test back on PC to see if it is indeed fat32.

Is it 3.5 ? you need psu. You may even need to power some 2.5

also try partitioning the drive into 2 partitions of equal size to see if the drive then is recognised

Lol. I know what you mean. I did read somewhere online that sony released an update and people were having trouble installing hard drives. May be something online about it. Was about 3months ago me thinks.

Up pops "USB Device (WD something I think)" under the Video/Music & Photo tabs. Plus a few more minor ones (like Saved Data etc...)
Just like most other USB storage devices.
