32gb USB stick showing as 8gb when in PS3


Novice Member

I have 32gb worth of media on a USB stick (FAT32) and it all plays fine on my PC.

However, when I put it in my PS3 Slim, it shows as 7.something gig and only some of the files are visible. This is after pressing triangle -> display all.

Does anyone have any idea how to resolve this? The files that I can see play just fine.

Dumb question.. are they all the same type of files? I had the same problem till I realized a couple diff file types and certain media types wont play over a certain file size. So check the file size some wont play over 2 or 3 gigs i believe.
