although I would probably do this http://www.ebuyer.com/668553-hgst-travel...dd-0j38065

£30 for 500gb, hitachi drives are rather reliable.

someone give me a 40gb hdd for free on facebook, tried the tricks online to put it in without a caddy but cant seem to make it sit right, so ill wait til the caddy gets here, ordered today and it was dispatched today, the guy i got the harddrive from said something about i have to put the update on the drive to put it into the ps3, but thats a old old thing isnt it? the new ones im sure are basically plug and play because it formats the drive regardless of whats on it

Nothing about an update

Here's how to update the system software via a PC
http://faq.en.playstation.com/app/answer.../related/1

I changed my PS4's HDD to a 2TB one and after backing up from the old HDD had to install the latest system software from a PC to a flashstick, put that in the USB port of the PS4 and go into the system boot and load the update to get everything installed - took an ages as I was using the system software from Playstation.com and not UK.Playstation.com
