    why doesn't my icy box work on ps3...

    is it purely because its ntfs partition drive?
    as i don't reckon its because its a 1tb drive seeing as people have happily used they in ps3's natively plugged into the actuall sata...
    is there any way i can get around this or should i say create a second partition a fat32 one and then say drag and drop media to that that i want to play on the ps3 and plug it in and do it that way?
    would that work?
    cause i usually stream stuff to the ps3 but tversity has a well known problem of just stopping playback half way through for an unknown reason.
    and its not the bandwidth or anything like that as it was playing 1080p fine for hour+ then just stopped working as per the glitch...

    iirc the ps3 will ONLY read the first partition of a FAT (i.e. standard windows) partition table, and that partition MUST be FAT32
