First of all make sure u turn off your ps3 and have it unplugged from the back. also unplug the video cables or hdmi cables. if you look on the left side and you'll see a plastic cover that reads "detach this cover when removing the hard disk" there is a small grove towards the right side of the cover if you are looking at it. you can use your finger to lift it open or use a small flat screw driver. once the cover is off you'll be looking at the hard drive. notice the small screw thats holding it in place. *** IMPORTANT*** MAKE SURE U USE THE RIGHT SIZE SCREWDRIVER to remove the screw. if you strip the head you'll have a mess on your hands. also be aware that the little screw is on tight. so push in wit the screwdriver with little force before turning the screw.. once thats off there is a little tab that you can lift up and use it as a handle to slide the hard drive sideways. once you do that just pull it straight out. thats it.

Look in the manuals supplied with your PS3 or go onto there main website there is instructions there even with pictures its very simple, just be warned the screw initially is very hard to get lose so make sure your using the right screwdriver on it.

40gb ps3 not reading any discs


clean off a disk and see if that helps. if it doesn't, the laser lens inside the PS3 may be dirty. you may have to have someone check, if nothing works, to see if the laser itself has broken. also, listen to hear if the guts are working at all.

I accidently reset my hard disk format how do i get my all my game data and all my other data can you please tell me how


You CAN get a lot of it back. This is not a complete disaster. You can sign back into the PlayStation Store & re-download all your purchased games, add-ons, demos & trophies. So, that's a plus. As for your music, pix & game "save points", they're all gone. This has happened to the best of us. (myself, included!) You have to "back-up" your saved data. I use my ipod for this. It's a great use for all my unused ipod mem. Hopefully this helped a little. Good luck, bro

File corrupted


Just replace the hard drive. If it is under a year old then call Sony customer support and they may pay for a new hard drive. I hope this helps.

I want to increase the storage capacity my Hard disk.


hi,

You can use SATA hard disk.

you said you already have 40gb. so, your pentium 4 mother board can work with full performance with upto 80 gb.

My suggestion for you is to get another 40 gb and install it ,so it makes 80 gb as total.

Other option is , There are external hard disks available for reasonable cost. you can go for it.

Your RAM is ok too.

Hope my info helps you.
Bye.

PS3 corrupted hard disk


Yes. All you need is a Seagate SATA 2.5" hard drive. It doesn't matter how many GB it has. If you have the 20GB or 60GB model of PS3 for goodness sake keep it!! That model is backwards compatible and will play PS1 and PS2 games. The 40GB unit does not have this luxury. I hope this helps you. Good luck and happy gaming!!
