Thanks man. I posted the question here cuz of your pm. I wanted to see if others have done it too. I'm going to buy the same drive.
One last question: do you have to deactivate all your accounts on your old hdd prior to switching it out then reactivate on the new one? I read on 2 other sites that the account info is actually stored somewhere else and that you dot have to deactivate anything? That you should see all accounts on your new hdd?
If you don't have any older model PS3 then you will have to go back and reactivate the accounts but they don't need to be deactivated. I did this without moving the accounts over just the save data I wanted and it all worked done once I redownloaded the games I wanted.
If you change ps3 systems though you would need to deactivate them first.
Yay, Sleeping Dogs DLC finaly coming out. BTW Is Resistance 3 in the store? I'v been tempted to buy it for months.
Resistance is not on PSN(neither is 1 or 2). If you eventually get a disc copy just remember to not delete the install data for it. (It is a bad idea just to gain around 6GBs of space.)
