It should be pretty clear, sitting towards the front of the bottom plate. Now you need to slide the piece of plastic under the optical drive to the side just a little. You should now see two little pieces of wire in the space where the flap was. You'll need to remove all four to change your old PS3 hard drive for your new one.This flap will reveal a little screw that keeps a piece of plastic in place just under the Blu-ray drive. When you've swapped the drives, screw the screws back in and re-seat the hard drive in the console.You'll find this option in the system settings menu in settings.Alternatively, to just save all your save games go to the game header in the main menu, select save data utility and then copy multiple to save your games to USB.If you opt for a 5400rpm drive, another spec you should see listed alongside capacity, you'll get similar performance to the standard PS3 HDD.
If this information looks familiar, like maybe from the Play Station forums, that’s because Ftwrthtx wrote this for us. Japan’s update file isn’t the same as the US or EU update file.We're going to deal with how to take out the hard drive of the PS3 Slim and more recent PS3 Super Slim, which is the model you can still buy new today.To get the hard drive out of a Slim PS3, you need to turn it off, turn it over and pull off a little plastic flap on its underside. The PS3's hard drive is fixed to a metal plate using four little screws on its underside.The PS3 may not be hot news in the game world anymore, but we can guarantee you probably still haven't played half of its best titles and we're still waiting on the PS4 to really show us its best.However, most models of Sony's last console don't have enough hard drive space to store all that many game installs.
Something like the digital version of Uncharted 3 will eat up a huge chunk of an older PS3's HDD.
