Works as a USB loader for the Wii.

Approx 7p per GB

There is no on/off switch on this model.

How do you set that up? do you need to have an older wii firmware or anything?

Good deal, I wanted two 500gb drives rather than a 1tb so that I could have some kind of backup to the backup but I could never find 500gb drives this cheap. Thanks, H + R.

Great Deal! I'm finding it a problem entering the voucher code, it says its not valid. I tried copying and pasting and also tried typing it in.

Very tempted to use this to transfer stuff from my laptop to PS3 (TV and films etc). I take it the PS3 would recognise this drive via USB?

Have you tried the PS3 media server program? if you install it on your Laptop it will stream anything to your PS3 wirelessly or via a wired connection. it saved me a fortune in burning discs etc and if you have this hard drive attached to your laptop, which would recognise it, you could then just stream it all to your PS3.

Sorry for that, other members have corrected me. :oops:

I don't know if the PS3 will recognise it out of the box, as I don't know what they are formatted as to start with. I will be picking mine up later, and will try and see.

No, I have it working on Firmware 4.1.
I don't have the links as I am on my work PC, but I used some tutorials on gba.temp to set mine up.

Then you have to have your laptop on don't you?
I have never bothered to stream with my PS3, I just stick them on a USB stick and copy them to it.

I have that already, but I have a lot of stuff stored on DVD that I then have to load onto the PS3. I'd rather just put it on an external drive that I can plug into the ps3.

Thanks, would appreciate that before I collect mine. Bit of a trek :thumbsup:

Yeah that's the only downside I have found but not too much of an issue for myself as the PC rarely gets to be turned off! I haven't used it wirelessly though as I have homeplugs, but the media server encodes pretty much everything for the PS3 (and 360 from what I've heard). Thought this option may then remove the issue of having to format the Hard drive to FAT32 format as that is all the PS3 recognises and windows doesn't let you format a 500Gb drive to FAT32 so you need some other utilities

Cheers for the heads up on the Wii usb loader I'm spending the next few hours on google :thumbsup:

Ahh I get you, thought this may have saved you a few discs etc. I've got an external HDD plugged into my PC and stream to the PS3 from that to save with the formatting to FAT32 issues etc

I only have £36 on me, if they'll let me pay some now, and some when I get paid next, I would prefer the 1TB drive even though 500GB is more than I need for what I want it for.

If £36 is all you've got I don't think you should spent it on a hard drive, lol.

Just realised that I am getting the 320GB version(incidentally worse value for money), as I want to use this for my Wii as a USB loader.
I can try the 320GB with my PS3, as I would assume that they would be formatted the same.

Even if it is formatted differently to what the PS3 uses, it's only a case of reformatting it.

I am picking mine up now, but I know I won't get to try it until after 9pm, as I have loads of errands to do.

I got one of these 2 weeks ago(500GB) but it was partitioned and formatted to 2 different formats immediately.
#28
I can confirm that the 320GB version is formatted to NTFS, the PS3 needs it to be formatted to FAT32 for it to be read as an external HD.

Sure, I don't know if you can use Windows to do it, I use a program called EASEUS to do mine, or another popular one is "Swiss Knife".

to format fat 32 open up the command prompt on any version of windows inc vista and enter the command format drive /fs:fat32 just like use to do in the bad old days of MS DOS ie before windows no extra software needed the fat 32 limitation is imposed by windows(vist and XP) not really a fat 32 limitation doing it on DOS command line bypasses windows ps dont forget to enter the drive letter of drive dont wont to be formating C: drive DOS wont look after you like windows
