Re: The Unofficial PS3 Hard Drive Upgrade Thread

I can't seem to find the right screw driver.

My jewellers set of screw drivers fit, but it's not a snug fit, and I'm not sure if the blue screw is tighter than it should be, because I can't

open it without exerting too much force, I don't want to strip the screw.

 

Can someone tell me exactly what type of screwdriver I should use?

Times sure have changed since my 250GB drive was a bargain at $230. Better than a gig per dollar! :smileytongue:

well if your like me and take the first price you see still don't pay more than $140, you don't have to pay the full 140 so 109 or less is still included

Re: The Unofficial PS3 Hard Drive Upgrade Thread

Hey all...

 

500GB drive now installed and seems to be working fine :smileyhappy:    The blue screw is not too bad, but the drive tray ones are a bitch... they are really soft. I probably wrecked one of the four (and that was using jewelers set), so it could be interesting if I need to get it back out... hehehe
