PS USB - external 2TB hard disk support

Hi,

In one of our design, we want to include the PS USB in host mode to connect an external Hard disk of 2TB size.

So I was wondering whether the PS USB will support the large size?

Has anyone tested this interface ? Please let me know. Thanks in advaace.

 

Thanks & Regards,

Nanjunda M

Hi @nanjundams. 

 

it will support, the size limition only depends on what file system you are using it,

like fat32 only allows 4 GB max file size, ext32 allows 2TB i guess.

Not verified the same as far as i know.

 

Thanks & Regards

Hi Aravind,

 

Does it support NTFS file format? Since most of the Hard-disks come in the NTFS format.

 

Thanks & Regards,

Hi @nanjundams. 

 

If you use the following fuse-ntfs-3g from userspace, you can mount NTFS partition.

Best regards,
