Demanding exFAT support, removing 4GB limit for USB drives (ppl please sign under)

22 Replies 8,667 Views Created 15-11-2010

Hey Sony,

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-licenses-exfat-file-system-to-sony-others.html

 

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.

Is there a single feature requested in this forum that has eventually been implemented by Sony. I started a thread on FLAC support some three years ago and obviously nothing happened.

 

Can you come up with a single feature in the PS3 that Sony implemented to satisfy a customer request? Honestly I can't think of one.
