    I have an external hard drive with a few .iso files on it, and I want to watch them using my PS3, my question is will the Playstation recognise and allow me to play the files from and externanal hard drive? If not what is the easiest way to get the files to play on Sony's magic box?

    No, it won't recognise ISO files.

    You would have to extract them and copy over the individual .vob files, or stream the ISO via your PC using PS3 Media Server (I'm sure PS3MS can handle ISO streaming - but not 100% sure!)
