Hi All,

Been reading some posts on external drives and this is what I was looking to do and the product I am looking at:

Any suggestions would be appreciated.

I'm looking at buying a 500GB external Hard Drive to back up and catolog my Blu Ray movies?

Also, if anyone might might know, could the drive be taken to a friends house who has an HTPC or PS3 and watch a movie there also without having to bring my original disk?

Here are the specs for the drive I am considering:

Data Buffer 8MB
Included In Box AC Adapter, Hi-Speed USB Cable, Software
Interface High-Speed USB 2.0 (USB 1.1 Compatible)

PC/Mac PC/Mac
Product Dimensions 11.2(W) x 3.5(H) x 18.8(D) cm
Product Weight 0.95 kg
Rotations Per Minute (RPM) 7200RPM
Software Included Yes
Storage Capacity 500GB
System Requirements PC Or Mac with Built-In USB Interface
Type of Media External Hard Drive
As far as I'm aware the PS3 won't play the blu-ray structure from a harddrive
it doesn't support ntfs so makes it difficult to put a file larger than 4gb onto the drive

Don't want to sound ignorant (just new) but are you referring to the ps3 not supporting ntfs or the external hdd?
