Upgrading PS3 from 60gb to 500gb
Upgrading PS3 from 60gb to 500gb –
I was hoping that someone could tell me whether it is possible to swap the original 60gb hdd with a 500gb hdd, then put the 60gb hdd in an external enclosure and transfer the data from the external hdd to the ps3? Or do i still have to format the 500gb hdd to FAT32?
Any help would be most appreciated.
I don't think so, unless you use Multiman or something along those lines.
What you can do, though, is use the XMB to back up your data onto an external drive, then swap the hard drive and restore the data from the XMB. So, if you have 1 more external hard drive it'd work no problem.
Bugger! So you can't copy from the external hdd to the ps3 hdd? My thinking was that instead of buying a new hdd and an external hdd, i could just buy the new hdd and an enclosure, swap the drives so that i would end up with a 60gb external hdd. Does this mean that you have to back up regardless, if you want to keep all your existing data?
Thanks for the quick response, much appreciated
What do you need so much space for anyway? unless you use it for media playing, cause there isnt that many games worth playing, unfortunately.
Though you could copy straight over, you'd have to use Multiman's file browser to do so. I'm not entirely sure that would work. Sorry. See if a friend has an HDD you can borrow to back up your data before hand, or just say goodbye to it.
Thanks for the help ZacUAX

ps3 disk defragmentaion?
ps3 disk defragmentaion? –
Didn't really know where to ask this question..... With all the stuff that goes in & out the ps3's hard drive. How does the file system manage defragmentation? there's the rebuild database option, but I doubt it defrags anything more like reset the file tables (so to speak) ughh the ps3 browser sucks azz netscape 5.1 did better in my opinion lol
