Updating ps3 storage media
Slot in carefully, aligning the SATA connectors and secure with the blue screw.Go ahead and boot up – the system will detect a new drive, and ask if you wish to use this to store system data and saves etc.The 12 GB of internal flash storage transfers over to the new drive – that’s it.The rest of these instructions only apply to case of upgrades from one physical drive to another.
I recently bought a new PS3 Super Slim – the latest model – but it only came with a measly 12 GB flash storage.
The caddy for the Super Slim is incompatible with older models, so check before you buy.
The drive area can be found on the right side of the device (looking from the front), next to the CD tray.
Note that once you’ve done this, the internal flash memory will no longer be used – you cannot choose to download games to one or the other.
The drive is accessed from the underside, laid flat.
