i am switching my old ps3 to a newer one i i don’t know if i will be able to change the hard drive in the new one. because i want to keep all of the information from my old one. like i want to take my old hard drive and put it in my new ps3 would i have to format it once i put it into the the new one?

thanks

  1. If you put the old PS3 HHD into the new PS3 then yes it will have to be formatted before the new PS3 can use. The HDD that comes with the PS3 is specific to that machine and when the HDD is changed the PS3 detects this and it forces the PS3 to re-format the unrecognized new HDD. Once this is complete then the new HDD will be specific to that particular PS3.
