Does this problem occur on other computers? 2tb is a lot of data. Do you have indexing enabled on the drive? That could be slowing things down.

1. Open Windows Explorer from Accessories.
2. Right click on the drive (or drive letter) that you want to turn off the indexing.
3. Select Properties on the contextual menu.
4. Unselect (untick) the Index this drive for faster searching option.
5. Click Apply or OK button.

Wd mybookk essential 2tb external hard drive is not recognized by my PS3. It is formatted to ms-dos fat with 2 partitions. both are formatted the same.


Simply put, it's WAY too large. Fat32 (which is what you should ahve formatted it to, not just fat) does not exceed 200MB, not 1TB

My Book essential 2 TB hard drive not recognized by PS3. It is partition with 2 ms-dos fat partitions. An ideas how to get the ps3 to see the usb mass storage device?


You must format the drive as FAT32

Note that your drive is too big to be formatted as a single 2TB FAT32 partition, its basically too big for PS3 usage.

but I think we should be able to get it to work.

You need to create one big partition off the drive, you can do that by connecting the drive first to your computer and then, right click on my computer or computer and select manage. Then on the right side of the computer management window you need to click on Disk management.

On the right side you need to find your 2TB externall hard drive, delete all the partitions from it so that its entirely free space or unpartitioned space, then create a new volume, full size of the drive, do not format it, if it doesn't let you pass without formatting then make sure its on quick format and fat32.

I am having a problem copying large mkv files from a WD 2TB mybook to another WD 2TB mybook. they are both formatted to NTSC. I had no problem loading the first drive but the second one is giving me fits!


In order to fix this problem, be sure that the drive is formatted to NTSC. Mine was, however, when I started loading mp3 files to the drive first, it somehow got reformatted to FAT32. I don't know how, but it did. Copy your mkv files FIRST!
