    On topic: Thanks for the heads up once I find out how to add HDD to my PS3 I'll order right away. Thanks

    EDIT: do I just plug it into the hole that says CF above it?
    The HDD is located on the left side of the PS3 (if you have it horizontal). There's a plate that says HDD on it. The process is actually pretty simple. You just have to be really gentle with the screws on the hard drive encasing. There's quite a few extensive video tutorials on Youtube. Just search "PS3 hard drive" and you'll find something.

    Hey guys, I was just wondering, is installing a new HDD as simple as it sounds? Just remove the screws, take out the old one and slide in the new, screw it in & boom thats it, 320G memory or whatever's left after its formatted? And let's say I ordered one of these 320G's, would it be equal or greater in performance to the original one? I have a 60G from when they were first released. Thanks

    well you also need to backup the information you want backing up onto an external hard drive, but yeah seems simple. I checked youtube like suggested and it seems easy So I'm gonna pick one up.

    Speaking of external hard drives which ones do people recommend?

    Just bought this one from them yesterday.
    Only shame: NY is taxed.

    Granted It ended up $118 plus when I finished.
    But hey that upgraded my 3 day shipping to one day shipping.

    It was sent out today, should get it tomorrow.
    Then time to rock out Handbrake hardcore.

    I bought the 320gb Hitachi instead. Only $90 (free shipping)after the mail-in-rebate. The bad thing is waiting for the rebate.

    Western Digital have just announced that they have started shipping their 500GB laptop drive. I think I'm going to get that instead as I don't want to have to keep upgrading my HDD.

    I've already gone from 60GB -> 120GB lol

    For Canada best prices for pc stuff can be found here:
    http://www.pccanada.com/inventory.asp?cat=HARD%20DRIVES


    I recently purchased a WD 320GB for 118.99 CDN it is now listed at 109.99.
    The Samsung is 89.99 CDN. These prices are before tax.

    Another store that has more locations and good prices (similar to TigerDirect) is CanadaComputers:
    http://www.canadacomputers.com/index...l&id=HD.517.47

    They have the WD 320GB for 101.99 They only have a 500GB Samsung for 204.99, didn't see the 320GB.

    TigerDirect.ca doesn't have the 320GB version of the WD or Samsung lilsted anymore from what I could see.


    Instructions for upgrading the drive can be found on this forum and also in the playstation online manual/FAQ. I posted link in another thread. Just did a google search. After fromatting the 320GB drive has 263GB free. Took about 1hour 30 mins to restore the 40GB of data from my old HDD that I had backed up on an external drive.

    Cheers.

    Just need to backup your current to an external HDD (formatted to FAT32). Then restore ALL of your old settings etc (including the 150+CDs) to the new drive. The restore may take a while but much quicker/easier than reloading all the CD's, plus you get all your other stuff (game saves, pics, videos, demos etc)

    If manufacturers are coming out with 500GB drives then that may explain why the 320GB are getting cheaper. Price of a new 500GB drive is comparable to what a 320GB drive cost 6 or so months ago. Glad I waited to buy my 320GB drive.
