Re: Swapping Ps3 Fat Hard drive Directly onto a Ps3 Slim

Jun 12, 2012

Hi,

Did you have any luck with this? I'm trying exactly the same and naively thought I'd just be able to swap my slim's 160GB hdd with my fat's 320GB but it tells me I've got a problem with the system software.

Damn!

Any help would be appreciated.

Thanks

You can not simply swap hard drives because then new ps3 will wipe/reformat the drive.  If you have a ylod you must use data transfer if you can get the old ps3 working.
