portable hard-drive

2 Replies 240 Views Created 11-05-2008

I though I should be able to put files (videos, films etc) on a portable hard-drive and then connect it to PS3 and then view the movie.

But when I connect my hard-drive to PS3 via USB nothing happens, the PS3 do not find my portable drive.

 

Any idea what I´m doing wrong?

Any specific foldernames that I need to use maybe?

If it is the right format and it's still not working, try the triangle and 'view or files' or whatever it is to show all the files that wont show because they're not in appropriate folders or whatever.
