Why PS3 still does not support exFAT, which is now default FS format for external USB drives in Windows, it is also supported by Mac OS X now. And finally this FS format removes 4GB limit, which is really painful if you want to playback any HD video content (like one made by Sony camera) taking longer than 1h.
I just found the news stating that MS granted you license for using exFAT: http://www.techspot.com/news/37297-microsoft-licen
So this is just lack of will from you for adding support for the firmware. Just please try to search for "exFAT" on these forums, you will find so many people complaining.
To everyone wanting exFAT support. Please sign under this post.
Pain in the butt this is, limited to 4GB on ext HDD in 2010, what the heck. Family in South Africa sent media with HD film on it, cant transfer to fat32 drive as it is 11GB. Come on SONY, get real, 4GB is just not enough, update firmware to support exfat and make many people very happy.More people with HD cams than 3D televisions !!!
It's a FILE size limit. 4GB is the largest file you can have on FAT32.
i have an 300 gig external hdd formated to fat 32 use this program EASEUS partition
The 4GB limit is in reference to the maximum file size that can be stored on a FAT32 formatted drive. Using exFAT would resolve this issue as its maximum file size is 10 billion GB (roughly) and is compatible with both Mac OS X and MS Windows
I support your call, but I don't have very many files that are 4GB in size, the only one I could think of would be a very good quality blu-ray.
I definitely agree!
I have wanted this feature ever since I got my PS3 (one of the original 60Gig models)
Didn't have a reason to post to the forum before now. This is inaugural post worthy.
Yep, you got my support!!!!
Been dealing with this problem for a while...:(
SO COME ON SONY... Hurry and give us what we all been waiting for.... Please... :$
Best option for now is to hook up my HDD's (exfat & HFS+) to my mac en stream with ethernet (Homeplug Sitecom) to my PS3 (MediaServer)
I'm on board with this, too.
ExFAT is the perfect filesystem for external drives. It's OS-agnostic and will work fine with Windows, MacOS, Linux, etc. with no 3rd party plugins needed.
There's no reason why a modern console, *ahem* "ENTERTAINMENT SYSTEM" even, should only support external media with an archaic 4GB filesize cap! If we can't get HFS+ or NTFS, at least give us this. Actually, preferably give us this.
It's 2011. Wake up.
i use both a 8GB and a 16GB usb sticks. copy alot from play tv so im well away of the 4GB limit lucky that most movies are only around 3 half gig so most of the time its fine but some very long movies just dont work just get one of the error codes.
i cant see sony allow the exFAT as this could leave to more games being hacked & copyed more easyer.
no one should have any problem with a hd as this runs from a sata. this hits FAT/USB copy problem.
Yes, Sony, how about it?
I would like to backup my 320G PS3 system and user data to my 400G WD external drive for safe keeping but I can't because you only recognize FAT32 formated external drives, therefore it is impossible for me to back up my PS3 320G hard drive data! What is your priority focus Sony? It certainly isn't the needs of your long term loyal customers!
Come on, Sony, get with it and leave the stone age and join the rest of us living in the technology of the 21st Century. Asurring the safety of your customer's data is not too much to ask. Provide a PS3 update that will remove the blinders from off of the PS3 console in order that it may handle exFAT external hard drives!
Please! For goodness sake is this really beyond your technical ability to do? Come on guys do you really think we are all that stupid!??
