faulty.
To use this as an external USB hard drive, put the hard drive in an USB adapter case.

Verbatim portable hard drive not recognized by XP - works in 2000


Restart XP and connect e/hd and it should pick it up. Some systems are plain lazy after a while, so manually install it.
