Help with using ONLY the USB 2.0 on a My Book 3.0/2.0


I just got the My Book Essential USB 3.0 / USB 2.0 and I’m trying to connect it to my PS3. The thing is, the PS3 doesn’t support USB 3.0 - only USE 2.0 - so I’m wondering if there’s any way to force the drive to use the USB 2.0 interface. I’ve connected a micro USB 2.0 cable to the drive but the PS3 still seems not to recognize it (works great with the PC).

The drive has to be formatted FAT32 to be used on PS3. It comes formatted NTFS.
