Taking apart a Western Digital My Passport External Hard Drive & My Dissapointment

I decided to remove the 500gb hard drive from my Western Digital My Passport External Hard Drive & install it in a laptop, replacing it with a 250gb drive I had laying around .  First I went in search of where they hid the screws, they where not under the little rubber stick on pieces or under the bar code sticker like normal .

USB PS3 External Hard Drive Continued...

USB PS3 External Hard Drive Continued...  Some users are having issues with the standard command line fat32 format so i found an alternative wich worked perfectly for me on a 500gb Western Digital My Passport . You first need to download the program fat32format from the end of the post...

If the standard cmd line format didn't work don't worry, just download the fat32format utility. I placed mine in the root of my c:\\    drive.  Then click the "Start Orb" , select "run" and type "cmd" into the box. Once inside the command prompt follow these steps

Full Size
1. type "cd c://" then hit "enter" on the keyboard
2. now type "fat32format ?:"      where ? is the letter assigned to your unpartitioned hard drive
3. when prompted to continue, all data will be erased, blah, blah, blah                 hit "y" on the keyboard
4. sit back it can take a little while to complete depending on the size of the hard drive & yo…

Format your own PS3 USB Hard Drive using command line in Windows 7

How to prepare a external usb hard drive for use with your PS3 .

First you need a hard drive ( I used a 2.5in 60gb drive pulled from a laptop + USB to SATA/IDE Connector Cable Set ) . I did this just for testing I strongly recommend you purchase an external case for your drive or purchase a prepackaged unit

.  Go ahead and load up Windows then attach your hard drive , now Hit the Windows/Start Button -> type cmd.exe in the search box -> press Ctrl+Shift+Enter to get an Administrator Command Line. If prompted, press Yes or enter administrative credentials in the UAC pop-up box.
At the command line prompt, enter

format <drive letter>:/FS:FAT32For a list of all command options, enterhelp formatWindows 2000 and later have an artificial limitation in formatting FAT32
partitions greater than 32GB (though they will mount any valid FAT32
partition). Check for part 2, for anyone that couldn't get this working.

PayPal App allows photographing paper checks for deposit

PayPal App allows photographing paper checks for deposit !
"We’ve already discussed how Chase customers can deposit checks to their account by photographing the front and back of them, and it would appear that PayPal users are getting a similar bonus.

The simple and free app uses the iPhone’s camera for the photographing, and then the user can send them away digitally. My source says that it will probably take about six days before the user sees the money in his or her account.



This leads to the question of whether or PayPal users ever see a check. I know most of my funds come in PayPal form and I hardly ever see one."
