i have the same problems, basically i wanted my ps3 to read my seagate 1TB external hdd. After following a step to partitions my hdd, i figured i was doing something wrong, all too late to realise.

I was following a step from the given website (http://www.wikihow.com/Add-an-External-Hard-Drive-to-a-...) and i was at step 4....

my 'file system type' was NTFS which i should right click and select "Delete Partition" or "Delete Volume" after doing this i downloaded EASEUS partition master and paritioned it without knowing already after deleting the volume...all my data's was wiped off.

I have some really important Documents and Uni work and i would like to know if there is any way of getting all of them back?

any of you think this software might help? (http://www.icare-recovery.com)

please kindly help.... Many thanks

I had hesame problem...and followed the same advice about connecting the drive to PS3. Now nothing seems to work to identify the drive and re allocate a volume. It is in device manger, but not in Disk manager. I cannot give it a new volume.

Please help.

Same as all of you I too followed that hdd convertion to FAT32 for my ps3 and accidentally deleted the drive.
And I found the solution for it.

my external HDD is seagate Go Flex 500gb


go to Computer Management> Disk Management


> then on DIsk Management below, right click on the Disk that is supposedly 'missing'
- mine was named Disk 1 and the bar was black.

> right click > then choose New Letter or something like that (it will assign a new letter drive for it so just click okay till the end.)

and it'll restore your external HDD like mine. :D 
hope this helps! :D
