    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?

    The ps3 OS doesn't support NTFS.
