i am not very computer literate, so please be patient with me. The HD works fine with my laptop, but when I plug it into my PS3 usb port, it does not register any thing on the tv screen, so I cannot watch any films on the HD as no files are showing for me to access
The Passport comes NTFS; PS3’s don’t support NTFS. You need to format the drive to a file system your PS3 understands (FAT32), which will limit what the device can do on Windows (No more automatic backups and won’t take files larger than 4GB).
Many thanks for your reply to my query about my WD passport not working with the ps3, I have now purchased a 32GB flash drive, and I am now copying films & music etc from the WD drive to the flash drive which works just fine.
Again many thanks for the information it was very much appreciated
