    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?

    There aren't any WII game back-ups too big for a FAT32?

    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.
