The PS3 reads USB drives formatted to FAT32. NTFS won't work, so make sure to format your drive correctly!

Just go with FAT32. PS3 and NTFS are not friends.

From my experience, FAT32 is the way to go for PS3. NTFS won't be recognized.

You'll need to format your USB drive to FAT32 for the PS3 to read it. It's the only format it supports.
