Biggest, Best Hard Drive
I am looking to buy the best performing Hard Drive that can hold the most space also while hopefully being compatible with my modded PS3 and Xbox360.
I had my eye on Canvio 3TB external desk top made by Toshiba since
i saw it on the HDD compatible list and it's the only FAT32 hard drive.
Any better suggestions? I am very new to this and not sure exactly what I should be looking for.
EDIT: Apparently FAT32 doesn't work well with xbox/ps3 games due to their file sizes which make NTFS better. Does anyone know much about that? What makes FAT32 better or worse than NTFS for playing Wii back-ups?
Not really all that much as far as I know. Fat32 is recommended pretty much because it enables USB Loading GC games.
Am I able to format part of a hard drive to FAT32 and the rest NTFS to make it compatible with all consoles?

Game size isn't an issue, you add the games to the drive with Wii Backup Manager which do all the work for you. If a game is bigger than the 4gb limit for fat32 it will be split into multiple WBFS files which you USB Loader will read automatically.
If you wish you can create a second partition so your drive has 1 fat32 and 1 ntfs.
