I ordered a ps3 hdd extender and a 2TB external drive. I know that once I switch the drives out the ps3 will have to format the new drive. I'm pretty sure the fw is stored on the NAND but im concerned that after its done formatting or before, it might ask me to upgrade the firmware.
can anyone confirm or deny this? has anyone tried this before. I upgraded the original 60Gb drive to a 120gb a few years back but cannot remember if i had to upgrade the firmware.
