I want to connect my external hdd to my ps3 and pc at the same time, will it work?
I don't know if a PS3 has some special USB kung fu, but if you were to say you wanted to have 2 pc's share the same drive, I'd say, no way, no how. At least not at the same time. There are KVM switches that have a USB hub that can be switched with the keybd/mouse/video. That way you can share something like an external drive, but there is no way for 2 machines to access it at the same time unless you put it on a NAS server or something like that.
Great little topic.
And Nice work--thank you for sharing- for me this makes perfect sense though.
one system at a time, you cant have the same drive running via USB and E-sata at the same time.
(or any other combination you can come up with, its one system at a time)
Separate names with a comma.
