I replaced my 60Gig PS3 drive with a 320Gb drive a while back (was max 2.5 inch drive available at the time). I have a word of warning for you all...
I store a large number of video files on my PS3 (Mainly downloaded TV shows), all of which are setup in their own "Albums" - e.g. "Heroes", "Stargate", "The Big Bang Theory" etc.
I recently had a problem with this however (with the drive coming up to around 250gb full) where the PS3 decided to do a repair on the system database. Unfortunately this repair completely wiped all 'album' information from all the files - the end result being that all 250gigs worth of video files all lost their albums and ended up being marked as "Unknown". What a pain in the a..! (Luckily it didn't loose the actual files though!!!!!!)
Anyway, I ended up having to archive everything off to a 1Tb external WD drive and manually moved the files into correctly formatted folders!
So in conclusion:-
If you store loads of data, be prepared that you might loose the PS3 specific ALBUM info at the most inconvenient time.
Also there is a real need for SONY to improve the file options.
They need to add a "Set Album for Multiple files" type option (to accompany the "Copy Multiple" and "Delete Multiple" options if they're going to have a usable multimedia device!)
Bit off topic, but the new features I'd really like to see soon:-
1. "Set 'Album' for Multiple Files"
2. Show music files by Artist, then Album
. (I've got 20+ gigs of music and it all just gets messed up on the PS3 because you can't structure the view like you can with directories!) Or maybe some management tool similar to the Gallery tool.
