If a game black screens, you could always try turning it into a PSN title. Hopefully sometime this year someone will figure out how to decrypt NPDRM EBOOT.BIN files so we can use updates in the PSN titles. Some games just don't work, though those games are rare and getting rarer with users like DeanK furthering patching Lv2 research. By the time your drive dies, there will probably be a work around.
Opps, you did put in the FW, sorry I missed it.

Hope is the first step on the road to disappointment.
