Correct, just format it to FAT32 and the PS3 should see it with no problems.

Here are a couple of good sources for info:


Just be sure to use caution when removing the hard drive nai... well, I'm sure those other threads cover that...

I saw that coming from a mile away.. Just from reading the Thread title I knew someone would make a nails/screw reference.

screws were no problem as long as you attack them at the right angle and use a jewelers set

Good deal! Let us know how it turns out. I just might swap mine out soon for a larger drive!

For those of you who have replaced your hard drives....


Do you have an recommendations as far as what screw drivers to use? I think I remember reading somewhere that a certain type/size of screw driver worked best for removing the screws without stripping them but I can't remember where I saw it.


If you have any suggestions, please let me know....

I used a phillips head tip from my craftsman cordless drill bit and screw driver set. I had no problems with the screws on the PS3 HDD.

Do I really need to step in here?!?!?!!? LOL!


If you do happen to run into Vincent, please make sure you're in a very heavy automobile and then back up and do it about 30 more times.


For those of you swapping hard drives, please make sure your nails come out with the correct drill bit and don't strip them like the computer technician/financial analyst/real estate broker/english language mutilator...

How would you format the external hdd to FAT32?

Plus it into your PC and then under utilities, you can choose to format the drive. Choose FAT32 and you're good to go.
