How to partition and format newly bought ext. HDD
How to partition and format newly bought ext. HDD –
I just purchased an Iomega 1TB 3.5" ext. HDD. The filesystem is pre-formatted with NTFS. I'm using WinXP. Is there a tutorial on how I can accomplish the following:
- split the Iomega into 2 partitions
- format one of the partitions to FAT32 system
- make the FAT32 partition the primary drive that the PS3 looks for (is this step necessary?)
I don't have any tools/utilities and not sure which ones I should download off of the internet.
SWISSKNIFE is popular. For $10, PREMIUM offers you use of hard drives up to 2tb. You can download a trial, and see what they have to offer.

Well, I canīt really remember why or where it came from, I am only 24 so I am sure I didnīt use it myself "back in the days", but who cares, some more years and it might be worth a furtune !
