Hi I have a lacy 160G (no extra power needed) plugged into the USB. The lacy is in FAT32 format in order for the JVC to read the files. I have audio and video files on them. Somehow it only reads and plays the audio (mp3) files and not the videofiles. Anyone with a solution?
I had the same problem on memory stick. If I have pictures only on memory stick it is working (pictures played in a slide show). After that I've try with a mixed CD (MP3 + pictures) and was the same problem - only MP3 played. I think KD AVX33 doesn't know to read both type of files at the same time.

if you can't read any file from it it's because it's probably format as NTFS. You have to format it as FAT32 otherwise PS3 won't read anything from it.
Also, you have to create two partitions on it because PS3 won't read anything bigger than 512 GB.
When you got it to fat32 go to MOVIE, PHOTO or MUSIC and hit the triangle button in order to display your files.
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.
Try connecting the Lacie to another computer, if it doesn't work then the hard disk may need to be formatted using Disk Manager. I suggest you format as a primary partition in FAT32.
If it doesn't work then it is possible that the hard drive in the Lacie has failed. To test the hard drive, remove it and connect it to an USB hard drive adapter and connect it to a working computer's USB port. If it deosn't detect it as an external drive and you connot open folders and files then it is faulty. You can install a new hard drive in the Lacie and then format in FAT32
There are companies that can recover data from faulty hard drives BUT it will cost you an arm and a leg for their services.
You can use any non powered USB drive (gains its power from usb only). You just have to plug it into your PC and select Properties > Format then make sure you format it in FAT12, 16 or most commonly (recommended) FAT32 file system.
Once you've done this you can transfer all your music onto it then plug it into the USB port lead from the back of the head unit
