Yesterday i bought a WD My Book Essential 1 TB and i immediately got some problems.
I wanted to use this drive for mp3, movies etc. for my PS3. So i formatted the drive into FAT32(which PS3 requires), but somehow it can’t find the drive. So i was thinking i was doing something wrong. But when i was trying to fix the problem there were solutions by updating the firmware and disable VCD.
And when i was doing that, both the Smartwareprogram and the Firmware-updater-program could’t find my drive and gave the error;‘No Drive Found’ (of course i plugged it in correctly) and i’m wondering why?
It’s not that i think the firmware has to be updated, it’s no necessary it’s brand new. But i do came across the problem of not recognizing the drive by the PS3, smartware-program and firmware-updater.
So when that’s fixed i think my PS3 will recognize the drive too.
