Hey guys I was wondering... –
Is it worth it to convert my external HDD to NTFS from FAT32 to bypass the <4GB Limit? Game managers won't be able to play from them though right? I will only be able to copy to internal HDD?
Here's the thing, I tried this with Killzone 3. I partitioned my external HDD with 80 gb of NTFS. The PS3 read the files on there no problem, but when I tried to boot Killzone 3 it would just black screen with multiman. So - I tried to file transfer using multiman, and the reason why it didn't work is because it read the NTFS format but NOT the 9GB file that refused to transfer that way.
In the end it still seems like a "we almost have it" kinda deal. It reads NTFS but not files larger than 4gb.
The backup manager are made right now to just "notice" ntfs. But it can't actually utilize it. In order for that to happen, the ps3's library would have to be updated to support ntfs. So the only way to get around the 4gb limit is to use a file splitter to make the files 1gb each. Then use Rogero or multiMAN to copy them to the internal HDD and it will combine them back together.
