I’m not sure if its possible, but i have an external HD for my computer that i use for storing movies I download, and i want to get those movies uploaded to the ps3 so i can play them on my big screen. The external HD is western device brand, i believe its 860gigs. I also have a flash drive, only 3 gigs, which i havne’t tried to use yet, but i’de prefer to figure out a way to get the external HD to work, or to at least read so i can upload my movies.
So when i plug it in it just doesn’t show up on any of the options in teh PS3 menu. Nothing under movies, nothing under music, nothing under video. now I heard you jsut need to set it up to be WD>PS3>movies>”movie files” but its pretty much set up that way and i dont get any reading. any idea on how i can get this to work? do PS3’s not work with externals? cause i heard they did. Do i jsut not have the right brand to be compatible? any tips on how to get this to work will be helpful. There will be ten points in it for whoever can help me crack the problem i’m having
