So I've just formatted an external drive and plugged in into the PS3..
Works at the start but then something weird starts to happen..
Formatted to FAT32 ofc..
For Example, I go to Video and select "Display All", Go a tab to the right, and the HDD would disconnect and reconnect again..
Basically it shows up as USB but whenever I try access it, It disappears from the list and then returns a second later, Unable to even use it for anything at the moment..
EDIT: Used a 1.5m USB Cable extender and somehow it's improved, But still not 100% -_-
