I recently bought a “WD My Passport 1TB” with intended use for my PS3.
When I plugged it into my PS3 it doesn’t seem to recognize the device.
When I listen closely to it I can hear the disk inside start to power up and then die down, when it starts to die down again you can hear a faint beep noise, it repeats this until I disconnect it. As far as I can tell its not a power issue because the LED light on hdd flashes the same when plugged into the PS3 and my computer. I have reformatted it to FAT32 using “Acronis True Image WD edition” which was suggested by Western Digital’s help support.
I have also read about removing the VCD from the hard drive. I tried removing it using “WD Smartware Virtual CD Manager” but when i run the program and it scans for a HDD it comes up with the error saying: 'No Device Found. Please connect a WD Smartware drive to continue; then click Rescan."
Does anyone have any ideas on how to fix this problem? Any help would be greatly appreciated.
