So, who has upgraded the HDD in the PS3? (It appears Best Buy was clearancing some 2.5" SATA drives...and I have gift cards to burn there).
A few links about upgrading:
A few questions:
- Was it easy? Yes
- How do you transfer files over? Either use the PS3 backup utility (will need an external drive that is FAT32 and 32GB or larger) or copy files over individually to an external HDD or USB Thumb Drive or Flash Memory.
- How do you do it? See tutorials above
- What size drive do I need? 2.5" SATA HDD (Notebook HDD). 5400 RPM is stock, but 7200 will work...although, it may cause more heat.
- Any other tidbits? Have fun
I will TRY to keep the thread updated with good information.
