You can create folder and drop and drag, or copy and paste,
the music will still play via what ever you are using for media player.

How do I format my Western Digital 1T to fat32 for ps3?


Without a firmware update your PS3 needs it to be fat32 as you've noticed, and without the use of a utility Windows will not let you format a 1tb using fat32

You're best be it to download a program called SwissKnife, it's a utility that will allow you to format the drive the way you want

WARNING: Before using SwissKnife to format the drive, you have to take all the data off of it (onto your computer or another drive), if you don't then when you format the drive every file will be lost.

Ijust bought a external drive want to use it for downloading music etc. how to do it how does it work saves up to 440 hours of dvds 250,000 songs, 285,000 pictures what steps do i use to load music or etc.


Well you install any software that came with it. Then, plug it in. It should show up in My Computer as a drive. It can be used as such, cut, copy, paste. When you want to store a song you simply choose that drive as the destination for that file. If there is any software run that first, and see if there is any built in copying/compression software that you may find useful. Always have a read of any manuals & help features first.

Folders wont load or delete


That My Book thing is a pain in the rear. You need to check that your computer has USB2.0 and not 1. if it is 1.0, you'll take forever to do anything on the drive.

Confirm that you have USB2.0 rather than 1.0 before we could move on.

Western digital external hard drive showing empty folder


Hi Elizabethfam

If not removed safely, external devices can lose information when disconnected.

I recommend using a free recovery tool called Handy Recovery which is normally used to recover files accidentally files on a PC. The application can also be used to try and recover files on your external HD.

Handy recovery: http://www.handyrecovery.com/download.shtml (look for the small button near the bottom that says 'Freeware')

Good luck!
