The serial number really doesn't have anything to do with the HDD size. Only because they are so easily changed. It would be worth, getting one with a smaller Hdd, and then upgrade it to a 1TB HDD for the cost of around $75.00. There are only a couple of variations to the ones to look out for. The old "fat" systems, the 40GB size, was also called the"reverse GEN" system. The new "super slim" released in the U.S. has 2 variations. A 250GB and a 12GB.
Unfortunetly the HDD's can't be swapped like that. The only way to get the old stuff is to some how get the 40gb working so you can back up your system. Tell me what happend to the 40 and I might be able to help you get it up long enough to back it up so you can get all your stuff transfered. Another way is if you can get the 40gb machine to work the PS3 has a mode to hook a CAT5 cable from the new to the old and transfer that way.
A little more on the HDD swap. The HDD's are machine spacific and can only be recognized by the machine they were in and any other PS3 you try to put them in won't recognize the device without a format will saddly enough wipe the drive clean.
Let me know what's wrong with the 40 and I will see if I can help getting it back up so you can get your saved stuff off of it.
i dont really think the HDD change matters.the fault might be from the game you are playing,probably the disc or something.please give a more vivid description of what happens.and the game you are playing too.
Yes, you can. And Sony lets you officially do that. Just for that it has a slot on the side. You just need to remove the screw and pull out the HDD. You can then replace it with any capacity 2.5" HDD also popularly known as laptop hard drives.
Unfortunately without having a xbox live account all your achievements I'm afraid are lost. Next time before to link your account to at least a Silver membership (the free one) that way if you ever accidentally delete or lose your profile information, you can just recover your gamer tag from Xbox Live along with all your gamer info.
One more question though, does your 20gig hdd still contain your profile and gamer achievements? If so, you could most likely just copy it onto a memory card over to your 120gb hdd.
Also the reason its only 117gb, is the same reason all hdd are not the same size they are advertised. The manufacturer assumes 1000mB = 1GB when in reality 1024mB = 1GB. So 120,000mB (which is the physical size of the hard drive) divided by 1024mB = ~117GB.
ive been doing some home work on it since last night and it seems the best one is a seagate version, either 5600 rpm or the 7200 rpm works, but it cant be larger than the 200gb for the size of it fitting, the best price i could find was about 40-50 pound or 80-100 dollars, just google it and it should come up. The only thing is i would say it would void your warranty when fitting it as its not a standard fitment, so i'm waiting till mines ran out to do it.
Yes all of your data on the hd is on the hd, I can find you one or sell you one. I believe on ebay right now there is one for 40$ which is decent! Or check out a big electronic seller ie circut city frys electronics best buy ect and tell them you want to upgrade your ps3 they will know what to do!
You cant really get a PS3 Hard Drive because Sony made their own Hard Drives so i think your gonna have to Contact them asking for a PS3 Hard Drive and i think you should really delete some Games like Demos you downloaded cause those Demos take up atleast 500 mbs each or more.
