Archive - Consoles

In this short video we demonstrate how you can upgrade the internal hard drive on your Playstation 3. We used a Western Digital (WD) 2.5″ Scorpio Black Mobile Laptop Hard Drive- PC, Mac, PS3, and PS4 (500GB) purchased from Amazon. You will also need a USB thumb drive LaCie PetiteKey 8 GB USB 2.0 Flash Drive and a small philips screw driver.

After you fit the new hard drive you will have to install the PS3 firmware onto the new drive. Then you will need to resort your user account games and save data.
