maybe my ex hdd isnt working proper for this, what would be the best drive to get? a small flash drive?

I think it was intended that you use a flash drive. A 1GB one would have plenty of space.

Someone said on Amazon that this drive works for the PS3:

No. The PS3 doesn't use FAT32 for its internal drive. The system software will reformat it for you.

Perhaps, but you are making this too complicated. Burning the firmware on a CD/DVD or a flash drive will make it much easier.
