    I've never had to purchase a particular HDD for the PS3. I've just always used whatever I had at hand.

    To back up your current PS3 HDD you will need an external USB HDD. You then pop the new HDD in, format it, then transfer everything from the external HDD to your new internal PS3 HDD.

    I believe you can comfortably go up to a 1TB HDD with the PS3. I've installed 500GB & 750GB HDDs for friends with no problems arising.

    You can only fit a 1TB in the PS3,only if you dismantle the PS3 and manually fit the 1TB in the cage.
    Because 1TB are 12mm and not 9.5mm so they don't fit in the PS3 HDD cage,nor does it fit in the gap very well.
    Largest you can go without problems is a 500GB for the PS3

    I'm pretty sure the 750GB HDD I used was a Western Digital 9.5mm drive. I forgot about the size difference with the 1TB HDDs. I've never attempted to fit one in a PS3 :D

    One of these would probably install ok : http://www.shop.bt.com/products/wes...e-2-5--sata-3gb-s-5400rpm-8mb-9-5mm-7LNZ.html

    LOL £92 for a 1TB thats 9.5mm?? Not worth it at all you can get an SSD or a new CPU or motherboard for that price.

    Nope you can't sorry,why have you got 256gb memory stick,those are expensive. Surely you could of picked up an external 1TB for same price of a 256gb memory stick or even less money.
