I am trying to upgrade my HDD space on an 80GB PS3. Will this hard drive work for replacing the original one? http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B0037NYQ7K/sr=1-1

60 GIG Ps3 Owner Since January 21, 2007
500GB Ps4 Owner Since November 22, 2014
1000 Model PSP Owner, PSP Go Owner and PS Vita Owner
PS1 and PS2, Both Original Systems.
I purchased the 500gb of this harddrive a couple months back. Haven't had any issues thus far, and it's incredibly nice to have my entire library of games installd and updated.
Do note, that you'll have to format the harddrive once you get it to FAT32 format. I used this link to help out:
I beleive that I had to download the latest ps3 update, This is copy and pasted directly from Sony's website:
Be sure to save the update data as noted below. If the data is not saved in the correct way, the PS3™ system will not recognize the update data. The folder name must be in all uppercase letters.
- Location: Save in the “PS3” folder > “UPDATE” folder
- File name: Save as file name “PS3UPDAT.PUP”
The update can also be found on that link.
It's a very easy process, but it wasn't as simple as plugging it in and hitting "backup".
Anyway, I hope this helps, and enjoy your expanded ps3 memory!
