Oh and when you get a laptop SATA Drive you need to format it to FAT32.

 

SATA Hard Drives have come down in price so you should be able to pick one up cheaply.

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.
