As we known, the HDD size is so little in the Bd age and the size of 2.5' gb up to 250G or 500G. So whether anyboday beat the HDD system and let us can switch the HDD or add another HDD by the internal storage bus same as the IDE bus in our PC.
If it's impossible, can we use the USB-HDD to store the Demo, Video, and so on. The Internal HDD only store the Game data.
You have to remember that even if sony made it possible to store demos and stuff on ecternal drives the load time would be lengthened. USB 2.0 can't transfer as fast as internal drives. USB 3.0 is rumored to be fast enough to keep up with internal drives but the ps3 doesn't have that technology. If you do use external drives to store media I would use it for pictures, music, and videos to save space on the internal drive for demos and game data.
But yeah you can use an internal 3.5" sata drive on a ps3 but you have to have a extension cable for the sata connection and the power connection. It would allow more dust to enter your system unless you make your own enclosure for the drive and cut a small hole out of the drive bay cover.
THanx barrybarryk for reply.. I didn't know that we have to look for 9.5mm height needed as I thought all harddisc are the same for 2.5inch.
I need to change my Internal PS3 HDD to higher capacity as the 80GB hdd is too small for me. Btw what brand did you recommended for PS3 SeT? I was thinking to get WD or Hitachi but not confirm as I think Samsung aso not bad.
Btw just to check once I got the new HDD 750GB , I put inside my PS3 SET, must I format to NTFS or FAT32?
