Re: 80gb Ps3 Corrupted HD/Worth $50?
I replaced the harddrive in mine the week after I got it. It was the 60 gig model or whatever the lowest level one was. I put a scorpio black 250g drive in there.
you have to download the PS3 OS (which you can get from sony's website I think) and put it onto a FAT32 usb drive into a folder with a specific name that the PS3 will know to look in.
From there it installs the OS and is good to go. Pretty straight forward and numerous tutorials on how to do this.
I'd say for $50 + the cost of a bigger drive, that's a STEAL.
