Connecting Hard disk with PS3.


Hello Gene!

1. First step, plug in your external hard drive to your computer first.

2. If this is a new hard drive then no need to back up files.

3. Format your hard drive to “FAT32”. Right click on the hard drive while connected to your computer. A new window will appear where you can select the formatting preferences (FAT32, NTFS, etc.). Select “FAT32”. Don’t select “quick format.” We need to convert your hard drive to this format to let PS3 access the device.

4. Once your hard drive is completed and formatted, remove the hard disk from computer properly. Dismount it from the connection.

5. Plug in to your PS3 and you should be able to access it. You can transfer first your pictures, movies, and songs to your hard drive and access it thru PS3.
