    • Read this guide before you start replacing the hard disk on your PS3.

      It is possible to replace the hard disk on your PS3. Before doing so, please note the following:

      • Remove the hard disk in a location out of the reach of small children to help prevent accidental swallowing of small parts such as screws.
      • The inside of the system is hot directly after use. Allow time for the system to cool down before starting to remove the hard disk.
      • Be careful not to injure yourself when removing or handling the screw cover or the hard disk.
      • Be sure to reattach the screw cover and the HDD bay cover before turning the PS3 system on. If these covers are not attached, heat may build up inside the system.
      • To attach or remove screws, use an appropriate crosshead screwdriver. If the size does not match, the groove on the screw's head may be damaged.
      • Depending on the type of service performed, the hard disk that had been in use prior to servicing may need to be reformatted. Be sure to back up important data in advance.
      • To help protect your personal information and prevent misuse of this information by others, be sure to clear passwords for all PlayStation Network accounts and remove the hard disk before submitting the PS3 system for service.
