    I have a Buffalo 1TB Drivestation with hardware encryption. When I try to connect it to my PS3 it does not give me the option of entering my password to browse my files, does anyone know a way around this? My flatmate connects his hard drive (which does not have hardware encryption) to the PS3 with no problems at all. Any ideas?

    The only way to do it is to turn off the encryption on the Buffalo. The BIOS of the PS3 isn't set up for decryption.

    The only thing I can suggest is that you contact Buffalo tech support and ask them.
