You could spend more money on a drive that's capable of 7200rpm and 3.0gb/s, but the PS3 will only utilize it at the aforementioned speeds, so its pretty useless. If you use a butter knife for a screwdriver and rush through it....yeah, you'll probably screw something up. Precision Screwdriver Set - Really, don't try to use that big screwdriver in the junk drawer.There are a few things to consider before moving forward... The PS3 has a back up function that will save everything on it..long as you've got a storage device big enough to hold it all. Before you upgrade, just plug in your hard drive via USB, select System Settings Back Up and follow the onscreen directions. Alright, you'll need: A Playstation 3 - That's pretty self explanatory. You can snag a set of precision screwdrivers for 5 bucks, and they're absolutely necessary for this. You'll notice an external hard drive enclosure in the picture below.
Copy the update data to the PS3™ system's hard disk drive and perform the update.
