    just so you know, ps3 can only recognize one fat32 partition, so if you plan on having two partition, make sure the other one is not fat32

    If you have access to a Mac, you can also use the Disk Utility app to format the external hard drive to anything OTHER than Mac format (MS-DOS for instance) and voila--FAT32!

    I used Acronis Disk Director for formatting any large drives in FAT32, works like a charm!
