I insert a USB drive into my PS3, go to settings --> system settings --> backup utility, click through the screens, choose my USB drive... and it tells me "USB Drive is locked."
- There is no physical locking mechanism on the drive
- I've tried reformatting as FAT32
- I've tried different allocation unit sizes, as suggested here.
- The drive can be read fine by the PS3, and read/written to fine by a PC.
Information on the net is sparse - has anyone had similar problems? The USB drive is an HP.
