Connect Hard Drive To Ps3


How do i connect my hard drive to my ps3? The internal hdd or the hdd that is inside only takes sata, while the external hdd uses the usb ports in front of the device. So when you transfer files use a usb hdd, but if you want more space to store on the ps3 then get a sata drive.

Ps3 Slim Won't Recognize Wd Usb 3.0 External Hard Drive

I've been trying for the last 3 days to connect my western digital mybook usb 3. 0 1tb external drive to my ps3 slim to no avail. I've went through *** and back so i wonder if it is even possible? Is the ps3 capable of backward compatibility with this drive?

I know many people have connected a 2. 0 usb external to a ps3 but i've googled and asked tech friends, game owners, sony ps3, wd, seagate, buffalo, adata. You name it. Yes of course i formatted the whole drive(partition)935gb into fat32 using various software programs; swissknife, acronis, partition wizard. They all show after completion that the drive was formatted to fat32. I even tried making folders; video, pictures, music and still no go. Is there something i'm missing? Is it a chipset issue or a host controller defecit on ps3's end? The funny thing is it will read my fat32 supertalent usb 3. 0 16gb flash drive so i dont know if the flash turns into a 2. 0 usb read that ps3 recognizes but it can't do that with the build of an external drive, maybe bc it's just a wd black or blue cavier sata with a controller laned into 3. 0 usb ports inserted into a tower. If anyone has had success with any of the usb 3. 0 external drives please let me know the amazing fix. I even thought there may be a difference with the usb 2. 0 and 3. 0 cables and iwould have to switch to a 2. 0 to connect to ps3. I'm not leaving any stone unturned. I contacted sony ps3 and they escalated it for the next meeting, so they say. Wd has no clue and will look into it. Seagate tech support told me right away it isn't supported but didn't say why bc i had to convey questions to the girl on the phone. Buffalo didn't know, so i contacted various retailers in canada that sell the drives to see if there was any feedback from customers or tech savvy employees. No one seems to know. Yet this could be a simple fix or it might be impossible with ps3's current setup and may be fixed if/when ps4 is released. I doubt a patch or firmware can fix this but you never know. It would be interesting to see if the ps3 will recognize a ssd in a usb 3. 0 enclosure. I have a ocz agility 2 ssd new and may try this b4 i install it with my original intention as internal for windows 7 64 bit os and media. I also bought an asus u3s6 card that comes with 2 usb 3. 0 ports. I have many people working on this even the main manager at canada computers as he is a ps3 fan and is very interested himself which is good because the more brains that inquire and trouble shoot the better the chance of a solution either soon or in the future. So once again, thanks for anyone that has had success with these drives and i'll be sure to post any information i receive.

Use Cd Drive Ide Cable To Connect Hard Drive To Mobo

Well, i'm assembling an old via computer with a 2700+ chip. I have a 40gb ide hard drive i want to connect. Right now, the cd drive is connected to the mobo with an ide cable. This same ide cable also has another female connector on it that would fit into my hard drive ide port. My question is whether i can just hook the drive right into this ide connector already on the cable that's connecting the cd drive to the mobo, or if i need to get a second individual ide cable and then connect the drive to the second ide port on my mobo. It would be much easier if i could just use this one ide cable to connect both to the same mobo port.

How Do I Connect Ps3 Through Wifi?

Answer:- you need to have the password to the network if you have a password. 1. Go to settings

2. Scroll down to network settings

3. Click internet connection settings

4. Click easy or custom. I prefer easy. 5. Click wireless

6. Click scan

7. Select your wifi network and select a security type. Most new routers come with wpa/wpa2 but older ones come with wep or none. None isn't recommended. 8. Type your password. 9. If it's successful, it will return you to the network settings page. To test it, go to internet connection test. Ps you will know if you are connected to the network because a small green light will glow (by your hdd indicator) and this will blink when you are accessing the network.

Connect Ps3 With Hp W1907v Lcd

I have a hp w1907v lcd and i want to connect my ps3 with it, is it possible?

Answer:-

Nope. The ps3's hdmi port can only connect to an hdcp-compliant monitor with a digital input jack (hdmi or dvi). Your hp w1907v is neither hdcp-compliant nor does it have digital inputs. There is a cable out there that has a signal converter chip built into the connector to connect the ps3's analog multiport to a vga monitor, but the image quality is terrible. You would be better off saving your money for an hdmi-equipped monitor.

Connect Ps3 Slim To Pc Monitor

How to connect a ps3 slim to a pc monitor with sound? How do i do this? I want to do this because i want to avoid using my old 20in sdtv and since i don't have the money for a hdtv for my basement, i figure i could just use a computer monitor i already own. It has vga and dvi with hdcp, however- what i can't figure out is how to get the sound from the ps3's hdmi cable to a pair of pc speakers. What do i have to buy to get my ps3 to display on a pc monitor, in hd quality, and get the sound to come through the pc speakers (unless there is a better way). (They are regular stereo speakers with a 3. 5mm input, i know that's poor quality but sound isn't what i'm concerned with).
