  1. PS3 recognize almost all USB accessories even mouse and keyboard or USB hub if you need more USB ports. Yes, you can connect ANY external HD. Or if you want, you can set it up to to detect your PCs HD by downloading and installing (on your PC) the Free TVersity Media Server. Just google “TVersity for PS3” and look for the download site. Once installed, your PS3 will automatically detect it. just go to any media folders (photos, video or music) on the XMB.
