Forums - Sony Discussion - Upgrading the PS3 Harddrive

I just upgraded mine two weeks before I got a 250gb segate and it work fine but listen to what domo-kun says about those screws being soft.

They need to replace those cheaply made screws they are easly striped, mine got striped too.



To avoid stripping screws just use the right size screwdriver and apply light force towards the casing as you turn it. There is nothing wrong with those screws, any stripping is from human error.



Also there is nothing wrong with Western Digital drives.

thats cool, not ike HDD screws are hard to find. i have tons actually thanks to my screwless PC case. why do they give you HDD screws if its a screwless design.. pointless but useful.

Contacted Sony on February 18th for the extra case & screws, Sony replied back saying they would ship them to me. As it turns out, as of 2 days they are on back order. Any else have any problems getting a replacement case & screws from Sony? It's closing in on a month since i've contacted Sony & they haven't even shipped mine

WD sucks.

I got a Seagate, hasn't let me down yet.

BTW, the RPM's on your new hard drive won't really have a noticeable effect on your system.

 

I have

Me too, no joke but about 4 of their TB HDDs have broken on me before I learnt my lesson and switched to WD. Going from the internet response, I suspect im definately nowhere near alone.



Tease.
