    I'm running PS3HEN right now and I want to be able to backup all or most of my PS3 games. I have close to 100. I'm looking at getting a 4TB external HDD, but I don't know if that will be compatible with the PS3 or if it will be recognizable by multiMAN or any of the other managers. Is there a limit to the hard drive I can use?

    Awesome. Do you happen to know the reason why that's the max?

    the ps3 is old so the hardware doesn't permit you to use external hdd over that limit else it won't recognize it.

    external max is 2TB, since that's the largest mbr will allow. yeah, it is old tech. the internal hdd is a bit problematic. 1TB is what I'd suggest. anything higher can cause problems, but I have heard of people using larger. I think it depends on the make/model. this thing I believe is a deliberate limitation by sony.
