External Harddrive Issues
External Harddrive Issues –
So I just got a external harddrive for my PS3, I have Kmew 3.55 and am using the newest Gaia manager. The issue im having is that Fat32 has a 4FB file limit, and most of my games cant be copied over, I have heard that you could use a NTFS file system for the external but Im not sure. What do I do?
Grab an app called ps3splitter
This will scan the game dir you browse to and split all the 4gig + files, plug your Fat32 external HD and move the game to your internal.
Although if the big files are pak*.psarc files then you can unpack these with PSARC and move the unpacked dir to your external HD and the big single Psarc file is no longer needed
As far as i know there is no way to run an NTFS HD from external, although i guess this will be rectified very soon
Thanks for the respond, Is there no way to run it from the external? my internal drive is only a 40 gig.
Omg, thank you so much, GT5 works like a charm now.
i have a different problem. i also bought a 1tb external and when i tried to format it to fat32 using cmd i got an error saying the volume is too big. what should i do?
nvm figured it out

Absolutely no need to partition it at all! Just d/l this handly little app which allows you to bypass the ridiculous 32 gig windows limit and format any drive to Fat32. I am currently running a 1TB external formatted with this, no problems at all
