[Answered] Adding a bigger PS3 Hard Drive help?
Hi I have CFW 3.55 on my ps3, How do I go about installing a new bigger HD, also is there a limit to the size a ps3 will recognize? I'll probably add a 250gb even though I'm tempted to add a 1 TeraByte HD. So how do I do it? copy the old HD to a FAT storage, then put the new HD and then what?
Thank you all in advance.
pop one out pop the other one in it will hold a 1tb hard drive as long as you get a 2.5 in hdd so it fits in metal casing or you'll kinda have to mod the case a bit. After you put it in just install cfw like normal. You'll be asked to format the new drive it may take awhile but do a complete format so you gain as much space as possible with a 1tb you'll get about 920gigs i believe that's what I have in mine.
as for save data use any usb hdd/flash drive formatted to fat 32 and copy all saves then after you install other hard drive copy all data back that's pretty much it, n yes you will have to reinstall the cfw no way around that.
