    [Answered] PS3 Slim Swappable Hard Drives ?

    Sponsored Links
    Is it possible to have 2 swappable hard drives formatted and attributed to 1 PS3?

    I would like to keep 3.41 on 1 drive and upgrade the second drive to allow online play... I am just unsure if the PS3 would force a format on my 3.41 drive when it was swapped back into the PS3 itself... Thanks for any help.

    You CAN have 2 (or more hard drives) for use in one PS3 but unfortunatelly NOT on different FWs.

    I believe you can't do this as the PS3 matches or pairs the mobo ID to that of the HDD. That's why you always have to format when inserting a different one.

    The firmware is not saved on the HDD. You CANT change the firmware by changing the HDD. If it were possible, it would be to easy

    Ah well it was just a thought... Thanks for the replies...

    Maybe a second PS3 is the way to go...

    Thanks again...
