Re: Dose a computer hard drive works for a ps3

Hmm, some bad replies here.

 

If you want to replace the HDD you need a 2.5 inch SATA upto 500gb with a maximum thickness of 9mm as the newer large size won't fit (750gb and 1TB). Don't bother with 20gb or 50gb, go straight for a 120gb minimum from eBay for less than $40 and what has been said about needing to format first isn't true. The PS3 will prompt you to format the HDD after inserting it and starting up anyway.
