I am considering upgrading my 60gb hard drive to a 500gb hard drive. I am currently using 55gb of the available 60gb. So far all I really know is that it needs to be a 2.5" SATA 5400 RPM. I was wondering if anybody has any tips?
I also read that you can use the new hard drive, an enclosure (for making an internal HD into an external HD), the old HD, and a computer to perform the back-up of info and the re-installation of all the saved stuff. Here's how I understand it:
You take the new HD and install it inside the enclosure to make it into an external HD. You hook it up (via USB) to the computer to format it as FAT32. You can then hook it up (via USB) to the PS3. Run the back-up utility from the PS3. Once finished, you hook the HD back up to the computer and save all the data to the computer.
Next, making sure all wires are disconnected from the PS3, you uninstall the old HD. Remove the new HD from the enclosure and install it inside the PS3. The PS3 should now be operational with the new HD.
Then install the old HD into the enclosure and hook it up to the computer and save all the data onto the HD. You can then go into the back up utility on the PS3 and reinstall all the data.
Has anybody tried this?
