If you want to back up all the data from your Ps3 to an external WD hard drive and get the error
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.

after a few hours of digging some guy from sweeden posted the fix with the
USB 2.0 hub. if i could have found that first thing i would have been done
with the backup in no time.
