[Answered] help installing 1tb ps3 hdd?
I have been trying to install a WD scorpio blue internal hdd to my slim ps3 for a while. I got it in there physically fine. When I turn on the ps3... it does not automatically start formatting.
When it asks for me to hit start and select after connecting storage media that contains update version 4.20 or later.. I get data is corrupted (8002f2c5) I know I have it on my usb flash drive correctly and have tried several different sites including Sony's for the pup file.
Any help anyone can offer would be appreciated.
usually. pin shorting 5-6 is the jumper for SATA1 protocol. but with this new SATA3 HDD, they are not meant to be compatible with PS3 since there no way you can set SATA 1 protocol.
but be note to all HDD buyers that if you plan to use it to your PS3, make sure that HDD supports SATA1 pin negotiation setting and not by auto-negotiation since PS3 had bad compatibility from any HDD with auto negotiation.
