Alright, I'll be nice again..

On the HDD are the albums etc all in separate folders etc? When you plug it into the PS3 does it show that the drive is there but when you open it there is nothing listed? If so select the HDD in either the Movie/Music bit on the XMB press triangle and choose select all (I think) and it should show all the folders. The PS3 only shows the root of the drive by default.

I have Divx video files and Music on my HDD and they all play fine.

The ps3 is very tempremental with s**t like this, you need to do the following.

Open the External HDD on your computer and make 4 folders, PS3, PICTURES, MUSIC, VIDEO, all in capitals. This has to be done so the ps3 can recognise the folders. When you turn your ps3 on you should get an notice on your pc saying "media server found" or something like that. If not, go to pictures on your ps3 and search for a media server, you should be able to find your pc. Then its a case of looking through all your media on your pc via the ps3.

Alternatively you could try and plug the HDD into the ps3, hover over it, press Triangle and select "all media" (or something like that). That will show all the media files on the disk that the console can read.
