PS3 External Drive …Connection

Hi folks,

Well… here i was today wondering why the heck my new 2TB Seagate external drive, would not register with my PS3. I Looked at everything, made sure the formatting was correct for FAT32 .

Yes that was fine and made sure my PS3 folders were on the driver MUSIC, PICTURES, VIDEO, GAMES.

Yes all done.

But I was still at a loss. It wasn’t until I hooked it up my Mac and discovered the drive was formatted in FAT32, however the file table was incorrect.

It was formatted as FAT32 GUID  Partition Map, It should have been in Master Boot Record.  Once this was changed and the drive reformatted. Everything worked like a charm.
