    I've recently installed the 4.84 CFW on my PS3 Slim. Anyway, I'm looking to rip games to an external Western Digital 1TB My Book hard drive.
    I formated it to FAT32 using the special format tool you can get offline and I plugged it into the port to the right of the console.
    I then proceeded to pop my copy of "Ratchet and Clank Collection" into the PS3's disc tray to try and rip it.
    I opened up multiMAN and hit copy over to (what came up was "My Book") and I let it run.
    But! It says there are 13,149 files to copy over and currently after almost 2 and a half days I'm still only on 47%
    Is this an issue with the type of hard drive I'm using? Are the read/write speeds shot? I don't see why it's taking
    so long I know it's a big file it's ripped over 8,000MB's or 8GB's already...I'm just wondering if this is normal?

    My first thought before I opened the thread was "a lot of files" but then you said 2 and a half DAYS, ummmm no that's not normal at all that's an issue with hard drive. You may need to reformat it GUIFormat. Even with that many files it should take no more than a couple of hours.

    But that's also a benefit of using ISOs Multiman can split them to fit on a FAT32 and instead of 13,000 files you'll have like 10 files tops.

    @EmulateLife I did format it with GUIFormat. Should I maybe try the 4TB Hard drive instead? or give the 1TB another shot?
    Just to be sure am I supposed to leave the allocation size the same? and leave the volume label blank? Also quick format? or not?

    Yes you're doing it right. Could be an issue with the hard drive try another one.

    Okay, will do. Quick question will files bigger than 4GB's transfer over to my FAT32 formatted hard drive cuz from the
    reading I've done those have to be split up. Just making sure before I go try and rip again.

    Thats another reason to use ISO because files over 4 gb will not fit on external while ISOs get split to be under 4 gb for each part.

    @EmulateLife Use ISO? You mean download a game? Through the internet? The whole point was to rip myself lol.
    Or am I not picking up what you're putting down? How am I supposed to rip to my external when those files can't be transferred over?
    Do I just use FTP? I mean I could but ISO? What do you mean by that?

    I don't think 4TBs is going to work correctly. 2TB or less....

    You can rip your disc to ISO. But godreborn is probably right about the max hard drive size.

    @EmulateLife I'll pick your brain about ripping my disc to ISO
    I'm gonna try and reformat my 1TB now and hope it works better than
    this current time. @godreborn thanks for your input I do have a 300GB external with no power source (btw the 1TB has a power source - if that means anything)

    Yes, you should format your hard drive to ntfs and rip all your games to iso, I've done it a lot using Irisman, works pretty well.

    That's another option, but you really don't have to mutiman can split isos. I don't use multiman or Irisman myself I use sman because of the ease of xmb integration but it uses multiman's covers. But multiman is good for ripping discs and to transfer files.

    @Eveldee I just checked out IRISMan and I don't like it it seems like it only runs OFF your USB drive I want to copy the games over to my USB hard drive and then,
    once I want to play them I want to transfer the game to my system storage and run like that. Also, can you rip anything off your PS3 with IRISMan? Even downloadable content?

    I think the main problem is mbr. mbr has a limitation of 2.2TBs I believe. the ps3 can't read gpt, only mbr.

    @godreborn Limitation? Meaning I can't hook up my 4TB I understand that. But I'm gonna give it one more shot with the 1TB tried downloading that tool that @EmulateLife suggested
    above, but I couldn't get it to install. So I just reformatted my 1TB so we'll see what happens when I pop it in this time.

    PS3 can't use any HDD bigger than 1.5TB's. Dumbass limitation that Sony put in for some reason.

    @SpiffyJUNIOR this just happens to be a 1.3TB hard drive.
    And it's official this drive just sucks it's just really really slow.
    I bought it way back when hoping I could use it again but these
    copy speeds are just atrocious.
