Updating ps3 hdd

posted by | Leave a comment

Your choice of replacement hard drive must be no thicker than 9.5mm, otherwise it won’t fit in the hard drive enclosure within the PS4.

That does limit your options somewhat, especially if you’re looking for a 2TB hard drive.

The PS3's original hard drive is a 20, or 60 GB SATA laptop hard drive rated at 5400 RPM, a similar speed replacement is recommended. With the new hard drive securely in place, simply re-secure the one screw to the carriage and place the HDD cover plate back on the side of the PS3. Once you have reconnected all of the cables, such as power, video, HDMI (everything you normally use when you play on your PS3) you can turn the power on.

Be sure to re-secure the new hard drive in the exact location the old hard drive was on the carriage, and secure it with all four screws. The PS3 will recognize that the hard drive you just installed will need to be formatted, and will prompt you, with confirmation, to do so.

Upgrading the hard drive may void your warranty, so do so at your own risk. In the picture below you will see a screwdriver, a notebook SATA 160GB hard drive (you can use any size, but use a 5400RPM drive), and an external USB hard drive, you'll need the hard drive if you wish to save content from the old PS3 hard drive.The PS4 can be as troublesome as a PSOne memory card when it comes to managing memory.Luckily, Sony’s PS4 Slim can now be purchased with a hefty 1TB hard drive, which itself is super easy to upgrade.The console settings, online IDs and so forth are retained in the PS3's flash memory, so there is no need to copy this content.Be sure to move any game content, such as game saves and game demos, as well as any other media, such as pictures, video, movies, and trailers. It is important that you disconnect all cables from the PS3, including video cables, controller cables, other accessory cables, and especially the power cable.
