Recommend an internal drive
Recommend an internal drive –
I have a 2TB external, but after failing so many times trying to extract PSARC files, I've decided to keep the internal-only games on the internal drive. Can someone recommend a decent internal drive? I only need about 500gb, since I'm only using it for games that only work internaly. 5400rpm, of course. I'm hearing that some hard drives actually slow down the PS3, so has anyone had any good experiences with particular drives?
I'd prefer if it's something I can get on Amazon, as I have Amazon Prime, and I don't see that particular drive on there. Would I be able to find an equivalent Samsung 2.5" that's good for the PS3 on Amazon though?
Yeh. Just go for any 5400rpm drive with a 8mb cache
My bad. Mine is called Spinpoint not Spinrite
This one I got...
Samsung SpinPoint HM500JI M7 2.5" 500 GB Internal Hard Drive - 5400 rpm - 8 MB - SATA (HM500JI)
Good drive IMHO for PS3. Good value too
What is the maximum capacity supported? I was thinking on buying a 2.5" of 1TB, would it be ok?
the 1TB hdd it too thick to fit in the ps3. max is 500gb Obviously make sure its SATA.

i'm useing HDD Mobile SATA 2 320GB WD Scorpio Blue 5400rpm, 8MB, 3200BEVT
works perfect so far,no lag or anything
from what i have seen before WD drives are recommended for ps3
@Luriden: It'll work via FTP but you have to create the save files first on the new HDD. For example if you had 5 save slots used for a game, you have to backup those 5, put in the new HDD, start the game, save something onto those 5 slots and then replace the files with your backup via FTP.
At least that's how it worked for me.
Another method would be a full system backup.
Btw, this is mine: Samsung SpinPoint M7E HM321HI 320GB
