Back in the old days, I’ve got 2 pairs of 40GB IDE hard drives. A year later, I bought the new Core i7 rig which uses SATA drives instead of IDE ones. And months later, bought myself a slim 120GB PlayStation 3. I assumed that I can use those old drives for the PS3, just to copy movies and pictures (I have a 4GB flashdrive and I think it’s too small for me to copy those HD Girls’ Generation videos I collected so far). Back in Windows XP, formatting isn’t a problem. You can use either FAT32 or NTFS, or even the older FAT and FAT16. But the big problem is, Microsoft excluded that option in Windows Vista and 7, and I believe, even in the next version of Windows… I even bought an external enclosure for those harddisk and finally I’ve got a solution. Well, it’s not like there’s no other solution but I think this one’s the best.
1. Download this: fat32format
2. Extract it to C:\
3. Run > CMD
4. In the command line, type “cd…” so that it will bring you to C:\
5. type in “fat32format :” and Press Enter. Example: fat32format G: (where G is the drive letter of the external USB drive.)
6. A prompt will appear “Warning ALL data on drive ‘f’ will be lost irretrievably, are you sure (y/n)” and type “y” then press Enter.
7. It will format now, and done!!!
Just a warning. This post doesn’t have anything to do with the current PS3 exploits such as the PSJailBreak. I am against those things and you can try checking out this article if you don’t believe me, Here. Please do not practice this method so you can use those exploits. If you do that, you’re really committing a crime.
Long live PlayStation 3!!!

This is a trick I found out a month ago. Not quite new, but may help some. Ok, this is only tested and applicable for anyone who uses Internet Explorer. To those who want to download videos from Megavideo, here’s how:
1.Open your MegaVideo video in your browser and let it load fully
2.After you are done watching the video online, go to Tools -> Internet 3.Options -> Settings -> View Files (For IE)
4.Now you will get a large size file with long name and unknown type there
5.Copy and paste that file at desktop, this file is the video file in flv format
Rename it with flv extension, say e.g. MyMega.flv
That’s all and you’re all set! What you need to watch these flv videos is a player that can play .flv. VLC Media Player and Media Player Classic are some choices. Goodluck!
