    Hi guys,

    just need some help, i want to sell my ps3 but it has got the Ylod, so the data has not yet been deleted, iv been told if i put the Hard drive into another working PS3 it will format the hard drive which is good, however when my friend puts his original hard drive back will it format that too??

    Im going to try the hair dryer fix too!

    please let me know if anybody has tried this!

    No, as long as your friend puts it back into HIS PS3 it won't ask him to reformat it. If he puts it into a different PS3 it will ask him to reformat.
