FAT32 can go beyond 2TB with the use of 32KB clusters, but it's generally not recommended, and I have no idea if the ps3 would even support it.
The one downside is the same for any FAT file system, the File Allocation Table keeps a record of every file and the cluster(s) it uses. If you get too many files the Allocation Table could become too big to cache, and speeds will drop.
The other downside is the 32KB clusters, two files cannot occupy the same cluster, so every file on the drive will take up a minimum of 32KB, even if the file is only a few bytes.

my brother has a 3TB HD and it work perfect..
I thought the fat32 file format system was only capable of going up to 2 TB.
If it IS possible to hook up a 3 TB HDD let me know how you do it, as I would be interested in doing so myself.

usb3 isn't going to work on a ps3
Finally, by USB HUB identified PlayStation 3,3 TB WD(USB3) external hard drive
Now the problem is
When I connect to the PlayStation 3
Only through a USB hub detection
But the reading speed data via USB hub is very slow
How do I solve this problem that does not read data quickly?
Is it a USB hub that provides the information quickly not there?
When a port is used?
My English is not good.
your hub needs a power supply.
i have a western digital my book 3tb and its formated to fat32 no problem as every thing works fine under windows 7. but when plugged into usb port on ps3 won't even power up. so i tried a hub with power supply and now powers up when plugged into ps3 but ps3 still doesn't see drive.

I think, maybe, the usb.hub you have might be confusing the ps3 relaying it's own id instead of the hd's
