Do you mean a new 160gb HDD ? If you mean a new console then as soon as you put the HDD in it'll want to format it.
You'll need to backup the contents of the drive using the original console, then restore onto the new console, but you'll lose some things, not sure what.....or you can try and use the Data Transfer Utility connecting both old and new consoles together.
So Axum, bit vague with my request. I have a 40 gb ps3 that i am replacing with a 160gb slim ps3 and I would like to have all that is on my existing hard drive transfered to the new 160gb ps3 so that all mine and the boys game saves are on it. Can this be done as simply as connecting a usb cable between the two? Merry Xmas!
That was very clever! Will have to learn how to do that when I have mastered transferring data!
If everyone used google like that for questions, what would be the point of having a forum.......!!
Thank you though, don't forget goodwill to all men.
