    [Answered] upgrading my ps3 fat and slim harddrives help?

    Sponsored Links
    hello everyone, i hope there is someone who can help here. i am trying to upgrade my harddrives in my ps3's to a larger size but cannot seem to get it to work. each time i try it says that the system cannot be started correctly. i have put a new drive in and it has been formatted to be compatible as fat32.

    i have connected a usb drive with the correct firmware but system says there is no compatible data..

    is it possible that a jailbroken ps3 will not start correctly if you try to upgrade the harddrive?

    can someone please help?

    If it's from the initial PS3 Firmware 3.41 release you may want to read HERE, since then Sony reissued PS3 Firmware 3.41 to fix the HDD issues though.

    Also make sure your USB drive is formatted with FAT32 and the firmware (3.41) is placed in the proper folder (in this case within PS3\UPDATE).
