Question about Sony Computers & Internet
I just bought a new hard drive to replace my old one, but ive run into a problem. When it is formatting, around 5% it will turn off and then the power light will turn red and blink until i touch it. The new hard drive meets all the requirements for the ps3 and has the same RPM. Please help!
There sounds like there is something wrong with the drive. If it is a SATA notebook hard drive with the same RPM (5400), there shouldn't be any issues at all.
Double check this by reformatting the old one you replaced it with (as long as you have your data backed up). If that reformat goes smoothly, get your new drive replaced.
