Hi tempo27

Yes, you can put it into a new Playstation as long as it is also a Playstsaion 3. You won't lose any saves, as all your game saves is saved on your memmory card.

Putting old hard drive in new ps3 to get game saves error


You cannot switch a hard drive from an old ps3 and put it into the new one. The new ps3 will know that a new hard drive was inserted and offer to format it.

To get the games off the old hard drive, put it back into the old ps3. Insert a USB flash drive into a USB port on the PS3 and you should be able to copy saved games from the hard drive onto the USB flash drive. You can then plug the USB flash drive into your new ps3 and copy off the saved game info,

Ps3 hard drive is saying its full when it shouldn't be


When you install a game it can sometimes install the whole game so theres no loading issues. (e.g grand theft4 3gb ish) if you go into saved game data it should tell you what games are installed, if you hit triangle and select info. it will tell you the size of the file. delete any games you dont use, and dont worry about your saves as they are in the game saves section.

PS3 corrupted hard disk


Yes. All you need is a Seagate SATA 2.5" hard drive. It doesn't matter how many GB it has. If you have the 20GB or 60GB model of PS3 for goodness sake keep it!! That model is backwards compatible and will play PS1 and PS2 games. The 40GB unit does not have this luxury. I hope this helps you. Good luck and happy gaming!!

My Playstation 3 will not start. It keeps coming up with an error message saying, "Cannot start. Correct hard disk is not found." Any ideas why?


Yes, You need to re-format your hard drive via your laptop or purchase a new hard drive.. sometimes they become invalid/corrupt and you need to reset it or put a new one in.. I suggest taking it out and put it back in to see if it was knocked loose if not then you need a new hd! a 60gb ps3 original via eba is 40$
