    i have an external hard drive (60gb) and would like to know how to set it up. I put my music/movies and pictures on the hard drive and it never shows up. Although when i do put the hard drive in my ps3 does show the loading sign on the top right corner. So what am i doing wrong? is there certain folders these files belong in? i also ehard something about i need to format it in fat32 or soemthing like that? If so how can i do that? Also what video formats does the ps3 support? sorry i just bought my ps3 a week ago and dont know much about it.
    Thanks alot

    Are you seeing the hard drive pop up in the XMB, if so, click on it and hit triangle, then hit "display all".. If the drive is not showing up at all, did you format it to fat??..

    I used Partion Magic.... you should be able to connect it to your PC and format using windows.. Its been a while since I did though.. Just make sure you format to Fat..
