Default PS3 Help!

Has anyone hooked a external hard drive to the PS3 before? I can't get it to recognize the hard drive I already reformatted it to FAT32. Any idea's?

Are you replacing the hard drive in the PS3 or just hooking one up to the PS3?

Have you tried looking up guides?
How to Add an External Hard Drive to a PlayStation 3 - wikiHow

My guess is Step 6 is where you failed if your drive is formatted properly.

Thanks! That looks like the problem. The only instructions I looked up where the online book on the PS3 didn't have time to google with my daughter. The PS3 instructions said nothing about that step.

I'm guessing it worked since you didn't hop back on CFN right away?

Kinda sorta. I did get it to work but not quiet as easy as that guy had listed. His filling system isn't required and if you were to use one it can be done much more efficiently then what he listed.
