Which is better and is either noticeably faster for reading/writing? I've been searching and getting different answers. The guys at the local computer market tell me that internal is much slower to copy games from the Blu-Ray drive to the hard drive (but it's less work/more profit for them to sell me an external, which could be why). I've heard that USB is slower because it's not directly connected, as SATA is. I'm told that transferring from PC to internal is incredibly slow. I'm told that External is FAT32 and is really slow due to that. I'm told that External cannot play some games, while Internal fine with any. I'd like someone knowledgeable to clear it up. Disclaimer and added information; I'll be transferring some of my games from the original discs to make backups. I'll probably be downloading a few backups, because I've lost Disgaea 4 and Valkyrie Chronicles, among other games and my controller in a box somewhere. This is legal in my area. No piracy is intended. I do want to play around with homebrew, such as the PS3 Cloud Drive and PS2 Classics Manager.
