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.

My old ps3 got ylod. i got a new slim works perfectly fine. i figured i should put my 60 gb in it to format it so it doesnt go to waste but the formatting stops at 99%. when i put my slim hard drive back...


Formatting writes data to the disk, should a sector of the disk be damaged the hard drive may not report it to he PS3 firmware. If you can install the hard drive in a computer hard drive repair utilities, like spinrite, can often fix such problems. http://www.grc.com/spinrite.htm
Connecting it to a computer and doing a low level format there is likely to have better error correction than the built in PS3 formatting.

Corrupted hard disk file system


Try doing a quick format on the hard drive since the data is already corrupted. If you can't do a quick format then your going to need to replace the hard drive with another one. Any SATA hard drive will work in that PS3. Just take the old one out and put the new one in, turn on the ps3 and do a quick format on it and your PS3 will be good to go.

Playstation 3 (PS3) Console: the disk drive is broken...


It probably needs a new laser because the old one is "burnt out". It's a really common problem with them.

You could replace the laser or the entire Bluray drive.


You can buy these online at may online stores or eBay.

Putting old hard drive in new ps3 to get game saves error


You cannot switch a hard drive from an old ps3 and put it into the new one. The new ps3 will know that a new hard drive was inserted and offer to format it.

To get the games off the old hard drive, put it back into the old ps3. Insert a USB flash drive into a USB port on the PS3 and you should be able to copy saved games from the hard drive onto the USB flash drive. You can then plug the USB flash drive into your new ps3 and copy off the saved game info,

Not saving games lost files seems to be corrupted


You can try to reformat the entire hard drive, or you can buy a new hard drive.

To reformat the drive, in the PS3 menu:
NOTE: This will erase everything you saved on the hard drive.

1) Go to the Settings menu, then select System Settings.
2) Select Format Utility, then select Format Hard Disk.
3) Select Quick Format

To replace the Hard Drive, buy any 2.5 inch notebook hard drive that has a serial ATA connection. Then remove the old hard drive from the left side of the PS3 and install the new hard drive.

Try updating the firmware. If it doesn't work, then take it to a repair shop, there's nothing you can do.

Sim card


Make sure you store all your phonebook contacts in the SIM card and your SMS messages too.
Then exchange the SIM's and your actual line and number will be on the new phone.

Ps3 disk reading error


Can you be any more specific? is this a problem with one disk, one type of disk or all disks? What is the exact error you are getting? Are you trying to play a game, play a film, play an audio CD or are you using your PS3 as a Linux computer and trying to open a data disk? have you tried more than one disk? Without specifics there's just no way to guess what the problem is.

Hardware Corruption


donno if your still interested to know this but you dont need to buy a new hard disk incase formating or restoring did not work out. you can always remove your hard drive. follow the removal tips in the help and support ps3 handbook. thereafter you should connect it to a computer through usb drive. you can do this by dismantling any old hard disk casing and replacing the hard disk with the ps3 hard disk. once done connect it to a computer, format it and then put it back into the ps3 system and upon putting it on. you'll just follow the easy format instructions and your back in business
