So I'm trying to formatt my hard drive so I can use it with my ps3. I am using swissknife and I keep getting the message Read/write error when I try and create a new partition. Any advice?

I know it sounds simple but some ps3's can only read from port 1. I don't know why but I got told it a while ago. Also try pressing triangle and a display all menu opens you should be able to access most files through there. Hope that helps, man!

The problem is more the formatting the hard drive so I can acctually add stuff to the drive.

What kind of format is the drive-FAT32 or NTFS? That might be the issue, but my experience with external HDs has been with my PC and they are pre-formatted already no matter what the package says.
