Could a PlayStation HDD Work With a Computer PC?

Simply put, yes. HOWEVER, you need to reformat it. The PS3 and PS4 both us SATA 2.5" HDD. So, essentially, you can use that drive in your laptop, but you'll need to reformat it first.

And just as easily, you can always swap out the 20, 40, 60, 80 GB, etc HDD from the PS3 (or the 500GB and 1TB HDD from the PS4), and put in a larger SATA 2.5" HDD to replace it. All you have to do is format it appropriately for the PS3 (or PS4).

What is maximum GB supported for hard drive

Normally there is not such limit in recent moterboards, but if you used old motherboards which released during 2007-08 they can support upto 500GB per slot, and there is normally 2-4 slots for connection of HDD.

In this way you can have upto 2TB of HDD storage.

My laptop cannot detect my hard drive. It no longer vibrates and the light doesn't blink anymore.

the drive could be potentially corrupt.
plug in your HDD and run recurrva and try to recover files if you cant do that remove the HDD from the caddy and plug into a PC and test if you can access your files if not reformat by right clicking on the drive in my computer (ntfs is recommended) you will loose all data but you may be able to recover your HDD

try other usb port, or other computer and see whether the hdd is detected. If still not, try to go to device manager ( ), and then assign a drive letter to the hdd.

What Is The Bigger Hard Drive I Can Use

It looks like this computer only supports IDE hard drives.
The larget drives are all SATA hard drives. You can get a host card like this one: which will give you some SATA ports. Make sure you have a free PCI slot.
There's a limitation with current operating systems that won't let you have a boot drive be larger than 2.2TB. I wouldn't recommend getting a drive larger than 2TB for that reason.
Good luck.

Is my LaCie External USB 2.0 500GB fried/dead???

You're not missing any step at all, because with SATA hard drive if its really working your computer should
automatically detect it and since this hard drive suddenly stop working there's a possibility that its already
fried but if you want you can try this hard drive again to a different computer and if still not detected by
second computer its already dead.........
