formating ps3 hard drive
hi im just about to sell my 80gb hdd which came with the ps3 originally. i upgraded to 500gb so i have no use for the other one anymore. if i where to format it using the tool on the ps3 would that compleatly wipe it or just things like saves and stuff? whats the best way to do this?
you could just use PC to format the Drive
The PS3 will recognize that the hard drive you just installed will need to be formatted, and will prompt you, with confirmation, to do so. Say yes to these questions to format the new PS3 hard drive. Once the format has been completed you are ready to use the PS3 with your newer, bigger, and better hard drive. Move on to the next step.
