Re: Help! If a change my PS3 hdd will it stop freezing and lagging??

Jul 6, 2011

I know what ya mean. I changed my 40gb HDD to 500gb HDD a year ago. In my ps3 had seagate Hard drive. I installed the hard drive myself. Easy to do if you know what you are doing. Lagging might be your internet connection as well. Because when playing online it does tends to lag once in awhile because we all are on sony's servers.

PS. Just remember all PS3 consoles have small internal laptop hard drives.

(465gb playstation 3 system) I got my ps3 between 2006-2008. Games I play online: Little Big Planet,LBP2,Sacred 2 Fallen Angel,Gran Turismo 5 Prologue,Gran Turismo 5,Tekken 6,Full Auto Battlelines 2,Sonic The Hedghog,Smackdown Vs Raw 2008,Untold Legends Dark Kingdom,Soul Calibur IV, GTA IV,Lego Rock Band,Rideg Racer 7,White Knight Chronicals,Need For Speed Prostreet,Need For Speed Shift,Nascar 08,Killzone 2,Lego Starwars the complete saga,chaotic shadow warriors,Modnation Racers,Marvel Ultimate alliance,Marvel super hero squad infinity gauntlet,Dungeon siege 3,Guitar Hero III,Skylanders spyros adventures.

downloads: Warhawk,Frogger Return,Fatproncess,Pixel racers,Pixel monsters,Trine,D-A-C,DC universe,D&D:smileyvery-happy:aggerdale,Warhammer40,000:Kill Team.

I did that but it did not give me any errors or bad sectors. Works fine in PC yet once I set it back in the PS3 the freezing starts again.

No, I already fix the issue (Jul 2, 2011) by replacing my PS3 160GB TOSHIBA hdd for a 120GB Seagate. Everything is working fine for now.

Thanks.

I am having the same issues you have had and now I am hoping a new hdd will do the trick.

 

Did you use the backup utility before removing the problem drive?  I am wondering if the corrupt data could be in there and if it would then transfer to the new drive after installing?
