Well second time replacing the HDD in the boy's PS3. I'm getting to be a pro now... So now we went from 20GB to 320GB to now 500GB. I had to use an X-out bit on one of the screws though, I forgot how easily the screws strip out. I freaked out for a second when I updated to 2.80 and it rebooted to tell me wrong hard drive.... ! But then I remembered that the unit already thinks it is on 2.80 because of the BIOS. So I immediately restored my system back up (9GB) and all was well. Now reading 465GB of usable space. Whoo Hoo we may not run out of space now! Well for another year..... *sigh* Damn downloadable games..... They should send you a disk so it doesn't need 100% of the game to remain on the HDD. Oh and now to redownload all of the purchased games. That'll take a few days.
