I hear this is a fairly simple process and was wondering if any of you guys have done this. I guess my question is how do I back up my current stuff. Can I use my laptop to back up these items. If so would I just use my flash drive? Also can I upgrade using this, Seagate 120GB Serial ATA 2.5" Hard Drives for Notebook? Any help would be appreciated.:bowdown:

haven't done it myself, but all of the needed information is in the Manual for the PS3 I believe. If it's not there, there are a gazillion resources on "teh webs".

Yeah, I wasnt really worried about the actual removing as I am about my games. I wonder if I just redownload from the store. If that model would be ok. I would hate to buy one and it not work correctly.
