    My PS TV won't recognize anything other than a 2 GB Memorex stick. I've got a 32 GB Sandisk Cruzer and a 60 GB external drive I took out of a PS3. I've tried formatting them as FAT32 and exFAT, and neither worked. Help?

    Umm i dunno, maybe try blowing in the contacts slot? Or cleaning it? Maybe is not compatible due to not enough power?

    The 32 GB is a flash drive. Doesn't need external power, though.

    I forgot
    Not all devices work, it's entirely possible the things you're using simply aren't compatible. Even people with the same flash drives have had issues connecting while others don't.

    I got the external drive working. The thinner power cable was plugged into a USB adapter, but that wasn't plugged in all the way. Seems it doesn't like my power strip and doesn't stay on until I used an extension cord.
