Hi , I am NEW to PS3 so please don't bite. I have bought a new 320 gb to pot in my ( new ) 12 gb.. I have managed to find the system backup, which I have done to an external hard drive. My question is how or what do I do next, I havent installed the new HD yet, so do I just put it in and turn on the ps3? If so I assume I can then go to menu and restore from external hard drive. Very sorry for what is a simple question but Im no genius with pc's, wish I had done some homework before getting the 12gb as I've only been playing GT5 and I cant update anything as the download is to big ! Still I'm hoping someone on here can assist me. Thanks in advance

A2GMAN, thanks for the quick reply, I have ordered the caddy , and I hadnt seen that particular video on you tube , with the last 20 seconds being exactly what I wanted. Ive just had a thought , I assume the screws to attatch the drive to the caddy and indeed the blue screw to attatch the caddy to the ps3 aren't going to be in the box with the caddy !!! Anyone on here no a link where I can get some. I can of course go on ebay myself BUT not sure what I need to put exactly in the search box. As I said sorry for the questions but Ive only had the ps3 2 weeks , my last games system was a sega mega drive !!!! Thanks again in advance
