Backup your PS3

Has anyone performed a backup on their PS3 yet?
I was thinking I'd eventually get to it and recently tried to do it but couldn't. I was trying to backup to my external USB harddrive (laptop harddrive in USB case) but the PS3 didn't recognize it. I could back it up to my 4GB USB thumb drive (if I delete some demo games) but I have 5GB of stuff on my PS3 and can't fit it. So, anyone backup their stuff and how did you do it?

Da Bears!

I backed up my PS3 when I first got it b/c I was doing some OS stuff. Used a thumb drive, has to be formatted FAT32. If your flash drive is not formatted FAT32 that will cause problems I think.

I think my external is fat32 but its not recognized at all. I'm looking into backing up just my game saves on thumb drive, that should be good enough for now.
