Hey guys, here’s my situation.
A few days ago, I accidently dropped my WD Passport drive and it stopped working. After hours of failing to recover the data, I decided to format the hard drive instead. However, since then I couldn’t get my PS3 to read it, so I did some research and found that it only reads FAT32 drives.
I downloaded and used the WD FAT32 Formatter to format it back to it’s original factory FAT32 partition, but now it can’t be read on my computer. Everytime I try to open it, I get this message.
“The disk in Drive D is not formatted. Do you want to format now?”
Thus, I am stuck in a loop. When I format it on my computer, my PS3 won’t read it. If I format it to FAT32, my computer won’t read it.
Any ideas on what I should do?
