Can i add extra memory storage to my 12gb ps3 system?


Yes, you can upgrade your Hard drive (HDD) very easy. There are a few things you will need. First, a big enough memory stick/thumb drive. It has to be big enough to hold your saved games, videos, music, etc. Remember, purchased games can be downloaded again for free from your transaction history. So you don't need to worry about those. Make sure it is a thumb drive that doesn't have anything you might want to save on it. If there is, back it up first on your PC. Here is a youtube vid that will take you through the rest. You can go with as much storage space as you can afford! It has a 12Gb now, you can replace it with a 1TB or Tera-bite. Witch is actually 1,000gb.(There's your space) ^^ PS. I know the version you have is the "SUPER SLIM" because they never brought out a 12gb version in any of the others.

My ps3 wont store any games ......i just have to use ma disc for playing ? lease someone help me how can i store games in my ps3 harddrive


This is not possible. You can install games to your HDD by pressing triangle when hovering over the game on the home screen. However, this doesn't make it so you no longer require the disc. Installing just reduces load times slightly and makes it so the disc doesn't have to spin while you're playing.

I was going to constantly back and forth to my friends house and i brought my ps3. in my home i had the basic settings. at his house i had the hdmi. now niether works. please help me


Set up your ps3, go to turn it on but keep your finger pressed down on the on button for a couple of seconds until you hear it beep twice.
This should reset the input and hopefully solve your problem, if not turn it off and try again this time hold for 5 secs this should do a full reset of the ps3
good luck

I just installed a WD Scorpio Black 500GB HDD to my PS3. I did all the required steps to insure complete restoration of my game data. The question I have is why when I backed up my 40GB original HD and...


ok it is perfectly normal for that memory to be missing the ps3 reserves something like 12% of the memory for system management and to create a swap file and also for general processes, and the games also take up 2gb of space a game or close to. all this should be stated on the box of the HDD, differs with brands
