    Yep, now its finally possible to have external HDD formatted to NTFS...[​IMG]

    So with this NTFS support, can I play games that have >4 GB from externall or I still need to copy them to internal ?
    I am getting out of space, and it seems more and more games have files bigger then 4 GB... I guess on purpose...

    And do I still need to split games that are bigger then 4 GB, will PS3 properly install them or ?

    Do you know the answer, though ? [​IMG] I get that we can copy files bigger then 4GB on external, but except splitting is there any other advantage ? ( like keeping all games on external instead of copying them to internal )

    You didn't read.
    In other words, it WILL NOT play games from external (yet), you still need to copy them to internal to play.

    What it DOES do, is eliminate the need for split files. Since I don't care about split files, I'm going to stick to FAT32 until it NTFS is has more features.

    Gambia, The
    NTFS support ist just starting. Hopefully there will be a CFW in the near future that allows you to load games from a ntfs drive and play them.

    FTP transfer is inherantly slow. Transferring to an NTFS formatted drive should be 10-15 times faster (or 35 times faster if you've got a good system). Even if you have to copy it back to the internal HDD, it should still take much less time than using FTP.

    No, you can't even copy/rip games TO an NTFS drive as the driver is read only.

    Had the same problem, happened because i had the wrong prod and vend IDs.

    Try downloading the newest version of multiman, and dl "USBview" and use that to get the prod and vend ID's.

    My only problem now is that i can't see red dead redemption on my usb, so I can't copy it -.-

    If it can't see the game, make sure it has the right folder structure. For instance - USB:\GAMES\\PS3_GAME\ (etc). GAMEZ works too.

    If you have it within extra sub-folders, then backup managers won't see it. Example of a bad folder structure - USB:\GAMES\Agerest\BLES00594\PS3_GAME\ (etc).
