My understanding is that Sony uses a customized ext* filesystem for their drives.

Just wanted to post that I got my 750gb drive from the 'egg last night (ordered on Sunday night).

All these years I had been leery of upgrading, and was almost about to buy a new 320gb PS3 (I have 2 ps3's in my house, one for basement 3d tv, and one for upstairs). I upgraded my "fat" ps3, due to the extra USB ports, backward ps2 capability. My slim is a 160gb model I think, so I will do that one next time I see a smoking deal.

I have to say, the whole thing took me less than 5 minutes to do (open package, remove drive, install new drive, format).

If you were on the fence because you didnt want to open your PS3 or for what ever reason, I just want to stress how easy this was. I now have 730GB more than I did before, and I love it!

My big problem now, is downloading all 685 PSN items I have acquired throughout my PS ownership. (Games, themes, avatars, ect). I have a MASSIVE collection of PSN content. It will take me about a week of downloading I bet. I cant wait to try and fill this sucker up!
