Hello All, I'm trying to play movies on my PS3 through either a USB Thumb Drive or USB-powered external hard drive and am having no luck with the PS3 recognizing either. I have done some research on the net and can't get anything to work. First I tried a Sandisk USB drive. When I tried to move the file over from my computer to the thumb drive it said it was too large. I read on the net that I needed to re-format the thumb drive to NTFS to move a large file, mine is 4gb so I did that and copied the movie to the thumb drive, put it in the PS3 didn't show up. Read on the net that Sandisk has their own formatting or something that could cause the PS3 not to recognize it. So I tried a store-brand 8gb USB, same deal didn't recognize it. Some people on the internet say PS3 will only recognize FAT32 formatted devices so that led to my next try. I had an empty Seagate external hard drive laying around so I thought I would try it. When I plugged it into my computer it said it needed to be formatted. My only two options were NTFS or exFAT. I chose exFAT and set the allocation unit size to default allocation size, formatted it, copied the movie over, plugged it into the PS3 same deal, didn't recognize it. It should be mentioned that on both thumb drives and the external HDD I created a folder in the root named video because I saw on a youtube video that is necessary. I'm lost at this point and frustrated. Can anyone provide some insight or suggestions on what I should do next? Thanks!
