Thats a good question it should work but it may not be able to if the hard drive is formated for windowsOther opinions are available.
There is no such thing as "formatted for windows". You format it to a specific file system. Weather or not Windows is compatable, and can read/write in that format doesn't matter.
As long as it's NTFS or FAT32 or something I imagine it will be able to read fine.
Yes i think you can.Thats the beauty of an "open" system ^^Good "night" my baby...i will always remember you.I love you.
It's not so simple though. I doubt that the OS in the PS3 can handle NTFS, and FAT32 is pretty damn old and crummy file system.

I would imagine some compatability issues would arise. Sony is claiming it to be a multimedia center PC, so maybe you might be able to connect an external drive and through the PS3 interface, you might be able to access it. With linux installed, I think there will be less issues.

you can just bung in some Laptop HDD drive... just like how any 3.5" HDD can go into the PS2... Pre-Slimline.Big Boss Emblem FTW!
i dont think so. because remember sony saying something about upgradable hard drive like 100gb 120gb. so most likely not.
Consoles i own : ps2 xbox360 Ps3 Wii psp

yes you can, a hdd doesn't have it own software. it could be plug and use in any kind of system that is similar to a computer and have a hdd reading ability.
Use VFAT on a Cell server so that way Linux, Windows, and the PS3 can all use the same media files.
There is a questions sticky to discuss this in.
