    So I've jailbroken a couple of ps3s with my e3 flasher in the past,however I've never been successful in getting ntfs to work with multiman.. I always get this message when I try to start the PFS driver in the mmos file manager menu..

    I thought the config file was not needed anymore, but seeing you still have issue it might try to use it as fall back.

    Look in the PS3 > FAQ and guide > MultiMAN Beginners > NTFS chapter
    Direct link:
    https://gbatemp.net/threads/multiman-beginners-guide.291170/#chap.ntfs

    The guide is old (based on MM2.x), so there's probably different things or compatibility now.
    The guide says it can only read files to copy to internal, but I think now it can even play games directly from it (not 100% sure as I didn't follow PS3 scene since I wrote that guide).
     
    masterpad and obs123194 like this.

    Funny thing you posting here. I just saw your beginners guide a couple of hours ago and Yes I know I don't know why the usb.cfg is still needed. Everyone that I talk to doesn't have this problem except me.. :(

    Try creating the file and see if it helps.
    if not, maybe it's an issue with your drive, it's not compatible.
    Try another one if you can, or check the partitions (maybe it needs the NTFS to be the first partition, or to be on a primary partition, not a GPT?)

    i have teh same issue, my problem with the .cFG file method is about multi-partition HDD, several tutorials said :
    in deviceManager=>properties=>details=>parent multipleHDD will display ids for each partition but i only got one id

    PID (Product info) and VID (Vendor info) is a data for the hardware, it doesn't change based on the partition you create on it.
    PID_VID will always be the same for the same product.

    I don't know if MultiMAN can select the partition to use, nor if it's compatible with all formats (MBR/EBR/GPT)
    You should read the readme and changelog (there's a LOOOOT of information in the changelog, if he did anything related to the PFS/NTFS support it will be listed there)
