    it is formatted to FAT32, I have 2 different HDD one is 60GB and one is 2TB. I have 3 different enclosures, one is USB 2.0 and one is USB 3.0 and one is the generic one that came with the Seagate drive.

    Both of there drives and all 3 of the external cases are recognized immediately by a PC. the PS3 recognizes a 32gb NTFS thumb drive instantly.

    I am looking to back up PS3, PS2 and PS1 games, it is around 750GB and trying to do this via FTP takes 40 or more hours.

    I have tried scanning for games in multiman. any help or advice would really be appreciated.

    The problem must be with enclosure.Some enclosures require their own softwares to be installed on the system to recognize the drive.Since PS3 cannot install that software or driver it does not recognizes the drive.I also had that problem but i bought a new enclosure and then my PS3 recognized the new one

    Use filezilla with ethernet connection, guide: http://wololo.net/2014/06/30/ps3-how-to-ftp-transfer-using-multiman-and-filezilla-by-raphaelligh/

    I've heard there was a rebug cfw which stopped the ps3 from locking transfer rate to 20mb/s, try googling that out.
