Does it require anything extra? Or will it just work in your PS3?

Plug'n'play tongue.gif You will need a USB storage device that has the latest update on (3.72 is the latest) on for it to work properly but you can get that for free from the PS3 website from your country. If you want a short tutorial for how to do that (It is very easy tongue.gif) let me know.

If I remember correctly the ps3 didn't get performance boosts from a SSD because the data bus and controller on the ps3 were so old they didnt take advantage of the speed..

Let's try it.
post #18 of 30
I received my SSD today and went to backup my PS3 and bam! no luck. W_T_H?!?!? Then I read that PS3 only supports external drives formatted FAT32 - not NFTS - the standard formatting out of Windows 7 (I couldn't find an option other than NFTS in Windows 7.) So i read try the command line approach. Fine gave that a shot and 10 minutes in it was only 1% of the way finished.

Then I ran across this - CLICKY - this is the Verbatim FAT32 formatting program. Formatted my external with this program, plugged it into the PS3, and BAM! it's backing up while I type. Soon I will have sweet, sweet SSD operation in my PS3. Hope this helps anyone else out there who got the "Insert Media at the Save Location" message when trying to use the PS3 backup utility.

The reason I did this was for Rage and Rage only, not sure on the other performance benefits. I had major texture-pop before and now I have none or at least I cannot tell.

This..

I don't think you will be getting near the full speed from the SSD with a PS3..

Waste of a SSD, if you ask me.
