Question about Sony Playstation 3 (PS3) Console
Like i said my 80 gig ps3 goes to 50 the error code is 8002F072 what do i do
SOURCE: PS3 wont play PS2 games!??
some 80 gb ps3's are backwards compatible, some are not.
unfortunately it looks like you have one that isn't.
my suggestion is to look on the back of the unit, underneath the barcode. the serial number will be there, followed by the model number. if you're model is not CECHE01 it is not backwards compatible.

Unfortunetly the HDD's can't be swapped like that. The only way to get the old stuff is to some how get the 40gb working so you can back up your system. Tell me what happend to the 40 and I might be able to help you get it up long enough to back it up so you can get all your stuff transfered. Another way is if you can get the 40gb machine to work the PS3 has a mode to hook a CAT5 cable from the new to the old and transfer that way.
A little more on the HDD swap. The HDD's are machine spacific and can only be recognized by the machine they were in and any other PS3 you try to put them in won't recognize the device without a format will saddly enough wipe the drive clean.
Let me know what's wrong with the 40 and I will see if I can help getting it back up so you can get your saved stuff off of it.
