Well, I was surprised to find out my package came yesterday. I spent all evening getting the swap ready. I just used my 1GB Flash Drive to move my files. Took a while, but I got it done.
I got the 250 and put it in with only one problem. One screw on the HDD 'cage' stripped and it took 25 minutes to deal with it. I hate when that happens. Everything else, and I mean EVERYTHING else only took 6 minutes to do. Yep, that's how it goes, sometimes. One little piss-ant thing screws up your day. Anyway, I got it in and found my 250GB was only 232, a loss of 18GB. Yikes, that's steep! After formatting, the PS3 took 27GB of that for a end total of 205GB to play with. Ouch! But, it's better than 55GB.
OK, as I said, I also got an external case for the old 60GB HDD and I'm having big problems with it. Like was said, the PS3 wouldn't recognize it. So wont my PC. Actually, my PC indicates there's a "USB Storage Device' connected, but it wont show up in the "My Computer" section. Therefor, I cannot format it. I also used the supplied CD, and the USB drivers are for Windows 98 only and wont work.
I went to the manufac. website and downloaded the driver, which again, is only for Windows 98. And saved it, and ran it in Windows 98 and it still wont work. It will start to download the drivers, but then I get a bunch of error messages and that it cannot download the entire file.
Now what do I do? Take my USB 60GB HDD to a different computer, and try to format it there? Anybody else go through this?
