PS3 HD Upgrade...
Great drive, works well. However, took 3 hours to install into a new PS3.
Physically installing it takes 2 mins, Getting the PS3 operating system on it, is a different matter!
I had a new 80Gb version and upgraded to this 320Gb version.
All the info online reports that your PS3 'sees' the new HD and allows you to format it. NOT TRUE!
Mine just sat there asking for a SCE souce. This is the OS from a different source because it could not boot! Thus you cannot format it either.
After much searching I found the solution. You need to google "SCE PS3 update" download the .bin file from Sony. Its about 168Mb. Then you need to put in onto a memory stick in the right folder name - Doesn't work in the root. It needs to be in a folder called \PS3\UPDATE. Then boot your machine, follow the onscreen instructions, press 2 buttons together. It then boots the new OS (Mine is now version 3.00 not 2.80 - From the new slim line PS3's) and allows you to set up the new HD. You get about 280Gb free. very useful as my 80Gb was full!
Further word of warning - you cannot then reboot your old HD with an older version of the OS. to get you saved files off - so do that FIRST. Lucking I backed up my saved games and trophy's first.
To an external HDD using FAT32, (They wont read a NTFS HD - Win XP format etc).
Then it should all work - saving you all the 3 hrs I took to get it all working.
It then just a case of reloading all your games... aaahhhh.
