Dear Playstation 3 Community,
First time poster, just bought myself a Playstation 3 Slim 160gb.
Now, I've gone ahead and replaced the stock hard drive with one of my Western Digital Scorpio Blue 320GB I had...but it was the way I did it, in which, I'm concerned.
Everything works fine and whatnot, but I fear, for future tweaks, there'll be a problem. Basically, when I had taken out the stock hard drive and replaced it, I had obviously tightened the screw (blue one on the base of the PS3) a bit too much and have been unable to get a decent grip with any of my screwdrivers.
I've YouTubed some solutions for general wornout screw heads...resolutions would be:-
1.Try a different screwdriver.
2.Use a Damaged Screw Remover.
3.Hammer a screwdriver into the screw to embed it further.
1. I've got a few in the flat, but none really help give me the grip I need to unscrew.
2. From the videos I've seen, I need a power drill (again, I might've probably been looking at the wrong source)
3. I'm very apprehensive with this one because I don't want to damage my PS3.
Any advice to this would be greatly appreciated.

If you have just bought yourself a PS3 slim then why didn't you just buy a 320gb one instead of getting a 160gb then replacing the HDD?
Because it's cheaper to buy a 160GB PS3 and a 320GB hard drive than a 320GB PS3?
