    Partition mybook for ps3 and mac
    Hey guys,

    I just picked up a 1tb mybook and I'm using on my mac for time machine so I have a backup. Buy my ps3 wont recognize these files because it doesn't use fat32.

    Can I partition the external hard drive for my mac and ps3? Say like 500gb for mac, and 500gb in fat32 format for ps3? And then be able to drag files I want to the ps3 partition to load on my ps3? This would be a lot easier than trying to use my mac as a media server to transfer files.

    Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!

    Yes, you can partition the drive and format each partition as you want.
    I cannot be held responsible for the things that come out of my mouth.
    In the Windows world, most everything folks don't understand is called a virus.

    Go to Applications>Utilities>Disk Utility
    Then click on your hard drive that you want to partition and there should be a tab that says "partition." Then decide how many partitions and format. Hope this helps
