How to install a PS3 Slim HDD into an old PS3


This is rather a good question, a slim uses a mini connector witch will need to be adapted out before it is connected, then you talking about firmware to marry it to the system witch can be hard to find, I would say if you want to try this www.videogamerepairs.com would be your best bet.

My PS3 hard drive is corrupted. How do I get the PS3 software in the new hard drive?


What do you mean? if you mean that you have a new hard drive, then just install it where the old one is and continue normal operation. obviously, you will not have any data stored on the old drive. If your new drive is corrupt, you are SOL, as you can't "uncorrupt" corrupted data. Actually, i think you can, but it is a time consuming, cost-prhibitive procedure.

Are the old PS3 and the new PS3 sim disk drives interchangeable?


It depends on the model of the system some are only going to work with 40gb version and others work with more than one. Looking online myself I really only see businesses selling individual slim optical lens like here.

have yet to see a full bluray drive for sale but would probably cost a boat load.

Play station three will not turn on on then off when power button is pushed.


First, old PS3 or new slim PS3?

The old models have a power switch on the back that must be on. You'll know its on if you have a red light on the front of your console.

To turn the PS3 on, press the power button. A light should turn green, and you're good to go.

To turn off the older PS3's, you must hold the power switch down for several seconds. For the new slim model, just press the button quickly.

Want to download full content of fat ps3 onto new ps3 slim but have to trade in old machine for new one so cannot directly download to new machine. Any suggestions?


Take out the HD of fat, use a adapter to get the info from your HD onto your laptop. Put the HD back in.

Trade in your ps3, take out the HD, put the files you want back into the HD. Put the HD back in the slim.

PS3 80 Need to delete all on hardrive. PS3 40 Desire to transfer all gaming information to the PS3 80 after hardrive is clear. Then after transferring my info from PS3 40 to PS3 80 I'd like to delete/clear...


The best and really only way to transfer games from one ps3 to another is to get a portable thumb (usb) drive and save the games to it. Next save the games on the new ps3.

To wipe your account info from the other ps3, all you need to do is delete the user. You don't have to worry about personal information because that is not stored on the console. The information is all stored online.

If this helps, please rate me...thanks

Desire to transfer all game information from PS3 40 to PS3 80. PS3 80 has information on hardrive that I would like to delete first so I can set up with new I.D. etc. from PS3 40. Then after the PS3 40...


Go to Settings, System Settings, Back Up Utility.

You'll have to hook up an external usb drive with a good amount of space.

Use the backup utility.

Swap the 40gb drive with the 80gb drive.

Follow the onscreen PS3 prompts. A message will possibly pop telling you that you need to download a firmware file etc. If it does download the latest PS3 firmware from here:

http://www.us.playstation.com/support/systemupdates/ps3

You'll need to have it installed on a folder on your external drive like this:

PS3-->UPDATE-->firmware file

The playstation will look for the file once you press the SELECT and START buttons at the same time on your ps3 controller.

Follow the prompts, it should be straightforward.

After everything is done.

Go back into Settings, System Settings, Back Up Utility.

Click Restore and then follow the prompts.

Boom you're back in business.

Let me know if you have any other problems and check out my PS3 blog here for tips and other info:
