During the process of updating my new ps3 firmware the hdd got corrupted. So I have tried all the troubleshooting problems but still don't work.

Sounds like your HDD is busted. I had the same problem, and i didn't find any solution to fix it. You could try to remove the HDD (You can find tutorials from youtube, for example, ), clean it and put back to your ps3 system. If it doesn't work, then you have to buy a new HDD. (Any 2.5 SATA hard-drive will fit, 5400 is recommended.(And again, "How to change HDD" Tutorials can be found on internet))

Asus P5KPL SE & Sata, Bios "Not Detected Problem"..

The Asus bios won't show SATA devices.
However if you are using Windows XP with Service Pack 2 (or newer operating system then the devices should be detected. If this is not happening then enter the bios -- Storage Configuration -- Configuration Enhanced and set the IDE devices to compatible. This allows all drives to be "seen" and you should then be able to load an OS.

I accidentally droppped my brand new 320gb WD Passport now it isn't working it lights up & it has a tick sound then stops spinning...pls help.. :(

Most likely you have damaged the actual harddrive, the ticking sound is NOT A GOOD HARDDRIVE SOUND! Contact western digital and tell them that your NEW harddrive is making this sound out of the box DO NOT MENTION DROPPING IT. They should RMA it as long as you really did just buy it.

Presario Media Center new SATA 320GB WD

Check to make sure you used a SATA hdd & not a SATA II hdd for your replacement. Usually these are not backwards compatible. Hope this helps.

Yes. The case doesn't care what size the drive is. The computer is just asking for the USB driver for the case. Check the WD site for the driver for the model of MyBook that you have. That should cover it.
