    Or internal HDD only? also for some reason my PS3 won't read my external HDD which I wish it would because it's like 1TB compared to my flashdrive which is 128MB :/

    Anyone know why it's not seeing it maybe?

    Yep, however some games refuse to boot on the Internal HDD.
    They need an external HDD or some need a physical game present.

    Is there a list that shows what games can't work on internal/need a physical game?

    Unfortunately, I have no idea.
    I know that the GTA IV collection must be booted via an external HDD/flashdrive.

    So anyone know why my HDD isn't reading?

    Does the PS3 not recognize certain file formats or something? my drive is NTFS. In the format section it only shows exfat. I tried downloading swissknife to try and fix this but it just keeps crashing everytime I try and run it..


    tried this but it didn't work..

    I am asking myself the same question, does anyone know what is the best option for storing backups and launching them? I have been looking at ManaGunZ but im not sure about HDD compatibility.

    In multiman settings it says you can install to internal or external so yes. As for the best launcher i'm not sure about that sorry.
