I really don't know anything about the PS3, but it should be easy enough to hook both hard drives to a computer and clone the existing drive to the new drive.

Do a Google search on: ps3 hard drive upgrade

It provided many links on the topic, including some videos on u2be.

This link seemed to provide some various bits of information as well:

Sorry I couldn't be of more help.

Good luck!

I here a loud sound comming from my playstation 3 system. I kind of sounds like its vribrating but I can not be sure. help please.

have you dropped or bumped it lately? it sounds like your harddrive is off its axis and bent slightly, if its truly bothering you you should be able to replace the harddrive, if not i would back all your files up (if you have playstation plus you can have all your saved data stored in the cloud so even if your hard drive dies you will keep your saved games), there may not be anything to worry about, it can continue working happily for years to come, but there is the risk the harddrive will die on you and need to be replaced.

Playstation 3 (PS3) Console: i put in my resident evil game and it said theres ...

Your PS3 may have an error in the harddrive that causes this, I recommend that you buy a new harddrive that is cheap. and copy save data onto it then clear all memory on the original harddrive. It may also be a corrupted save.

Playstation 3 froze,now won't work what do I do?

Check your harddrive, pull it out and but it back in. Some times this will clear it and reboot. If not you might need a new one. I purchased a 200g SATA laptop harddrive at bestbuys for about $100 plug it in and it ran perfect

My playstation 3 powers on but i get no audio or video

If harddrive light flashes on the PS3, you might not have the wires in the right place on your tv. Settings on the PS3 might not be set to the right cable. Tv might not be on the right input to view the PS3. If harddrive light dousn't flash your got bigger problems. Harddrive light is the amber colored light on the left side.
