Does anyone know whether there is an upper limit to the size of a HDD in a PS3 fat? I'm not going to put anything crazy big in it, but I was thinking maybe half a terabyte. I read one site that claimed that the max size is 320 Gb -- surely false, yes? I also read that the HDD must spin at at least 5400 RPM (I'm looking at 7200 RPM) and that the filesystem should be FAT32. Anything else I should know before I embark on this endavour? I appreciate your advice!

Just a warning... don't lose the screws or cross thread them... they are tough to get and you need them...

I remember reading people putting 640GB Hard Drives in there PS3's. As far as the filesystem, the PS3 will format it when you put it in for the first time.

Adam T is right about the screws, use a bigger screwdriver than you'll think you need.
