I finally received my WD My Book Essential 640GB in the post today so that I could back up my MacBook and be able to watch the media files on my PS3.
When I plugged it into my Mac, it automatically went into Time Machine mode and I accidentally accepted the erase option of all the original files on the hard drive even though I didn’t want to use the storage for Time Machine back-up. Doh!
So now, when I drag and drop onto the HD and plug it into my PS3, it doesn’t show. A few Google searches has lead me to believe that the HD needs to be formatted for FAT32 however when I followed the appropriate instructions to do so, it would seem I need a PC and I only have my MacBook.
Any advice? I have a MacBook, a My Book, a PS3 Slim, a whole bunch of cables and that’s about it.
