    Hi guys,

    I got a PS3 and recently i bought a WD 1tb My Passport USB 3.0 formatted as NTFS.I tried to connect it to my PS3 but it doesn't recognize the HD.

    Does someone know how to solve this problem?

    thanks in advance

    ps3 can NOT use NTFS

    Thanks ryupower.I suppose that.
    But I don't want to format the whole HD.Is possible to format as FAT32 jus a portion of the HD?In this case,will PS3 recognize that FAT32 partition?

    thanks
