. Does anyone here know anything about these things? I tried to "restart" but it keeps crashing after it works for a day or two. I see some people put a new hard drive in them for about 120 bucks. Seeing a new system is about 300 I wonder if I should just go with a whole new set up. Thoughts, advice, opinions, help?
If its just the hard drive, you can replace it pretty easy. You need a new drive 320 gig plenty big and cheap at Microcenter. You also need a USB drive to be able to format the drive and a USB case to put the drive in while you format it. I have one you can borrow. The directions are actually on the PS3 website. I changed mine from 80 to a 320 a couple years ago.
