Connect starage media device to save destination.
The problem is not the drive, the newer external hard drives are
USB 2 / 3. the ps3 cant detect those type of drives in some cases
so the error above pops up.
The Easy fix, besides making sure the drive is fat32 formated
even if that is necessary.
The fix is to get an old USB 2.0 hub not anything related to USB 3.0
will not work.
plug in the USB 2.0 hub n to the USB Ps3 front port.
Then plug the drive in to the USB 2.0 hub and thats it.
i used a 1 TB Western Digital External drive to back up my Ps3
hope this helps some one out.
