Does anyone know if it's possible to move hard disks between the 40gb and 60gb models? I have a 60gb that's just broken, and only being offered a 40gb as replacement. Would it be possible to move the 60gb hard disk into the 40gb model? Thanks if anyone knows either way!

Yes, you can. Unfortunately you have to format the HDD in the new model first. The content of the HDD is digitally signed so you can't just swap HDDs and access the files on it.

Before you swap the HDDs you can backup your files and restore them later on. This way you don't have to re-download all your stuff. Copy protected files will not be restored though...

Ok, one further question! If I were to move the hard disk across, would the digitally signed access thing described by Spaulding mean that I couldn't even access linux files? Or would it only matter for the native ps3 os file access?
