    has anyone managed to get a usb hard drive thats say 4tb to work on PS TV/Vita tv? i tried many methods, formatting it all converting it into mbr, and having one primary, active fat32 partition. didnt work. thing is I have 2 4 tb drives that i want to get one to work, evene if i can only use even as little as 500gb. If anyones got tips on the partitioning or formatting of the drives in this case, let me know! it's funny i have two useless 4tb drives but nothing smaller i could use. I always bought bigger sizes because i use alot of data and now its biting me in the butt

    Hi,

    I got a 2TB one working on my PSTV, you need to zzblankimg the drive (like with SD2Vita), then format it ex fat, I used 64kb cluster size (I am not certain which is correct for such a large drive)

    You may need a USB Y cable to power the drive if it does not have it's own seperate power supply - the PSTV will not be able to supply the power it requires.

    It just involves writing zeros to the beginning of the hard drive to get rid of any hidden partitions, MBR/GPT etc.

    Did it work for you?
