what format is the ps3 file system? –
i know the ps3 can read fat32 but is there a way we can find out what file system the ps3 uses and put it onto a external. cuz u can add more than 4 gigs of data on the internal but the external has that 4 gig restriction. almost like how the wii has wbfs is there something we could get the ps3 to be more compatible with?
Sony proprietary file system that is encrypted. No computer OS can R/W to them at this time. The best you can do it gigabit ethernet connection and FTP things back and forth or transfer files using an external USB drive between the PC and PS3.

so im assuming theres a fdisk type program in the firmware to make partition on internal, is the ps3 open enough to alter that to format a hard drive externally (then mount it as internal and read that way).
I cant see why not but hey im no coder (bit of poking when i was about 7 on spectrum lol)
with all the things we are now able to do with the ps3 is it possible to get the format utility in the ps3 system menu to format the externals the same way it would format the internal. just add some code to that part of the software and repoint it to the usb?
