Hi, sorry it's another hard drive question. Anyone know if SATA 300 drives are compatible with PS3, I quite fancy this....
A SATA 300 interface is more commonly known as a SATA II interface which the PS3 is compatible with. TBH I'd go for 320gb HDD which only costs £7 more on ebuyer.
Well for the record that's me a few hours in to life with the above WD HDD and all seems well (touch wood). Swapping them over was ok also, i was very careful with the screws! Spent most of the time trying to re-format my external HDD so the ps3 would recognise and i could back up my data. My comp said it was fat32 but still the ps wouldn't reconise it. Followed the instructions on the link below ( if anyone has a similar problem) and once done my ps recognised it. Then i just had to wait an hour and a bit well it backed up!
Anyways, happy days, thanks for the help and tips folks
